Excellent value for money, and a good location - but also plenty of atmosphere and charm. The streets immediately around the hotel might be a bit scruffy and grubby, but you are literally a minute away from Ave Bourguiba, the main entrance to the Medina and the main central food market. It's difficult to think how it could be better...

Courtyard & friendly staff give bonus points. You can walk to Medina, train station, plenty of shops around close to eateries. When i visited Tunis, there were few riots/curfew et al. I felt very safe & comfortable in staying there. Breakfast could have been better.

As we were female travellers (my daughter and I) we were concerned about our reception as not all Tunis hotels welcome unaccompanied females but we shouldn't have worried as the welcome was warm and the staff were a delight. It's a simple hotel but has lots of atmosphere with authentic features and is very well kept. The room was plain...

We spent a night here at the end of our trip to Tunisia. It's located right next to the medina and right next to the market. Easy to find and in walking distance to the train station. The hotel was pretty clean (undergoing renovations currently, Aug 2011) and the price was very reasonable (~€30/night for 2). No WiFi, but there's...

We loved the Grand Hotel de France - it's beautiful and old-fashioned in a good way. The rooms were spartan (definitely ask for one with a view of the courtyard though) but high-ceilinged and airy, and bathrooms basic. But the courtyard was a joy, a cool leafy oasis - and the wonderful moustachioed man who makes and serves the breakfast...

I fell in love with this hotel for its beauty and elegance. The rooms are clean and bright but still retain a lot of charm and the whole place feels like it hasn't changed since the 1920's but in a good way. Very helpful reception staff and it is located conveniently just around the corner from the old medina.

We began our trip in Tunisia at this hotel. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of the Medina. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Our triple ensuite room was really spacious and overlooked the peaceful courtyard. The very reasonable price included breakfast (hot drink and crusty roll with jam) served with a smile. We enjoyed our stay...

An excellent location a few steps from the medina and the central Avenue Habib Bourguiba. Cost/value is excellent. I usually stay in a more upscale business hotel when I'm in Tunis, and the only things the Hotel de France doesn't give you that the one at more than twice the price does is a bathtub (though there's a shower) and...

We stayed here for 4 nights, arriving on the second day of Eid al-Adha and not having booked anything. The hotel was extremely accommodating, providing us with food and water at a low cost as all the supermarkets were closed. A room was made ready for us immediately, and was spotless. Breakfast was not included (for a few extra dinars...
