Our holiday apartment is in a NEWLY constructed building in the heart of Tangier, close to absolutely everything. It's located on the main boulevard (Mohamed V), right next to the Boulevard Pasteur.
It's bright and spacious with BREATHTAKING OCEAN VIEWS of the Port, the Marina, the Bay, the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, Spain and the Medina from EVERY ROOM!!
It's only a 8-10 minute walk away from the Medina and the port but is not as dirty, loud, and you won't be harassed by hawkers who target tourist. This is the absolute center and it totally has the real essence of Morocco.
Marble floors throughout!
A nice TERRACE to enjoy the views and feel the wonderful sea breeze!
The building has a little garden and we have a spot in the private garage (which is just an elevator ride away, 6 floors below). Very convenient supermarket, cafes, and restaurants onsite...
The KITCHEN is equipped with a stove, oven, 3-door refrigerator (bottom freezer), sink, juice maker, coffee maker, microwave and toaster. There are plenty of nice pots, pans, dishes and utensils.
It's totally safe to drink the water from the tap (but you might not like the taste).
The LIVING ROOM includes a flat panal big Satellite TV (Astra and Hotbird) with a Blue-ray DVD player and Hi-fi system.
And a nice leather couch and hard wood furniture.
There are 2 BEDROOMS:
1- The main bedroom has a bathroom en suite and a nice 6 m2 terrace. It's equipped with a queen-sized bed, with lots of closet and storage space.
2- The second bedroom accommodates 2 people. The bed is very interesting: it's very comfortable yet it's also expandable, making it both a single and a DOUBLE bed, 2 twin beds together. It has three large drawers incorporated into its frame.
All the mattresses are brand new and made of memory foam.
A 5th person can sleep in the couch. It's very, very confortable but it isn't a sofa-bed.
There are also 2 BATHROOMS:
1- The one en suite in the main bedroom has a full-size bathtub/shower, sink, toilet and bidet. The walls are made of black Atlas marble, while the floor is of white marble.
2- The second bathroom has a roomy glass-enclosed shower, a sink and a toilet of course, and white marble on the walls and floor.
The AIR CONDITIONING/ HEATER system is fully controllable and reaches every room.
The apartment has a washing machine, iron, ironing board and hair dryer.
A big PARKING space in the garage beneath the building is INCLUDED in the price. This is the very center of the city so if you bring a car, you will be needing it. :)
SMOKING is only allowed on the terrace outside, with the doors to the bedroom CLOSED. This way smokers are happy and non-smokers (like me) too. :) Our guests are totally respectful and It NEVER smells like smoke.

The area is very safe but there is also 24/7 security in the building and the parking.
There is an big supermarket (ACIMA) on floor -1 of the building, it is open every day of the week apart from a couple holidays. This is amazingly convenient. It's like having an extra refrigerator downstairs!!!
Getting AroundThe apartment is so centrally located that you will probably only take the taxi to/from the airport. You can walk almost everywhere (and if you get tires, blue taxis are very cheap).

Tangier's port is very close (10-20 minutes by foot, less than 2 minutes by car).
The train Station is 5 min nutes away by taxi.
We have a driver that will take you to Assilah, Chefchaouen, etc. for a better deal than taxis. Ask me in advance. Sometimes this service is not available.
Other Things to NoteCheck in/ check out: if no one is staying there before/ after you, it will be flexible. If we have other guests, the check in is at 3PM and the check out at 11PM. During this period of time, Rhimou will be preparing the apartment and guests CAN'T stay inside. However, you can toatlly leave your luggage inside while taking a nice walk. Just get in, grab the keys, leave your stuff and come back when the apartment is ready. :)
Very late or very early check in is permitted. But you'll have to tip Rhimou for the taxis and incoveniences. :)
We provide, if needed, laundry service, cleannig service and cooking service. All this has an extra charge and must be arranged in advance.
Tangier is also great for all kinds of water activities such as surfing, diving, fishing, sailing, etc. as well as horseback riding, camel riding :) , golf, etc.
