El Minzah Hotel

Hotels in northern Morocco, Tangier

Of all the hotels in Tangiers, El Minzah is without a doubt the most sumptuous and elegant.

Of all the hotels in Tangiers, El Minzah is without a doubt the most sumptuous and elegant. El Minzah is one of the few five-star establishments in the city and it was built at the command of John Crichton-Stuart. He was the fourth Marquis of Bute, a British aristocrat with extensive interests in the 'International Zone'.

There are 140 elegantly furnished, air-conditioned, en-suite bedrooms, including 15 suites.  All rooms include mini-bars, satellite television, hair dryers and all the facilities one would expect in a luxury hotel. At El Minzah hotel, you have a big choice of restaurants: International Cuisine at El Erz or Moroccan at El Korsan. Also, the Wine Bar offers delightful cuisine or you can enjoy a meal in the sun at the Masbah Club.

The vast majority of the bedrooms have a sun-facing, south-easterly aspect, allowing uninterrupted views of the gardens and the renowned Bay of Tangiers.

El Minzah faces the strait of Gibraltar and is close to the beach, the port, the Tangiers Train Station and is 12 kilometres from Tangiers Airport.

The views from the El Minzah are stunning. One can survey the Bay of Tangiers, the Straits of Gibraltar and the Rif Mountains, against which backdrop is set the old medina and Cap Malabata. Nestled in the luxuriant gardens are beds of roses and giant geraniums, lilies, hibiscus and countless exotic plants. The immaculate lawns are shaded by palm, orange and eucalyptus trees.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver.
