After the hustle and bustle that is Tangier, our time at Riad Baraka was like stepping into a new world. We have no complaints about our double room with bathroom. The breakfast options were all lovely and priced fair. The owner and her staff run a professional--albeit, laid-back operation--effectively keeping guests happy. They are eager to organize tours and answer... More

Chefchaouen is one of the most beautiful places I've been and Riad Baraka is a great place to enjoy it from. We were warmly welcomed by Joseph and owner Anne, who both had lots of info to offer, they helped us plan a day trip to Akchour and our travel onward to Fes. All the staff of the riad were... More

Normally my girlfriend and I book the first night in a hostel when we arrive to a new city/town. This had been the case at Baraka. As soon as we entered there was a warm family feeling in the lounge area on the first floor. It made us feel very comfortable, and welcome. We immediately booked another night. Long story... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Baraka. The facilities and the rooms plus bathrooms are super clean and probably one of the most comfortable we have had on our month long trip in Morocco! The showers are also very clean and very private. The breakfast is inexpensive and is delicious and a little different than the typical breakfast you might find... More

Coming into Chefchaouen, my two friends and I didn't have a place to stay. We walked into the Baraka and got the last 3 available beds! The staff was super friendly.
