Tunisia Palace4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
what a wonderful interesting hotel. the hotel is old and creaky but just adds to the character of the building. the staff are wonderful and helpful. I ended up working quite late but they were still willing to knock up a dinner for me which was amazing! If i come back to Tunis for pleasure i will be sure to stay here
Small hotel cramped up in the busiest street of Tunis, yet it offers all comforts. Rooms are relatively clean. Breakfast buffet spread is not that great but has everything you need for a decent breakfast. Staff hardly speaks English but are courteous. It is so convenient as everything is at walking distance including the old market.Most importantly the floor rent was the best you could find in Tunis.
Tunisia Palace is very conveniently located in the center of Tunis within a short walking distance to the French Embassy and the famous Medina of Tunis where one can find a value merchandise. The hotel amenity is relatively quiet A/C, good breakfast, despite the busy traffic the rooms offer quietness. The floor carpet could be cleaner and only 1 tiny elevator for the size of the hotel is a weak point. In short, this hotel could be the best in the area.
My 1st visit to Tunisia was wonderful. The Tunisia Palace is an old Victorian gem...marble everywhere, 15 foot ceilings, large bathtub with very hot water, quiet AC for sleeping, elegant framed large photos of old Tunisia adorn the walls everywhere and there is a modern elevator. At the reception there is an attractive young woman named Karima who speaks English well and was very efficient and helpful . But All the staff....right down to the the maid were helpful and genuinely friendly...they made my stay a joy..Can't say enough good about the place. Well actually the wifi is a little slow but fine once you gett used to it.For a city hotel it is perfectly located right next to the old Medina on the main Boulevard. (200 yards from the skyksracper hotels that cost about 5 times more). The WiFi is a little slow..but it's OK once you get used to it. Taxis are outside the door and a ridiculously cheap train to Carthage is just minutes away. Seriously, it's a hotel you would expect to pay 200$ + anywhere else. For budget conscious or thrifty travelers it can't be beat. As for Tunisia...don't believe any of the crap you hear in the media...I feel 100 % safe and welcome. As French is the second language there, it helps to have a little ....but where ever I went...if you speak English gently, there is always some one who speaks enough to help you get what you want. Needless to say, everything is mind boggling cheap from tourist junk to authentic antiques ....and ditto for the food. I went to Tunisia with some mild apprehension which I realized after the 1st day was completely unfounded. And, as they had one mindless incident of terror a couple years ago, there are very few tourists...which is great if you want to avoid the normal summer time mess of loud you know whats.. From a different perspectve, I befriended a young Californian who is traveling with his 2 young children who is so excited about how warmly the kids are treated by the locals...he highly recommends it as great place for a family vacation. As I have traveled extensively in Muslim countries...I find that a certain level of respect, patience and kindness goes a long way in insuring your welcome...and Tunisia fits that mold perfectly.
Hotel is tried and a little rough around the edges, but this is more than made up by the excellent staff. I arrived in the early hours of the morning due to a delayed flight and was met by the night manager Slim who was excellence and checked me in quickly and with the minimum of fuss. The hotel is centrally located and very well priced so no real complaints as you get what you pay for. I would return.
Hotel needs renovation. Carpets, some doors, some sofas, some chairs, decoration all need to be changed. Service and staff is ok, building and furniture is not. Ideal for those who do not wish to do more than sleeping. Positive points : Free wifi, near all commodities : malls, metro, buses, church, medina, the mosquet, souks, markets, in the heart of Tunis.
I've been here six times since 2012, because the hotel is comfortable and the location great for Medina, restaurants and sitting to watch the world go by. The restaurant Le Dome is fine, but I don't like the wall size television. Housekeeping and reception are friendly.
Before I Book the room I checked 2 x things carefully through Boooking . com (A/C and WIFI) and both not working.. 1. A/C is not working, I complained to the reception and supervisor, but they didn't start. I had a baby with me and he was wet because it was hot climate at day time and if you open the windows lots of mosquitoes will enter the room. 2. Wifi is not reaching the room. 3. the mini fridge/bar is not cooling. baby food spoiled. 4. Toilet door lock is not working 5. the cold and hot water taps for the bath are opposite! 6. They don't give drinking water complimentary, so I have to buy. (First ever I see like this in a hotel). I traveled lots around the Arabic world, but this was the worse experience ever.
I stayed here for three nights and when I checked out they told me that the first credit card didn't go through and I gave the second card but then I found out that they also charged the first cards and the second card so I paid them double. I tried to contact them but they do not respond. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone
I really liked the building and the service, internet access, delicious breakfast, but no diner included which makes it a little bit expensive... Still a good and faithful hotel. As a personal experience,I forgot my charger there, then I got back thanks to the staff, they assisted me on the phone till a friend of mine came and took it
