Ok, but nothing special
Ibn Khaldoun Hotel is a 3-star hotel in the center of Tunis. However, it is about a 40 minutes' walk from the real tourist area (Place de la Victoire), and a taxi costs about 3-4 DNT (about 2 euros). It was our first hotel in Tunisia and the truth is that I didn't like it at first but after experiencing others on our tour of the country I have to say that it wasn't too bad. From the outside, the building looks pretty run down. It's 11 floors high and the facade, which should be white, is completely dirty. The reception, though, is all polished and gleaming marble.
The room was pretty small and shabby. The furniture was yellowish wood, and it had two single beds pushed together, with bedside tables and a small desk with a mirror and trunk. On the table was a TV (not available in all Tunisian hotels). The floor was carpeted and the bedding and curtains looked a bit tacky with their identical floral blue pattern. The bathroom was quite nice, though. It was spacious and had a large bathtub with curtain, a sink with a large mirror, and a toilet (the locals don't use toilet paper, but they do provide it for westerners). There was only a soap dispenser on the wall, but the water pressure was decent.
