This traditional Moroccan guest house is situated in the heart of the Median. From the moment you enter, you know you have stepped into a special place. The house is tastefully decorated and each room has its own particular style. The hosts and owners are absolutely lovely; a very friendly couple willing to give you tips and make bookings for...

Dar Cham is an exquisite and romantic gem of a boutique hotel in Tangiers located within the Medina and steps to the Kasbah. My husband and I stayed here for one night on August 1st. It is meticulously refinished in Moroccan decor within recent years and exceedingly clean. Boasting subtle tile floors, Kilim rugs, lovely curtains and high quality linens... More

I was 8 months pregnant and loved the bed and pillows. I'm a heavy sleeper and noises don't bother me but my husband hates noises when he sleeps. There were kids outside our window occasionally screaming and yelling. I had no issues with this but some people may not enjoy the sound of yelling children. The Hotel itself is clean... More

All I can say is, our stay was too short, our hosts were gracious and attentive, the location superb, the breakfast beyond compare, the room clean/quiet/cool/fab bathroom, and I must get back there now that I have found it. 100% rating. OH and ask Michelle and Dominik for restaurant advise. Spot on.

We selected this hotel because of the reviews, which were 100% correct! Michelle and Dominik could not have been more welcoming and attentive. You are welcomed into their home. Every surface, every space, has been carefully thought about. They collect art from the region and it adorns the rooms and common areas. They offer to make dinner - I wish... More

Dar Chams is an amazing restoration of a perfectly located maison on the hills in the Kasbah. Your hosts have chosen quality finishes in their restoration, from the floors, to the fixtures, to the furniture. Beautiful woods, tiles and modern baths. They take pride in offering every comfort you may need. Robes, slippers, soaps, reliable internet on every part of... More

Well located and even fairly easy to find in the heart of the medina and kasbah (the hills help), beautiful riad with lovely rooms (go for the big ones higher up) and outstanding hospitality and service (including actual servicing of the rooms that was world class!) Good value too. Recommended.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Dar Chams Tanja! Michele and Dominique do everything possible to make their guests comfortable. The hotel (really more of a high-end bed and breakfast) is beautiful and perfectly maintained. The maid service is polite and meticulous, the breakfast is outstanding. They even have a door-man 24 hours who looks... More

We visited Africa, Morocco for the first time of our life this April 2014. We took the ferry from Tarifa, Spain and arrived on foot in Tangiers. We were very excited and also a little afraid. Our wonderful host & hostess at the Dar Chams made us feel great and safe. The views from their patio at the top of... More
