Located in the heart of Tunis' old medina, Dar El Medina is a beautifully restored 19th-century family home, offering a mix of tradition and modernity with a relaxed and personal ambience. It is a short walk to many of the medina's fascinating sights, including the Great Mosque and the Chechia souk as well as many local shops, cafes and restaurants. It is approximately 10km from the airport and 1km to the nearest beach. Please note that because of its location in the old city, this property can only be reached on foot and is approximately five minutes' walk from the nearest car access point.
Whitewashed and tiled, the multi-level mansion offers 12 guestrooms, named after Tunisian women. Contemporary in style, each room mixes rich local textiles with modernist paintings and is different in shape and size. All rooms have a comfortable queen size bed, a character-rich en suite bathroom and modern amenities such as a television, internet access and telephone. Due to the traditional architecture and design of the riad, the rooms may have small windows, which are interior facing into the public areas of the riad.
There is a small tearoom where a continental breakfast is served and a beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the old town. There are various salons and Arabesque-style corners for after dinner relaxation. Whle there are no restaurant facilities on site, some delightful restaurants are close by. These include Dar El Jeld restaurant, which is housed in one of the medina's finest 18th-century mansions and Hamouda Pacha, a genteel tearoom and restaurant on the corner of the street.
