Riad Rifandalus

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife and I stayed at the Rifandalus Riad for one night and the only regret that we have is that we did not spend more time there ! Do not expect to have huge buffet during breakfast, do not expect a swimming pool and spa, you should not expect neither a buttler or a concierge. But what we found there was even better. All the staff that we had the chance to meet there were genuinly welcoming and nice with us and we truly felt like they were welcoming us in their home. We spent our nigt in the Rabat Suite, the best one according to one of the receptionnist and we were not disapointed at all. The Suite was cosy and we had an incredible view over the Medina and the mountains. The day we'll come again in Chaouen we will definately come here again. And a special thanks to the lady at the reception (sorry I forgot her name) !

This little Riad is located right in the middle of the Medina with restaurants, shops, and tourist attractions all around you. As in any Medina, you cannot drive straight here but must be let off in a parking lot outside the Medina. You then walk and hire someone to carry your luggage. Be sure and check with the driver or the Riad as to what the appropriate tip is for these luggage carriers. They will ask for ALOT if you're a tourist. On the top floor there is a lovely little terrace (inside and out) where a simple breakfast is served. Lovely views from here and cozy room. Chefchaouen is fascinating place in blue. Great architecture, alleyways, and things happening everywhere. Definitely worth a day or two to explore

We visited the riad to stop for a quick tea and refreshment. The Cafe upstairs is stunning and very clean. The women were very friendly and happy we felt very welcomed and were amazed by how beautiful the View and terrace was. This was a very calm spot and I wish to stay for longer!

This hotel is located in the heart of the Medina. It is few steps away from famous tourist stops and other interesting sights. Our room was clean, had a window, a small walk-in closet, and a charming little bathroom. I totally loved the dining area. Breakfast was delicious, too. The view from the roof deck was breathtaking! Above all, the staff were very helpful. When we arrived, they met us at the main road and carried our luggages for us. They also booked us a guide (upon our request). Over all, it was an amazing stay. We will stay here again, for sure, the next time we visit Chefchaouen.

It locate middle of Medina. So you really enjoy the taste of blue every second. I was taking CTM bus from Casablanca arrived at almost 20:00. If you arrive late it’s hard to find so recommend to use google map or something.

Stayed there for 3 nights, the room has amazing decorations and the crew are really helpful and clean, my room was really good yet some of my group members didn't enjoy their rooms so much, not all of them have ACs and some rooms are really small for luggage, others have no privacy so when you open the window you are literally in the street. The only bad note is that the hot water comes from electric heaters that reserve water, so if you are 4 in the same room most probably the hot water will finish by the 3rd. The location is very strategic in the center of the market and really close to Outta El Hamam. The breakfast is average like all Morocco's hotels but the 2 terraces have a really nice view. Note: if you are staying in this hotel you must have light luggage with wheels that you can roll cause there are no cars that go inside the streets of Chefchaoun, the streets are very narrow and steep.

Our ideal booking - which would have been one double bed with a city view - wasn't available, so we ended up taking a suite just so we could have a double bed. Our room was on the inside of the Riad, and because it was right above the reception desk it was extremely noisy. With very little natural light the room was also dark and the lighting was fairly fluorescent. The hotel has quiet hours posted, but they were ignored by many of the other guests and don't seem to be observed or enforced by staff. We asked to move to another room but they couldn't accommodate us, even though it seemed like several other rooms were open. The shower has good water pressure on cold, but when turned to hot the pressure was quite low. The terrace upstairs is very beautiful - that was definitely the nicest part, and the location of the hotel is wonderful, an easy walk to everything you want to see, so that was convenient. The included breakfast was fine, but wasn't more that a crepe with jam and some bread and juice. Overall, if you can get one of the city view rooms you'll probably have a better experience. Two final things to note - the hotel only accepts cash payments, and there is a notice that they may ask for a marriage license for couples staying in the same room - my boyfriend and I thankfully didn't get asked for that, but it's something we weren't aware of when we booked.

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at this magnificent place. Each room has its bathroom, is nicely furnished and has its very own them. The ryad is impressive,clean and next to everything in Chefchaoun. The breakfast is soooooo delicious. I recommend this beautiful place! A visiter absolument!

This riad had a wonderful terrace with a view over the city. They serve breakfast here as well as tea all day. The location seems to have been renovated recently. It is in a prime location inside the old town (medina), a couple streets off the main square.

The riad is nicely furnished and the staff is very friendly and accomodating to us. The only problem is that the plugs are too few and placed in hard-to-reach distances for the heaters, which greatly inconvenienced my elderly aunts.
