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

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

My wife and I have just returned from our holiday in Tunisia. We used the Hotel El Faracha in Sousse as a base for our backpacking trip around the south of Tunisia. We stayed in rooms 404 for two nights at the beginning of the week and room 505 at the end of the week. While room 404 was 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

I was on business and did not want to stay in one of the many large beachfront hotels that cater to package group tourists. Also I didn't want to stay out of the way in Port Kantouri which is where so many of the supposedly "Sousse" hotels are really located. There's nothing authentic Tunisian about that area and I wanted... More

For sure a veey good hotel with good quality price ratio. New rooms and equiPment close to a very nice beach. Nice and welcoming staff. Good breakfast. I recommend for few days or the weekend. Building is way more modern than the rest of the hotels in sousse.
