Hotel Al Kalaa: The accommodation
This year I decided to seek out a new hideout in Chaouen, my regular haunt had, in recent years, fallen into disrepair, and the owners showed little interest in carrying out essential repairs, last year this sad state of affairs led to very low prices being charged, which attracted a rather unsavoury type of clientele ( les gens louches) whose company I avoided at every opportunity.....
I arrived at Chefchaouen Gare Routiere on the CTM bus from Casablanca, and after a brief acrimonious exchange with the toilet gardien, who charged three dirhams, instead of the statutory one dirham for the privilege of urinating in his dirty WC, I started walking up the very steep hill towards the town. Fortunately, a taxi appeared, I flagged it down, and gave the French-speaking driver directions to Hotel Al Kalaa. I had read two positive reviews about this place on Tripadvisor, and decided to investigate, its location is close to Bab Souk and Bab el Ain, both busy main gates to the Medina, so ideal for my purposes.
The desk clerk was pleasant and spoke French with a smattering of English, he offered me a choice of two rooms on the second floor, one overlooking the busy street and another further back along the side of the building, I decided on the side room which would be quieter. The room was clean and had a window which did not have much of a view, but enough to avoid a sense of claustrophobia. There was a small restaurant area adjacent to the reception, although lack of demand had suspended any activity there, but there were plenty of other eateries nearby in the Medina.
My (large) bundle of grubby clothes were washed for a tip of forty dirhams by the cleaner lady, via the auspices of the young night desk clerk, who spoke excellent English.
This hotel is new, so everything works, hot water, electricity, plumbing etc., I really could not find anything to moan about ( a first for Benny!!)
The hotel was very quiet, although still off season, there were hardly any other guests, a forty percent downturn in foreign tourist numbers over the past three years, has forced many businesses to close down ( information from reliable bar room informants.)
Nothing outstanding, just a clean modern hotel, with pleasant friendly staff, ideally located just outside the Medina.

Hotel Rif: A hotel with view
The hotel is just below the medina walls with good rooms amd nice views at the front but not at the back.
The staff at the hotel are very friendly and also is popular with tourist groups.
The hotel also has a restaurant with alcohol licence but at the time I visit it was not selling alcohol.
Basic rooms but nothing special.
single room DH180 = £17

Hotel Koutoubia: Alaoui Omar
New, clean, beautifully decorated with incredibly friendly and genuine staff and owner. Each room is different and when we went we were given the choice of where we wanted to stay. Each room has an en suite bathroom with showers.
A double room cost us 200 night which roughly equates to 20 euros (10 euros each).
The first night we where there the owners son TOOK us to a restaurant that he recommended to us and stayed to drink a tea with us and talk to us about Morocco and his life.
The second night we were invited to have dinner with the owner and another man who worked there. They cooked us a lovely tagine and we stayed and talked with them until I was too tired to continue. This was one of my best experiences of Chaouen as I learnt a lot about how people really live here and there thoughts and feelings towards their foreign visitors and so forth.
Every morning they made us a delightful breakfast with a choice of different things including local cheese and honey and natural orange juice.
