Hotel continental is not to be confused with hotel intercontinental.
This hotel is run by locals and is thus of different experience.
Tangier was our first stop in morocco and we were only there for one day (we left for chefchaouen the next day).
It is a good location if you are there just for a day. It is at the edge if the medina,therefore easy access by taxi if you arrive by taxi. Easy walk to medina,about 3 minutes, and about 15minutes to the big roundabout. But there isn't much in tangier from what we saw.
Western toilet and a shower. Shower was cold and the water was barely trickling. Im not sure if this is because we were staying on the top floor. Very unpleasant because we were there during winter. I would not stay there again.
Room is basic and clean.
The hotel is not handicap friendly. It has many stairs leading into the hotel lobby and many stairs leading up to the rooms. For people with knee problems, it may be challenging. However it seems stairs are unavoidable in morocco as far as my experience.
The hotel is not as nice as it looks in the pictures.
The main photograph of the front of the building is featured on the website. The front of the hotel indeed photographs well, but the foyer view is less than impressive as it looks out onto a harbor under construction.
The other pictures that show traditionally Moroccan interior is actually only photographing the old preserved part of the hotel, which you can see on the way to the area you eat breakfast ( you eat breakfast on a foyer which is unimpressive). This is a very small part of the hotel and you do not stay in that part of the hotel.
Service was okay. The hotel manager speaks good English. However there is only be manager to man the desk, and he is thus very busy tending to all the hotel guests. He gave us the wrong information to take the ctm bus to chefchaouen. Please be advised that if you are taking a ctm bus, you do not go to the main bus stop. Rather you go to the ctm ticket office which is also where the bus leaves from. It is best if you tell the taxi driver ctm bus. It takes about 10minutes to get there by taxi from the hotel.
