We so enjoyed our stay in this charming little hotel built in the traditional Tunisian style. We had a really beautiful room with fine architectural features. The hotel is very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this beautiful, traditional hotel in Sidi Bou Said - a place that should not be missed.

My husband and I spent the first 3 nights of our 2 week trip round Tunisia at the Dar Said, all organised in advance through a tour operator in the UK. I did not look at the reviews on Trip Advisor before planning our holiday for the second half of October this year because I had done so in 2010.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Found the grounds nice and well maintained and desk staff was helpful and English speaking although they always seemed really tired. Breakfast was only so so, nothing special. As for the rooms: the standard room at the asking price is not worth it. But if they are in bargaining mood it could be worth it.... More

Just back from a week staying at Dar Said. Lovely hotel, lovely views, rooms clean, maids friendly. What a trick they are missing, no brochures of Tunis or attractions, no interest in guests, no suggestions of what to see. Tunisia is desperate for tourists, this attitude is not helping. Transfer from airport to hotel a rip off. Using a metered... More

The hotel is not fully booked on the day we arrived. So It is nice from the hotel staff to offer us the freedom to choose the room we like. We chose a sea view room, which is nice overlooking the sea. The view is partially blocked by the houses closer to the sea, but still attractive. The room is... More

Whilst this hotel has a lovely location, the view is partly blocked by more recent development and staying there is ruined by awful customer service. On arrival we had to wait 30 minutes before our room was ready. On departure we were told very aggressively that we had not paid when we had email confirmation that we had. On presenting... More

The Dar Said in Sidi Bou Said was the first of the group of historic property, boutique hotels to have opened in Tunisia in the last decade or so. The setting perched on a hill in the picturesque Sidi Bou Said makes it a wonderful place to stay. Rooms are each slightly different due to the old architecture, the Andalusian... More

Dar Said’s location is unrivalled, and the views stunning, but unfortunately the service does not live up to what should be one of Tunisia’s best boutique hotels. I stayed here for night before, and the night of my wedding, and I was apparently given the best suite in the hotel. What is unfortunate about Dar Said is that the bathrooms... More

Dar Said is very lucky it has no competition. It enjoys a stunning location but it is understaffed and poorly maintained and, despite being listed in SLH (small luxury hotels) it is not in the least bit luxurious. SLH is mainly a marketing organisation to which you pay an annual membership fee and whilst it purports to monitor its members... More

It's a nice hotel full of charm and character. The hotel has a nice faded grandeur and a good location from which to mix with the locals. Better value meals, outside of the hotel, are to be found nearer the railway station. Although I enjoyed staying here I thought it was a bit expensive for what you get.
