I love visiting hotels that have a history and this one have received a long list of mythical personalities. The service is very welcoming and they make sure you are always happy. The pool is great and the room was clean.

For a business trip and a short stay of 36 hours to Tangier I could have not chosen a better place to stay. The El Minzah is located in Rue de la Liberte, wonderfully positioned next to all the places and restaurants you will need on your itinerary. The room was lovely, the staff courteous and attentive, the breakfast wonderful.... More

I heard this hotel was the first hotel in Africa or something like that. It was in a good location and very busy but it looked so old and run down, the lifts were slow and everything was very dark and old. If you can stay in a newer hotel chain it might be better than this place.

Hotel El Minzah is a historic and picturesque sanctuary amidst the hussle and bussle of street life in Tangiers. Located on the hill at the west end of the beach close to the medina, it offers wonderful views from the main restaurant terrace over the town and beach. The several restaurants on the premises offer a variety of food from... More

Firstly let me just say the rating giving has been in accordance with its 5* status... Had it been a 3* I may have rated it higher or at least average. Because that is what El Minza is, a (low) 3*. There is nothing reminiscent of a 5* here. From the hotel it's self, to the staff, the service, the... More

Historic hotel, a bit old-fashioned. Visited by many stars whose pictures in black and white are available in the courtyard of the hotel. The hotel is not bad but needs some warmth, that is not very visible, neither at the reception desk nor elsewhere.... and in my room the only satellite channel was Nilesat, and no Astra and no Hotbird.....

We stayed for one night at the El-Minzah hotel and were very happy with our stay. The location is right in the heart of the port city very close to the entrance of the medina which is in walking distance. Upon entering you definitely feel like you are taken back to the romantic past of tangiers when writers, celebrities, and... More

We were actually on a tour , so not sure about the pricing, but we enjoyed our stay. I did not expect luxury, but was happy overall. The evening meal was okay, and the floor show was great. Local musicians and a terrific belly dancer added to our experience.
