Excellent value friendly guesthouse - Jan 24, 2020
I took the Bergache room (see my photos) on the ground floor and the staff brought my breakfast tray to my room on the ground floor as I could not climb up 3 flights to the terrace! Excellent abundant breakfast with homemade jams. Comfortable bed. Delightful manager Abed was kind and helpful, as was Zack. English owned. My room was rather dark due to a broken bulb? Chilly in winter but there was an efficient heater and constant hot water. Excellent shower. Stayed 1 week. Highly recommended. Hard to find! Abed helped me with my luggage.chidambar, Owner at Dar Jameel, responded to this review Dear Jillian, thank you for your kind comments about Dar Jameel. We are very happy that you enjoyed your week with us and felt well looked after by Abed and Zakaria. Please accept our apologies about the broken bulb. We often orient people arriving for the first time to first find the Hotel Continental overlooking Tanger Ville port. We are a few meters away from the hotel entrance. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Tangier. « less

Beautiful environment, late breakfast - Oct 6, 2019
We loved the beauty of Dar Jameel. It's located through a door in a small alley in the midst of the medina. Once inside, you are surrounded by beautiful tilework and lovely rooms. We stayed for one night in August, and although the weather was warm, the small A/C unit in the room kept us comfortable. Note that it did drip some water, so we were happy we hadn't put any clothing right underneath it.Breakfast was served a little later than most places we've stayed, about 8:30 AM; since we had an early tour scheduled, we only had time to quickly grab something. Just be aware of the timing so you can plan your day accordingly.The location in the midst of the medina was nice, letting us take some time to explore the nearby streets,« less

Avoid ground floor rooms at all costs - Oct 2, 2019
Tiny rooms with no outside windows creating a really stuffy atmosphere. To get any air one can open a window onto the lobby area of the Riad but then noise can be an issue and I would not have felt safe leaving window open all night. No air con although a fan provided. On the plus side rooms on the second/third floor are brilliant so as with everything in life you get what you pay for. Breakfast served on the top floor was decent enough and the very best thing about the Riad was Abed on reception. Communicated with him prior to arrival about getting there from the bus station and he sent a taxi to meet us. Also offered us a room move for our last night as they had availability. Top top man!!!« less

Cozy and comfortable Riad in Tangier - Sep 23, 2019
I would 10/10 highly recommend Dar Jameel to anyone traveling to Tangier. The hotel was lovely, only 8 or so rooms, so you get to know the property intimately. When I arrived, the hotel had arranged a taxi to pick me up from the hotel and transported me to the hotel. The entrance is in the heart of the Medina (old, walled part of the city) and it located in a tunneled archway. When I was there, there was sewer/construction work outside, so I didn't get to adequately appreciate the entrance, but those anxieties were calmed when I opened the door (after knocking and being let in by the front desk). The atrium is stunning, with an interior courtyard opening up to the outside. The tile work on the interior was marvelous, and the staff were friendly. Everyone spoke impeccable English and were very hospitable. Since I was going to depart the next morning before breakfast service, the front desk offered me breakfast when I arrived, and it was phenomenal. Fresh squeezed orange juice, mint tea (must have), and an assortment of breads and cheeses with toppings (go for flat bread toast with goat cheese and honey). When I checked into my room after my all day tour, I was flabbergasted at how beautiful it was. I would most definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the beautiful city of Tangier.chidambar, Owner at Dar Jameel, responded to this review Dear guest, thank you for your kind comments. We are so glad that you had rewarding experience in Dar Jameel and enjoyed both the beautiful house (=Dar Jameel in Arabic) and our hospitality. We all enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you another time should you pass through Tangier again. Happy travels! « less
