Palais Bayram is a very good choice if you are looking for a local flavor yet good levels of service and comfort. On top of that it is located in the center of the medina making it a perfect base for exploration! Just be aware it is not easy finding the hotel and they don't have any alcohol.

I write my review as a eating place, not a hotel.
The Palais Bayram is a traditional Tunisian cuisine restaurant.
The place is not that easy to find and you need to rent a taxi to go there, which is not that expensive.
The offer a four course dinner, which is good.

Palais Bayram is undoubtedly the top hotel in Tunis medina and possibly the most charming and beautiful hotel in Tunis.
The hotel is located in one of the nicest areas of the medina, recognized by UNESCO as world heritage site. The hotel building itself is an architectural jewel worth a stay just to admire its beauty.

Rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished with old if not antique furniture; bathrooms are are very spacious and extra modern. The only "glitch," quite understandable given the nature of the building and its historical value, rooms tend to be cold during wintertime.

The hotel staff know how to make one feel welcomed and a valued guest: they are all extremely attentive to customers and doing their best to satisfy any need (I wanted to rent a car at the last minute and the staff was able to arrange it for me).
I had a small issue with the credit card payment that was addressed and solved within a reasonable period of time.

A la carte food is delicious, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. The main restaurant is just beautiful.

I haven't tried the Turkish bath nor the hammam that are supposedly another hotel treat.

Le Palais Bayram is a charming, meticulously restored palace in the Kasbah. The current owners have decided to share this space, and the spectacular examples of art within it, including, but not limited to, a rare collection of Iznik tiles that have been hand-restored, with the public as a boutique hotel. The loving restoration of the building took seven years, and this is made immediately evident by the fact that when you step into Le Palais Bayram, you feel as if you are being transported through time; there are no modern fittings that have been used to "fill the gaps," instead, the restoration has been performed with patience, granting the space the dignity that it so rightly deserves.

The rooms are exquisite, it is sometimes difficult to sleep, knowing that you are losing the opportunity to gaze endlessly at the stunning examples of craftsmanship on display in each unique suite. The team that service the palace are warm and inviting, taking every opportunity to ensure that your needs are being met. Unfortunately, the only meal that I had at the hotel was breakfast; the pastries, fruits, and coffee were flawless.

Staying at Le Palais Bayram was one of the most wonderful surprises ever; from the reviews, and certainly, when you are approaching the property, it is completely unassuming. You have no idea what you are going to experience until you step in, where you are welcomed into a bygone era; enveloped in magnificent surroundings, where perfection and customer service are still sought...

I salute the entire team at Le Palais Bayram, but especially the proprietors, who embarked on an ambitious plan to restore the Palace and to share it with the public as a hotel. It is my sincere prayer that this noble cause will continue to be a lasting testament for generations to come.

A small boutique hotel in the Medina. I stayed here one night and I absolutely enjoyed it. This is not a hotel your taxi driver will know about so you better save the location as a star in Google maps or similar so that you find it more easily.
Breakfast was good, rooms very nice and service impeccable. Would definitely come again.
