Tunisia is a geographically diverse country with mountains in the west, rolling hills and plains to the northwest, and a desert in the south. Just as diverse as this country’s natural treasures are its budget hotels, which offer distinct features at affordable prices.
Hotel Emira in Hammamet is a budget hotel with chic facilities. Located one kilometre from the beach and 70 kilometres from the Tunis Carthage International Airport, this hotel allows you to enjoy water sports such as aqua aerobics and water polo, participate in daily and nightly activities provided by a multilingual entertainment team, and even spoil yourself with on-site shopping. Children will be busy with a slew of exciting activities such as mini Olympics, mini disco, and instructive games—all done under the supervision of trained professionals. Multilingual personnel are available 24 hours for your inquiries and concerns. There is a swimming pool and garden filled with bougainvillea and jasmine; a nice touch to this hotel’s affordable rates.
Welcoming guests in the heart of Tunis city centre since 1926 is Carlton Hotel. Sporting vintage art deco, this low-cost hotel combines business and leisure facilities. Relax in the orthopaedic mattresses in the hotel’s “soundproof rooms” (Guide bleu Evasion Tunisie, 2004), or grab a bite in the Newrest Carlton cafeteria, with its terrace overlooking the avenue. Additional perks are its quality service and friendly staff.
Other Tunisia hotels worth checking out are Hotel Omrane in Tunis, Miramar Djerba in Djerba, and Club Thapsus in Mahdia.
