So my wife and I were understandably skeptical upon reading the reviews from a year or two ago... It's unclear when the place got a facelift, but it was a great one. Our room is actually two rooms, a comfortable living room and nice bedroom. Two issues marred an otherwise excellent hotel stay: ~ We visited in mid-April, when the... More

The El Faracha is a clean, less expensive option for travelers looking to stay in Sousse Corniche, the neighborhood by the beach. It's located on a dead-end side street just two blocks from the sea. My room was small and had a balcony. Doors and windows all locked. I stayed there for three weeks and regularly left electronic equipment in... More

I advice everyone NOT to book Hotel El Faracha even if you have to sleep on the street. The staff is obsoletely unhelpful, The hotel staff's constantly spying on you, The hotel is extremely noisy I mean you cannot sleep. Around the hotel is so much dirty that you cannot pass without vomiting, Breakfast is 100% worst then no food.... More

A small 2 star hotel tucked away a couple of minutes walk from beach. If you are expecting anything that a 2 star would not provide, you will be disappointed, this is definitely a 2 star hotel. Its basic, but worth the money for Sousse. Generally quite clean, rooms nice and big with high ceilings, fridge, large windows and a... More

Were staying at El Hanna Beach but closed down half way through our stay, got chucked out, found this hotel close to beach and town. Cheap, basic breakfast but clean a little hotel noise. I would stay here again if looking for a cheap place no frills to stay.

This hotel is centrally located just behind the Corniche. 2 minutes to the sea. Rooms are spacious & comfortable with TV, fridge & A/C. One of the quieter hotels in Sousse. Breakfast is simple but fine. Rooms 25 Dinar = £10
