Only stayed here for two nights on a business trip but I was very impressed - staff were extremely polite and helpful, breakfast was excellent and the bed was super comfy. Normally I stay at the Sheraton when in Tunis which, to be fair, is fine - but I'll be staying here in future.

Although the facilities are great, the management of this hotel is one of the most awful and unprofessional I have ever seen. They have zero sense of how to deal with loyal customers. My organization has been using the Hotel for events and workshops for the last 4 years. In the last month, we have had two incidents that demonstrated...

The Residence is one of the top hotels in Tunis. All of the staff are fluent in Arabic, French, and English, so there isn't a problem communicating for most guests. Rooms are spacious and my husband and I upgraded to receive a nicer room with buffet breakfast each morning - this was WELL worth the price. The buffet is extensive...

Have been staying at the residence for many years. Same level of reliable service and quality but starting to show its age especially with new hotels in the city coming up. Overall good show of Tunisan hospitality.

My wife, our twins and myself stayed there for 5 nights and I can highly recommend the hotel itself. The only negative point are the security guys that are in a very bad mood and not helpful at all. I hope this will be changed as a hotel like The Residence deserved something better.

The Residence offers an indulging escape from life in Tunis with all the amenities of a proper five star hotel - which probably makes it the only hotel in Tunisia for which this is true.
