“Amazing bazaars”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Tangier has the best bazaars in the medina, out of the three others I've seen - Marrakech, Rabat and Casablanca. It seems they value visual effects and some of the ones I walked into were stunning. Prices are also reasonable and there isn't much bargaining in Tangier - I've even seen a few price-tags!

“Unfriendly welcome”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I would say this place is on the lower end of all Medinas in Morocco. Maybe it is our luck but we encountered the most unfriendly people here in our short Moroccan trip including Tangier - Chefchaouen - Tetouan.

For a real charming Medina, i would recommend Chefchaouen anytime over this filthy place.

“Great Oriental Experience”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

If you come to Tangier you have to walk through the Medina and get the oriental feeling. The countless small ways through the Medina. The goods offered are not that special and the price has to be bargained of course but this is the Orient. The sellers are a bit rough but they won't force you to buy something so stay strong and walk your way. Again I would recommend this experience once you are in Tangier.

“What a filthy place....”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Loads of people trying to sell you things you do not need. And guys who want to be your 'guide' on every corner.

Did we mention the garbage and filth in the streets?

For your first visit, use a guide (but ask the hotel what the going rate is - they all charge based on what you look like). One can get a feel for the layout of the Medina in a few hours.

Restaurants are so, so.

Tanger is not a city to spend much time. We were ther for 1.5 days and felt we had seen everything one would possibly want to visit.
