This hotel used to be much better. My last stay was somehow terrible. The rooms were not very clean. I had issues with internet and the staff is surely less friendly compared to couple of years ago. Serious concerns about a hotel managed by an international chain

I stayed here for one night as a group of 7. The exterior of the hotel is pretty impressive, and sticks out like a sore thumb compared to the other buildings around the area. Once inside it was a slightly different story though. My room, bathroom, the reception, restaurant, bar, communal areas and gardens were all a bit of a... More

I had stayed in the other Golden Tulip which was good but far from downtown. This branch has the same standards and is central. The price is really competitive and the hotel is nice. Breakfast and WiFi included in the cost of the room. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. I recommend this hotel. Only problem, the open-air swimming pool... More

I think I was in one of the not-full-updated rooms, but it was still quite roomy and perfectly clean. As with all of Tunis, the concept of non-smoking areas is a bit fuzzier than you might be used to. The breakfast options were great, if a bit chaotic at times, and the Lebanese food at the Afandi restaurant in the... More

The hotel is OK situated near the centre of Tunis. My room could need a renovation but was still OK. For Tunisian standards the cleanliness was very good but not Western standard. Good breakfast. Restaurant Peppino is not to be recommended.

The valutation given is compared to all the restaurant of the world; if compared to tunisian restaurant, I'll give 5/5 points. Usually I never eat in Italian Restaurants outside my country, but I'd invited by a camarade of the army, so I'd accepted with gladeness. The tortellini with mushroom decorated with a fried spaghetti has been a very good experience,... More
