Description:LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL
Dar Ben Gacem was built in the 17th century, and was restored into a 7 room boutique hotel inaugurated on the 1st of Sept 2013. Original architecture was preserved as best as possible; all ancient poles, tiles and ceiling gypsum have been restored thanks to talented craftsmanship. All furniture is either vintage or handcrafted by Tunisian artisans and artists coming from all over the Tunisia.
Dar Ben Gacem is strategically located in the old 'medina' of Tunis surrounded by museums, art galleries, medrassas and souks. As soon as you leave Dar Ben Gacem, you enter the magical old town with colorful magical alleys full of history.
