I read several of the reviews with wonder. Breakfast, though nothing more than bread butter and marmelade and unlimited coffee was available at 7:30. The room was comfortably warm, retaining the heat of the day. Yes, there was but one outlet in the room and it was at an angle toward the floor. All the toilets flushed, the shower had... More

This place is strictly for Star Wars fan only. If you really wish to experience staying in a Troglotyde cave hotel there are far better options. I paid 25TND for a bed and breakfast (which I didn't take because I left early at 6am), and there are better options nearby, like the Hotel berber nearby, a newer, cleaner troglotyde hotel... More

My friend and I spent a week visiting the various Star Wars filming sites in Tunisia, and we spent one night in the Hotel Sidi Driss. The receptionist was very kind and conversational (English), and we spent time talking about the history of the hotel and the area as well as its connection to Star Wars. He made us feel... More

The welcome when I arrived was fine and the lunch was good. I soon found out how basic the facilities were - no en suite rooms for a start. I used 3 of the 6 toilets for males during my stay and not one flushed properly. No hot water (pretty bad in winter). No proper locks on the rooms, just... More

This hotel is definitely worth a stay if your a star wars fan, it isn't everyday you get to stay in a movie set. The rooms themselves are very basic but the bed was comfortable enough. We didn't arrive until quite late due to travelling but the person who was working offered to make us food if we wanted it,... More

Initially this was an amazing experience. We had the Star Wars set to ourselves and dinner was very good. A family of cats jumped on the table and ate our leftovers which seemed quite amusing... Now I've stayed in hostels all over the world so I was prepared for a basic room. What we found was basically a smelly damp... More

Would I stay here with my wife and daughter, no. Do I consider my night at the Sidi Driss one of the greatest hotel experiences of my life, yes! Star Wars is in my blood.

For about the same price as an organised trip for 2 you can hire a car and make your own adventure. The hotel is easy to find in Matmata or you can give a local youth a dinar or 2 and he will lead you to it. Didn't stay over, but the rooms don't look very comfortable. The food here... More

If you want to get away from the beaches and tourist towns of the Tunisian coast, Matmata is the destination to choose! We came to the Hotel Sidi Driss because we knew that many Star Wars films were actually filmed here, and, yes, that was the ONLY thing we knew before coming. Matmata is on the edge of the Sahara...
