“Great location, friendly staff & Nice room”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We stayed at Dar Jameel for a night.

The location was great. It's walking distance from the port but inside the medina.

The breakfast was served on the top floor and quite nice.

The staff were friendly enough.... The room was clean and quite spacious.

The only drawback was that the toilet / shower was not in the room - they were private but we had to go outside our room for toilet / shower which was kind of weird.

My husband and I stayed here in January--it was our first time in Morocco. We took the ferry over from Spain and stayed two nights before renting a car for 10 more days in Morocco. The Riad is very beautiful, with lots of original tile and woodwork; the beds were the most comfortable we slept in on the whole trip. The breakfasts were great each morning, and the view from the top floor where breakfast is served is really pleasant. Breakfast included fruit, fresh cheese, olives, yogurt (packaged) and several kinds of fresh breads, plus they will cook eggs to order.

The location is good, and once you orient yourself, it is actually very easy to find/retrace your steps. It is convenient to the main shopping streets, very easy to walk out of the medina either on the coast side (to get a cab or park) or on the side that leads to the new city (which has some good cafés/restaurants, ATM, taxis). The coast side is very close and we had our cab drop us off there, and then it was a short walk to the Riad. Have someone meet you from the Riad or you will likely have to pay a guide, since maps are so hit or miss. BUT, it is VERY close to the road, so if you must pay a guide--be firm and don't pay more than a few dollars.

Staff are very laidback; they will make restaurant recommendations and give directions when asked, but they weren't as chatty as everyone else we met during the rest of our trip--so in retrospect they seem reserved. The man at the front desk was a little reluctant to give us tips on handling the "guides", but I think because he didn't want to embarrass us by confirming that we had been ripped off by the guide that brought us to the Riad. He made a good restaurant recommendation and was really pleasant at breakfast every morning.

We had a wonderful one night visit at Dar Jameel. The staff were SOOO helpful - they helped us connect with our driver who was lost (he literally drove us and our luggage to meet our driver)!! The included breakfast was perfect. Overall, a great place to stay! Also, relatively easy to find.

What Dar Jameel has going for it is a good location within Tangier's medina -- just a half block from the Continental Hotel (a landmark reachable by taxi drivers.) The ornamentation of the lobby and rooms is also striking. And the rooftop dining room and breakfast satisfied. All of which makes Dar Jameel a good deal for the money. On the negative side, our room offered barely enough room to maneuver, and the (allegedly private) bathroom was through the lobby and down a hall. Not a bad choice, but beware of the limitations.

Dear guest, thank you for comments about Dar Jameel; we value all of our guests opinions and hope we can improve wherever possible.

We have a range of rooms and suites available in Dar Jameel and presumed that you knowingly chose the cheapest option available.

We apologise if you found your room smaller than anticipated and the location of the private bathroom a little inconvenient. The Marhaba room, our most economically priced room, remains one of our most popular choices among budget travellers. We often receive comments from guests who stay in Marhaba room about their surprise at the luxuriousness of bathroom and bath-robes provided and the relative price of the room.

We are certain that you will not be able to find anywhere in Tangier of an equal standard for the same price.

That's the rist when you arrange a weekend at the end of February, rain in Tanger. The first time, I know the city very well and it is always nice weather. We stayed in Dar Jameel as I saw in Tripadvisor that overall rating was very good. A really nice placve to stay, staff are helpful and friendly. Beautiful mosaics in the ground-floor area. Probably due to the rain there was a constant smell in our room of humidity and even our clothes, after a weekend, had that smell. Breakfast was very good and complete. We had the possibility to make coffee or tea in our room but after 1 day there were no tea bags anymore, we asked for some more but impossible? The coffee bags in our room were only deaf, no normal ones. Asking for a hair dryer remained also without result.

Overall a really nice place to stay, well situated within the medina. A dar is a town house build around a central open-roof (sheltered nowadays), ground-floor area but with no or not a lot of opening towards the outside. I only stayed in houses like this during my stay in Morocco and this one was definetely the most comfortable (and expensive) one I was in. The lower floors have really conserved their traditional aspect. The top floors lack a bit of charm but are more open onto the outside, especially thanks to a lovely rooftop terrace.

Room Tip: Lower floors traditional but no windows. Upper floors will have more light.

This hotel has it all! Right from when you enter the front doors you feel the nice atmosphere. Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms and interior decor is stunning. Wonderful mosaics and it really feels like a boutique hotel but at a great price. We paid 30 EUR for a night. Located on the sea side of the Medina. Take note - ensure you know your way before entering the medina, do not be led by any locals or they will take you anyway they like and expect a tip!!

Would stay here again anytime we are in Tangier!
