Welcome to the El Minzah Hotel, Tangier, Morocco. The Hotel was built in a Spanish-Moorish style in 1930 and it is located in the mystical city of Tangier. El Minzah faces the strait of Gibraltar and is close to the beach, the port, the Tangiers Train Station and is 12 kilometers from the Tangiers Airport.
Of all the Hotels in Tangiers, El Minzah is without a doubt the most sumptuous and elegant. El Minzah Hotel 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'. The El Minzah Hotel was constructed in a pure Hispano-Moorish style and it is true to the architectural heritage of Morocco whilst embodying all the comfort of an English gentleman's club.Situated on the Straits of Gibraltar, where Europe and Africa almost touch, the El Minzah was the fashionable heart of 'International Tangiers'. It was then that the Hotel first acquired its deserved reputation as one of the most luxurious in North Africa. The passage of time has neither marred the charms of the El Minzah Hotel nor witnessed any diminution in its unrivalled position as the leading Hotel in northern Morocco. 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.
