5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We did not stay at this hotel so our review is based solely on us eating a meal here. Service was fantastic. Food was very good and we'll presented. The place looked very clean and the pool area was very inviting. A nice touch was the hotel manager thanking us for visiting his hotel.

The hotel is inside the old fort (kasbah) walls. The Café is in what was once he jail. So it is quite an experience to stay here and take in all the history. The rooms are made in the traditional style, complete with fully tiled rooms, dark carved wood, a closed terrace and the old-style windows with shutters that were apparently built like that way back in order to allow the women who were stuck in the houses to see the outside world without being seen. Unfortunately, this makes the rooms rather dark. The beds are firm which like, with nice warm covers in the winter. There is no gym just an outside pool , unheated. The breakfast buffet is good, but more fruit would be good. Poor selection of tea so bring your own black tea if that is your drink of choice. Tunisia is not a black tea place in general though. Dinner is so so but a good option if you don't have the energy to go far, but there are good and budget options nearby. It is very close to the big mosque but frankly with 45 mosques in the neighbouring medina and about 350 in the city, I can't imagine you could find a place where you can avoid hearing the call to prayer. You have to just learn to tune it out if it is not your thing. WIFI was good. But in previous stays it wasn't working everywhere.

Stayed one night. The hotel is located near a mosque and we were awakened at 5 am by a defeating call to prayer over the loud-speaker, which went on for several minutes. Just as we were trying to fall back asleep, there were two more calls 10-15 minutes apart, although shorter and not as loud. The hotel has several shortcomings. There is only one small elevator - guests have to wait (or take the stairs) while the staff carry luggage. The room had only one poorly located electrical outlet (not counting the one the TV was plugged in). Beds and pillows were reasonably comfortable. The A/C was not working and we had to sleep with the window open. The bathroom was old but functional. Complimentary Wi-Fi. Mediocre breakfast: no fresh fruit or healthy items. Stay elsewhere if you want to get some sleep.

They turned the old Kasbah into a 5 star hotel, not really 5 star by it is decent and clean. Location it's prime, just by the Medina. Good guarded parking, good wi-fi. Beautiful grounds, very well maintained landscape. Didnt use the pool, nut it looked good in the night time. Nice lobby, rooms are clean and well maintained. Not cheap for Tunisia, and mostly the restaurant, but there are options. For dinner head out and turn right on the main street, there are a lot of small places with great food and charcoal BBQ. Two things really bothered me. 1 was the shower. The controls and the shower head was on the long side of the bath tub and the shower curtain was a joke, no place to take a decent shower. check my pictures. On top of that the shower head holder was sliding off on the bar, could not be adjusted, it was shooting water all over the place but not on your top body. That was one. The other thing I would mention was the restaurant, you can't pick your table, you have to be sited just like a kid. A waiter came and had me moved from the table I sat at because I was only by myself. The guy at the egg station can only do some kind of omelette, he made o mess of my over easy eggs, an 8 year old could have done better, he completely destroyed them. there are snacks and beverages in the room, they look good, see pictures, but they all cost money, don't open the pastries plate or the fruit basket, they will charge you the full price.. I would expect at least a bottle of free water included in this price, again, not cheap. It is a nice hotel, don't get me wrong, but you would expect a little better from its name and location.I was there end of February 2018.

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
