Stayed for my sisters wedding. Reception helpful, all staff I encountered were nice. It's not a usual holiday place to stay I was a bit apprehensive but it was for one night and enjoyable. Surprised at the diverse people there were even some other British staying along with French, Japanese. I had a good experience staying at gafsa palace. Recommended.

This place looked like they were expecting some sort of attack, with steel doors at the front of the hotel and bars around the entrance doors. i would rate it as a 3 star. We were however looked after well while we were there, the rooms were large and very clean, and the food was of a good quality.

Gafsa is usually avoided as an overnight stop for anyone in Tunisia unless they truly have a reason to be in Gafsa. Gafsa...is not a destination for destination sake! We had to be there for a night for business reasons and booked the "5 star" Gafsa Palace. First, not star in Tunisia is deserving of star based on international standards,... More
