Because of the vibes in this city, and because we were only here for a day, it's hard to evaluate. We did feel safe within the hotel, which we didn't outside. Staff were ok. Tour dinner of chicken on rice was ok also. Lots of memorabilia here of who stayed in the hotel, with many pics of historical figures or... More

I loved the ambience of this older Moroccan hotel. I can just picture it before the commercialization of the area. One can't tell from the street how beautiful this hotel really is. Although probably considered small rooms, the quality is evident. The staff was very accommodating and tried hard to please. A plus was the gallery of famous celebrity photos.

For my 5th stay in Tangiers in the last ten years and my girlfriend's 1st I thought we'd try something a little special. NOT disappointed at all! I booked a sea view with balcony and it was perfect with couple of chairs and a table to enjoy a fabulous panorama of Tangier bay with an aperitif and beautiful at night,... More

We stayed only one night on our train journey to Marrakech. It is a very authentic and atmospheric hotel and I can see that a lot of people really like it. For me, and maybe it was because I was not feeling too well, I was not comfortable here. It is really dark and old fashioned and all the staff... More

From everything we saw by wandering around, this would be a fantasic place to stay while in Tangier. The interior court yard was beautiful as were the dinning room and bar. The view from the terrerace was magnificent.. It would be a joy to stay there.

I have been visiting Tanger for some thirty years having lived there for some time in the early 80s . I found the dear old Minzah to be just as good as ever . ALL THE STAFF were just 100% , the room was lovely and the breakfasts were superb. Nothing was too much trouble . We ate in the... More

The bar at the El Minzah is elegantly appointed, with a great staff and excellent service. We did not stay here, but it's well located between the medina and the new city. Built in the 1930s, it's hosted many famous guests. Great live music most nights. We really enjoyed our time here, most specifically due to the professionalism and hospitality... More

This is an old-fashioned sort of hotel where the staff are polite and friendly .The bars offer alcoholic drinks and food can be chosen from a Moroccan or international menu( both of excellent quality).I am told that the hotel has a well deserved reputation as most luxurious hotel in North Africa,and I can believe it . It truly exudes old... More

We stayed at El Minzah for only one night. Hotel was highly recommended and the initial impression was very good - very nice looking property, helpful staff at the reception, free wifi, etc. Room also looked great with a spectacular view. The beginning of our stay was excellent. However... I do not want to write a "bash" review for this... More

Before I retired, I was able to stay in some of the best hotels around the globe for my work. El Minzah should have been one of them. Not only was I disappointed after having looked at the photos on Internet (they show rooms that look three times the size of what I had) and praise given to food, etc.... More
