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

I have to admit, my hotel was my favorite part of my little trip to Tangier. The decor was beautiful and very Moroccan. The balconies had beautiful views of the city. The pool was nice and refreshing and a lovely place to relax, surrounded by the gardens. The courtyard was such a nice place to eat. The staff accommodated us... More

Its all about atmosphere and ambiance at the famous El Minzah hotel in Tangiers. It is true that the hotel is in need of a little TLC but that is really not important. Once you cross the doorstep from the bustling rue de la Liberté at the entrance of Tangier's old-town center you time-travel into a bygone era where this... More

The spa is excellent. They use top grade European products and they take their time. The price - about 60 euro - is not a bargain but not too bad given that there seem to be few other options. The foot massage was also excellent. The facilities are clean and relatively modern (it's a new annex building). The pool looked... More

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...
