We spent a night here at the end of our trip to Tunisia. It's located right next to the medina and right next to the market. Easy to find and in walking distance to the train station.
The hotel was pretty clean (undergoing renovations currently, Aug 2011) and the price was very reasonable (~€30/night for 2). No WiFi, but there's a computer in the lobby that you can use, but I think it probably costs a nominal fee.
Breakfast was minimal (bread with butter & jam, good real coffee) but okay. There's a little shop next door to buy things to eat, so no problem if arriving late/early. No soap or shampoo in the bathroom! So bring your own or buy it next door. Rooms are air conditioned, so decently comfortable even in summer. There's an inner courtyard that's nice to take drinks/smoke in and relax.
All staff were very friendly during our stay there. My only complaint is that the hotel can be a bit noisy in the morning, as the bathrooms have a ventilation window that opens into the main corridor, but even with ongoing renovations this was not a big problem.
