The hotel El Faracha offers cheap, comfortable bed and breakfast. It is situated near to the centre of sousse, and approximately 200yds from the sea front. The rooms consist of a double bed, (single room as well) TV, Fridge, air conditioning, and a built in wardrobe with full length mirrors, the bathroom has a shower, sink, and toilet. There is a lift to all floors. The lighting along the hallways, to your room, has timer switches, gives you about three minutes to get to your room. Breakfast consists of, pot of coffee, or tea, 1 pot of milk, some bread, a croissant, fig or apple spread, a yogurt, or boiled egg, and margarine. The down sides to this hotel are, the noise, there are a lot of children who play out till all hours along the same street as the hotel, there is a cockrel that starts crowing around 3.30am and keeps going till 6.30am, it is also situated on a dead end street, which is very dirty, with a lot of litter on the pavements, there is also building work going on at the end of the street. The view from the room is not that great, just a load of houses, with flaking paintwork, the rubbish bins are placed at the end of the road and are emptied around 10.30pm, In the month I stayed in sousse I found it to be a very dirty city, people are not using the litter bins and are just throwing there waste on the beach or leaving it on the road and pavement, sousse is not the best place to be as there is a big gay community in sousse and they all converge on the sea front, so if you are a single male you will be approached by a Tunisian male and asked if you want business, the hotel itself scores a 4/10 Sousse itself scores 1/10 - price per night / £10 / 30DNT There are no british tourists in this hotel, French, german, and Libyan, plus some Tunisian, the Tunisian people have told me that they do not want the tourists to return to Tunisia, as they are the cause of the problem, without them the attacks would not have happened, I will be in Tunisia for the next year and I will be visiting several hotels, my reviews are honest and down to earth, and I will tell it exactly as it is.

So my wife and I were understandably skeptical upon reading the reviews from a year or two ago... It's unclear when the place got a facelift, but it was a great one. Our room is actually two rooms, a comfortable living room and nice bedroom. Two issues marred an otherwise excellent hotel stay: ~ We visited in mid-April, when the lows reached the mid-teens. The two heaters in the room didn't turn on, which meant the room got cold. After inquiring, we found a small portable heater in our room. ~ Noise is an issue after dark. At least one night featured the audio stylings of what sounded like Arabic techno until after 1am. Being an Muslim country means you'll also be hearing the various calls to prayer through the day. A number of restaurants (including Tunisia's version of fast food), a couple of supermarkets, and plenty of other hotels are around along with the nearby beach. You're walking distance from both of Sousse's train stations (one connecting you to Tunis, and one connecting you to Monastir and Mahdia). I'd happily stay here again.

The El Faracha is a clean, less expensive option for travelers looking to stay in Sousse Corniche, the neighborhood by the beach. It's located on a dead-end side street just two blocks from the sea. My room was small and had a balcony. Doors and windows all locked. I stayed there for three weeks and regularly left electronic equipment in my room; it was not disturbed. In that time I saw one large cockroach in my room and noted that the staff seems to clean around (but not under) the furniture. The staff was friendly but not particularly helpful when it came to restaurant recommendations and locations, directions, and basic city geography. The WiFi worked fine, but was only available in the lobby and breakfast room. The breakfasts were OK, but the same every day. This area of Sousse Corniche is distinguished by a number of empty buildings, run-down shops, and garbage in the streets. I never feared for my safety, but it was a rather ugly, depressing environment. Given prevailing room rates in Sousse Corniche, the El Faracha offers decent value for the money. However, if I had to stay in a Sousse hotel again for any length of time, I'd try elsewhere.
