first set of pictures has been taken in December 2009 when the hotel was still being build.
Considering the surrounding, the hotel is a surprisingly massive, huge, building. It was supposed to be even bigger, with a direct connection to the Tej Marhaba shopping center (from where the photographs are taken) via a bridge, but the bridge has been declined by the authorities. The Moevenpick hotel is run in a joint venture by the owner of the Marhaba hotels in Sousse and the Moevenpick hotel chain. The hotel will most probably be set up to accomodate holiday, health and business travellers. There is another Moevenpick hotel existing in Djerba.

The second set of photos of the Moevenpick Hotel in Sousse was taken in June 2010. The hotel is now finished and open for business:
