    Quaint and beautiful. Perfect introduction to Tangier and the Medina. Rashid recommended a restaurant called Restaurant Kasbah. It was good but obviously an arrangement for gullible tired tourists as it was overpriced by Moroccan standards.

    We loved the hotel and it's location. The staff was friendly and helpful especially Rachid. You should however take the ferry from Tarifa it will take you to walking distance to the hotel. We didn't know that and took the ferry from Algeciras instead and had to ride a taxi for one hour to get to the hotel

    The Riad was hard to find. I hurt my leg on the trip and they were not really willing to help. We cut our stay short with them and went elsewhere. It was very cold in there and no heater. It was just a bad experience for us.

  • 4.0.Fair

    If you’re a fan of bad services, broken promises, nagging and inconvenient accommodations, then this place is for you! Be prepared to haul your luggage about half a kilometer to the Riad. Up and down stairs and hills. That’s really not bad. But when you arrive, you might get talked over by reception. Breathe deeply and let them show you your room. There will be no bathroom in your room. You’ll need to go down to the bottom floor, navigate a narrow stairwell with winding uneven height stairs in the middle of the night if nature calls. Don’t worry, you can hang a towel over the peephole in the bathroom door if you need privacy. If you’re really high maintenance and you don’t like the broken window in your room, your accommodated with a curtain that you can pull over the broken glass. We had to catch a flight and were leaving at 8:30 am the following morning. A taxi was arranged for the transport and that WAS perfect. Breakfast was supposed to be served for us at 8 since we were leaving early, a very nice gesture and we appreciated it. When we got to our table, the kitchen staff refused to give us our breakfast. The manager on duty went in to talk to the cook, she must have told him to leave, because he did. He told us that we wouldn’t get breakfast. Anyways, beautiful experience. Highly recommend this to people that I dislike.

    Well-located traditional riad in the heart of the old city. You definitely have the feel of living in someones home. The bed was not the most comfortable, but breakfast on the roof was lovely and the people who run the place are friendly and attentive. Would stay again.
