Where to Stay

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO | CITY SCENE -

Oc­cu­py­ing a stun­ning 14th-cen­tury Kas­bah town­house that has been in the same fam­ily for gen­er­a­tions, La Mai­son Blanche ( 212-539/370-336; lamaison­blanche tanger.com; dou­bles from US$128) opened in 2013 af­ter a six-year ren­o­va­tion with nine guest rooms. Stylish, so­phis­ti­cated, and per­fectly sit­u­ated, it is eas­ily among the city's best places to stay.

The eclec­tic Aux 3 Portes ( 212-539/931592; aux3­portes.com; dou­bles from US$160) of­fers just six rooms, each charm­ing and dis­tinct. Tucked away on the edge of the Kas­bah, the ho­tel has a gar­den, views over the sea, and a se­ries of com­mu­nal spa­ces crowded with an­tiques and in­ter­est­ing pieces of fur­ni­ture.

For ru­ral splen­dor, head to Villa Joséphine ( 212-539/334-535; vil­la­josephine-tanger .com; dou­bles from US$405) in the Old Moun­tain area just 10 min­utes from the Kas­bah. Once the home of Wal­ter Har­ris—leg­endary Times cor­re­spon­dent, con­fi­dant of sul­tans, and au­thor of Morocco That Was— it was con­verted into a lux­u­ri­ous 10-room bou­tique ho­tel with lush gar­dens, an invit­ing pool, and a charm­ing li­brary bar.
