If you don't mind paying a little extra money, I 'd go for riad Mabrouka. Its location is ideal : just within walking distance from Jemaa Elfna square. If you should decide to stay out at night a taxi can drop you just off the street from your riad

Meriem is also quite n ice but I'd worry about finding my way around

need further help feel free to ask

cheers

You can find it after a few attempts. But the point is taxis can't drive up there. If you're the adventurouis type, go for it

cheers

ok - so if I'm not bothered about getting lost then which would reccomend - i want a nice place to stay that will do nice food and serve me a beer.

How far really is riad meriem from the main square - i've been told anything between 1 minute and 15 - is the area its in dodgy?

thanks for your help

it's inside the medina not far Ben Youssef mosque. 5 or ten minutes can be quite deceptive becuase it will depend on whether the medina is empty or crowded. But you'll like the ambience of the old town so I guess just go for it

cheers
