A lovely place in an authentic setting! The best choice for up-market accommodation in Medina old town, the family-run Dar El Medina Tunis hotel offers plenty of charm and a relaxed setting surrounded by hundreds of years’ history.

Divide your time between the internal courtyard and the gorgeous sitting room area with TV or wander through the property’s impressive salons, admiring the decorative paintings and stucco. Live like the locals and enjoy a delicious tea in the daytime tea room and café, but be sure to make it to the roof terrace for the time of the call to prayer in order to watch the sun set over Tunis, or at any time of the day to take in the breathtaking city views from your cushioned alcove seat.
Superb cuisine is all around you! A visit to Tunis wouldn’t be complete without savoring the local food and drink where African, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean influences combine to tantalize. The on site restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner; reservations required. You can also venture outside Dar El Medina and give one of the beautiful neighborhood restaurants a try; many of them are housed in dazzling 18th-century mansions, and they offer superb, authentic cuisine at inexpensive prices.
An ideal base for exploring the city! As well as boasting excellent eateries, the Medina old town the hotel is located in is a marvelous place to visit. A collection of tiny alleys, covered passages, scents, colors and excellent shops and stalls, selling anything from souvenirs to crafts, the Medina forms the beating heart of the city, around which the modern areas have been built. You’ll find yourself a short walk from museums and historical sights, including the Great Mosque, the Cathedral of St. Vincent, and Dar Ben Abdullah museum. If you feel like venturing outside the city, it doesn’t get much better than a day trip to Carthage, the UNESCO World Heritage site that hosts the ruins of this once-great civilization, or head to the just as impressive Dougga, an impressive archaeological site where once stood an ancient Roman city.
