My fiance and I spent two nights at El Minzah Hotel in mid-August 2014. We were told (by travel agent and others who'd been to Tangier) that El Minzah was the "only 5 star hotel in Tangier." While that may have been the case in the 1950s and 60s, it certainly isn't so anymore. The rooms are basic and the... More

Good location with a view over the medina and the sea. This hotel has seen its better days but a good place to stay. Even better with a balcony. Room was small, service was good, good prices and helpfull staff.

This wasn’t the first time my partner and I had stayed at the El Minzah, but it was most definitely the last. In the twenty years that have passed since our first stay there almost everything about the hotel has deteriorated so much that it seems quite inexplicable how the El Minzah can still retain its five-star status, when the...

We have just left this appalling excuse for a hotel after 1 nights stay. To say it was the worst hotel and staff I've experienced is an understatement. Upon check in we were met by 2 rude guys who were so unfriendly & unwelcoming. We requested quiet rooms. They gave us rooms facing a courtyard on the 2nd floor, this... More

Hotel is a little threadbare but comfortable and well located. Service is slow in the bar and restaurant, but it is more of a cultural thing. Very good location if you're on foot. Very close to the old city. We got a car and driver for a 3 hour excursion for 60 Euros plus tip. Very reasonable and worthwhile.

Our family stayed here for 2 nights. The best part of the room was the private terrace & the breakfast buffet. Make sure you order the mint tea. The staff were very attentive. The location was perfect! It is located right outside the medina.

This was our first time to Morocco, and we took the ferry from Spain to Tangier. The hotel was a convenient 5 minute cab ride from the port (the cab ride, in a grand taxi, cost 6 euro). We were very impressed from the moment we walked into the hotel. Morocco is much different than Europe, and can be a... More

A very old world style of hotel as shown by all the photos of the guests who have stayed there.We stayed two nights but separated by our 9 day tour of Morocco but we were impressed. The ambience of the place is very good with a nice room and ample breakfast. The restaurant in the bar downstairs was excellent and... More
