This hotel is famed for being Winston Churchill's fave place to stay. I understand it's also been visited by many Hollywood celebrities over the years. None of that was enough to put me off and I enjoyed three nights here, alas on business. The decor is moorish and Moroccan in style, albeit a little dated. However the food was pretty...

Comfortable clean room with excellent ensuite. Easy to walk into central Tangier, but quiet. Elegant decoration and very tasty food. Unfortunately Only stayed overnight but would definitely return if wanted to stay in Tangier again.

The price and the stars given to this hotel are in no way woth it. The hotel might have had its days, years ago. The photos and some reviews here had me booking 4 nights at it, I felt fooled. The location is not bad bad, the view, is nice, and the outside of the hotel has its charm, but...

Loved the history of this hotel! Supposedly Winston Churchill's favorite. Our room was clean, decorated with character, and comfortable. We did not have much of a view - the shopping street below and straight out the window, over the rooftops, was the McDonald's sign! Mercy! A few couples in our group had difficulty finding a room with air conditioning. One...

This hotel really made the trip great! Tangier can really be chaotic, dirty and shady that even if I love the exoticness of the place so much, no one is spared from culture shock coming form the west. So El Minzah was really a great refuge! The people were helpful, the food was great - especially the morroccan dinner which...

My wife and I along with another couple had the distinct pleasure of staying 3 nights in this venerable old hotel. I was most impressed with the service and attention given to us and our various needs. We dined twice in the restaurants and had complimentary breakfast all three mornings. The waitstaff tended to our every request. They did whatever...
