Situated on the Straits of Gibraltar, where Europe and Africa almost touch, El Minzah is a haven of peace and tranquility. During your stay you can relax in the luxuriant gardens, nestled within beds of roses and giant geraniums, lilies, hibiscus and countless exotic plants. The immaculate lawns are shaded by palm, orange and eucalyptus trees. The hotel’s 140 charming rooms are furnished with polished woods and brass, with ornaments and pictures setting off the grandeur of the hotel. Enjoy dinner outdoors in the courtyard or in one of the other restaurants or bars; sit back and enjoy great food, ambiance, and live entertainment. Built in a Spanish Moorish style, El Minzah boasts stunning views over the Bay of Tangier, the Straits of Gibraltar and the Rif Mountains.
Of all the hotels in Tangiers, El Minzah is without a doubt the most sumptuous and elegant. El Minzah is one of the few 5-star establishments in the city. Built in 1930 at the command of John Crichton-Stuart, the 4th Marquis of Bute, a British aristocrat with extensive interests in the area.
The Andalusian patio is the heart of the hotel; entering through the magnificently carved sandstone portal and iron studded wooden doors of the El Minzah, you access the patio via a flight of marble steps. Its architecture, fountains and orange trees create an exquisite atmosphere for dining from morning into the evening. In addition to this, the pillars, crowned by Moorish-Corinthian capitals, support an arcade that has walls which are lavishly embellished with hand-cut blue and white Moroccan mosaics.
The hotel has recently been enlarged by the addition of a third floor built in the same architectural style as the original building. It boasts 140 elegantly furnished air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms, including 15 suites. 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.
The bedrooms are situated off elegant, richly carpeted and furnished Hispano-Moorish corridors. The design and decor reflects the magnificence and purity of Andalusian taste, where restraint and richness are considered of equal importance in producing harmonious interiors.
