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...

The room is shappy, 2 out of 3 light switch is out of services, 1 out of 3 light fitting is not working. Our room is facing the road and a contrunstion site, it is very noisy even at mid-night. However, the staff are very helpful and provide all information. The manager (or the boss) help us to arrange tour... More
