Dar El Medina
Ranked #20 of 55 Hotels in Tunis
Reviewed 7 May 2017

I had a suite which was a spacious multi-level, well ventilated space. Lots of light with the shutters open, or as dark as one likes with them closed.
Very clean, well maintained rooms and bath. Very comfortable bed.
Very good, fast in-room Wi-Fi. All rooms seem quiet and well separated, unless you come as a group, in which case there are a few rooms grouped around their own courtyard.
I did not eat there though the food is said to be good, according to other guests I met there. Rooftop dining at night is available.
Very friendly, helpful staff able to assist with local restaurants and touristy sites.
This Dar is a few hundred yards from the nearest taxi drop-off point, so expect a short walk to the Dar. It is right in the middle of the old medina, with all streets narrow and winding, but fairly easy to not get lost. There is a map of the area in each room, and just ask for directions from the staff if a little uncertain how to get to where you want to go. Many souqs and other attractions are nearby.

Room Tip: Suites are large and reasonably priced, with some on the street and some more quiet on the upper flo...

This is a typical old family house in the Medina, re-purposed into a characterful hotel. Not quite 'boutique' but worth visiting if you're ready for something a bit Tunisian, and are prepared to walk & drag your suitcase to it.

Our one night there was pleasant enough, but we did have the tiniest room imaginable, and the bathroom was a postage stamp. We enjoyed the balcony for our early evening aperitif, but the price was higher than we needed to pay (244 dinar which was $120 at the time). The young man holding the fort was overwhelmed and not very helpful with information. The view from the roof was worth climbing for!

Stayed here for a week in October 2015. The house couldn't be lovelier - each room is different, carvings, mosaics, lovely tiles. Really a gem.
But I found the staff unhelpful and unfriendly. It has a rigid way of doing things and will not depart - so, we asked every day for fruit for breakfast. Not possible. There is fruit in the market, I had to go and buy for myself. But this hotel WILL NOT depart from their set way of presenting breakfast. In the same way they could not/would not help me with telephoning a taxi, searching for a gym, providing a kettle in my room.
I'm working here in Tunis and this hotel is very unsuitable. There is no desk, no chair at which it's suitable to type on a laptop. Wifi is hit and miss.
Stay a couple of nights as a tourist, you'll love it. But don't expect any flexibility to cater to your needs. Amenities are pretty much non existent. Restaurant (in my opinion) very poor.

Room Tip: all rooms are different, ask to see a few and choose

The rooms were lovely. Spacious. Clean. Excellent location. Breakfast is simple fare. Usual the same every morning. Staff friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel for one night or several nights.
