*Apartment was cold - we had to keep the heater on pretty much all the time *Don't expect great english and hospitality like other reviews - we struggled to get anything across with the staff. *very small bathroom *No soap - this is the only place I've ever stayed at with no soap. When we asked at reception they didn't really understand and said they didn't have any. When we went and asked again - after a while we were given a big industrial bottle of soap to use. I mean seriously just provide soap for the rooms. *also organise your own taxis as the hotel charges significantly more than the going rates. *Breakfast was fine - A cold breakfast served in a small room. A few different types of breads, jam, juice. *Overall I wouldn't stay here again, there are better options available.
*central location *decent size apartment *wifi worked well *early check in *best way to reach the hotel if you have luggage is to enter from Bab Al Ain gate, turn left and keep walking until you find the riad on the left hand side.

It might be a little bit cold if you forget to close the window, but all in all the bed is warm and cosy :)
Our experience in Chefchaouen was wonderful. We liked the design of the hotel, especially the room Marrakesh. The breakfast we were served was delicious and plentiful. The owner of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. He talked with us and even let us use the computer and provided umbrellas when it was raining. Also, the staff was friendly.

No bad experiences at all. Perhaps breakfast could be improved a little bit -- the sfinj is served cold and its very heavy on greasy breads -- but this is a really terrific hotel.
Really nice people at Rifandalus, and the rooms are very well set up for 3 people or more. Breakfast was mainly Moroccan breads but good ones. They have a great rooftop terrace and are developing it further; this will be spectacular in a few months. Staff speaks multiple languages and is very helpful. Highly recommended.

Staff were polite and friendly Location excellent; wifi worked well; Breakfast good Self contained apartment was a nice surprise; Decor a little tired but other than that it's a lovely place to stay. They were busy renovating the terrace but can imagine how nice it would be to have breakfast there once it's finished

It was very cold inside (January). The A/C helped but you have to be careful not to blow the fuses. Happened once during our stay and it took a while for the staff to figure it out. Communication was ok in an English/French/Spanish mix but don't expect fluent English skills as mentioned in other reviews - depends on the active staff I guess.
Very good breakfast and friendly staff, lots of space and nice decoration in Suite Agadir. Perfect location to explore the Medina and surrounding hills. All in all a very pleasant stay.

It he power was off for three times during the winter night. Seems like the staffs have no idea what to deal with it.

Excellent location, right in the centre of this little town. It also has a very lovely balcony where you can have a good view of the colourful, blue-washed medina. The breakfast is sumptuous and delicious. The room is air-conditioned, so it is really warm at night. Staff are really friendly too.

The breakfast had very good quality. The room was at the center of the town, in the very good location. The staff and the owner were very helpfull.

Don't open the jar containing honey if you prefer to have the breakfast in the balcony.... the bees will come to share the breakfast with you...
The Riad itself is lovely and located at a upper side of the mountain, and thus you can enjoy a fantastic view from the balcony. Youssef is a wonderful host that he showed us around quickly and recommended good places to visit and nice restaurants for eating. Don't worry if you come here with empty mind, you just need to follow the routes suggested by Youssef. I would highly recommend this accommodation to visitors to Chefchaouen!

Faulty electricity, but that is expected at times. Several broken items in the room, (i.e. window latches, shower head, etc). Just needs some good maintenance.
Owner was amazing and was willing to do anything to make our stay a success. The location is great and within walking distance to everything. Parking was extremely close too. All of the staff were extremely pleasant. Very affordable.

Had the Rabat room up top, was a bit cold but we had plenty of blankets. Breakfast was amazing and the fried donuts are the best part. Staff was helpful and courteous, and the owner was particularly friendly. Would highly recommend.

In all honesty, this was one of the best hotel experiences I've had in all of my travels. The place surprised me on multiple occasions: The location could not be better. Right in the Medina, close to everything, and still quiet; the view from the terrace that was attached to my room was incredible; the staff was super accommodating in any way one could ask for. The owner, Youssef, an educated young man, who speaks perfect English brought me tea and fruits to my room when I returned from my journey in the city in the evening. The following day, the staff offered to bring breakfast to my room as well. I can go on about it, but the basics most people are interested in are as follows: Best location for proximity to things but also quiet, great views, wifi works well, air conditioner (with heat also) works well, incredible multi-lingual staff, good food, unbeatable price.

The staffs were really nice and friendly. The locational also quit good.
November 11, 2014
Comfortable, well located, staff advaices were amazing, The quality/price is the best we had in marocco.
November 8, 2014
Youssef is just the perfect host. He was always around when we needed help (even showed me the way to the hair cutter and translated for me). When we felt sick they treated us like family (his father is a doctor and supported as well). The location is also very central in the medina.

Shower could be improved.
Great Riad located in the middle of the blue medina. Two minutes walk to the main square. We met the owner and his father and they were extremely helpful and welcoming. We stayed in the suite, which was huge and only slightly more expensive that the other rooms. Breakfast was lovely. Chefchause is certainly a highlight for any traveler to Morocco. Go to Aladdin's for the view, Riad Hassan for the food. Breathtaking views from the Old Spanish Mosque.

The ONLY thing i would change would be a few signs withe the words 'Riad Rifandalus' and an arrow placed at prime intersections in the medina. This would help the wanderer find his / her way home!
Riad Rifandalus is perfectly situated in the Sale medina. A nice quiet enclave away from the hustle and bustle just meters away. We would return anytime!

We have been on a three month trip across Europe, and decided last minute to visit Morocco. We had read some great reviews of Riad Rifandalous so decided to try it. Youseuf and his staff were so friendly, attentive and informative. Amazing location. Beautiful authentic and clean. You must stay here if in Chefchaouen. Simply the best.
October 26, 2014
Very beautifully decored hotel in perfect and central location. Hotels staff was extremely kind, they made sure you're visit in Chaouen would be unforgettable from every point of view: very delicious local breakfast was prepared every morning at the time you asked for it, they also gave us good advices about transport services, fair taxi prices etc. I would definitely recommend this place to sleep over. We left with the will to return one day...
October 23, 2014
Decor needs refreshing but that has started and Youssef is modernising and will remodel rooms and terrace.
Nice room opening onto terrace, Youssef the manager speaks good English and was very helpful. Staff were friendly and Riad is located right in the heart of things.

If only I knew how amazing this place and it's staff was before I only booked one night! Treat yourself if you're staying in Chefchouen and make Riad Rifandalus your host home. The people were great, location has you right near town center, service was perfect, everyone was so helpful, the rooms were clean and felt like home, breakfast on the roof overlooked the city! Oh the memories in just a single day and night's stay. The room we stayed in was a two bedroom apartment with a bathroom and a kitchen. Everything about this place felt as comfortable as home. During our stay at chefchouen we made a nomadic go of it by staying at different places each night, but this was by far the place to stay if you're visiting Chefchouen. If you're only staying for a night, treat yourself to this Riad. If you're staying longer, there's no place I'd recommend more highly than Riad Rifandalus; it really made our trip staying here.
