Fodor's Expert Review El Minzah

85, rue de la Liberté, Tangier, Tanger-Tétouan, Morocco

Built in 1930, one of Tangier's most iconic hotels has faded somewhat but still offers beautiful gardens, an elegant patio, the constant sound of falling water from the capacious courtyard, and fine views over the Strait of Gibraltar. Decorated in Moorish style and located in the new city (but just a short walk from the medina), the spacious rooms are richly carpeted and lavishly decorated in an Andalusian style, with rich fabrics, brass, and traditional Moroccan tables, pottery, and artwork.
