Hotel Splendid is conveniently located a minute or so from the medina but on a quiet street. It has an old fashioned kind of slightly dilapidated charm. The room was very large for a budget hotel and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also inlcuded - bread, cake, coffee/tea - fairly typical for Tunisia and perfectly fine (Lonely Planet describes the breakfast size as small but this is not the case at the moment). We were able to negotiate a modest price reduction but we didn't bargain that hard. There is a local bar in the downstairs part of the hotel but we couldn't hear any noise from it at night.
