Hotel Continental

We stayed here when we visited Tangier. It was like going back in time. I half expected Poirot to come walking down the stairs (no elevator).

The hotel is full of old things from decades ago…an old sewing machine, a telephone switchboard, water containers, vases, an ancient coffee machine, a saddle…all sorts.

There were lots of beautiful plaster decorations painted intricately. Tiles covered many surfaces too. The staircase was the old marble kind.

The hotel sits above a curve of the main road, overlooking the waterways and the comings and goings below. There is a terrace, where a huge group from the cruise ship came to have afternoon tea. It really was splendid!
