This is a small beautiful hotel within the Medina. The rooms are large, the decor lovely, the facilities terrific and the staff are wonderfully helpful, It was a real pleasure to stay there.

Lovely renovated hotel with rooms around courtyards. North African detailing in styling with Moroccan lamps and wall colours. Welcomed to hotel with almond milk drink and live guitar music. Staff very friendly and attentive with good English skills.

The traditional door in the street wall gave no indication of what lies behind. The spacious foyer area with comfortable sofas allows you the opportunity to appreciate the fine interior of this combo accommodation (several town houses merges into one). The traditional open roofed courtyards enable you to enjoy an azure sky on sunny days whilst sipping mint tea or coffee. There are also some nice seating areas on the upper floors where you can read or doze. We changed our room (the manager was very obliging) to have an outside window as many open onto the courtyards or balconies. All seemed spacious with separate shower room. The breakfasts offered a variety of preserved fruits and jams that we enjoyed.
The hospitality was excellent and we wish Araf the very best with his business plans.

We have stayed here twice now and it is such a great place in the middle of the old town, the entrance hall is really like your own living room where you can check emails on your laptop and have some arabic mint tea. The rooms are spacious and have a great shower rooms with a rain shower. The decoration is very special with arabic style but a hint of modern touches. It is so clean there, and the hotel management take such a good care of everything from arranging cars to helping with printing. I would really recommend this place.

Evocative and atmospheric hotel combining excllent service and all modern facilities with a traditional feel. Built around courtyards open to the sky and warmed at night by braziers. Proporieter couldn't be more helpful - suggesting sites to visit and places to eat. Breakfast buffet with wide choice of European and Arab dishes. Friendly staff. Large rooms with neat period touches. Spotlessly clean.

Location in old city, close to arch of Marcus Aurilius, is great for access to souks and sites.

This was an absolute gem. Right in the heart of the medina, so easy to get around. Rooms are all unique and the one I had was large, with a seating area and extremely comfortable. The hotel consists of a number of old houses knocked into one and decorated in traditional style. The manager was friendly and helpful. An unreserved recommendation!
