Hotel Name: Hotel Biarritz
Address: 102-104 AV Mohammed 6, Tangier, Morocco
I spent the night in Tangier, which not many visitors seem to do. There was definitely a distinct lack of tourism here. Most visitors to Morocco skip Tangier and head to the train station for the Marrakech Express.
[City of Tangier]
Tangier certainly has a reputation that precedes itself so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I knew the touts at the port gates were legendary so I was braced for an onslaught when I stepped off the ferry.
I was surprised then that I wasn’t hassled once. I was staying in a pension about 15 minutes walk away and I only got one taxi offer in that whole time. It seems the city has cleaned up the tout situation.
I stayed at a Pension called the Hotel Biarritz. A room with a bathroom costs 150 Dirham (about $18 US). I walked in off the street but you can also book it online.
I love these old places with the tiling and decor that looks like it hasn’t changed since the 40’s.
Book the Hotel Biarritz online or search for more hotels in Tangier.
