We changed to another Riad super clean and healty. The owner of the Arous Chamel just said "Tanger in the winter is humid and... More

We arrived very early in the day, tired from an overnight train. Offered breakfast on the beautiful roof terrace and given access to an available room so we could shower and nap. Great welcome. The place is impressive and well-kept, although like most riads the shower leaves a bit to be desired. Being close to the outer edge of the... More

Nice clean room. When we arrived, workers were busy cleaning, we felt they took it seriosuly to keep the place clean and spotless. Hotel is very nicely decorated and nothing like the chain hotels. Wifi in lobby only. Staffs were very helpful.

We had a great night with Rachid...he was the on site manager. We had a BBQ on the roof top bar...we had such a good time we never left the hotel. It is a very safe and comfortable place...we never even locked our room...it felt like a Huge house. Loved it.

I luckily found this place because my taxi driver from the train station left me in the capable hands of a friend who knew where it was. The building is beautiful and my bathroom looked newly renovated. The mattress is very hard but I slept fine. My few issues were first, my bathroom was not in the room. While it... More

Right in the middle of the medina, where you can walk the streets and experience authentic Morrocan culture. You can listen to the prayer calling from the nearby mosques. You can have a delicious breakfast on the terraces roof. Had a lovely stay.

The Riad Arous Chamel was a wonderful experience. As this was our first trip to Morocco, the people at the Riad were extremely kind to set up transport from the Airport to the Medina and then get us someone to guide us through the little streets until we found ourselves in the Riad. Since there were few guests staying during... More

Love this quaint place. Beautiful exotic Moroccan decor just made it so inviting and pleasing to enter. Very clean. Breakfast is cooked by the owner's wife, which tastes great. Best thing is, breakfast is on the rooftop, overlooking the medina. Unforgettable memories staying here, although getting here can be a little tough - you may need to tip locals to... More

Yes- this is a hard place to find and you do need to be met outside the Medina ( we didn't arrange this and got very lost!) but it's well worth seeking out for an authentic Riad experience. Do not book in if you need a Western hotel experience. The breakfast on the roof terrace is authentic, the service friendly... More
