El Minzah Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Heard so much about this hotel. Finally made my way there with a group of visiting friends to find out that this hotel has closed its door for good. Apparently, it used to be a gem back in the day before hitting rock bottom and shutting its door a few days ago.

Spent 3 night for business purposes. The rooms are ok size with great amenities, however everything starts to look old and some refurbishment would be quite good. What is pretty unbelievable is that when breakfast starts you have almost nothing available and full breakfast service isn’t available until 30 minutes passed The best thing of the hotel is internet what is very fast and great if you have to work and the different restaurants within the hotel, but it’s insufficient to compensate the expectation for a 5* hotel which used to be the reference in town

Loved loved this hotel. Perfectly located close to the central Medina, close to the seaside. This hotel was so charming because of its old world Moroccan decor and flavor. Classic elegance. Our room was facing the sea with a little terrace and it was very nice. The hotel is being shut down for a few months as they are going to upgrade the actual rooms but will be keeping the beautiful ambience. The staff was as nice and friendly as can be... Since it was my birthday.. they even came up to my room and sang me Happy Birthday with a fabulous cake! Breakfast in the morning was beautifully served in the main dining area with a wonderful view of the sea. I would definitely stay here again... Just beautiful and a great rate as well!

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.
