Lovely surprize. Clean and comfortable rooms, air-conditioning and a view to envy. Croissant, gem, yoghurt and coffee for breakfast was delicious and filling. Wi-fi only close to reception. I enjoyed my two night stay there and will book there again next time.

I booked a room here for my wife and I to relax in after taking the eight hour train trip from Tunis. The Lonely Planet recommend it and it even has the Trip Adviser stickers on the door. It's now nearly 11pm and we still have neither hot water or Air Conditioning. What we do have, is a procession of... More

We stayed three nights at el Arich and thought it was excellent value at 45 dinar for a spacious double room in the new building, Room 26, on the first floor. Everything was nice and new, and very clean. The decor was pleasing with high gloss floor tiles, attractive new duvet and quality curtains. Double glazed windows and cooling floor... More

While we live in Sousse for a few months we wanted to visit also the south of Tunisia. We tried to book a few hotels in Tozeur but or they didn't react on our mails or they on line booking didn't work. Of the Residence El Arich we got an answer by mail immediate. So we arranged our booking for... More

The hotel is generally good value. We had a very nice room on the third floor overlooking the palm trees. It is worth the 40 dinar per night. They could add value by getting rid of the dirty carpets in the rooms. Get nice ones and hang them on the wall. No reason to have carpets on the floor. They... More

We arrived at Residence El Arich a day earlier than we had booked, but this was no problem. There were obviously not many guests, as we were given a number of keys to see which room we wanted. The last one, on the second floor, was by far the best, almost a suite, with a little hallway and separate doors... More

The hotel is situated in Tozeur between the old town and the small tourist zone. It was recommended in Lonely Planet so I’d made a reservation by email. If I’d checked the room first I probably wouldn’t have taken it. It was well worn, with a dirty old rug that looked like it needed a good beating. One of the... More

Even though it is closer to zone touristique, it is still part of the old town. It is within the walking distance to many local restaurants & the palmeraie. Rooms are very new & clean. However they are in the middle of construction expansion on the rear side. Expect repercussions. Nice part is the breakfast on the terrace. Watch out... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a big smile by Mohammed V, the manager. With ease, he organised 2 tours for us (a half day trip and an overnight trip, both with Ali Saadi - www.alitouareg.onlc.fr - a wonderful guide), accommodated my (vegetarian) dietary needs, and whisked us upstairs to a clean and airy twin room (with bathroom) on the...
