The owners of this guest house have created a true gem in the middle of the Medina, just steps away from the Kasbah. The entire building is impeccably decorated & furnished with tasteful artwork, high quality furnishings and beautiful personal touches throughout, including freshly cut flowers, mint tea upon check-in, bottled water in the guest rooms, bathrobes in the bathrooms,...

Merci Michelle for the ambience you created with us. Your beautiful Dar gave us a fairytale feeling. Your nice wine at the roof terrace in the sun ( end of November ) was great. The breakfast delicious. The rooms fantastic. Merci!!!!!!!

WE stayed here for four nights in October. The owner Dominic was most helpful and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The room on the second floor was one of the best rooms and was very comfortable. Breakfast was on the roof terrace with wonderful views over Tangier. They don't serve meals apart...

Dominic, the owner, greeted us with hot mint tea, not too sweet and baked butter cookies. This riad is different from the others because it has a homey quality, and yet it is large and beautiful. The rooftop has a view of the water (Gibraltar in the background) and the church that Matisse painted while he was here. Houses and...

We stayed here in late October-the first of three riads we enjoyed while in Morocco. The Riad is beautiful and well maintained. It is also well located, near the Kasbah and a wonderful lookout onto the water. The view from the rooftop terrace was lovely. The breakfast on that terrace was comprehensive and good. Unfortunately, the hot water in the...

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Dar Chams Tanja. This is truly an oasis in the sometimes chaotic though fun Medina area. Dominic, the proprietor, is incredible helpful. The room was very comfortable, the common atrium area amazing, and the roof-fop terrace breakfast was delicious.. You can't go wrong here, and a very reasonable price. .

We only stayed here for one night but thoroughly enjoyed it. Although the staff spoke little English they were very accomodating and helpful. We were greeted and offered mint tea and biscuits. Our room was nice and the bathroom very clean and well appointed. The hotel is in a great location - just a few steps to the Medina. The...

I can say Dar Chams is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Service was fantastic, our room was very comfortable and clean. Towels were super clean and fresh every day.

Our trip to Tangier from Spain wasn't as smooth as we had expected. The ferry was delayed and we ended up at the wrong port outside the city. Needless to say we were running 3 hours behind and had a limited schedule in Tangie (less than 24 hours) When we finally arrived at the B&B, the owners (Michele and Dominic)...

Michele and Dominic were the most amazing hosts. They sent a taxi driver to the port (Achmed!) who had our name and hotel on a piece of paper so we knew he was our driver. He took wonderful care of us, made sure no one bothered us and got us right to the B&B. Achmed even pointed out places of...
