Dar Lemdina, Rue Sidi Ben Arous, Medina, Tunis, Tunisia.
The warmth of the Past of the Medina of Tunis,in a charming Hotel.
This charming Hotel, within the Medina ( the old Arab town from the 7th C AD), tells a special story , as the proprieotor himself a native of the Medina of Tunis, and belongs to a very known midle class family,the Belhouene's, who still have their photos decorating the vestibule and the walls of the tiny reception that leads to the café Maure and the library at the floor and the 12 rooms that bear person Tunisian nick-names, like Faffani, or Daddou. The cuisine in this Hotel is typically mediterranean ( Tunisian) with staple meals that probably are not available in the industry, if not only in traditional Tunisian families. There you are in the beating heart of the Bazars, the souks the Mosques , just wonder around .
