“So good we came back for our last night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2011

We began our trip in Tunisia at this hotel. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of the Medina. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Our triple ensuite room was really spacious and overlooked the peaceful courtyard. The very reasonable price included breakfast (hot drink and crusty roll with jam) served with a smile.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel so much we reserved the same room for our return from Sousse.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2011

An excellent location a few steps from the medina and the central Avenue Habib Bourguiba. Cost/value is excellent. I usually stay in a more upscale business hotel when I'm in Tunis, and the only things the Hotel de France doesn't give you that the one at more than twice the price does is a bathtub (though there's a shower) and television. Staff is very friendly and cooperative. But rooms vary, so try to get one with a small balcony that overlooks the charming central courtyard. Breakfast is Continental and adequate. Very good coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for one that overlooks the courtyard.

We stayed here for 4 nights, arriving on the second day of Eid al-Adha and not having booked anything. The hotel was extremely accommodating, providing us with food and water at a low cost as all the supermarkets were closed. A room was made ready for us immediately, and was spotless. Breakfast was not included (for a few extra dinars it could be eaten in the dining room downstairs), but this wasn't a problem as the hotel is located right next to a fantastic restaurant and also less than 100 metres from the Medina. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were fine, shower was quite good and toilets were European-style. One word of warning, if your room has a little balcony over the courtyard, keep the windows closed as the trees tend to attract mosquitos which are annoying at 3am! There is a computer with internet in the lobby, which can be used for a very low fee. Upon departure, the friendly staff were happy to store bags after check-out til the evening, and even posted postcards for us. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend and stay again!
