Aparently its had 2 stars taken but it is far more than 3 star. For those wanting standardised rooms in beige and mushroom colour its not for u. It...

We were here for only one night, but it was beautiful. We visited during Ramadan, which meant that finding a cocktail was not so easy, but the Moroccan tea more than made up for that. The staff was kind and accommodating, the rooms were clean and spacious, the building was beautiful and fun to explore. When I return to Morocco,...

This was our family's first experience with Morocco. The hotel was exceptional.. except: we coordinated transportation through the hotel prior to arrival.. just to be safe. Our family normally 'wings it' so we were excited to have a driver with our name on a sign waiting for us after customs. When we loaded up in the cab it became apparent...

This place needs a complete management overhaul. We had drinks at the piano bar last week and the drinks were ridiculously overpriced and minuscule (I have the most minimalist vodka & tonic ever - it was like a Donald Judd creation). The service, however, was the worst. We waited for ever to order and the waiter disappeared after bringing us...

I didn't spend any night in the hotel but I used to visit it in order to enjoy some drinks with my friends in the open area. There is a huge swimming pool which is really nice, plus the atmosphere is really nice, it reflects the warmth of the Moroccan hospitality

The former grande-dame of Tangiers' hotels just lost 2 of its 5-stars, quite deservedly. It has lost its lustre. Rooms are in various states of disrepair, lots of knicks and scratches, service is spotty and the staff are on edge. It needs a new investor and an infusion of cash for a proper renovation. My dinner tonight in their Moroccan...

We honestly could not find a thing wrong with this hotel. It was a beautiful "palace". And sooooo very clean. The room was a good size and very nicely decorated with hidden lights and elaborate furnishings. You could not hear any noise from the hallways or other rooms. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and...

My husband and I with our daughter stayed at this Hotel for four wonderful nights with fantastic welcoming, hospitable and lovely people. Although, Tangier the beautiful city in Morocco and definitely worth visiting but make sure that this place is where you stay at for its welcoming staff, perfect location, nice sea views and the excellent service. You would also...

My last visit to Tangiers, and the El Minzah, dates back some 30 years and I was really looking forward to my weekend booked for Sept 2016. I was not disappointed and really enjoyed my stay. Of course there are now so many new and modern hotels in the city but the El Minzah has a special charm which sets...

delightfully Moroccan hotel, very traditional but not 5* as we would know it, I can imagine it was a fabulous 5* in its day but now bedrooms need a facelift. The grounds are really lovely, very nice to enjoy a G & T in gardens, hopefully in the same spot where Mr Winston Churchill once sat. This was the celebrity...
