My wife and I had our 1st night together in in a mindblowing room at "The residence Gammart" I have to say that everything exceeded my expectations and that I never thought i was gonna be impressed by anything that is related to hospitality back home (Tunisia). The crew members were beyond welcoming, professional and well-trained. Food was tasty, an... More

Great staff and amazing rooms. Property location was great aside the ocean. Views from the rooms were all beautiful. I imagine in the summer this place would be even better! Meals were all extremely good, too!

I was in Tunis for three weeks for work and stayed at The Residence almost the entire time. It's a really lovely hotel, with a stunningly beautiful entry and a beautiful location right on the beach. The rooms are also beautiful, if just slightly worn around the edges. But there is still plenty of attention to detail and the bathrooms... More

If you've been to Tunis, met Tunisia people, tried local markets and restaurants already, than the Residence is a beautiful and upscale getaway. Prices are high but service is incredible. The balcony of our room with room service wine was an ideal setting to watch the sunset. There's beach access and the hotel will happily arrange drivers to ensure you... More

Hi Let me first say something, the luxury tourism in Tunisia (especially luxury service) is extremely rare. To my knowledge, it resumes to residence Hotel and the newly opened Movenpick. I am a regular customer of Residence since 2013, at first glance the welcome is perfect, the service is perfect, next time a little bit less, and the third time... More

Very nice hotel. Water view is the best feature along with the outdoor swimming pool. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Service can be better, especially early morning. Breakfast can be chore if too early, staff needs some time to wake up and get rolling.

I stayed at the Residence primarily for business, with my wife joining me for the last week. While I was at the hotel, pretty much every VIP who came to Tunisia (former French President, head of the IMF, senior U.S. officials) stayed at The Residence. That tells you something. The hotel is excellent, with a huge and inviting pool, easy... More
