“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Good points about this hotel: clean, cleaning staff were friendly, nice spacious rooms and our balcony was incredible because it was at the back of the building and very quiet and hot during the day as the sun was continuously on it. The front of the hotel is very noisy and catches the breezes.
Not overly keen on the food but for £3.00 per night I wasn't expecting much.
Was really impressed with the telly as they had two really good film channels in English.
Towels and sheets changed every day.
Nice and quiet over the Christmas period 2012.
Tracy Ann

Room Tip: Make sure you are at the back of the hotel and high up is lovely views.

We booked 4 days in this hotel to spend new year's eve in Sousse. We did not expect much because the price was so incredibly low, $15 per night, for two, with breakfast! We were pleasantly surprised!

The hotel is very well located, close enought to the beach (less than 1 km), walking distance to the downtown medina (less than 3 km), and also close to a few shopping centers, (maybe 4 km or so). It is also surrounded by cute little restaurants, cafés, pubs and boutiques.

The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but clean, safe and has all the basics. The staff is friendly, the rooms are very warm, have tv and bath (I've seen worse in this city) and though it is on a busy boulevard, we heard no noise with the balcony windows closed, and had no problem sleeping. The breakfast was buffet style, simple but sufficient - coffee, tea, croissants, ham, cheese, yogourt and hard boiled eggs. The breafast room is on the 5th floor, and has a view on part of the city.

The hotel has wifi internet, I even had it in my room, though it is better in the lobby.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel and loved visiting the city of Sousse and nearby Monastir. Well worth the money, even if we had paid double.

First of all, as many reviews have suggested, this is not a five-star hotel and one should not expect five-star amenities. That's why my review rating is only average. Having said that, however, you pay for what you get. If you want to hang around the hotel mixing with the rest of the tourists, lounging by the pool, and expecting a huge breakfast served to you by wait-staff wearing spotless uniforms--you need to find another hotel. If, however, you want to explore Sousse and nearby areas, and want to spend some time at the beach, then you should just use this hotel as a sleeping place. And for that, it is well worth the price. The staff is friendly and helpful but you have to ask for the help; they won't volunteer it. Also, if they are giving you directions or something--don't interrupt them; they don't like it. I mis-heard a sentence when the hotel clerk was speaking and I started to ask for clarification and he said, "Let me finish." The hotel lighting is not very bright (but you don't need bright when it is so sunny and if you are just mainly going to sleep there); some of the towels are a little frayed (but clean); some of the paint is peeling in the hallways. But, again, do you want to pay just to stay in a hotel, or do you want to use the hotel as a home base while you get out and explore the city and country? The maids are friendly and will make up your room nicely and quickly, especially if you leave them a pair of pantyhose or some chewing gum (or both).
The beach is only about 400 meters away and the hotel has its own area with thatched umbrellas and sun chairs. After a while, some guy will come around asking for 3 dinar payment (about 1.5 Euros) for the whole day. After a few days of regular visits, the guy reduced the price to 2 dinar. The hotel is not far from the Medina and city center. You can walk it in about 20 minutes and therefore get the atmosphere (as well as all the touts who can smell tourists from a mile away), or you can take a taxi (you shouldn't pay any more than 2-3 dinar) or one of the little trackless "trains" that run regularly and stop at all the hotels (about 3 dinar). The hotel does not have internet (it might have wireless--I don't know), but why would you want to spend your time on the internet when you have these beautiful beaches nearby?
Overall, in spite of my average ranking, I was pleased there.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the front with a balcony; however, it does tend to be a little noisy at night w...

We stayed in this hotel and June and really enjoyed it! I dont understand why this hotel has bad reviews, I can only assume they did not know what to expect from a value hotel. The rooms were cleaned daily and bed linens/towels changed. The location is close to the beach, medina and transport links. The food was as you would expect at the price, basic but plentiful. Cold European breakfast, but who would want a hot one! and meals consisting of salad and chips with two 'mains' that changed each night and ice cream after. The staff were friendly. Good exchange rate at the hotel. i have no idea what one person means with regards to it being like a brothel, there was nothing like this at all. If you want to spend all your time in your hotel then perhaps this hotel is not for you but if you want to go explore tunisia (why else would you be ther) this is the perfect base. I would recommend the capital sights trip and el jem half day trip with thomas cook! I wouldnt let the reviews put you off, this hotel is very good value for money!!

Lots of very mixed reviews.
in a nutshell. Rooms a little dated, BUT CLEAN!
Shower and bath..........powerful shower jet and limitless hot water.
Bed (2 singles) but large and pushed together. Bed comfortable, linen clean.
TV had English speaking news and 4 movie channels in English, with Arabic subtitles.
Balcony, small, but comfy.
Aircon.perfect 15 degrees (for me), never had to alter. No noise from it.
Corridors echo...so inconsiderable neighbours banging their doors can wake you, but not much of a problem.
Had B&B only. Coffee ok. boiled eggs, french bread, yogurt, some juices...not very inspiring and dining table-clothes looked like they were not wiped from one month to the next, let alone between servings.
Pizza resturant attached to hotel is good value for money. Pizza aint great, but the lasange is amazing and there's a little something on the menu for even the pickiest of diners, and prices are good! e.g Lasange portion, (decent size) with fries, french bread n butter and a sprite was 8 dinar (around £3.33).
Bar is opened until late. Again, cheap, but not great alcohol variety.
Sauna, Jacuzzi, Gym, Massage..all available, 9.3 til 10pm...reasonable prices, professional service.
Note...guests...who make a new friend and wish to 'have a drink in their room' with that new friend, will be required to book a seperate room for this friend, at a cost of 50 Dinar. (£20)! Please note, there are NO easy alternatives to this arrangement..anywhere in Sousse! This arrangement is applicable, regardless of your gender or the gender of your guest, who must be at least 18 and have ID for check-in.

Staff are nice, I felt safe, lots of opportunities to make new friends with tourists and locals alike.

I will return...............very very cheap via travelrepublic.

Room Tip: 5th floor rooms have, apparently, been the first rooms to benefit from refurbishment!

Visited in June. In principle, not bad and not expensive BUT (there always)) for people with a good appetite, nothing what to do here! Free pizza from the hotel BUT - its lousy! Beer - is expensive but the taste is the same as the pizza! Strange staff: how in police - a good cop - bad cop. Resepshen changing shifts, and your mood changes with them. The main entertainment, communication with the local contingent)) its fun but dangerous for the girls (do not let you walk around alone by the hotel :)) In Russian nobody do not speak unless you know English, learn Arabic. But in general they are fine fellows: they speak in all languages ​​(this is not our Euro 2012), at all ..... other than Russian. Although there are a couple of people found out where is the word "GOOD -in russian")) and this is GOOD! I advise you not to be nervous) a little more irony and humor! I almost forgot, just take out the prices, money and the local taxi driver (taxi is the most important, a chance to be without money, there is a "miracle" buttons on the counter, :)), :)) I know). In general, Sousse - is a paradise! A wonderful place. Try to taste of Sousse - you will not regret! I promise!

Room Tip: All room in good, spacious and with a good view
