We stayed here for one night on the way back from an Erg Chebbi desert trek.
The hotel is a bit surreal in that it's the grounds of a deserted desert film studio and has mummies and Egyptian paraphernalia everywhere. I think we stayed at a particularly quiet time - there were 6 other guests at most - so perhaps some of the faded Hollywood glamour and mystique was missing!
Our room was quite large with an ensuite as well as a separate washbasin behind the door. It
was clean and comfortable, but our clothes did reek a bit of mothballs for a few days afterwards. There is a swimming pool for cooling off, with some loungers and chairs dotted around it.
The waiting staff were excellent - very efficient, friendly and they made sure they catered to some allergy-related dietary requirements we had. The food was good and fresh - it was a set menu with no choice - but I think they cooked us some extra dishes from scratch to accommodate us (me) and my allergy.
There are Gladiator pictures everywhere - so if you're a fan, this is probably the hotel for you!
