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.

I stayed at the Residence for business recently and was overwhelmed by how lovely it was and the excellent service I received. The lobby is spectacular - fountains with rose petals floating in them, high ceilings and well maintained. The spa is gorgeous and everyone treated me like a queen during the three visits I made there. The rooms are...

I have stayed at the Residence for a total 45 days in two tranches. It is situated in Gammarth, in a place that is kind of in the middle of nowhere.

The Residence is our hotel of choice in Tunis, for ourselves and our guests. The hotel is in an area of Gamarth which has very limited access from the city, and can therefore be kept secure easily by the security services.

Nice hotel with lots of light rooms are nice and big, good breakfast and spacious lobby bar. I dont like it but it has live music in the lobby bar. A bit far from the city but if you are around Gammarth area good place to stay with some restaurants around.
