La Tangerina, Riad “Guest House” in Tangier
Owners took three years to accomplish this meticulously crafted conversion, done with materials salvaged from other period buildings, and create Tangier’s newest kasbah guest house ‘Riad’. The roof terrace, its absolute crowning glory, has indescribable views across the straits to Spain: what a place to chill out and watch the sun set after a pampering in the hammam. Owner, who is German, has very high standards and finishes are impeccable (the tadelakt in the bathrooms is luscious), yet he is the easiest, most affable company. That original oriental hammam is what prompted them to buy this particular house. Three of the bedrooms have that straits view, all are done in soft colors and a style that is more colonial than Moroccan, reminders of Tangier’s rich history, with an Arab, English or French… theme. They share a special love of breakfast so look forward to something special each morning.

After taking a guided mystery tour ever deeper and higher into the medina, you will be glad to find this best Riad in Tangier and Morocco, civilized and hospitable house at the end of it. Not only is it beautiful, it is unusual, perfectly positioned and serves memorable breakfasts. Pure Tangier white outside, the ‘house of light’ is utterly personal inside. Owner adopted Morocco decades ago, takes the famous Colonnes bookshop here and rubbed shoulders with the literary lights. His house exudes the energy of rich culture: books galore, a desk in every room, eye-catching pictures and sculpture, antiques and hangings against white walls, yet nothing overdone. Rooms are as vertical as the house with level changes, the odd duplex, a bed squeezed into a corner, those rather unforgiving pillows, two staircases, two restful windowless womb-like salons and two kitchens. Then you climb to the flowering terraces to contemplate the evening light over the panorama and dine on superb food. Everything here is seeking the light – you may join in.
