What a great building with lots of character - located right across from the Souk - rooms and showers were great as was the AC - very humble but nice breakfast in the AM - staff were always willing to help - this Riad is perfect for those who want a real Moroccan experience - close to all the shopping...

We decided to splurge & treat ourselves to a slap-up meal in Tangier. Unfortunately, Riad Tanja was a big disappointment. The restaurant itself is very pleasant with a lovely view over the edge of the city & our waitress was very sweet. But the food was bland & service slow - fine if the price reflects this, however, our meal... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this spot on our last night in Tangier. Later that evening I said "why didn't you tell me about this place on my first night?!" (he told me because he wanted to 'send us home right' ... and that, he did). An escort walked us the few minutes from our hotel ... partly because it's just... More

My husband and I were staying closeby in Tangier and asked our (5 star)hotel concierge for a restaurant recommendation at 9 p.m. on a Saturday night. They suggested Riad Tanja. Because of its remote location in the kasbah, they sent a local to guide us there--we would have likely not found it otherwise, as it was quite a remote location... More

We spent one night here and would not go back. We arrived at about 7pm, the place was in total darkness. After about 10 minutes ringing the door bell, a teenage boy opened the front door in his track suit switched on some lights. Our room was big, but dingy. Not decorated for years, horrid bathroom. It's actually the one... More

This was a really lovely riad in a great location, right in the medina near the American Legation Museum. The room was huge and beautifully furnished, with a great view of the souk and a gorgeous bathroom. It was very clean, and there was plenty of room to have afternoon tea at the table in the room. The breakfast was... More

We stayed in the Minza Suite, which was the largest and most expensive room in the hotel. It was a beautiful room, but definitely overpriced. The breakfast only consisted of regional breads, and wasn't very good. It could have been made so much better with a little bit of effort. Visitor beware, they don't give you a key for the... More

All you could want in accommodation. The people are lovely and generously kind, the beds are cozy, the bath was refreshing and the restaurant was a must. I can't recommend it enough.

This is in a beautiful riad, though it felt slightly rundown. We stayed here for two nights, and also ate here for dinner once. Hotel: We were shown both the superior double and the regular double, though only the superior was available. The superior was much bigger, though also twice as much money, and I definitely don’t think it’s worth... More

Riad Tanja is a wonderful place to stay! The staff was amazing and so helpful, not only in making us feel at home immediately after arriving late at night, but also going above and beyond to help us make it to the train station upon leaving. Our room was enormous and very comfortable, with a great private bathroom and plenty... More
