In an old Merchanthouse right in the medina of Tangier you can rent a very comfortable double room with a kingsize bed, elegant readingchairs, the private bathroom with s/t/s is not en suite. Lot´s of communal space inside and outside with 4 terraces

The space

Sherazade is on the first floor of the old Merchanthouse. Wooden floors give the room a warm feeling and a colonial touch. The room has two French balconies with a view on the street and the place Sakaya with a little market twice a week. The colourful tiles and ceilings are just beautiful in this room. All original from around 1898. Lay back and relax on the kingsize wooden bed and enjoy the ambiance!

Guest access

Quests have acces to a lot of communal space in the house.
the reading corner and receptionroom on the ground floor, the Moroccan salon on the first floor and a workingarea (free wifi everywhere!). And on top of that alot of outsidespace for
you. What about 4 terraces and a sundeck with sea- and kasbahview. Wauh!!

Interaction with guests

As your host I will be around for all your questions. As a Tanjawi since 2006 I can give you good tips where to go , to eat, to shop etc If you need a reliable driver for daytrips to Assilah, Tetouan, Chefchaouen, Mohamed is your man. Like to have a Moroccan dinner at home, Abdullah makes delicious dishes. Or you want to make the first day a walking cultural tour through the medina, kasbah and the Marshan. Then Els is your woman. She speaks a lot of lanquages and knows everything about Tangier´s fascinating history and all it´s eccentric people.

Other things to note

It's good to know that the room is on the street side so yes it can be a little noisy......for people that don't fall in a deep sleep after the wandering around and all the different impressions of the medinalife :))

Peter was fantastic to deal with; he responded quickly to any messages, was willing to meet us at the entrance to the medina to lead us to his riad, and was very helpful in suggesting places to visit. An amazing host who you can tell enjoys welcoming guests to his place! The Merchanthouse is beautifully decorated and has the feel of what it might have been like to have lived there 100 years ago.

The house is even better than it looks in the picture. I enjoyed my one-night stay in the heart of Medina of Tangier. Thank Peter for his hospitality.

Staying with Peter was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip to Morocco. Peter was a gracious and helpful host, the house was absolutely stunning and filled with good art and the best books. I'll most definitely be staying at Maison Arabesque again in the future, and recommending it to friends and relatives as well.

Peter's hospitality and home were the perfect base to explore Tanger. Fantastic location and a beautiful roof top with views across the whole medina. I spent a lovely couple of days here and loved it.

Gorgeous house and gracious host, we had the best time! Peter's area felt very safe, while busy, and we really got a local experience of Tangier here. It's not a quite city, but we didn't come to Tangier for tranquility. His house felt like a beautiful oasis from the lovely and inspiring chaos outside. Thank you, Peter!

I am Peter Van der Drift living in Tangier , Morocco, since 2006. Before making this major change in my life I was working as a manager/consultant in the Netherlands based in Amsterdam.
Now I split my time between those two cities but I love to travel around the world as well.
Interested in art, architecture, (interior) design, literature , movies etc etc.
As a people-person meeting new quests in the Merchanthouse from different cultures with different backgrounds is for me always truly interesting My motto is to enjoy life NOW!

Cheers! Peter
