A Hidden Morocco Gem: La Maison Blanche

Located in the Kasbah, or old town, in the port city of Tangier lies a hidden gem of a hotel (riad) named La Maison Blanche. The recently renovated riad (the name for a more upscale hotel in Morocco) is one that I hold dear to my heart because the owners are uber-inspirational, super-kind and really great people.

The beautiful fountain in the main lobby of the hotel – the rose petals smelled absolutely heavenly.

The owners of the hotel (a sweet, lovely couple) hired local artisans to hand-place each and every single tile throughout the riad. It’s charming, quaint and culturally beautiful.

My room on the 3rd floor of the riad was crisp, comfortable and clean.

But the view – this view from their communal rooftop – is absolutely breathtaking.

And the best part is the breakfast that they serve here. It was my first breakfast in Morocco, and I will never forget how my jaw dropped when they brought it out.

Fresh local fruits, pastries and Moroccan bread + crepes.

If you’re planning a trip to Morocco (especially if you live in Europe) – I’d recommend coming in through Tangier, and staying a night at La Maison Blanche.  The owners are really kind people (Aziz actually personally took me on a tour of the medina), and it’s gotten damn near 5 stars on Trip Advisor. You can read all of the reviews here.
