Located in Medina of Tangier, this hotel is within a 10-minute walk of Petit Socco and Place de la Kasbah. Old American Legation Museum and American Legation are also within 5 minutes.
Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything
It May Be Cheap...But Are You Really Saving?Pros: It was cheap and didn't cause too much damage to pack up for another hotel. Staff was nice and helpful. WiFi worked great (granted the modem was right outside our door.) Interesting location...right in the center of Medina which can be seen as a good and bad thing. Cons: Where to start. I may be a bit of a germaphobe, but this place was pretty nasty. It had the floor that you have in your elementary school cafeteria which didn't look like it had been cleaned in about a year. I seriously couldn't walk around barefoot. The bathroom was full of black mold and the shower didn't work. There was a big spigot that we had to try and use as a shower. And by the way, the sink was literally falling off of the wall, and it may have The blankets look like the ones that you buy on the side of the road that hang on fences, and the fact there was no AC killed it. We had to keep the windows open keep some cool air flowing which ended up inviting all the mosquitoes in for a bite fest. That led to waking up and holding the contest of who got bitten the most.
We came during Ramadan which meant that day long fasts led to evenings where everyone was out and ate all night. You could hear people bustling until 5 in the morning, so if you're a light sleeper, like me, don't expect relaxing nights. Every time you get in and out of the hotel you have street hecklers begging for money or trying to sell you sometime, so it was the least relaxing place I've been to. We did meet some really nice people there that told us to stay inside after about 7:30 just because of the people that come out at night.
I also got caught in a crowd there as we were walking back home and when it got to be a tight group I felt someone's hand reach in my pocket that I had my wallet in. I had to grab his wrist and yell at him in order for him to scram but just a little info on the nature of the area this hotel is in and what to expect. It wasn't relaxing but it was an adventure. We ended up moving to the Hilton and had a fantastic experience there.
Go to the ContinentalPros: The location is very good.Cons: It is nothing more than hostel quality, but treats itself like a fancy hotel. The staff was unhappy to help, whenever i needed help. Except for the 2 Mohammeds.
OkayPros: The bathroom was newly renevated, maybe. It was small, but it was clean.Cons: It was a small cheap place. Not for long stays.
