Affordable nice central hotel Apr 06, 2011
I have lived in this 4 star hotel for some time and I must admit that the staff is extremely friendly, doesn't matter if cleaning staff, the reception or in the restaurant.

When you come in it gives you quite a welcoming feeling the nice reception/bar area.

The location is quite good as it is located about 5 minutes by taxi from the old village Medina in Sousse. The only disavantage is that it's not directly at the beach. You have to cross a street and pass a massive construction building to reach the beach.

Nevertheless it has a nice pool area.

The rooms are nice, with carpet floor and loads of space. The rooms with view to the tennis court are for sure more quiet than the ones with view to the sea. Especially as there's a big construction side and you might hear some noise, even though it's not extremely disturbing, if you're not so fussy.

The rooms are well cleaned. Important is giving tips (5 Dinars per week at least) to the cleaning woman. She will then make some nice figures with the towels and probably put flowers as well. Instead of money you can also give chocolate, she's gonna be happy. This costum might be applied all over Tunisia.

The inside pool is also ok. Pity that it gets closed early in the evening (7 o'clock). The gym lesson (step aerobics) was good. There's also a SPA aera.

The food in the restaurant is good, a wide range of salads and hot meals on the buffet. The desserts are also very delicious, espically the fruit tarts! The service is good , friendly staff as mentioned before and the buffet gets refilled as soon as it's empty.

When you arrive, don't forget to give some tips to the man who brings your luggage to your room. The salary is basically low and the employees are very keen on tips. However, don't feel to be forced to, just give tips, if they are really friendly and helpful.

Don't go on free tours (offered to you by some guys at the entrance to the restaurant) as you might be forced to buy a carpet you don't want to buy. It's easy going on your own or ask your rep!

Yes and very important: in a different building exists "the Tej Marhaba apartments" BUT there not it is supposed to be not as half as nice as the hotel! so to avoid inconveniencies, I'd rather DONT recommend the appartments due to people I've met who had bad experiences!

The Hotel Tej Marhaba is a good option for people who want to be located in the center, who don't care much about beeing away from the beach but having a hotel worth it's (affordable) price.

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week in Sousse staying at the Tej Marhaba Hotel. It is a lovely hotel – very big and part of a larger complex which includes a few restaurants and a shopping centre. You don’t really feel invaded by the complex as it all lies behind the main part of the hotel. The staff are excellent – always on hand to help or get you a drink. The hotel do charge 5 DT to hire a safety deposit box and ask for a 10DT returnable deposit as well; it is worth using as you can access the box at any time without disturbing the staff. The room was great – very clean, with nice bathroom and a balcony. The maid comes every day and creates an amazing design with the blankets on the beds! The hotel has a lovely pool area (and indoor pool) and all sun-beds/parasols are free. There is also a private beach (across a busy main road) where sun-beds are also free. The bar area /reception is very large and open all day. The evening entertainment is rather cheesy and included a band who played covers followed by bingo and then a show put on by the entertainment staff. We went out a few times to eat and escape the waltzing on the dance floor and can highly recommend the Cristal Restaurant on the main square by the Medina and The Lido Restaurant on the sea front a little bit further down the front. Try the fish which was excellent in both places and really fresh. A main course will cost approx £7-10 per person. We stayed half board and got a buffet style breakfast and evening meal. The food was your usual buffet fare – various English dishes and a few Tunisian ones but there was loads of choice – we always found something good and every night was a different menu. The breakfast was ok but not amazing – there was a chef who would cook fried eggs or omelettes on demand and there was also a full salad bar (!), yoghurts, cereal or if you are feeling brave there is a Tunisian option. There was no fruit available apart from oranges or dates which was rather disappointing but you could pay for a glass of freshly squeezed OJ. Drinks are not included with the meals, apart from tea/coffee with breakfast so you do have to pay if you want anything else. We had a fantastic week at the Tej Marhaba and after doing a tour of other hotels (whilst picking up tourists on our excursions) we thought our hotel looked the best and was in the best location being in Sousse itself with the beach 5 mins away and the medina/centre only a 20 minute walk or 2 dinar taxi ride away. We would definitely go back and stay at the hotel again.

I've been there with my boyfriend last summer. We had a great time, the service is indeed excellent. The people are nice, even though they speak little english. Fun thing is there are plenty of Dutch people so some of the staff actually speak a few Dutch words :).
Just one little thing, with breakfast we actuallt did have free OJ, grapefruit juice and lemon juice available.
And the dessert table was just amazing! I loved that merengue pie or something ;)
