Simple and cheap, but that's the extent of it
Posted Aug 20, 2012
Because we have been staying at hostels and sleeping in train stations for the majority of our trip, this hotel is probably put under better light by this review.
It's along a line of resorts, but don't think you'll be staying at one even close. The room was badly cleaned, but they had AC available and when the windows were shut, it kept a good deal of the noise out. However, Tunisian people like to stay up VERY late, so you shouldn't be upset to hear a lot of ruckus up until 4am or so.
The staff were very friendly and we were lucky to have the night security speak a great deal of English as we know almost no French or Arabic. But communication was fine when we tried.
We felt secure for the most part, but a lot of the loud noises could be jarring and the only thing that helped that was not being on the first floor. Our AC in the first room was broken and it was SO hot and stuffy but when we asked to change rooms they were very nice about it.
Overall it was a pleasant experience, but I can see many people being highly disappointed with the cleanliness and location (street noise).
