We have just returned from a week at La Gondole in Sousse. We were really very happy with this hotel. The people on reception were great and went out of their way to help us when required. We especially enjoyed our chats with Foued, the night receptionist.

We felt that the location of the hotel was perfect. It was directly opposite the beautiful beach which we had a stunning view of from our room. It felt like a very local, as opposed to touristy, part of Sousse which we liked. Good people watching and very friendly people all round.

It was just a short walk to the Medina where there were some lovely restaurants, wonderful (and extremely cheap!) markets (souks) and two fantastic museums which are definitely worth a visit.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled as a couple

A hotel that may have seen better days, but they are going all out to bring you in and keep you happy. The staff was all absolutely first-class, friendly, and all speaking English. I paid 30 dinar per night (US $20) in mid-April for a huge double room, used as a single, right across the street from the beach and the sea. Stunning views at sunrise and sunset. The room had a large desk and chair, a comfortable easy chair, plus a small table with chairs for eating (although no refrigerator). A small drawback: the shower curtain didn't reach all the way down, so the bathroom floor had to be wiped dry every time (they were generous with extra towels). . . Lonely Planet gives it a strange write-up, and claims high season is overpriced; I asked, and was told my room would run 35 to 40 dinar during the summer, still a steal.

Room Tip: If you face the beach and leave the window open, you will get some traffic noises, but the people traffic virtually disappears after 9:00 p.m.

La Gondole Hotel Suisse,

August 2010,

Just returned from a weeks stay in what was described as a four star hotel but was really a low budget hostel. In fact we have stayed in nicer hostels on weekend breaks and definitely far better four star hotels.

Restaurant
The restaurant was not busy and the first morning despite arriving 45 minutes before breakfast was due to finish we were told by another guest that they were clearing away. We wrongly assumed that there would be a greater selection on following mornings. Breakfast was the same every day Croissants. Pan au chocolat coffee, tea (if you asked for it) two cold drinks one which was red and the other light green but no recognizable flavour.

Evening meal was four courses and was the same every night in that it was soup then salad then a meat course and melon 5 nights and cake the other two for dessert. The choice was take it or leave it.
The staff were pleasant but there was no attempt to help with bags or even let us know when our taxi arrived to take us to the airport. Some confusion at the start of the stay as the receptionist did not understand that we had already paid and was insisting on being paid again. This was resolved after phone calls and the director coming from somewhere else reading our receipt and saying it was OK we could stay at which point the receptionist told us we were welcome but as this was midnight and we had been sitting in reception for about half an hour while this was sorted out we were too tired to care luckily we had the proof with us that we had paid. Make sure you take all paper work with you and not just booking references..
The hotel was basic not close to other four star hotels we have stayed in at best probably a 2 star and over priced for what was on offer. Much of the amenities advertised did not exist eg internet in the room, pool, bar, satellite TV currency exchange private beach is actually a misnomer as it is a poorly maintained section of the main beach and the adjacent section is better in every respect for the same charge .Other guests complained but there was no explanation.
The room was quiet and given a basic clean each day with towels being changed but rugs were not cleaned during our stay.

I spent almost 2 weeks in "La Gondole" - end enjoyed it. The hotel is placed right at the beach - and a really great beach too. The director of the hotel is kind and very focused on helping you enjoy yr stay at the hotel. which I really did (enjoy it)

The view from the hotel is absolutely wonderful - overlooking the beautiful ocean. and the rooms are clean & large. The beds / matresses are of "western" quality (not the supersoft "hammocks" you find sometimes).

The staff is kind and lobby is watched 24/7 - I had all my stuff - as well as cash lying in the room and every penny stayed where i left it. I even enjoyed a few late and very nice dialogues with the manager in the lobby of tunesian culture vs eu culture :o)

You cannot escape a bit of noise from the beach promenade in front of hotel - but the aircondition will take most of that. Bring ear plugs, as I always do

This hotel is placed in the zone where most non-european tourists come, which means you do not find and super-drunk youngsters, no mega neon signs (which I find great)

The beach in front of the hotel is watched (you pay appr 3-5 dinars / day for parasol & sunbed) - and a really great beach - where also kids can enjoy themselves

There is Wi-Fi in the lobby

All in all - it was a really nice hotel - and I recommend it a lot.
