Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Formerly residence of the Grand Mufti of the Kingdom of Tunisia, it was called the Regency of Tunis, the palace dating from the 18th century is beautifully situated in the heart of the oldest part of the medina of Tunis. The restoration lasted nearly seven years respecting the most demanding rules in decor materials, marble, tiles and antique woodwork without integrating any recent or modern tile into this architectural ensemble. The palace houses a collection of historic IZNIK tiles,scarce in the world that represents one of the artistic elements and the most prestigious restoration elements of Tunis. The ecological hotel and excellence project came very quickly to lean on the renovation project with a set of 17 suites, a traditional restaurant, a tea house, a spa and a high-quality Hammam.

Palais Bayram is a truly unique property. But one that offers an extremely comfortable place to stay. The rooms have all the amenities you'd expect from a high end hotel and the medina is located just around the corner. The staff is unfailingly polite and eager to please. They go out of their way to make sure you're well taken care of. I even booked two excursions with the front desk: One to the Roman Amphitheater in El Jem and one to Carthage right near central Tunis. Both trips were exceptional. The service in the hotel's restaurant was also impeccable. The food quality was outstanding and there was a lot of it. Tunis actually has a lot to offer and deserves to see more tourists. This is definitely a good place to stay and provided everything that I was looking for.

What a delight to stay in this hotel. It is a wonderfully resorted villa. We upgraded to a historic room, our friends did too, but upon arrival, they bumped them up again to the Princess Lella room. We also used the hamman and it was great. The restaurant fixed a special birthday cake for me..... very nice surprise. Since we were there a short time, the hotel arranged a guide to take us to the sites....made the trip easy.

This is a beautiful well restored building with amazing tilework and huge, traditional bedrooms. The breakfast was delicious, all served fresh to your table and including everything you could want (choice of omelettes, plus croissants, Tunisian bread, cheeses, honey, coffee, juice etc). It was also very quiet at night so great for a good night’s sleep. The only downside for us was that it is located right in the medina, and we couldn’t find anywhere to eat nearby so ended up going into the new town – about 20 mins walk away. This was fine when walking out during daylight, but we really didn’t feel comfortable walking back to the hotel after – either through the medina (which was very poorly lit, and very empty) or round the outside (which was very seedy, covered in litter). This would have been ok but it was also really hard to get a taxi – Tunis seemed not to have enough taxis for the demand, and even when one did rarely stop, they sometimes refused to take us. On our second night we were walking around for about 30 mins trying to get a taxi, which was quite stressful. I think this could be easily dealt with if the hotel staff just gave you a map on arrival, and explained the best route to walk back to the hotel/pointed out any areas to avoid, or even offer a pickup service.

I recently spent a day at this hotel and although we did not spend the night due to a late evening flight my group and I had rooms for the entire day. Every room/suite had different decor and one can tell that the owner made every effort to retain the original structure. The walk to the hotel is only about 5 minutes on a well-travelled street within the Medina. If you are looking to stay in the Medina then this is your place.

We were a group in private tour in Tunis the Medina, we stay at Payram hotel's restaurant for lunch. That day,the restaurant serve a traditional Tunisian food. I enjoyed this food in spite of my wife didn't! The building was romantic, historical and spacious. It was the palace of Mufti in 18th century.The staff was nice, helpful and polite.We taste Assidat Zgougou as dessert, it is a Tunisian dessert often prepared to celebrate the Mūled. I highly recommend this restaurant.
