Carlton Hotel Dec 26, 2009
Carlton Hotel is a nice old hotel with a central location right in the centre of Tunis. It is right on Avenida Habib Bourguiba which is the main street in the new colonial part of the city leading down to the old medina at one end and the local train station in the other end.
The hotel is fairly quite even though it is on the main street of the city and all with a bath room and TV. There are wifi available in the rooms if you got your own computer. But some of the rooms seem is in need of an upgrade which has only been completed in some parts of the hotel.
The front desk seems to be a bit unaware of the kind of rooms they got in the hotel. When I came to the hotel very late at night I was told to go to a room and guided up there by a porter. But when I got to the room there were three beds and the man looked a bit puzzled by the three beds. He phoned down to the reception speaking in Arabic which meant I had no clue what he was talking about - and then he asked me to talk to the receptionist. He told me he was surprised to hear there were three beds instead of just one and they needed this room for somebody else the next day. This was sort of a first for me hearing a hotel did not know how many beds they got in the different rooms. Then I was taken to another room which was exactly the same as the other room except for the number of beds. Now there were only one bed which they had placed exactly in the middle of the room which had the unfortunate side effect it was virtually impossible to reach the light switch.
You can book rooms online which will give you a discount of about 10-20 percent of the standard rate. The room rate includes a big breakfast which is a mixture of a French and a Tunisian breakfast. You can also have your dinner in the restaurant but you are better off going to one of the nearby restaurants.
