The Hafsi Hotel has lost much of its old splendour, which is a real pity! Ideally, the refacing and renovation work carried out in 2008 should have restored the building's lovely colours. Despite a friendly welcome at the reception desk, the setting is disappointing with its gloomy colours and outdated furniture. Like the first hotels that were built in Tozeur, the Hafsi would look a lot better if it were to undergo proper refurbishment work. However, it does have a backpacker's charm to it that some may find pleasant. The 3 stars it boasts were awarded back in 1973!

    Location 10.0 /10

    The hotel is found in a touristic neighbourhood in the middle of the Tozeur ridge, 10 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the souk and the medina.

    Accommodation 5.20 /10

    The standard rooms are totally nondescript, with a battered bed, a small desk with a TV set, and a closet. In short, the room is small, but at least the terrace creates some added volume and light... Just pray that it doesn't look out onto the parking lot! The rooms that look out onto the garden and swimming pool are only just adequate. The bathrooms are tiny and the tiling and equipment date from another era. The term "suites" is clearly an overstatement, as these differ from the standard rooms only in the equipment they offer and their size. As for the garden on the large patio, it is unkempt. Once again, this is regrettable, as the establishment is wasting great potential.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    Built lengthwise around large patios, the hotel's 142 rooms are found side by side along endless corridors. Among the palm trees around the swimming pool you will find the restaurant and a bar with a terrace. Further down there is a nightclub reserved for hotel guests. The only decorative touches that have some effect are the large Orientalist paintings and the artwork by the famous painter, Manoubi, depicting scenes of life in the Medina. The only source of entertainment is the tiny boutique that sells postcards and various tidbits.

    Food and drink 4.70 /10

    The restaurant room couldn't be more unwelcoming (dull and dark with dirty windows), and we have to admit that we didn't have the courage to try it out. The fact that the orange juice we ordered at the equally dull bar never arrived set the tone. As for the rather enjoyable terrace overlooking the swimming pool, it seems the waiters thought it a little too out of their way. In short, you will see that everything here operates in relation to the arrival of groups... and the quality of the providers.

    To know

    One of the first hotels built to accommodate the throngs of tourists in search of a desert experience, the Hafsi is a good starting point for the trekking enthusiast who isn't particularly interested in comfort and esthetics. However, don't be fooled by its Internet site, which can be a bit misleading!

    • Sarra Sarra Sarra

      • Value for money 6.71
      • Location 10.0

      With its orange walls, ochre bricks, and Hispano-Moorish facade, the Sarra has the potential to really impress. Located on the hillside in the tourist zone, it enjoys one of the finest views of the palm grove and golf course. However, when you enter the park and its unkempt garden, you might well find yourself wondering if the place is still in business, which is a real pity. The hotel manager extends a relaxed welcome in the reception area in an attempt to inject a sense of warmth into the establishment, which once enjoyed a certain prestige. It is well suited to backpackers, and although it claims a 3 star rating, 2 stars would be a more realistic assessment.

    • Ramla Tozeur Ramla Tozeur Ramla Tozeur

      • Value for money 6.91
      • Location 5.12

      Despite its 4 stars, the Ramla hotel is closer to a 3 star hotel by French standards, but it continues to benefit from the ancient Tunisian classification system. However, it is a charming, middle of the range, 3 star Tunisian hotel. Opened in 1994, it undergoes regular renovations. It has kept a traditional architectural style and shows a taste for a 30's-style interior mixed with oriental touches, as seen in the mashrabiyas in almost every room, the zelliges, and the mosaic arabesques. Quaint bordering on kitsch but full of charm, the Ramla provides a friendly place to stay for guests who are looking for a decent level of comfort without any ostentatious luxuries.

      • Value for money 8.14
      • Location 4.75

      Formerly part of the Abou Nawas chain, this, the largest hotel in Tozeur, was bought in 2005 by the Mhiri family - the founders and owners of the El Mouradi brand, which now owns 15 upmarket establishments in Tunisia. Following major renovations, the El Mouradi Tozeur reopened in late 2008. It is housed in a huge white block that dominates the tourist resort (as far as the hotels are concentrated and not the main tourist attractions) of the more elegantly named La Corniche. One of the hotel's major positive points, and something which comes as a pleasant surprise in a hotel of this size, is the warm and spontaneous welcome you'll receive from the management. The El Mouradi is now seen by locals and Tunisian visitors as an essential part of any visit to the area. Far from the image you might have of a Saharan hotel, this one actually follows consistent international standards, much to the comfort of its cosmopolitan clientele.
