by call_me_rhia

It's one of the larger underground houses (troglodyte homes) turned into a hotel, There are 145 for 20 rooms and a restaurant and bar. I can't comment on the rooms though, since I just wanted to visit the location.

Unique Qualities: It's planet Tatooine here. Hotel Sidi Driss is where the interiors of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru's house were filmed in Star Wars. Strictly for die-hard fans or tour groups.

Address: Old Matmata
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: following the road southwest out of Gabes, direction New Matmata (you'll see signs showing Les Troglodytes )
Phone: (05) 230005
Theme: Hotel
