Luxury hotel in Kairouan

by written on February 28, 2016

As its name indicates, la Kasbah is housed in the mediaeval citadelle of the city of Kairouan. It is the only luxury hotel in town and probably the only decent place to stay. The entire outside walls of original construction have survived, including the reused Roman columns, but the actual hotel building and everything else within the walls is of modern construction. I did not stay here, but had considered the place when I was previously planning a longer trip to Tunisia. I walked in for a quick look in Feb 2016 and took the attached photos.

This hotel is built to resemble a traditional Arab Kasbah (castle) and therefore blends right in with the architecture of the surrounding city. Inside its luxurious, if a little bit dated.

I must admit I am not used to stay in 5 star hotels. But as we wanted a bit of luxury and to pamper ourselves we decided to get a room in Kairouan's only 5 star hotel.
I was pleased with the overall experience. It costed 55 € per person (room + breakfast + buffet dinner) which is excellent value. In fact we had no need to eat anything else during the day as both breakfast and dinner were buffets with large choice and eat as much as you like!
La Kasbah is built in the grounds of the old Kasbah of Kairouan, but just the exterior walls are presrved (rooms are new) and its cafe which was the old prison. It is located a short walk from the Great mosque and it's very convenient for walking around the Medina.
There is a swimming pool in the centre of the courtyard (well preserved) and its lobby is bright and luxurious. There is also a health spa.
Our room facing like all others the courtyard, was quiet, nicely decorated with tiles, spotlessly clean, even with a mini balcony. In general all the amentities you expect from a hotel of its class. Strongly recommended if it's within your budget.

a view on the Medina

by written on September 11, 2002

My friends chose it: all I can say is that it's posh, very posh... and a bit anonymous. But the location is excellent and the price is actually not too bad, compared to international standards.

Unique Quality: The architecture, to be fair, has character, but inside it's as personal as posh hotel usually are. There's a great huge swimming pool, but in January it was far too cold to even go near it.

Directions: just uotside the medina
