Amazing riad — a 5 star experience. The room was absolutely perfect and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms had all the toiletries and slippers to walk around. The owners and manager were extremely helpful and made sure I was comfortable and happy. Definitely returning and booking again

Fantastic central location . We were welcomed by the lovely French owner , who offered us the traditional mint tea whilst explaining to us how to navigate around the local area and provided us a map. She recommended restaurants and booked the Hammam for myself . We booked 2 rooms which were both incredibly spacious , and a fantastic rain shower. Breakfast was a real delight ! Fresh fruits , feta and warm breads . My daughter had a fresh omelette with hot chocolate . Can not recommend this place highly enough . Welcoming , clean and traditional . Looking forward to returning.

We were very happy with this lodging choice. The Dar is fully renovated and elegantly decorated. It reminds of a modern Andalusian style with a touch of French elegance. The whole dar was meticulously clean and the owners are very hospitable and kind people. The breakfast is extremely satisfying and tasty, particularly the Morrocan pancakes and the marmelades. The dar is strategically located minutes from the Medina center near the Kazba. We had a junior suite, which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We would definitely return to this dar, if we travelled back to Tangier!

My daughter and I enjoyed 4 wonderful days in Tangier and stayed at Dar Chams Tanjia. The staff were helpful and always on hand. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast on the roof terrace each morning before exploring amazing Tangier. There is so much to see and we recommend staying at Dar Chams for a relaxing experience.

If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Medina, this is the place for you. Turns out my husband doesn’t so need to have a different travel companion next time I head to an unsanitised resort! He finds the environment totally intimidating which it probably is to quite a few people. However the staff at this lovely place couldn’t be nicer and more welcoming. Sadly stranded here as no crossings back to Tarifa due to high winds. So heading to the Hilton followed by flight to Gibraltar.... so adventure continues!

This is a very nice riad. The rooms were very nice sand the breakfast is excellent. Location is within the Kasbah, not the easiest to reach by car. Short walk to the petit socco and a bit further to the grand socco. The place is not cheap, but would definitely stay again if in Tangier.

We found everything perfect in the very precise French way that Michelle ran the B&B. The welcome with tea and biscuits was charming, the room and common areas were beautifully decorated in the old Moroccan way and breakfast was full and perfectly cooked and served on the marvellous on the terrace overlooking the city. Madame had booked a walking tour of the old city and a day trip to Chefchaoun for us that added to our Moroccan experience. The prices are not cheap, but are thoroughly worth it. It was one of the high points in our 30 days in Spain and Morocco. You should stay at Dar Chams.

Charming Riad located in the Medina, within walking distance to souqs, restaurants etc.… you couldn’t ask for a better location! Vehicles are not able to drop you at the front door of the Riad and therefore park about a half a block away. It’s a bit of a steep descent from the car park to the Riad with many stairs. The taxi drivers will help carry your luggage however if you have mobility issues this may be a challenge. The owner emailed us prior to our trip offering to arrange taxi service for us which we took them up on. The driver was waiting for us at the airport. The Riad is beautiful inside with lots of mosaic tile and Moroccan charm. Michelle gave us a very warm welcome. She checked us in while we chatted and enjoyed mint tea and cookies. There is no elevator in the Riad however the staff were happy offer assistance. Our rooms were very comfortable and well appointed including toiletries, robes and slippers. Also WiFi and AC. In the morning we had a wonderful breakfast on the rooftop terrace with a view of the city. Fresh pastries, bread, yogurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee and eggs made to order...everything was fresh and delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the hospitality and it’s great location. We would highly recommend it!

The room is quite comfortable though the bathroom is not the greatest. Our room was right over the street and it was noisy until 2:00 a.m. which is not the greatest if you are a light sleeper. We had barely checked in when our hostess told us that our room had not been paid for. So we were a little concerned since we were just starting our ten day tour of Morocco. Any way the snafu did get sorted out but I must say it put a damper on how we viewed our hostess and hence I was not too enthused about this place. I am sure there are better places to stay in Tangier. At my most generous I would say that this place is a 3 star. The access is not very good. It's a downhill walk from the area where we were parked.

Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. You enjoyed your room, that's a positive thing. The access you find remote: the car park is 75 meters away........ Your choice of accommodation in the historic district of the city does not allow cars to enter in front of the door ! You have been able to check it in other cities....... In response to your payment problem: we never ask for payment before our customers leave. Your hostess didn't ask for anything before, completely ignoring your situation. If this issue had been raised when you arrived, as you say, you would not have waited until the time you left to deal with it. ... It was only when you left our establishment, and not before, that you presented the invoice, you stated that your agency had already paid. Which was false, and you yourself did not provide any proof... (voucher, or other attestation...) You had to call them: they confirmed that this payment was not being made. So they provided a means of payment at that time. It is unfortunate that you adapt your commentary to what suits you and not to relate the reality. To question our honesty, for no reason, is very unpleasant or even defamatory. You were able to verify that. Your attitude deserved this clarification from us.
