An accomodati at El Minzah is just like falling back into the past... The most famous spy-hotel in Morocco is still a very nice place to stay in tanger. Wonderful location close to the heart of the city. Walking distance to the whole medina. Recommended!

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.

After 800 Moroccan Dirham I left feeling hot, greasy and annoyed! I booked a hammam/massage appt and asked to also use the gym while making appt on the phone, they said it was fine. When I got there I found out the gym was 150 more. Then the gym had no AC, no water, no fan, and no towels, and... More

Three friends and I spent a night at the El Minzah which was once known as one if not the finest and most charming hotel in Tanger. But these times are long gone. The relatively small rooms where we stayed were located on the third floor and offered a nice view of the nearby port but this was about the... More

They charged us 80 dinars for a coffee because it's a "5 star" absolute rubbish. The code was rubbish and you can feel that they're robbing you. A coffee at another really good place was 10 dinars. No receipt. You get the "welcome were here for your money" feel that's tangiers is all about. Fake smiles n all

Stayed here as part of a group as part of a New Year break. The hotel and staff are very pleasant, it gives you a real authentic Moroccan feel. The restaurant was lovely, huge portions and very tasty. Right in the center of town and yet it was surprisingly quiet. I am quite a light sleeper and I had no... More

Hotel is in a nice location close to the Medina with every convenience in walking distance. It is a very old building which is kept in good condition. The room was average. One thing I expected in a hotel of this standard is a complimentary bottle of water in the room which was missing. The room was clean but the... More

This is more about the restaurant/bar than the hotel rooms etc. I have known this hotel for many years, used to come and have lunch in the 70's in its heyday. It was always "The" hotel in Tangier. I was here for a weekend and stayed at its sister hotel nearby, Villa de France. A friend and I decided to... More
