Riad La Tangerina, Morocco

Contributor/ Glenn Ebert

Best Known For

One of Tangier’s most authentic and exquisite riads, the property serves as a chic, quiet launching pad to one of Morocco’s often overlooked destinations. Most importantly, and because of the attention to detail of its immaculate interiors and amenities, it often justifies guests never having to leave to have a true Moroccan experience.

The Good Stuff

Guests will immediately be escorted for a complimentary mint tea on the rooftop terrace, complete with stunning, panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the city centre from above. Breakfast on the terrace is included each morning, and staff is also on call to accommodate any spontaneous cocktail or culinary desires which may arise during your stay.

The Vibe

Intimate, cosy and romantic. The property aesthetic, services and staff perfectly balance the charms of a traditional Moroccan riad experience with modern touches, to make it a true urban oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the often chaotic streets outside.

Inside the Hotel – 10/10

No traditional Moroccan Riad is complete without a traditional, on-site hammam. While small, Tangerina’s in-house spa is an exquisite, essential must for any stay. Guest rooms are large yet cosy, with each room not the same and presenting a unique aesthetic and melange of Moroccan and French décor.

Outside the Hotel – 7/10

Located in the heart of Tangier’s famous Kasbah, major attractions and famed restaurants are within walking distance; including local souks and shops tucked away in the maze of streets of the old city. However, the property and its intimate amenities are the real sell here and make it worth the trip alone.
