Bayram Palace: A luxury 5* Hôtel [http://palaisbayram.com] The last residence of the Ottoman Grand Muftis, the “Palais Bayram” Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the oldest part of the historic Medina, a few steps from the Ez-Zitouna Grand Mosque and the Kasbah, on the way to Turbet-el-Bey (the royal necropolis). It is now a place of memory and relaxation, essential for a successful visit in the rich architectural, cultural and artistic past of Tunisia. The Palais Bayram is one of the rare hotels in the world that belongs to the 18th century and has been restored “à l’antique” in its volumes and with its original existing decors: painted woodwork and coffered ceilings, marble pediments and floors, earthenware and stuccoes. And two discreet walled gardens.
