Dar Albarnous is not a classic hotel, is a private home that offers to its guests a personalized service where the elegance of a traditional Moroccan house (zellige of Fez floors, tadellakt walls) lives in harmony with the Italian design and the careful choice of furnishings. Located in the heart of Tangier's Kasbah, within a stone's throw from the Marabout Ben Ajiba (portrayed by Henri Matisse), Dar Albarnous is the ideal starting point to discover the beauties of "Tingis", as the Romans called it. From its panoramic terraces you can enjoy a privileged view of the city and its wide bay, to encompass the Straits of Gibraltar and the coast of southern Spain. This charming riad has five bedrooms: three double rooms, one room with two single beds and one suite, all comfortable, tastefully decorated, with private bathroom, and provided with air conditioning, heating and safety box. In addition to the terraces, two large common rooms and a gorgeous Moroccan Hammam beldi - with the possibility of scrub au "savon noir" and massages with essential oils made ​​from Argan - will be at your disposal to make your stay even more relaxing.

We stayed at Albarnous Madison d’Hotes for a couple of nights in Tangier. We had added the stop in to our plans in order to be able to make a quick day trip to Chefchaouen before we left Morocco. We corresponded with the hotel beforehand to book a taxi service for the full day that we would be there, and checked in once or twice beforehand to make sure that the taxi service was all set (knowing that we wouldn’t have too much time to figure this out when we got there). When we got to the hotel the night of our check in, the staff member on duty didn’t have a clue about the taxi booking for the next day but assured us that the taxi would be available the next day if we had already talked with the hotel beforehand. Of course, the next morning, the staff member on duty changed and he basically told us that there was no booking on file and that we should have let the guy last night know if we wanted to book a taxi and he could have taken care of it... We had him call us a taxi anyway that day to make the trip because we didn’t want to waste any more time, and not only did this cause delays (we didn’t leave until after noon), they also quoted higher than we had agreed to beforehand because only a “premium” car was available. Maybe this was truly the case, but I suspect not. We went with it because we didn’t have time to go figure out a taxi service on our own after all the miscommunication, but really things could have been handled much better. We ended up with a precious few hours in Chefchaouen that day, so not the trip we were hoping for. The rooms themselves were nice enough, and the rooftop was nice (though not set up to be used in this season). The bathroom in our room was perpetually damp smelling though. Also, in retrospect we may have liked a different neighborhood better - the area was much quieter than we would like at night and there were not many food options for dinner around there.

clean, cozy, modern and Italian stylish hotel which takes around 10mins to Medina, and just next to the kasbah, the location is convenient and the rooftop terrace is lovely with great view. We were greeted by a friendly boss, we enjoyed a tasty breakfasts on the ground floor before starting our half day tour to the Cave and Cap Spartel (DH700 which arranged by the little boss). Recommend to everyone who looking for a little cozy place like a 2nd home.

We stopped over this hotel in Tangier to have afternoon tea. This hotel has a unique style and had a chance to experience Moroccan hospitality.Very welcoming staff and attentive. The porter took us around the building to show us the facilities. Definitely one of a kind.

Incredible view from the terrace, the highest of all the Kasbah. Enjoying an excellent breakfast with Tanger view it´s the best way to start the day. Relaxing on the sofa to read a book or have a chat was such a bless after a day around Tanger. I would definitely reccomand, very nice staff both at the reception and cleaners.
