Hello, I've actually come here because I saw a recommendation about the Hotel Continental in Tangiers. I've traveled around the north of Morocco, from Tangiers to Saidia. The coastal area is very nice but overall it's rather run-down. I suppose it always has been, since the area gets so few tourists. There are, however, countless Moroccans visiting from Europe. We were in Tangiers for a total of three days. I had always just passed through, but this time I went with the idea of going to the Hotel Continental, you know Paul Bowles, Allen Ginsberg, and Brian Jones all stayed. A hotel with lots of history. The truth is that it's great: the location, the building, the quiet rooms. And the price isn't bad. I recommend it. Getting there is pretty interesting though. Tangiers also has something that no other cities in Morocco have. I'm not sure if its the history of the Casbah, or something else... But once you finally arrive and see the silhouette, you get happy on the inside. Also, if you go to the Casa de España, they give you a little plate of fish with each beer, and after two beers you end up having dinner.
Although Asilah has several places to stay, usually these places are not known for their charm. For this reason, the Patio de la Luna is recommended. Simple, rustic, but adorable, the Patio de la Luna is at the entrance to the medina. White and blue, decorated between Andalusian and Moroccan, and owner of a small plant-filled courtyard, the small hotel this run by a friendly Spanish couple.
The Hostal Gernika (without a u) in Chefchaouen, is a pleasant place to spend a night in the blue medina. Its Spanish owner who bought the property two decades ago, has looked after the details of the rooms, the bathrooms, the lounge and the terrace, making you feel at home for their cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff who make it a homely, cozy hostel. Raul, a Spanish guy at the front desk serving will not hesitate to help you with all the questions you may have and using his time to strike up a pleasant conversation with the traveler. One of the attractions of the hostel is the prices, the double room with bath and shower costs 200 dirhams (20) euros, and the breakfast is extra about 3.50, any traveler tired of the routine of tea with mint or coffee, as in the Gernika's exquisite bread with tomato and olive oil, white coffee, goat cheese and the delicious orange juice, makes you think you're on the Spanish coast, taking a good breakfast. To add to that there is wifi in the hostel and wonderful views from the terrace. A place to consider.
The Minzah was witness to history. This Spanish-Moorish building was opened in 1930 and remains to this day one of the most luxurious hotels in the city, and a symbol of the charm of a unique era. Its location overlooking the Mediterranean and the old Medina sets this place apart, and some of the most colorful characters from the world of culture, entertainment, and politics have stayed here. One of the distinctive features of the hotel is the central courtyard tiles and whitewashed walls which recall Southern Spain. In the center of the courtyard, there's a small fountain and some lemon trees to provide a little freshness on hot, sunny days. The Minzah is both a hotel from the past and present, with its spa, café, restaurant and swimming pool surrounded by palm trees. It offers luxurious services to every traveler who's lucky enough to visit this beautiful Mediterranean city.
This is a place steeped in history. It's was the Dutch consul's residence in Tetouan during the time when the city was the capital diplomatic of the Cherifian Empire. The Ryad has remained virtually unchanged for 300 years, for better and for worse. For example, the windows of my single room had no insulation, only bars, so the moisture in the air was palpable and the lighting was poor, even with the lights turned on. It was once a room used by the service staff, but the suites used by the consular and their guests were different. These were large, bright and more comfortable. Apparently, the house next door was built without a permit to be wall to wall with my room, but the builders directly used the wall of the Ryad. Thus, the Friday night noise hindered my sleep until I advised the person responsible for the noise and shouted a couple of words at the inhabitants of the house. All this being said, it's the only accommodation in Tetuan's Medina and it's worth knowing about. I only paid 150 dh, including breakfast.
Considered the jewel of the southern Mediterranean ports, Port Marina Smir, in northern Morocco, just 10 km from Ceuta and the Strait of Gibraltar, close to the Costa del Sol. 450 berths up to 60 meters. Port Marina Smir is managed by the Moroccan subsidiary of the European group of companies nautical Marina Group Investments, which owns Marina Marbella SA Construction. Completed in 1992 and today enjoys excellent prospects as the first marina in a country immersed in a rapid process of modernization, economic growth and getting closer to Europe.
This is certainly one of the most charming places in Chefchaouen. Its owner, Valerie, is a Swiss woman who has spent many years living in Morocco. She has created a very nice space decorated in Indian and Moroccan style, with a terrace where you can see beautiful views overlooking the village and the mountains.
This is a typical Ryad or hotel located in a house with four floors which has been nicely restored to give the guest a very pleasant experience. One feature that stands out is the immediate brightness and especially the balcony with breathtaking views over the Medina. The restoration was superb and the attention to detail is magnificent, from the painted walls (in the typical Chefchauoen blue) to the shutters curtains of cloth or fabric djellabas, through to the furniture and plants that adorn every corner. Really a commendable job. The management is really friendly and very informative about the different areas that you can visit in Chefchaouen (monuments, souks, restaurants, etc.) or the possible activities to do in the area (walking, hiking, etc.). You should call or contact the Ryad to book in advance, especially during high season (summer, long weekends, etc.).
Asilah's medina is one of the most beautiful, clean, quiet and relaxing ones in Morocco!!! The houses are in the medina, and they are clean, cozy and many with ocean views. Life is very quiet and you can make many trips: beaches, caves, Sidi-Mugaits where you can visit a beach bar called "Xiringo Miguel", where you can eat a potato omelette and sardines or grilled chicken , from tagine to couscous, in a super laid back, clean and very hospitable environment.
Five minutes from the pulsating Outa Hammam Nerja square in Riad, in the heart of the old Medina in Chefchaouen and surrounded by old walls. 300 meters away you can see the famous Ras El Maa waterfall and 300m from the lively Plaza de Outa Hammam is the Riad Nerja. This is where charm from the past lives on every day. Its strong façade insulates it from the hustle and bustle, and the interior is fresh and has subtle aromas of traditional Andalusian architecture. The colors of the Islamic world in the central halls survive to this day. The interior still retains its wonderful mosaics of yesteryear and a central balcony that illuminates and brings peace to the whole house. Wrapped in blue and white ... windows, original floors and Berber carpet. Quite a clever combination of comfort and colonial Moroccan tradition. is a good place for a holiday, its manager and employees are responsible for making your stay comfortable and pleasant.
This is a cozy hotel run by a Spaniard and a Moroccan. The price is good. This hotel boasts a very cozy and tranquil atmosphere. Typical and traditional accommodation. It's in the Jewish Quarter, behind the Great Mosque, 50 meters from the Plaza Uta el-Hammam in the heart of Chefchaouen. With several floors and a terrace with panoramic views over the Kasbah and the mountains, the rooms all have private bathrooms. It has collective kitchen where we prepare our own food, which is very appreciated by the convenience and cost savings. Being constructed on an old hammam, from the "Well of Princess Anka" You can see the crystal clear waters and an old legend says, who looks waters find love and riches.
Le Mirage is a luxury hotel located in the suburbs of Tangier, just 20 minutes from the airport and near the La Montagne (a wealthy neighborhood). It has 25 luxury suites and is next to the "Royale Golf Club" golf course. The views from the rooms are breathtaking since it's located on a cliff above the Atlantic Ocean. All rooms have large windows and private terraces, plus the usual amenities. It even has a private beach. Le Mirage is famous for regularly having Tangiers movie stars, businessmen or government chairmen as guests, all of which say it's their favorite hotel in the area. Is very close to the Caves of Hercules and Cape Spartel, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic.
I recommend spending a few days in the small town of Chefchaouen, specifically in the hotel-restaurant Casa Hassan. The people are very friendly, it's not too crowded, and fairly quiet for walks in the mountains. I went with a group of 11 people and we booked through a travel agency. The hotel is charming and completely renovated. The living room has three fireplaces and several sofas to keep out the cold. The rooms are set around a courtyard using local architecture. If the hotel is full, it can be noisy with the bustle in the main hall, so I recommend the terrace rooms with spectacular views of the city landscape. Our meals in the restaurant and breakfast at the hotel were included in our rates. The food in this restaurant is highly recommended, for just 8 euros you get a fixed menu. In my opinion, the best dishes were the harira soup and the tagines, specifically the sweet veal! Spectacular! We went to eat at other restaurants and this was the best by far. I hope you enjoy your stay here, just as we did.
This is a quiet and relaxing house. It is very colorful and in a very clean and quiet environment, no noise, no cars, no abnormalities, a paradise. The house has 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom and a terrace. They are near super clean beaches, especially the holy beach where you can eat divinely in Xiringo of Michael, at the end of the beach.
One bedroom apartment with a queen-sized bed, one complete bathroom, American kitchen, eating area, living room, all completely furnished and decorated Mediterranean-style with Arab details. It's a pretty apartment.
Situated in the Sibbani neighborhood, very close to Plaza Uta Hammam. The building can be reached walking and there is parking available.
The Hotel Andalucia Golf Tanger, although a five-star hotel, is in need of some repairs, especially in the rooms, like hanging down curtains or leaky showers. Plus the service leaves much to be desired. The best thing is the golf course and the seating area next to the pool and spa. The hotel is relatively isolated from the bustle of the city so it is ideal for playing golf and relaxing.
You couldn't find a better location: a 5 minute walk from the Medina and a 5 min. taxi from the post. The rooms are spacious and very clean and offer view of the sea. We didn't take a dip in the pool, but it looks great for summer. The reception staff speak English and Spanish and are quite friendly.
A pension in the middle of one of the most beautiful medinas in all of the the Maghreb, situated in the Rif mountain area, frequented by tourists who come to admire the beauty of streets with bright colors in which the walls of the houses walls painted blue.
Riad Tanja is located in the Tangier medina and is a great place to stay or even just eat. It's tucked away on Rue du Portugal in the old media and is worth visiting for the decor alone (carpets, fountains, terraces and Moorish courtyards). The dining room is decorated in bright red and the riad has a lovely terrace with great views of the medina and the Strait of Gibraltar. The rooms are all on the upper floor and are luxuriously decorated with traditional paintings and carvings from the Tangier area. The rooms are between 75 and 100 euros per night.
What's a hotel without the people who run it? Nothing - however beautiful it might be, it's like an empty vessel missing its soul. In the case of Dar Tarrae, a small hotel hidden away in the magical medina of Chefchaouen, its owners, Bilal and Cosimo, made me want to stay there forever. The rooms are great and all overlook a tiled courtyard. I walked a lot around the medina and took pictures, but I always came back. In the evening, Bilal lit a fire for me and he, myself, some Moroccans and other travelers all spoke in a mishmash of languages, a kind of impromptu Esperanto. At night Cosimo - Italian to the core, but settled in Morocco - took over. He offered a chickpea soup and some homemade spaghetti with garlic and tomato sauce, all washed down with a glass of Chianti. He brought dinner to my room on a tray, while I sat on the carpet in front of the fireplace. I stood there, watching the fire and listening to the thunder rumbling in the distance. I'd love to go back!
Many years ago I didn´t visit Asilah and until now we had always stayed in some house in the Medina. It was incredible to find this clean, cozy, decorated hotel where they attend you with care and empathy.
Located in the heart of the Medina Riad, it is ideal for a stopover in Morocco. The rooms are very clean, bright, and tastefully decorated, and it has a terrace from which you can see part of the city. This Riad run by Sue and Said transmits tranquility; on the ground floor it has a spacious lounge with a small library of interesting books on Morocco. The sunrise at the Riad was most uncommon as I awoke to the crowing of a rooster and Sue surprised us with a delicious Moroccan breakfast that you could repeat a thousand times over. It was memorable for all of this besides the fact that breakfast was on the terrace overlooking the City with the structure of the mosque as a skyline. The Riad Dar Nakhla Naciria has wifi, free of course and It is managed by two people who are very helpful. In short, a highly recommendable place to enjoy the magic of downtown Tangier because of all of these features.
During the bridge week in 2012 we stayed at Casa La Palma, located in the medina of Chefchaouen. It is a small boutique hotel, with spotless rooms that are beautifully decorated and have great showers. The freshly prepared breakfasts are great, and the best owners, Carlos and Ana welcome you like you're a part of their family and they make you feel at home. Highly recommend.
