The Continental Hotel is stunning, even if is evident it has seen better days. It has the feel of a museum in certain areas, everything from the reception to rooms reeks of faded glory. As an example my room had a huge hardwood wardrobe/cupboard, something that what cost a few thousand pounds in the U.K, yet it is missing a couple of handles and one of the door's did not close quite right. This did not detract at all from the experience, if anything it added to the air of refined decay you find throughout. The entire hotel is immaculately clean while the staff are professional and courteous. If you are travelling to Tangiers I would recommend this hotel, it has bountiful charm and character and is well worth staying in for a night at least.
Saying that the windows are not insulated at all and there is currently allot of building work going on in front of the hotel, expect to be woken by calls to prayer early in the morning and the pounding pneumatic drills and diggers for the foreseeable future. The "guides," who linger around the gate to the Hotel are also a nuisance, if you most get one agree a price before hand and do not pay more than 5 euro's though the Medina itself is small enough not to need one. I would not recommend getting one of these guides as you will be led to all of their friends shops rather than the sights you wish to see, they are more trouble than they are worth.
All in all if you are passing through Tangiers this is the place to stay.
