Great hotel in center of medina..!!
Posted Aug 30, 2014
Taxi met me at the airport as arranged by hotel, which was convenient. The hotel charge for the taxi is 13.50 Euros (one way), but dealing directly with a taxi driver at the airport will get you to the medina for about 5 Euros or even less. Pick up a map of Tangier w/medina at the airport information counter and you'll be able to find the hotel in the maze after the taxi drops you off. The hotel entrance is marked merely by a wooden door in the wall and a small sign. Knock hard on the door, as there is rarely an attendant standing by. Once inside, be prepared for a wonderful hotel experience; three floors and only seven rooms. My room had a detached bathroom, but it was not shared. No aircon, but the fan was enough to stay cool. Breakfast on the terrace was OK, tasty and filling, but nothing to jump up and down about. Breakfast supposedly begins at 8:30 am, but don't expect to find anyone around at that hour. I met the French owner, a very nice and warm man. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience life in the very heart of a North African medina, and if you don't look and act like a tourist, you won't be hassled on the street. The hotel will arrange transport to the airport for the same 13.50 Euros, but walk out of the medina and you'll find a much cheaper taxi on your own.
