A legendary hotel: photos of Rita Hayworth and Yves Saint Laurent staying here, but the élan of 20th C celebrity has not been maintained in the 21st. There is a feeling of decline: a sense of paradise lost.

This is a top-level Moroccan hotel and the place to be if travelers aren't feeling too adventurous. The unofficial street guides know better than to approach a person inside this hotel, as they will likely run into trouble with officials and official guides. The bar has a nice ambiance and the main Moroccan style restaurant will have some quality, live...

We just wanted to step foot into Morocco and shop around a little then go back to Spain. We had our round trip tickets but unfortunately, the ferry service shut down without notice. There was no one to help us. They closed the ticket office and that was it. We found this hotel on Tripadvisor and booked a room. Getting...

We have been to the hotel just to have a dinner in its magic terrace inside. The atmosphere was very nice. We ordered few typical Moroccan plates, such Cous-Cous, Tallins, The service was in line with 5 stars of this hotel. A bit pricy but if you are moderate on ordering the bill would be affordable.

We stayed at the El Minzah hotel for a night as part of our Globus guided tour, which spent a night in Tangier. Overall we found the hotel to be of a good standard and met our requirements. The hotel is located in a fairly nice, rather old section of Tangier. Just up the street from the hotel is the...

Because of the vibes in this city, and because we were only here for a day, it's hard to evaluate. We did feel safe within the hotel, which we didn't outside. Staff were ok. Tour dinner of chicken on rice was ok also. Lots of memorabilia here of who stayed in the hotel, with many pics of historical figures or...

I loved the ambience of this older Moroccan hotel. I can just picture it before the commercialization of the area. One can't tell from the street how beautiful this hotel really is. Although probably considered small rooms, the quality is evident. The staff was very accommodating and tried hard to please. A plus was the gallery of famous celebrity photos.

For my 5th stay in Tangiers in the last ten years and my girlfriend's 1st I thought we'd try something a little special. NOT disappointed at all! I booked a sea view with balcony and it was perfect with couple of chairs and a table to enjoy a fabulous panorama of Tangier bay with an aperitif and beautiful at night,...

We stayed only one night on our train journey to Marrakech. It is a very authentic and atmospheric hotel and I can see that a lot of people really like it. For me, and maybe it was because I was not feeling too well, I was not comfortable here. It is really dark and old fashioned and all the staff...

From everything we saw by wandering around, this would be a fantasic place to stay while in Tangier. The interior court yard was beautiful as were the dinning room and bar. The view from the terrerace was magnificent.. It would be a joy to stay there.
