Back to Borj Dhiafa after 18 months almost. Still retains the same qualities. Comfortable and large room, clean. Retains an old world charm. It is a bit away from the center of town (at least I think it is!). Has it's pro's and con's. It is easy for me to reach my office avoiding traffic snarls. We had free wi-fi... More

Not only are the rooms great, big airy and spacious, the shower is one of the best l have used in Tunisia! We only stayed for one... More

I stayed at the Borj during a business trip to Sfax. Having stayed in some real dumps in Africa, I'm always a bit hesitatant. But, this large hotel was very pleasant. It's worth mentioning the large indoor pool; guarded entrance and secure car park, spa (which I didn't visit) and smart courtyard surrounded with occasional chairs and waiter service. Breakfast...

The place is okay. I stayed there for a couple of days this week. The place has a more of a big house rather than a big hotel atmosphere. Language was my big issue,as I could not speak French or Arabic,especially in the restaurant! One night they were moving furniture in the middle of night and I could not complain... More

Classy hotel, big rooms, nice decor. Wi-fi is fast.The restaurant is fantastic but only for dinner. It's hard to believe that breaksfast and dinner come from the same kitchen because the breakfast offerings are 3 star at best.

During a Tunisian wedding, my seven months old son, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this jewel for four nights. We had an excellent and spacious room with a balcony, even got a "king size" baby bed for our son. :-) This part of Tunisia is especially well known for its seafood cuisine, and this hotel... More

The Borj Dhiafa it's one of the best hotel's in Tunisia and it is by far the one the best quality/price relation. Don't get me wrong, but there's a lot to be done in Tunisia in several areas, tourism being just one of them. The Borj Dhiafa is the exception. It's a beautifull hotel, with excellent rooms, good decor, good... More

The hotel looks as some kind of Arabic palace, a bit bulky with moucharabiehs and crenels. It is located at +/- 3 kms from the center of Sfax slightly in recess of a busy road which does not affect the quietness of the rooms. An extension is being built to double its capacity and increase business facilities. It has all... More
