Classic Hotel From Tangier's Golden Years

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 31, 2010

We enjoyed our overnight stay in this old hotel which was being refurbished. Our room was comfortable, shutters over the windows. When we opened the shutters we were rewarded with an outstanding view to the port. Our room was #211.

The bathroom had been fully refurbished to a high standard.

The gardens and pool area had been fully refurbished and looked outstanding. I walked around the pool area the morning we left and wished we had spent some time poolside the previous evening.

The El Minzah Hotel was an icon in its day and I believe when the refurbishment is complete it will be an outstanding place to stay. We were there September, 2008.

The Facilities

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

In the centre of the hotel is a large paved Andalusian courtyard. The hotel also has available a beauty/barber shop, gym, laundry service, babysitting service and parking including for RV’s. There is a steam room where you can soak or you can have a tradition ‘soap-up, scrub-down’ for a reasonable fee.

In the movie ‘Casablanca’ the famous scene of Ricks café was modelled on the bar at El Minzah hotel.

The Restaurants

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 27, 2009

At one time the El Minzah had the distinction of being ‘one of the most luxurious in North Africa. The hotel has 3 restaurants which serve both international and Moroccan meals, and a piano bar. The bar seemed male dominated and a bit gloomy by night. Around the pool you can also have lunch served. Not sure which restaurant I ate in but it was good but nothing exceptional. Reception didn’t appear to that friendly but I did find one evening a porter who was only too willing to have his photo taken with a friend and even directed us to a good spot to have it taken.

The Rooms

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 27, 2009

The hotel now has 3 floors and 140 rooms and suites all with air-conditioning Some have balconies looking out over the bay. There was quite a lot of extras in the room including a safe, mini bar, satellite TV and fridge. The door had good locks on it so it felt safe being there. My room was overlooking the Rue de la Liberte and could be a little noisy – however it was interesting watching the local activity.

El Minzah Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 27, 2009

While reported to be a five star hotel, it certainly doesn’t quite measure up to be what you would normally associate a top hotel to be. Having said that, the hotel was centrally located, just up from Gran Socco and quite pleasant with an old world Moroccan arabesque charm. The hotel was built under the order of the 4th Marquis of Bute, John Crichton-Stuart. In 1930. Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and Hollywood elite are reported to have stayed here.

Close to the Medina

by written on April 8, 2008

This is a famous and great hotel, probably the best in Tangier, but I consider that it's less expensive for its value than I should be.

Apart from the hotel itself and the pool (pic), it offers a good view of the port from the window of the room (if you are lucky to get it) (last pic).

There is also a wellness centre inside the hotel.

Directions: At a few meters from the Medina and the old part of the city.
