This is a very comfortable Riad not far from the Ziat gate. The hotel will send a car and driver to pick you up at the rail station or airport, but taking one of the red taxis to the gate and getting instructions from there is another option.
Mohammed welcomed us with mint tea and cookies. He can arrange tours for guests. We purchased a map of the Medina from one of the tobacco shops down the hill from the Museum Batha and found our way around the souks and old city. This works well if you have enough time and prefer to be independent.
Dinner prepared by the hotel staff was delicious and reasonably priced at 18 EUR for several salads, tagine of chicken, onions, and raisins, plus fruit for dessert.
Our room was cozy with a comfortable bed, bath, and air conditioning. A hair dryer was not in the room but you can get one from the front desk if needed.
We booked our stay through Booking.com--it's not clear on the booking.com site that the hotel does not accept cards. We are fine with paying cash but suggest that the policy be clearly posted and on the hotel website and Booking.com to avoid misunderstanding.
Mohammed and his staff are very helpful and work diligently to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. We would stay here again.
