I've stayed in Hotel Nabil many times en route to and from Spain, it's an old family-owned Spanish Hotel, and its location is far enough back from the busy Avenue Mohammed 6 beach road to exclude traffic noise, disturbing sleep.
The rooms are all ensuite, with shower, toilet and lots of hot water, a comfortable double bed and wall-mounted television, the best rooms are on the third floor facing the port, with private balconies, rooms 305/6/7 are best, the rooms facing the rear of the hotel are of the same quality, but window views are not so impressive, if that is a consideration. On previous year's stopovers I paid the off-season rate of Dh195, but this year the charge had been reduced to Dh150, a sad sign of the present downturn in Morocco's tourist trade, and the hotel was almost empty!
Hotel Nabil, in common with many other small Tangier hotels, does not work on Internet, it's just a matter of turning up and asking for a room without any reservation, I've never experienced any problem finding overnight accommodation here. In the unlikely event of full occupancy, there are three Pensions in the same street, Hotel Biarritz on the corner and Hotel El Muniria further up Rue Magellan.
Hotel Nabil is conveniently located, close to the port, Medina, beach, and a short but steep climb up Rue Magellan takes pedestrians to the main street in the new city, Avenue Pasteur.
The cheapest hotel in my first trip to Morocco, hardly justifying the four stars, it is, however, a comfortable hotel, a little far from the centre of town.
We couldn't get ice in our stay (accidental?)
I would recommend the Hotel Marco Polo, It is within walking distance of the port, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. It also has a bar.
It was refurbished last year to a very high standard but is very economical If I remember correctly we paid 250Dh (£16.50) per night for a double room with bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the ground floor where you can have breakfast. If you choose to stay there try to get a room that faces the sea as the back rooms overlook a litter strewn waste ground where temporary structures house the homeless.
Trains from Tangier to Fes take 5 hours and from Fes to Marrakech 7.5hours, Information, fares and timetable can be found here http://www.oncf.ma/Index_en.aspx
Very helpful and friendly staff, close to the medina
I had some friends stay here for 100 dirham a night per person. Accommodations were good for the price: comfortable rooms, hot showers, and only a SHORT distance from the beach. The man working the front desk was a bit of a troublemaker, but they were able to assuage the situation (it's quite a long story actually as to why they had trouble... but I wouldn't anticipate any problems)
When you arrive by boat you will be told that the campsite is too far to walk but it really is no more than fifteen minutes. Head into the centre and through the market stalls, veering right and up the slight hill. You will have to put up with the stench of filth and dead carcasses as you do so and do not be alarmed if you see animal parts in the street and blood running alonf the road, thats the way they operate over here. Head twards the palace and the campsite is nesstled right in behind, if your not sure ask one of the palace gaurds for directions.
the campsite has a beautiful view although it is surrounded by a huge fence to keep locals away from westerners.
If you are on a Beat Generation trip and can't get in to the Tangier Inn, check out the Ibn Batouta right next door. Clean hotel with plenty of character and charm. Not all rooms have private bathrooms. Centrally located
Excellent roof terrace with great views. Perfect to hang out, drink some mint tea and smoke.
The youth hostel in Tangier has clean beds but a nasty bathroom, which made me contemplate about some trivial things: is there a shower curtain under all that mildew, does trust justify no locks on an unisex bathroom, and so forth. I strongly advise flip-flops when taking a shower, and perhaps some rubber gloves as well. =P
Thankfully, the bedrooms were clean and brightly lit, boys and girls are kept separated. Rooms have 3 or more bunk beds.
Keep in mind that this was 2001, I don't know if things have changed since, let's hope so.
