We arrived in Tunis late at night, as we had wanted a full day stopover in Paris. The airport was easy to navigate, with an ATM right at the exit, and soon we were on our way to our hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Maison Doree . The cab driver even gave us a guided tour on our way in at midnight, as we tried to stay awake.The hotel was a three star hotel that I guess used to be much nicer. The main entry was off a deserted side street. The location could not have been more convenient for the medina, the train station, and the trams. The large room had a very comfortable bed, dodgy looking rug (we wore sandals), and a shower with sometimes hot water (about half the time we tried to use it. Unfortunately, there was no rhyme or reason to when it had hot water – we just learned to try morning and night and hope for the best). (Hot water did not seem to be Tunisia’s forte).
