We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend during the summer. I have stayed here before many times as a young child and it holds a charm which many hotels with modernisation have lost! It is perfectly situated near the Souk and centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful in accommodating us and organising our private tours. I... More

Amazing hotel that seems to have been locked in a time zone 30 years ago. It must have been a glorious palace in it hey day. Now you can just wander what it must have been like whilst enjoying the huge rooms, beautiful gardens, fantastic staff,super food. Even though its faded I would go back again without question. It feels... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. We arrived on a cold foggy night, no hot drink greeted us, but we were just wanting to get to our room as the foyer was really cold and smelling quite stale. We were taken along narrow corridors that were lined by dark brown rafia making them look dark and uninviting. Our rooms... More

El Minzah has the perfect combination of a somewhat aged exotic character, a wonderful view over the town, and a very high standard of service, including onsite parking. We were fussed over in a very friendly but un-intrusive manner. The breakfast and evening meals were particularly excellent, as well as the music and dance entertainment. We had easy access by...

Despite 5 stars and a landmark reputation I will never come back. Worn out and carpetry everywhere. The worst are the beds which were very small and hard. My room was very small. Bathroom was nice though. The keycards failed evertime when I came back to the room in the afternoon. So back to the reception ....a common problem -... More

Friends were staying at this hotel when I was in Tangier & I visited often (they did not complain about their room or anything). The service was good, especially in reception & the bars. I had breakfast one day, rather late, it was pretty good. I also went to the hairdresser & they were excellent (no English spoken by the... More

The El Minzah is an older hotel with its own charm. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very good. We have stayed there several times and will stay again when we travel to Tangier. Friendly staff.

I heard so much about El Minzah... I should have had expected too much... the building is gorgeous, memories are every where.... but what deceptive experience, absolutely no 5star service. People are nice but are almost absent from any corner... Room are OK need to be upgraded ... I highly recommend to go out for any meal as Tangier is... More

The hotel El Minzah is located in the heart of Tangier, closed to the Medina, opposite to the French Embassy and the Galerie and next to the Place des Canons, and to a lovely bakerie. Facilities are okay, the furniture are a bit old (rusty) but the style is nice. Rooms are large and okay. It is easy to get... More

We stayed here only one night on our way to Fes. I loved the old-world charm of the place. The pool and patio area are lovely and the bar and restaurant areas equally pleasant. The staff were helpful and polite but bar staff were a little grumpier and expected to be tipped regularly. Loved the outfits of the "bellboys" with... More
