The hotel has a presence. It has been designed to represent a castle with mytical fittings and portraits. It fitted out with most marble and it's right on the beach. The rooms are huge and a bathroom fit for a queen. The hotel staff very helpful and friendly. It still represents the Arabian hospitality. I loved staying here however short... More

The lobby has a grand feeling to it with high ceilings. The hotel generally has a historical elegance to it which I prefer to the new glass and posh hotels. The room was practical with a very large classy bathroom. The television was a bit small and outdated. The room mini fridge was not working, i.e. it was warm, despite... More

Having never been to Tunis before, I wasn't sure what to expect from the accommodations there, but the Residence put my mind at ease as soon as I entered the spacious lobby and was greeted by the friendly staff. The hotel sits on expansive well-kept grounds with a short semi-private beach access where you may find some camels relaxing in... More

We so needed a week off in a peaceful hotel with high standards and The Residence certainly came up trumps. Sometimes the service was a little inconsistent - some day towels by the pool and water provided - others we had to ask and on one occasion even phone reception from my mobile from the pool as they had forgotten...

Impressive building, nice private beach and good SPA facilities. The restaurant offers are a bit limited as the Tunisian restaurant is only open on weekends. This leaves you with the Chinese or the International restaurant. Unfortunately, the Chinese always seems to 'have run out' of certain dishes (even if you come in right when they open). The rooms are spacious,... More

This is a lovely hotel. In fact it is beautiful. The rooms were very clean, the bathrooms were immaculate, and the pool was fabulous. The only negative is that the food at the restaurant was simply ok. I'm not sure if it was Tunisia and the food there is blah. So I might be skewed, or out of touch as... More
