This is a very good Hotel that lives up to its 5 Star rating. The Staff were superb and nothing was to much trouble. The hotel also has some very good resturants on site. I have been a regular visitor to Tunis over the last three years, and this is the best hotel that I have stayed in. Recommended for... More

This is a hotel I often stay at when visiting Tunisia and not staying with family. The location is great being close to La Marsa/Carthage/Tunis etc and if you're willing to drive/book transport you can visit Nabuel/Tazarka and other towns along the coast. The staff are polite and always willing to help. The rooms are clean and cool with facilities.... More

Overall the treatments were average. However, I was shocked that the hammam was in fact for both men and women and that they permitted men to enter while women were completely naked and having mud treatments. Also, the massages were just light oil rubbing exercises. We did not stay at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the rooms. The... More

An excellent hotel that has obviously learned from other countries how to treat guests, from the initial reception giving cold towels and a welcome drink to first class service from all its staff All the restaurants served excellent food from the breakfast though lunch to dinner Fully recommended for both tourists and business visits

Excellent hotel by all means. Rooms are spacious and clean. Housekeeping service is excellent. Food is also very good (although the choice is somehow limited). Internet is very fast. Definitely to be recommended

I used to stay in downtown hotels which are very average. If you are staying in Tunis, then this is the best hotel. Excellent service which you will not find anywhere in Tunisia. Professional receptionist (Naoufal). Good facilities with bar on the beach. Free and working wifi. Only comment I have is that hotel could need some renovating/upgrade (upgrade in... More

Enjoyed the stay at the Residence ... It is a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the City, but it was a great and enjoyable stay. The rooms were a wee old but overall the whole stay was satisfactory. Breakfast was one of the best features at the hotel.... the swimming pool and spa were excellent too.

The Residence is one of those hotels that look great on photos but in real, a tad old and sparse. But that said, what made up for it was it's excellent service - the ever so obliging staffs and for me the most important of all, the food. From the Mediterranean buffet at Oliver that is simply out of this... More
