The owner and his family all speak Italian and some Italian tourists I met seemed to have made it a home from home. One of the owners family brought us some wine from Tangier and they really seemed eager to help without trying to fleece you. Each room had a fireplace so we had a log fire every evening to keep us warm. Free Wifi. Has a terrace and a lounge to chill in.</sleep>
Travellers hiking in the Rif Mountain area close to the town have had stones thrown at them by armed men to scare them away from areas of marijuana production. While most of the growers may ignore you, some may offer to sell to you as well. While many travelers partake in or even come here specifically for the abundance of marijuana (hashish), understand that it is definitely illegal and heavily punishable. The best way to avoid running afoul of any local growers is to hire a sanctioned local guide.
 
Watch out for a restaurant close to one of the entrees to the Medina run by a really fat man who will charge you for everything that he gives you on the table. Several restaurant wont write the drinks on the menu and then charge 15 - 20DH for a soft drink. Always make sure you get the right change back some will try to steal five or ten DH. The change of getting tricked is higher in Chefchaouen than anywhere in Morocco and caution should be taken.
