I visited Tunis for a four day stay after 6 weeks on the road travelling through parts of Europe and North Africa. Based on Trip Advisor reviews I booked Hotel le Consul and this turned out to be a great hotel experience and a real haven for those four days. My room was spotlessly clean, comfortable, very quiet and a good size. The bathroom was well set out with wonderful shower with instant hot, hot water. The staff were all very friendly and responsive, particularly the Directeur, Monsieur Kefi. He was there most mornings to greet me for breakfast and welcome me back after my daily excursions. I felt there was nothing he would not be able to arrange if I needed it, very comforting for a female solo traveller.
Transfers to and from the hotel went as planned and M. Kefi was even able to arrange drivers for day tours to Sid Bu Said, Carthage, the Bardo museum, Dougga and the Tunis Medina. The drivers were very courteous and the prices extremely reasonable. I experienced no hassles at all in Tunis apart from the usual hard sell from vendors in the Medina which is common in all medinas.
There is free wifi in the restaurant and reception area and free wired Internet in the room.
The restaurant was excellent. All meals were of a high standard with fresh, homemade ingredients, mostly French style although some lovely local dishes too and indeed much better than a certain 5 star restaurant in Luxor Egypt which I'll be reviewing shortly. Even the wine was good. Breakfast was also good but a little more variety in the hot dishes over the four days would have been appreciated although what was provided was delicious.
Overall I was very impressed with the room, service, food and value and would definitely return.
