Riad Zaitouna Chaouen

Hello!
My favourite city in the North of  Morocco was without a doubt Chefchaouen, also called in shorter way Chaouen, famous for being totally blue, magical! I've been wanting to visit this city for a longtime and seeing it has exceeded my expectations.

When I look for somewhere to stay, I usually book the rooms through Booking.com or Tripadvisor because I like reading reviews from other travellers before booking. Riad Zaitouna called my atention for its high score on both websites, the price per room is very economic (around 35€ per night with breakfast included) and the reviews from other travellers were marvellous, the Riad is stunning, painted and decorated in blue just like the streets in the city, 

Hola!
Mi ciudad favorita del norte de Marruecos ha sido sin lugar a duda Chefchaouen, tambien llamada de forma mas corta Chaouen, famosa por estar pintada totalmente de azul, parece de fantasia! La llevo queriendo visitar hace mucho tiempo y verla ha superado mis expectativas.
Cuando busco alojamiento al viajar, normalmente miro habitaciones en Booking.com y Tripadvisor ya que me gusta leer las opiniones de otros viajeros antes de reservar algo. Riad Zaitouna me llamo la atencion por su alta puntuacion en las dos paginas web, el precio por habitacion es muy economico (sobre 35€ la noche con desayuno incluido) y las opiniones de otros viajeros eran fabulosas, el Riad es bellisimo, esta todo decorado y pintado en azul al igual que las calles de la ciudad.



View of Chaouen, the BLUE CITY


We arrived at night, very tired after nearly 5 hours by bus but we had a great surprise, the Riad was beautiful. Beds were comfortable, AC and WiFi worked well and the bathroom was large and very nicely decorated too. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, they speak English, Spanish and French.Their recommendations for restaurants, guides and places to see were excellent. The Riad is located in the Medina that it is where you want to be if you come to Chaouen, taxis can't drive inside the narrow streets but it is very easy to get to Zaitouna from one of the Medina entries (Hotel Parador) where the driver will leave you, then we just went up narrow streets for 5 minutes and the Riad is one of the top with excellent views.

Llegamos ya por la noche y bastante cansadas despues de casi 5 horas de autobus pero nos llevamos una gran sorpresa, el Riad era precioso. Camas comodisimas, AC y Wifi perfectos y la habitacion grande con una decoracion monisima. Los empleados son muy amables y simpaticos, hablan ingles, espanol y frances. Sus recomendaciones en restaurantes, guias y sitios que ver fueron perfectas. El Riad esta situado en la Medina que es donde te tienes que alojar si vienes a Chaouen, los taxis no pueden entrar ya que las calles son muy estrechas y es todo peatonal, pero el taxi te deja en una de las entradas (Hotel Parador) y de alli son menos de  5 minutos andando cuesta arriba pero no es una calle muy empinada y al estar alto tiene buenisimas vistas.



 

 


Good Morning from Riad Zaitouna!
The room was looking even more gorgeous at sunlight.
Buenos dias from Riad Zaitouna!
La habitacion se ve incluso ms bonita a la luz del dia.






The breakfast is served in the roof terrace, they have two terraces, both with the same great views of the city and the mountains.
El desayuno lo sirven en las terrazas, hay dos y ambas con las mismas fantasticas vistas de la ciudad y las montanas.


 

                

Wonderful views at breakfast from Riad Zaitouna
                                 Beautiful hall and stairs, you can see the pretty decoration.
                              Encantadoras escaleras y patio donde podeis ver la bonita decoracion






The Hall

 Chaouen is located in the Rif Mountains and the only way to arrive here is by bus from bigger cities like Tangier, Fes or Rabat where there are airports, the trip takes several hours from all of them, the bus company is called CTM and the ticket can be bought online.
 So if you come to Chaouen, you now where to stay! :)

Enjoy the week everyone! 
XXX



 Chaouen esta situado en las Montanas Rif y el unico modo de llegar aqui es en coche o en autobus desde ciudades mas grandes con aeropuerto como Tanger, Fez o Rabat, el viaje es de varias horas desde todas ellas, la compania de autobuses se llama CTM y el billete se puede comprar por internet, asi puedes reservar asiento antes de viajar a Marruecos.
Osea que si vienes a Chaouen, ya sabes donde quedarte! :)

Besos y Feliz semana!
