Well-located right in the middle of Houmt Souk, I spent one night here at the end of a week's trekking in the Sahara in January 2013.
First impressions are of a very characterful boutique hotel - it's definitely kept the qualities of the caravanserai, including the quite tricky door keys! Rooms are tastefully decorated and equipped, although very cold at that time of year.. and we could probably have done with more than a couple of minutes of hot water, too.
Still, these are minor quibbles. It's very peaceful and relaxing, very easy to find your way back to, and a real 'step back in time' treat. The food was lovely, too! Would definitely stay here again.
