I cannot speak highly enough about Dar 23, Peter, and Mohamed — who not only provided a wonderful welcome, but did everything they could to help me when my bank In the U.S. froze ATM access to my account. Dar 23 is beautiful and peaceful, where you'll hear few sounds other than the occasional bird and the Muslim call to prayer. My room was more comfortable than I could have imagined (far, far better than most hotel beds) Peter is a well-traveled and very interesting man, whose advice is trustworthy and more than helpful. Talking with him over a delicious breakfast was an unexpected reward of my stay. Mohamed met me at the ferry, and walked with me to Dar 23. He helped me get a Moroccan SIM card for my phone, helped me with a cab to the train station to buy the ticket for the next leg of my trip, took me to a reasonably priced place for dinner, and translated for me when needed. He speaks little English, and I speak little French. Still we could communicate. My highest recommendation to Tangier-bound travelers is that they stay at the charming Dar 23. I will have wonderful memories thanks to Peter and Mohamed.
