Opposite the Marcus Aurelius Arch we looked into a lovely inner courtyard (picture 1). The people invited us to have a look around. It seemed to be a hotel. The original hotel was allready created in 1816. The hotel was installed as a rendez vous for convoys of merchants coming from Africa and Europe.

The hotel is restored and furnished with traditional handiwork. When we visited the hotel in 2006, it was almost finished to receive the first guests. In the inner courtyard we could have a look at the picture (picture 2) how the building looked like before restoration and the plan (picture 3). We also looked at one of the 17 traditionally furnished rooms (picture 4). There are 4 suites as well. It has also a arabic session hall and an restaurant. The staff at the reception desk was very helpful to explain us everything about the old and new hotel.
