This hotel has a sunken courtyard, in emulation of the troglodyte pit dwellings that dot the landscape here. It's a pleasing effect, and the rooms that open onto it are also done troglodyte style, which was fun. The bedroom itself was clean, but the bathroom had lots of mold on the window frame and was otherwise in need of refreshing.... More

This hotel was definitely different! Its location is simply spectacular and the grounds are quite beautiful. BUT, do yourself a favour and ask for a room on the ground fllor - we were assgined a room on the second floor and it was a hassle getting our luggage all the way up. The cleanliness of the bathrooms could also use... More

We stayed here for one night with 6 adults and 6 children. I think we had the best room of the hotel, which was 311. It has two bedrooms with two large (double) beds and one single one. We added a matrace from out neighbouring room and had the 6 kids sleeping there together. Food was limited (quantity and quality,... More

Berber themed hotel in Old Matmata. Rooms have an entry area and bathroom, but bed is in a cave-like hole. Weak AC/fan only blew warm air that did not reach the cave so bedroom was hot and stuffy. Bedroom ceiling is low and walls are dusty. I'm 5'10" and I smacked my head against the ceiling twice. Bathroom is passable... More

Me and my 7 year old son knocked one evening on the door asking for a room. For about £20 a night, we had the most amazing room, sleeping in a 'modern cave'. My son being a Star Wars fan was thrilled. We were served a three course set meal that was included and although simple, very delicious. Soup, Salads... More

The hotel was the best in Matmata, you can experience a Troglodite house, food was good. The staff was very nice and Matmata's location it's great to stay two nights if you are travelling without a group, to visit the Bere Bere Fortifications and Ksar Grihlane, in the Sahara Matmata it is also worth seeing, really special and unique
