Advantages Comfortable pleasant rooms, spotless, lots of amenities.
Disadvantages The catering was adequate but a bit boring.
Walking through the entrance a huge arch holds a massive glass lantern in Moorish style. Comfortable seats and tables sit either side of the doors. We tended to sit out here in the evening and have a drink and a game of Scrabble and watch the world go by. The bar staff would stick their heads out every so often and check if we needed anything. One of the waiters was fascinated by the game and would solemnly point out words on my tile rack to help me. I think he was trying to help me but some of the words were not quite in English. I don't think they were Arabic either! Apparently Scrabble is available in Arabic but there is a difficulty buying the real version so most people make do with a bootleg version and the board falls to bits. (The things you learn when ordering a drink in the Tej Marhaba!)The hotel lobby is absolutely massive, You could hold an aircraft sale in there! Reception is to the left and we were quickly booked in by the friendly and multilingual staff. Behind the reception and money exchange are the safety deposit and luggage rooms. A safety deposit box cost us about £7.00 for the week and is a wise investment. A returnable deposit of 20 Tunisian Dinar (about £10.00) was required for the key.
In the middle of the hotel lobby stood a bar surrounded by a water feature where the fountains played periodically.
