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

In Morocco we say "beauty has gone but traces remain". It applies here very well. I was disapointed by almost everything in this hotel. It lost its magic. Besides the location and the sea view (when you have a room with a sea view), and some other places such as the Terrsasse, the Wine Bar , everything is old and... More

We did not stay at this hotel. We stopped in and had lunch. Food was terrible, Couscous wasn't cooked right. Service was horrible, there is another review from September this year, that goes into great detail about the quality, service and food. I concur all that this guest reviewed on, we had a similar experience. Never again, when there is... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this timeless property. It was built in 1930 and it's arabic styling makes it easy to picture oneself having a drink on the patio or dining with some of the big names from the 1940's and 50's that really did walk the hallways. Rex Harrison, Rita Hayworth, Rock Hudson to name... More

I have stayed in The El Minzah dozens of times in the last forty years and have found it to be a true constant in a fast changing Tanger. On my most recent visit the staff were their usual helpful selves - absolutely nothing was too much trouble - we were treated regally which I have always found to be... More

A traditional style hotel in a good location with a great pool for swimming lengths. However , the service was very poor on the whole and sometimes just rude. The hotel is tired and is in need iof refurbishment . Drinks are expensive and the food overpriced,

This hotel is living on it`s past reputation. It is furnished in a traditional style, however it is obvious that everything, even soft furnishings are decades old and poorly maintained, bearing in mind this is a country of smokers, the smell of stale smoke lingers throughout. The standard of the hotel is poor, paint splashes on floors, broken tiles on... More
