Hotel of the week: Dar el Medina, Tunis, Tunisia
Dar el Medina is a restored, family-owned mansion tucked into the city's 1,300-year-old medina.
 

A night in Dar el Medina is like “staying in a small castle,” said Jason George in the Chicago Tribune. Tucked into the heart of Tunis’ “1,300-year-old medina,” this restored, family-owned 1825 mansion offers refuge from the “bustling, dusty” capital. Enter through its iron gates, and be transported back to a world of “sultan style.” Brass lamps light the arched corridors. Sunshine through “ornate carved windows” throws shadows on the stucco walls of the elegant 12 rooms. Wake up to fig jam, poppy-seed cake, and a breakfast that’s “one of the best meals in town.”
