Main door is locked day and night, you have to ring to get access. The rooms smell very strong like mold and and the water drops from the tabs down the wall. The area around is not the best, and doesnt look safe. (I wouldnt go out alone during night) Because of the smell you have to keep the windows... More

El muniria isn't the cheapest place in town. But it's worth the few extra dirhams! Staying at the famous room where junkie was written is a plus. you get your own set of keys of the front door so you can come in at any time! Hot water and a clean room is big plus. didn't have the problem about... More

A big and clean room for a reasonable price. Not far from the medina and the Tangier port that it is convenient to move next. (also walkable to the bus station - 20 minutes) Internet was on and off sometimes. What was worse was the noise from the bar next door. Could not sleep peacefully.

El Muniria far surpassed my expectations. It is affordable (Dh250/night), clean and in a convenient location once you find it. The alley way can be a bit dodgy at times, we had a guy follow us and start masturbating, however I'm sure its rare for this to happen! Rooms are cosy and the bed is Mega comfortable! Staff are friendly,... More

El Muniria delivers the experience you want. The hotel is basic, clean and very reasonably priced. We paid 250 MD per room per night (around £18). The hotel was chosen for the history and specifically the Burroughs (Naked Lunch) connection. We saw Room 9 where Burroughs lived for two year; although now well furnished, as it's one of the bedrooms... More

We chose El Muniria due to its 'beat generation' history, on the oposite side of the street was another hotel, which looks quite same quality but for less money. Muniria is clean, has big teracce on the roof, great ocean view. The street is not so nice after the sunset, during the night there were still some people sleeping on... More

We booked here because of the Beatnik connection (William Boroughs wrote 'The Naked Lunch' here) and because it was cheap (we paid 500 dirham for two nights in a twin room which is about £10 each per night). It's a bit tricky to find (off the corner by The Rembrandt hotel, go about 50m then turn right and go down... More

We had come from Marrakesh and planned to travel to Seville - we couldn't do it in one day so made an overnight stop in Tangier. We found this guesthouse through the Lonely Planet Morocco book. It has some "Beat Generation" history but nothing was pointed out to us or anything. Our room had a nice view of the water... More

This place definitely isn't a 5* luxury hotel, but when you're paying the equivalent of £15 for a double room you don't expect it to be! However, it is charming, individual and basic without being grotty. As well as having strong connections with the beat poets of the 50s/60s (William Burroughs lived here for several months and both Alan Ginsberg... More
