Booked through online agency so was cheaper than walk in rate, even then was a bit expensive for what was on offer. The gardens, lobby and public spaces are immaculate and impressive, the rooms were ok, but run down and not particularly clean. We found rubbish in corners and the bath tub, whilst wiped over with disinfectant, had a ring... More

The Phebus hotel looks impressive on the outside. The lobby and the bar are fine but the rooms are old and need a big maintenance (running toilets, noisy, terrace door not closing). We stayed there twice and the first time we had a renovated wing which was a little better but the second time was horrible. The breakfast was ok,... More

Badly in need of renovations, very far from anything, no wifi in the rooms, world cup matches only playing in the bar at the lobby, air conditioning not working, meals quite good but unreasonably expensive, any spa treatment must be booked 24 hours in advance, and on top of that there was a foreseen water cut in my room two...

On the last day when we tried to pay the antiquated card machine refused all three of our cards. This meant my wife had to take a taxi to get money while I was held hostage, we were delayed for two hours MAKING US MISS OUR PLANE. The manager obviously had a problem dealing wit customers. His English got better... More

Booked this hotel when I saw it was a 4 star I assumed it would be comfortable if nothing else. The room was disgusting with torn carpets. The hot water didn't work but they sent someone to rectify it. The heater was noisy. The curtains had rips in them and the room was filthy in general. The food was anything... More

This hotel is located 15 minutes trip by public bus (0.400Dinars one way, once an hour) or 7 min drive by taxi (5 Dinars one way) from La Marsa. Hotel is in the middle of nowhere and is intended for couples who love to stay in a very quite place. Horse/Camel riding attraction is very close to the hotel. Food... More

The Phebus reminds you of 'what could be'. Traces of good quality can be found all over the hotel, but don't expect 4*. Set your expectations at low 3* to be exact. We arrived late in the evening and found a rather friendly fellow at the desk. The carpet in the hallways need replacing and the smell of cigarette smoke... More

I stayed here as part of a surgical package and didn't like my initial room but when I asked for a better view they were very very pleasant and went out of the way to ensure my stay was very nice.
