It was not the first time i came to enjoy having drinks in the shisha lounge looking for quite place to relaxe. Today i came earlier before only 15 minutes i sit by the pool waiting for the lounge to be opened. The waiter came and tald me that I have to order something despite the fact that I tald him that i was waiting for the lounge to be opened. Really it was an extremly bad attitude from his side to tell us you have to order then when the lounge will be opened you have to order again!!!!!! and, as i said still only 10 minutes the lounge to be opened. i requested gently from him that please can you allow us to wait only 10 minutes untill the lounge will be opned unfortunatly he refused saying that you can have a walk outside the hotel then we can come back again!!!!!!!! From a big chain in hospitality I was not expecting something like that.

The bed is rock hard. I felt like I was sleeping on the floor and woke up with a sore back. At the breakfast room which can house 200 people easily, tables are reserved without any sign that they are reserved, and the garcon pushed me around telling me where to sit, where I can't sit. I felt thoroughly uninvited to this giant space, owned by the garcon. They don't have quiet hours, and my neighbors made a raucus. The sound reverberated through the walls. I do not recommend the cage-like rooms. The balconies have no views. Just come for a drink and take some pictures and stay away.

Local 4-Star hotel, clean & friendly staff but basic in terms of room service. Just towels, soap & shampoo. Heard hotels here are still struggling after having just open up to travellers this year following the aftermath of the Arab Spring. Very few European travellers and even less Asian ones. Wifi was available in the lobby and rooms but not in restaurant and other areas. It was also very weak especially during peak hours in the evenings with guests checking in.

We spent one night on our trip around Tunis and stopover in Kairouan. Probably the best hotel in town, but not a 5* hotel. Rooms are nice but equipment is old and not well maintained (perhaps due to lack of tourist): toilet cistern made loud noise while refilling after use, beds and linen is old (worst pillow I can remember), sunbeds broken around the pool, the building is astonishing but you could feel the lack of tourist visiting the town. The lobby was always empty, the corridors reminded me of those on The Shinning movie. And staff seemed demotivated. The hotel needs to keep up with the level of a 5 stars

Calling it a 5* hotel is pushing it a bit, especially when considering the breakfast, but it is definitely a good hotel with a beautiful decoration and theme. It could REALLY use a good renovation though.

I stayed there for only 3 hours after my wedding party but it was wonderful to met the great team Hanen, Qassim and the lady who worked PM shift on 11 August 17 (Forgot the name, Sorry) They are very professional, friendly and courteous. They made beautiful honeymoon set up in the room and Thanks to Qassim for approving my request I will definitely visit again. Keep up the good work guys Merci Cheers

Stayed one night in this beautiful Kairouan hotel. This property is a successful conversion of Middle-Ages stables, tastefully designed, fully functional in the heart of the old medina. I strongly recommend it !

There 1 night, in April. Beautifully furnished room (#104) with Maghrebi motif. No obvious drainage in toilet, so floor stayed wet. An ashtray was provided in the room, and the lobby was full of smokers with heavy smoke creating a barrier between the reception desk and the rooms. Needs to remedy drainage problems in toilet and bathroom. Needs a no-smoking policy throughout the hotel.

I'm very fond of this hotel. It's 2 mins from the medina, and is an absolute sanctuary. Quiet, calm, cool, spacious - and it's a privilege walking into such an ancient, beautifully adapted building. Whatever maintenance issues they've had in the past have been fixed: the pool is outstanding, and lit beautifully at night. An evening with a beer under the moon is heaven. The room I had was splendid, clean and cool. Service is variable, in the Tunisian way. Reception staff and bar manager were wonderful, helpful, friendly, reassuring. The guys in the restaurant probably don't realize how hostile they are, simply by saying nothing (or next to nothing) - they seem unable to smile, and do the minimum. Ultimately, though, it's a privilege staying at a unique place like this and a great base for exploring a very special city. Other hotels in the area are desperate in comparison.

Not exactly a luxury hotel. The place was dark, frayed and non too clean. The premise is great, stay in an historic fortress. The staff were not friendly, the food was forgettable steam table fare, and with just ONE entrance, a fire hazard. I tried to find other exit doors. If you don't exit through the front door, you must go out into the central area around the pool and wait for help. The city does not have a fire brigade, so good luck if there is a fire. The shower and sink water was cold. Do-able if you are visiting in July, a miserable experience in December.
