“the best place to be in Tanger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Dar Jameel is the best place to be in Tanger. Not only because of the location (near the Medina and with a superb view from the terrace) or because of the building itself (wonderful decorated) but most of all because of the staff: very friendly and very committed . We really felt at home and we will most certain stay here on our next visit to Tanger.

Stayed here on first night in morocco. Firstly staff were excellent in assisting to make their guests feel welcome. Also booked reputable taxis when requested and we felt comfortable on seeking their assistance. Breakfast was very good also. Room we had was clean spacious and quiet. Hard to fault this riad.

We stayed at Dar Jameel for one night as we were transitioning from Spain to Morocco. After getting off the ferry, we followed the directions given by the hotel to walk to the accommodation. It was pretty straightforward, once we realized where the port ended and the rest of the city began!

Overall, this was a great introduction to Morocco and the guesthouse was a calm and inviting space after the walk up from the port. Obviously, a lot of work was put into this guesthouse—the tile was just beautiful.

The room we stayed in was Leila. It had a double bed, a small sitting area, a nice sized bathroom, and a terrific view of the port. At first I was a little concerned because when I sat on the bed it was extremely hard; it felt like I was sitting on a sandbag. Not having positive hopes for a good nice sleep, I went to bed and woke up fully rested.

Breakfast was good—especially the crepes. I would definitely recommend this place to others; we thoroughly enjoyed our 24 hours in Tangiers.

My wife and I stayed at Dar Jameel the nights of 8 and 9 June. We were checked in Suite Leila which was very small but the manager was very kind to offer us Suite Malahat which was substantially larger and which we gladly took as we had travelled all the way from Thailand with 2 large suitcases. In our 2 week stay in Morocco, Dar Jameel probably offered the best breakfast with very nice local pancake freshly made. There are great views of Tangier from the rooftop. All in all a nice place which was recommended to us by La Tangerina who unfortunately was full for these dates. One slight drawback is that wi fi did not work well in certain areas of the Riad.

Five of us stayed here in Tangier on our way to Chefchouen and it was amazing! The hotel's many tile mosaics in every room make you feel as if you're in a palace. The place was very secure and the breakfast was great. The view from the top is fantastic- go see it as soon as you get there and visit throughout the different times of day. This hotel is a great "break" from the very busy city aspect of Tangiers.

My husband and I stayed in Tangier for one night on our way to Fes. While we found the city to be seedy, filled with aggressive hustlers and nothing to rave about, Dar Jameel was just lovely. The owner of the riad was very kind and hospitable. He greeted us with mint tea, went over the layout of the town with us and recommended places to eat, see and areas to avoid. It's authentic, yet beautifully kept up and at magic hour the most perfect light comes in through the skylight overhead. It was clean, very comfortable and easy to find/get to. The breakfast was our fave in all of Morocco! We debated staying at La Tangerina which also has many positive reviews, but unfortunately it was too expensive for just one night in a city that we are just passing through. I could not imagine a better value than Dar Jameel!!!! Highly recommend staying here. It also has free wifi and worked perfectly!

Dar Jameel is a fantastic find in Tangier. It is right in the medina so a great location yet...once you enter the building, it is very peaceful and tranquil. The inside is beautiful, sa are the rooms---you definitely feel like you have arrived in Morocco. The staff are wonderful---friendly and helpful. The young gentleman working when I checked out even walked me to the port, helping me with my things! Be sure to take advantage of the enclosed rooftop terrace----great veiws and perfect to watch the sunset. Breakfast is included in the price and is yummy---especially the Moroccan bread. I only stayed one night but would definitley return to Tangier just to sty at Dar Jameel for some rest and relaxation!
