El Minzah Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I am in this city about once a year and always choose the El Minzah. Close to the heart of everything, an excellent staff, some rooms with great views, old world bar. Just great. If you like stepping back in time, without sacrificing luxury, this is for you.

The El Minzah has a great location central to all the major sites in Tangier and just a stones throw from the central Medina. The hotel itself I would describe as classic, old world charm with lots of staff, great service overall. We had suites with views of the harbour, very picturesque. The rooms were starting to show their age but still comfortable. We availed of the hotel restaurant and bar. Both were good. We also attended a somewhat cheesy belly dancing show put on by the hotel over dinner. The walls of the courtyard are filled with pictures of famous guests. We had our won brush with fame while we were staying here, contestants from the Amazing Race were staying at the hotel with their film crew, we had a brief chat with them over Breakfast go green team.

We stayed 3 nights and loved it! It's a place with great feel to it, not one of those modern boxes, but a place you really feel you are in Tangier. Awesome breakfast, super friendly staff, location is so close to everything, swimming pool is beautiful, Views to the city below from the roof are spectacular and I would for sure stay here again, no doubt.

This hotel knocked the ball out of the park! It is close to the ferry terminal and the medina. The room was lovely and the hotel itself was out of this world. We had dinner in the dining room and the food was wonderful! They even set us up with a guide to take us to Chefchouen the next day - he was great too!

Service is great and the staff is very friendly . Food is also great dinner and breakfast was great. The location is also excellent . I wished I have good stay longer before I went to Spain . Hopefully next time .

meal in resturant great, breakfast really good, live music (jazz) over meal in open court, and pianist and singer in bar until late, service fantastic, building beautiful, would highly recommend location good.

For the real Moroccan experience of Tangier, this should be your destination. Authentic decor and feel to the hotel. Good restaurant offering great breakfast and dinner menu. Good bar and beautiful pool.

This hotel has it all! Comfortable spacious rooms, several choices for dining (all top class) with good choice of Moroccan wines, great breakfast, relaxed piano bar, amazing pool area, superb staff and management, everywhere is absolutely spotless and full of charm and history. Excellent location for visiting both old and new town and surrounding areas. We spent 10 days here and everyone who works here- from chamber maid to management made us feel at home from day 1. Many thanks to all the staff for an unforgettable holiday! Shokran! Room 314 ( les Irlandais )

This hotel is step back in time with so much character, amazing decor and you feel like you are in a movie set. Incredible views of the port and bay with the sun rising while eat breakfast. A real treat to stay in such an iconic hotel.

We stayed two days and my travel partner returned for another two when he didn't like the Raid we booked. I believe the rooms have been updated. It has a great pool wich only fault is it closes at 5pm. While the dinner menu is expensive they offer a Moroccan and a European version. It was lovely sitting out on the quite balcony in the evening. The inner patio was also nice! Lovely breakfast! The hotel still has an era of grandeur. Some of the front staff felt a bit pushy but I think it was more of a cultural divide. Close to the Medina and a nice square to watch the men coming out of the mosques from the call of prayer. We would defiantly return to El Minzah.
