Hotel Le Pacha3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I don't know why I always see so many bad reviews for this hotel! I stay here all the time when I come to Tunis, it is my go-to place. The value is good for the price, there is free wifi in the rooms, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the bathtub is a great bonus! Breakfast was different than usual on my most recent trip as they had remodelled the dining room, but there was a decent selection and I enjoyed it still. It is located a quick 5 minute drive away from city centre, and is relatively quiet.
If ignore noise from the club night in the last floor, funny smell in the toilet and overall poor levels of cleaning, then is kind of OK, at least breakfast is good..... would not suggest to stay here.
Le Pacha is located near the famous independence street. It is a very short taxi ride and taxi fares are incredibly low compared with European and US taxis. Hotel itself is about average except that hotel guests can hear the non stop car honking noises. That bothered me a lot.
Stayed 4 nights here. The location is good for the airport and city. A taxi from the airport cost 10 TND. To the airport only 3 TND. Rooms are spacious but lack tea/coffee making facilities. My room didn't have a small fridge but my friend's did. Not a big deal as it was October but might be in high summer heat. Previous reviews have mentioned loud music from a club next door. I was in a room overlooking the side street on the 2nd floor. I did hear music and shouting outside late at night, but it didn't keep me awake too long. Breakfast on the 7th floor restaurant was varied and plentiful. No complaints about that. No eateries in the vicinity. But a short cab ride will get you to lots of nice restaurants. Cabs are very cheap in Tunis.
Location is fine. A few minutes walk from La Fayette, the bathroom is ok but the food is very bad. The receptionists are nice but the guys at the restaurant are indifferent. The internet is super fast and the wifi is free of charge.
This hotel was seriously overpriced, even though we got a considerable discount. Very poor service, needed to ask 3 times for 2 more towels so that our triple room had a towel each. Bathroom tired, not too clean and everything smelled of cigarette smoke. We were to leave very early and couldn't get so much as a cup of tea. Would not recommend. Better value for money in the casbah and much nicer location than Le Pacha.
This hotel has a nice location, close to the center but not at the max traffic. We can say good hotel comparing the price. Cleaning is OK, breakfast also OK. So in general it is good as B&B hotel in Tunisia.
I've stayed at this hotel numerous times, and never with any issues. Check-in process is very easy and quick, and staff glad to help you with your luggage to the room. The rooms have always been clean, though perhaps a little outdated. I've had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, both sufficient. Traffic noise does start quite early but not really a problem as wasn't expecting a lie-in. Arranged a transfer to the airport through the hotel which was a good service, too. Overall a decent hotel, considering price and location. I book here every time I need to stay in Tunis (usually between 1 and 3 nights) and always been happy with my stay.
A welcome at reception, the rooms are clean and tidy though a few could be considered in need of an upgrade (doors to wardrobes in need of attention). The Restaurant offers a simple, not expensive, menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner though people are permitted to smoke there. It is convenient for any visitor coming from or needing to go to the AIRPORT.
I don't know if it's because it was Saturday and Sunday night but I was awake at 2:00 AM doing some reading and thought "wow, that's mighty inconsiderate of that motorist three floors below in the street blasting his sub-woofers. I refused to believe that the racket was coming from the hotel, but surprise surprise! In the lobby and behind a wood door I found the "club" where I was asked if I had a reservation. I was incredulous that they'd play the music LOUD enough for you to clearly hear it from the west side of the hotel and that far removed from the lobby on the third floor where I am staying but the thumping and "beats" continued as I write this (currently 1:42 AM. So, as I said... decent enough place if you're a night owl like me but not if loud music bothers your sleep or study. The Bar & Club: I went downstairs to check out the bar as it the music kept on thumping as ever. Upon entering the reasonably appointed bar, I was suspiciously looked up & down by the likely Ex-Mukhabarat goonda/bouncer/fixer that seemed to be in charge. After inquiring about the price of beer he asked if I had a reservation. "A table reservation?" I asked.... "you mean a room?" After informing me that it was 6 LD for a 30 CL (Standard hotel bar price) I inquired about the draft beer and was informed that it was out. Fair enough, I thought I'll on my merry way, no harm done to these barmen for asking a couple of questions. Later I went back down having decided to treat myself to some good ol' malted barely but was informed by Mr. Heavy that the bar was closed despite the continuing thumping of the music and the laughing and merrymaking of the patrons upstairs. NOTE: It was not a private party and he'd let me go up there to check it the first time only 20 minutes before. Now, perhaps it was after last call? Perhaps he meant the "bar" was closed but the club bar upstairs (which is actually above the bar) was open? I can't be sure. Dark thoughts began to well up inside, memories of high school slowly pushing out any logic or reason. Was my dress not up to code? Did he peg me as a penny pincher who wasn't worth the trouble? Did he think I'd harass the working girls? I can't be sure. Noise Level: I checked "Average" for "how loud was this hotel?" as it is general peaceful during the day. Also, I think the club downstairs might just be a weekend thing. I am hoping there won't be any surprises during check out. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
