Our one night there was pleasant enough, but we did have the tiniest room imaginable, and the bathroom was a postage stamp. We enjoyed the balcony for our early evening aperitif, but the price was higher than we needed to pay (244 dinar which was $120 at the time). The young man holding the fort was overwhelmed and not very... More

Stayed here for a week in October 2015. The house couldn't be lovelier - each room is different, carvings, mosaics, lovely tiles. Really a gem. But I found the staff unhelpful and unfriendly. It has a rigid way of doing things and will not depart - so, we asked every day for fruit for breakfast. Not possible. There is fruit... More

I liked a lot the hotel, it is an old-style house with extremely nice rooms and decorated with taste that I would recommend to anyone. So nice place, the service is a different story: slow, they forget to bring you things (including salt and napkins) when you ask for them. They are extremely friendly and useful but also inconstistent...the first... More

It's always a good sign when you wish you could stay longer. My review of the Dar El Medina is being written months after we stayed there last June 2014 - but my sentiments still hold true: the hotel is adorable and perfect for a stay in Tunis' old Medina. When we arrived, Ramadan was in full swing. Upon check-in,... More

Was excited to stay here, expecting an experience akin to the riads in Morocco. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, enough so to cancel our second stay and go elsewhere. The room was tiny; couldn’t even walk between the bed and the wall without stubbing my toes on either the wall or the bedframe. The bed was rock-hard, and the pillows... More

We stayed in a wonderful room up top and it was very nicely done. The breakfast was great also. Lots of bread as is the Tunisian way. It could have used a little more fruit. This place is a traditional house/ hotel in the Medina and you won't go wrong staying here. The location is great also.

We expected a lot from this hotel, after seeing its pictures from the web site and after reading some reviews. The result was sad, unpleasant and absolutely deceiving. The hotel in itself is a restored, lovely and not large old building with plenty of romantic and exotic touches. The cleaning however leaves much to be desired (a lovely old sitting... More

We spent the last two nights of our 12 days in Tunisia here. It's a beautified older house right smack in the medina, down the street from the Casbah, where there's the changing of the guard and other government buildings. We were in a top floor "junior suite" that had sweeping views of Tunis. The room was a bit odd;... More
