Yes, it is not the most modern. But unlike any other hotel I have stayed in in Tunisia outside of Tunis, this one actually has heat, hot water, functioning plumbing, towels, TP, soap, .... As such it is a pleasure. Besides these basics that one may otherwise take for granted, the staff is extremely friendly, the wifi works fairly well even in your room, the buffet meals are quite convenient and sufficient, and the balcony with mountain and starry night views is a lovely touch. I would happily enjoy the roaring fireplace in the lobby if only there were less smokers. The only drawback I can see is that the town is so far from anything that it takes forever to get to the hotel. But once you do, you will want to stay a while, if only to recover from the drive or from other hotels in Tunisia.
