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!
