We stayed here for our honeymoon and the place was truly a gem. Dominique, our host, was incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome from the very start. He offered great suggestions on how to get around and places to eat. The staff were also very helpful and friendly, and had the upmost professionalism. We loved, LOVED, breakfast here. And... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel. Everything about it was first rate. A beautiful Riad that has been meticulously restored. Dominique, the owner, is an absolute gentleman and he went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and at home, which we really appreciated given it was our first visit to Morocco. He even walked us... More

We only had one night in Tangiers and wanted to stay in the 'heart of things'. Dar Chams Tanja is an absolute gem. Fabulously appointed, very comfortable and an absolute oasis. The hosts Michelle and Dominique were very friendly and welcoming and on hand to answer any questions - they recommended some places to eat (that were excellent). Rooms very... More

I had the opportunity to take a side trip after a recent business trip and had always wanted to go to Morocco. I found this hotel on line and booked based on the many positive reviews. I was not disappointed. Michelle and Dominique have done an excellent job of creating an oasis for travelers conveniently next to one of the... More

The owners of this guest house have created a true gem in the middle of the Medina, just steps away from the Kasbah. The entire building is impeccably decorated & furnished with tasteful artwork, high quality furnishings and beautiful personal touches throughout, including freshly cut flowers, mint tea upon check-in, bottled water in the guest rooms, bathrobes in the bathrooms,...

Merci Michelle for the ambience you created with us. Your beautiful Dar gave us a fairytale feeling. Your nice wine at the roof terrace in the sun ( end of November ) was great. The breakfast delicious. The rooms fantastic. Merci!!!!!!!

WE stayed here for four nights in October. The owner Dominic was most helpful and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The room on the second floor was one of the best rooms and was very comfortable. Breakfast was on the roof terrace with wonderful views over Tangier. They don't serve meals apart... More

Dominic, the owner, greeted us with hot mint tea, not too sweet and baked butter cookies. This riad is different from the others because it has a homey quality, and yet it is large and beautiful. The rooftop has a view of the water (Gibraltar in the background) and the church that Matisse painted while he was here. Houses and... More

We stayed here in late October-the first of three riads we enjoyed while in Morocco. The Riad is beautiful and well maintained. It is also well located, near the Kasbah and a wonderful lookout onto the water. The view from the rooftop terrace was lovely. The breakfast on that terrace was comprehensive and good. Unfortunately, the hot water in the... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Dar Chams Tanja. This is truly an oasis in the sometimes chaotic though fun Medina area. Dominic, the proprietor, is incredible helpful. The room was very comfortable, the common atrium area amazing, and the roof-fop terrace breakfast was delicious.. You can't go wrong here, and a very reasonable price. .
