Review of Pension la Castellana Chefchaouen, Morocco

A well-established small hotel, Pension La Castellana is a popular choice with backpackers in Chefchaouen thanks to its budget prices, standard of accommodation and great location. It is right at the thick of things, only a minute or so off the main Plaza Uta el Hammam at the heart of the Medina.

On the outside, it doesn’t look much different from the rest of the houses in Chefchaouen – painted light blue with a small entrance-way. Inside, the lovely Arabo-Hispanic tiled courtyard is quite impressive, circled on two floors by small but clean rooms. All the bathrooms and showers are shared, but there is plenty of hot water. There is also a lovely roof-top terrace with panoramic views over the Medina and the surrounding hills.
