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...

Beautiful decor with grand layout together with the attentiveness of the staff brought a grandiose atmosphere to this establishment. A large center courtyard where one can rest, have a drink, breakfast , lunch or dinner. A piano bar/restaurant for breakfast/lunch/dinner with 2 patios, one overlooking the ocean and another overlooking the large swimming pool. There is another Moroccan style restaurant...

This is a lovely old hotel. Very Andalusian in style. Large, comfortable rooms; great period decor, nice views, close to the action of the city centre. We had a delicious Moroccan meal in the lovely courtyard and a great breakfast the next morning. A great introduction to Morocco. The only slight glitch was the clerk on check out who was...

You come to this place understanding you are not getting the NY plaza but an experience in Tanger of both historic and current Morocco. It's true things are a bit dated in terms of decor but that is part of the wonderful charm. I disagree with those who say the service is poor. For us, it was wonderfully attentive and...

El Minzah is a very famous old hotel in the heart of Tangiers. The hotel proudly adorn the walls with photos of previous famous guests who have stayed there. Such famous figures as Yves Sant Laurent, and Rita Hayworth and a host of others, all tell you of this hotels past glory days. It is indeed a very nice hotel...

It was a nice, clean hotel. Nice resort feel with a decent-sized pool. The history behind the hotel and its famous visitors was pretty cool. I would stay again. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that it was so easy to get lost inside the hotel.

I love visiting hotels that have a history and this one have received a long list of mythical personalities. The service is very welcoming and they make sure you are always happy. The pool is great and the room was clean.

For a business trip and a short stay of 36 hours to Tangier I could have not chosen a better place to stay. The El Minzah is located in Rue de la Liberte, wonderfully positioned next to all the places and restaurants you will need on your itinerary. The room was lovely, the staff courteous and attentive, the breakfast wonderful....

I heard this hotel was the first hotel in Africa or something like that. It was in a good location and very busy but it looked so old and run down, the lifts were slow and everything was very dark and old. If you can stay in a newer hotel chain it might be better than this place.

Hotel El Minzah is a historic and picturesque sanctuary amidst the hussle and bussle of street life in Tangiers. Located on the hill at the west end of the beach close to the medina, it offers wonderful views from the main restaurant terrace over the town and beach. The several restaurants on the premises offer a variety of food from...
