Hotel description
We offer simple clean rooms, dormitory and camping options at affordable prices. We are located near the north edge of town, far enough from downtown to be peaceful but close enough to be convenient. We are only a short stroll to the best dunes in the area and the intersection of various caravan routes. We are about 150 meters north of the Flamme de la Paix monument and the camel market.
