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, the front desk attendant asked if we wanted to partake in Iftar or the sunset meal of Muslims when they break their daily fast. What a treat. We were able to share the occasion with locals, adding to our experience of Authentic Tunis. The rooms were cozy and clean - maybe a bit too warm for my husband. But there was AC and it eventually cooled down enough. I enjoyed the local interior design, a mix of antique and modern locally crafted pieces. And you can't beat the location. The hotel is within walking distance to small little shops throughout Medina and other tourist spots nearby. Because of Ramadan, things were shuttered until the sun went down, so we didn't get to experience much in the day. And because the streets come alive at night, the noise level was an issue when we finally turned in for sleep. But it was minor. You'll love it here for at least a one-to-two night stay on your way to the coast.
