We were really impressed with how beautiful and relaxing this wonderful riad is! And Peter is an incredibly helpful, friendly host, always going out of his way to make us more comfortable, provide guidance, and give spot-on suggestions. This was the last place we stayed on our trip to Morocco and we would go back in a second. As we...

My partner and I visited Peter and his lovely Maison Arabesque for two nights this week. The Maison is located inside the busy and crowded medina, but Peter will meet you in the easy-to-find Grand Socco, and escort you to his place. Once you are inside this beautifully renovated and restored house, it is calm and peaceful, and quite spacious....

The owner was a really nice host, the great breakfast was...

My husband and I recently spent three nights at the charming Maison Arabesque, and it met all our expectations. Peter, the wonderful host, kept us well informed about all the necessary details well before our arrival in Tangier. He has transformed his riad into a lovely small hotel, paying great attention to detail and guest comfort. We stayed in the...

Maison Arabesque is a perfect place to stay a few days if you want to taste the local atmosphere of Tangiers and don’t mind the noise of the souk. It is in the center of the medina and as Peter will be very helpful to meet you when you arrive, and bring you to his place, you will be part...

Our stay with Peter at Maison Arabesque was easy and pleasurable in every respect. His beautifully restored dar or mini-riad is close to the edge of the medina for easy access, and yet far enough into the maze of souks and restaurants to be fascinating. He booked a tour guide for us for half-day, suggested restaurants, looked up the hours...

We had an amazing stay at this riad in the center of the medina.

I stayed three nights in Tangier with my 9 year old son. The Arabesque is in a perfect location, just inside the medina of Tangier. Close the the Grand Socco and the new parts of the city, and right in the heart of the medina. The house has beautiful common areas especially the amazing roof deck, where the host often...
