This hotel is to recommend as a stopover, to make a stop of a few days in Tozeur. Its equipements are simple, but its decoration, inspired from traditional palaces, enhances the overall impression.
At the end of the hotel zone of Tozeur, 3miles away from downtown and from the airport. Expect a 10 minute transfer.
The Ksar Djerid means "palace of the palm cove" ("djerid" being the palm tree leave in Arabic). Its architecture is inspired from fortified castles of the south of Tunisia: ochre façades decorated with geometric brick reliefs. You can also see elements of decoration inspired from the rest of the country: white and blue earthenware fountain in a patio, console table in wrought iron and antique style statue in the lobby.
Several features are in project: a covered swimming pool, an à la carte restaurant, and suites. With these new features, the hotel should have 4 Tunisian stars.
Built in 1996, the Ksar Djerid is presented in the form of a one story building with two interior courts, one of which has a patio with a fountain and the other a swimming pool. It forms a pool of 65x32 feet, extended by a space for children. Along the swimming pool, a terrace fitted out as a solarium stretches, but there are no gardens. It overlooks the hallways leading to the rooms: there is no escape to the exterior. Deckchairs and sunshades are provided for relaxation. In return, you must bring your own bath towel.
Most of the 90 rooms are fitted out to accommodate two adults and one child (1 double bed, and 1 sofa-bed). They are not very spacious (172 square feet for the smallest) and they do not have balcony, except for the suite whose beds are installed in wooden alcoves. As for the decoration, priority is given to simplicity (white walls, light wooden contemporary furniture) with a local note (rug with stylised motifs hung over the headboard). Each room has air conditioning, telephone (with operator), satellite television, minibar and a bathroom with a bathtub and a liquid soap dispenser.
The restaurant serves all three meals buffet-style. The room does not have a terrace other than the one that opens onto the swimming pool (for a few tables). You will therefore eat inside, in a decor of Berber pottery, coloured fabrics an columns decorated with mosaic tiles. In your plate, a simple choice in the morning (soft-boiled eggs, cooked meats, cheese, cereals and pastries), a bit more important for lunch and dinner (fish, meat, pasta, rice, vegetables, salads, fruits and pastries). Note: the traditional oven that is used to cook the Tozeur pizza (or matabga), bread dough filled with tomatoes, onions and peppers.
