Very pretty guest room. Hotel staff was mixed emotions. The reception guy was very friendly and helpful. The woman was a little dry and could have been friendlier. Location was nice, but 5 minutes from the busy area, but price was good.

Inquire about staff availability prior to booking
I booked this location hoping for a quiet stay but we would have had a much better experience at a larger facility. On several occasions, there was not a single staff person present. On our final night, I informed the driver that we needed to be at the ferry by 8 am the next morning. We went to the lobby at 7:45 am and no one was present. There were no phone books or taxi listings available on site. We waited until 8:10 am, when I called the house's phone line (after looking up my booking online) to tell them no one was present to take our final balance. I was told someone would be there in 5 minutes and then they hung up. We waited until 8:17 am and then walked down the hill with our luggage to get a taxi. En route to the ferry, the driver ran down the taxi and pulled us over, requesting our balance (which included the transport from the house to the ferry that had not been provided). We paid our balance in cash. We ended up missing the 9 am ferry and had to purchase tickets for the next ferry at noon - another 90 Euros.

Beautiful place, awkward airport pickup
Beautiful guesthouse! We appreciated the latenight pickup at the airport (we were delayed and didn’t arrive till after 2 am). However, I wish I would have asked the price in advance—50 euros! Very expensive by Moroccan standards. The driver had a tiny car with no trunk, so we three passengers had to squish together. Each of us had one carryon case and one backpack, but the gentleman whom the driver called to translate in English commented that there was little room because we had an excessive amount of luggage. The driver was kind and helped carry our luggage, but I would think for a 50 euro airport transfer, the car would be more suitable for travelers with luggage. But the guesthouse was beautiful and spacious, the staff kind, and the breakfast very good! Wish we could have stayed longer. I’d recommend guests who need airport service to make it very clear beforehand the price, the number of passengers, and the amount of luggage they expect to have.

Yay Malabata !
The place/room/ gardens/pool/ furniture are beautiful and show case the flavors of Moroccan art and design. Sets the mood for a visit to Morocco! The service was very attentive and flexible. (e.g. the breakfast was served at a time that complimented my travel plans each day). The location was great. Enjoyed the guest house very much.

Amazing stay at Malabata guesthouse
The stay was amazing. Driss and Naima the owners, Hassan and Hadija the staff made our stay superb. We had many interesting and insightful conversations, Hadija made excellent dinners, Si Driss took us to travel around the town - we were extremely lucky to choose Malabata guesthouse, and we feel we've made friends for life.

FABULOUS! Highly Recommended
A beautiful, traditionally decorated building with large, comfortable rooms. Our hosts, Driss and Naema, made us very welcome and could not do enough for us. After meeting us at the port, Driss gave us tea and helped us plan our itinerary with no pressure. We had an idea of where we wanted to go so he made his driver, Hassan, available to us which saved us worrying about taxis. He also arranged a private tour to Chef Chaouen for us. Breakfast was a wide selection of breads and traditional Moroccan pastries and we were invited to request anything else we wanted, like fruit. Although there is no restaurant nearby, Naema cooked a wonderful, traditional dinner for us, at a very reasonable cost. Although this location is a little far from the Medina and city centre, it is a pleasant 45min walk along the new promenade or their driver can take you there in 10 minutes for less than the cost of a taxi. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when returning to Tangier.
