directions to Amilcar Hotel
Leave the port, follow the signs to La Goulette and turn right towards Sidi Bou Said soon after leaving the port. Follow the main road at the first roundabout on this road, at the second roundabout take the 5 to option rather than the 5 past option. Continue through La Goulette - can be very busy in the evening. Go past the presidential palace on your right at Carthage - lots of palace guards and guys with motorbikes here. Up the hill, the road bears to the right and just after this is the turn on the right to the hotel - it is signposted, but can be difficult to see in the dark. Go down this road and turn first right, down the hill and into the gates of the hotel on the left hand side.
Cost depends on season, have started chargiong extra for a sea view - but worth it. Low season 58 or 68 dinahs (Dec 06). The view is great from the rooms, overlooking the Med. No need to book ahead as never many there in the low season.
Worth visiting the museum and the ancient Carthage port site if time.
Enjoy your trip
