“Interesting design”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

The last night we spent in Tarifa was in the Casa Blanca having spent some time in related properties. The hotel has some interesting design solutions to a small space and an old building and does well in achieving a liveable space. Our room was at the front and after a day of celebrations the locals were out in force and the lack of double glazing was apparent. A group of Spain's finest young women decided to sit out the front at 4 am and conduct a high speed, high volume analysis of their night on the tiles- not conducive to sleep so had to turn on the portable air conditioner that generates noise equivalent to a small locomotive to drown them out. On a quiet night this room would be fine.

Room Tip: Avoid street fronting rooms if staying at a busy time

We stayed a few nights for our honeymoon, our room was really nice and very different which we liked, had a lovely feel to the place although our balcony was quite small we were in an ideal location to view the feria parade which was nice. Best things about the hotel is the decoration and location, very safe, modern and clean.

I stayed here for two nights and had mixed views on it. Firstly it is really a renovated house rather than a hotel. It is quite spartan inside and I didn't notice any lift so I had to haul my suitcases up two flights of the stone staircase. This wasn't a problem for me but may provide a challenge for some. There is no bar, restaurant or common areas except for a small area downstairs with a Nespresso type coffee machine which a size more appropriate for home use. Reception is only open until early afternoon.

The room was quite big but basic and the 'boutique effect' is cheap and somewhat cheerful so think about Ikea type lighting, bedding etc.

The 'hotel' is located right in the middle of the town which has pros and cons. The pro is that it is close to bars, restaurants, shops etc and the downside is that it is quite noisy until about 3am.

I think this property in general will suit a younger crowd.

Spent two nights in this hostal. Very nicely modernised from what was originally a very old structure. Situated right in the centre of things and yet just a few minutes from the main beach, commercial port and restaurants. Breakfast is not offered in any package, however within 50 metres there are several bars where you can find exactly what you want.

Our room No 3 on the first floor was not big, however everything you needed was in place. Only negative comment would be is that the shower, toilet and wash hand basin were located in the same T-shaped space. There were curtains to draw closing off the toilet and hand basin, so when showering, these facilities were not available to your partner without getting wet !. They offered coffee pods with milk to use in the machine downs stairs, but only on day 1 which we thought was a bit mean. Also the reception area was closed except for a few hours in the morning. However we were contacted by phone to explain that their sister hotel next door would deal with our check-in. Generally, a good place to explore the wonderful Tarifa

I went to Tarifa for a few days of kitesurfing. As it turned out the wind was wrong as so I used Casa Blanco as a base to do some other activities such as go to Morocco, go mountain biking and hiking. Casa Blanco is fantastic. Amazingly located in the centre of old town and perfect in every way. It is in an old building but stylishly modern and understated in its decor. Equal parts exotic and familiar, exactly what I had hoped for. When I return to a Tarifa I will stay here for sure.

I'm not used writing reviews online, but, after 5 years visiting and enjoying Tarifa, always staying in one of the three accomodations (more times at La casa de La Favorita, one time at Casa Blanco and last time at Misiana) managed by Mercedes Martìn, I have to say that we ALWAYS felt like at home! Every single detail is settled with so much consideration. In all accomodation the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the staff is such a great staff! Mercedes, Belén and the other guys are always at guest's disposal and ready to help and assist you with a smile offering any type of suggestions and tips ;-)
Their kindness is simply special and no one time we have had a single problem there, instead, always a great welcome! I cannot wait to get back there.

This hotel is simple and easy but with elegance and chic. You feel the great vibrations instantly, very easy to relax. The staff is helpful and genuinely happy to see you as their guest. The rooms are great and spacious with ambiance. The restaurant recommendation by the receptionist was perfect. The hotel is in the middle of Tarifa, can be noisy on weekend nights.
