“If like flux stay here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

We were ushered to our room and found a swarm of 10-12 flats buzzing in the center of the room. The person showing us to the room acted as if he didn't notice handed us the key and walked out. We closed the windows and began killing flies which was a first for us. The room is very basic and the bed is not comfortable at all.

The bathroom is small and looks to have been poorly planned addition as there is a three foot gap between the ceiling and the top of the bathroom wall. Not much privacy there. The shower is just a showerhead attached to the bathroom wall above some wooden panel for you to stand on. We had not seen that since we were in Bolivia.

I looked through all the picture on trip advisor beige booking and thought the deal great. I was wrong and the pictures I saw were not of the room we were given.

Only stay here if you need a cheap bed before catching a ferry to Spain.

This hotel is housed in a nice old building which used to be a christian convent.
the nicest about it is the garden and the outdoor living room where you can have breakfast or sip a drink.
the staff is welcoming and nice.
Breakfast in the garden was really nice (European style)
They do have really nice rooms, for some reason we ended up getting one that was really basic on the ground floor, and was not like the pictures seen on the reservation site.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the room that is shown on the pictures try to book directly rather than through r...

Tangier was our first stop in our Moroccan trip after a total of 9-hour flight. We could spend more money for the hotel, but we needed one night stay before the train-ride to Fez. Since my husband had a knee issue, they gave us a room downstairs right next to the reception desk, although they prepared us a room upstairs. The room we got was not a good one. You can hear the conversation at the reception desk. The bed was all right, but toilet and shower in the same area was not my cup of tea. The breakfast they served next day was plentiful and great. There was only one person working in the kitchen and reception. He managed to get us a taxi and breakfast in time. He was very courteous and kind. The room we supposed to have might be better than one we got. I will not declare that we had a poor choice of a place.

as above nice people, really helpful and accommodating, comfortable albeit basic rooms and not too far a walk from the Medina as well as the beach. for backpackers, young people definitely recommended.

Nice place to be! Good situated in the city, quiet street. Near beach and medina. Breakfast in garden is lovely. Coffee is brilliant. Service is good and they are very helpfull. A small minus is the wet bathroom.

It wasn't so great.

First, the staff were excellent. Just very good. The location is also pretty good - about midway between the ferry port & the train station. It's a bit of a walk to each, but doable if you prefer that to taxi. If walking from the ferry port - just walk along the main avenue (Mohammed VI) from the port, but along the side away from the ocean. When you pass the Hotel Marco Polo - turn right. After a bit uphill, Pension Dar Omar is on the right. It's really a pretty clear shot from the port via that.

After that - the train station is all downhill, so easy again, to walk if you prefer.

Breakfast was pretty good - simple Moroccan style (several types of breads, dips for said breads, and fresh orange juice/coffee).

The room though - not so great. No heater...which I realize is not needed for 80% of the year, but in the 20% of the year it is - it sucks to not have one. Wifi was highly unreliable on our trip as well. Room itself - kinda looked old, and not in the best of shape. Shower was finicky, and the first in my life I've actually had trouble with avoiding the scalding hot/freezing cold options. The sweet spot seemed to shift over time too. It was weird. I spent most of the shower standing on the ledge to avoid the fire/ice.

I didn't travel in long enough in Morocco to be sure of the local standards exactly, but for the (online) price I paid - this seemed like a rip off: No heat, junky shower, almost no wifi, and not the best room. The only highlight was the staff. But, ugh, I feel like I highly overpaid.

Nice little hotel located midway between the port and the train station which was perfect for us, we walked to both. Staff were great and very helpful and eager to please. Good breakfast and they have a proper cafe style espresso machine! Room was a tad musty however was fine for 1 night.
