Amy Adejokun Section editor

Despite its 4 stars, the Ramla hotel is closer to a 3 star hotel by French standards, but it continues to benefit from the ancient Tunisian classification system. However, it is a charming, middle of the range, 3 star Tunisian hotel. Opened in 1994, it undergoes regular renovations. It has kept a traditional architectural style and shows a taste for a 30's-style interior mixed with oriental touches, as seen in the mashrabiyas in almost every room, the zelliges, and the mosaic arabesques. Quaint bordering on kitsch but full of charm, the Ramla provides a friendly place to stay for guests who are looking for a decent level of comfort without any ostentatious luxuries.

    Location 5.12 /10

    As most hotels in Tozeur, the Ramla is located on the heights of the ledge, on the palm grove side of the touristic neighbourhood. In fact, it provides direct access to the palm grove. It takes around 5 minutes by car to get to the souk, the medina, and Tozeur airport. The town of Nefta is 12.5 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    All of the 120 guest rooms have air conditioning and include a television set. However, they don't all have a mini bar or an Internet connection. For these added options you'll have to book one of the 6 suites or 6 apartments, which boast an added touch of charm with their mashrabiya-style windows. The simple interior is slightly quaint but the accommodation units are spacious and highly functional. Some have a magnificent terrace with an unobstructed view of the palm grove. The apartments made up of 3 rooms with an entrance area and garden access offer perfect accommodations for a family of 5. They even include a small kitchen area.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The architecture of the Rambla is typical of the first hotels built in Tozeur, following the same layout and abundant use of yellow bricks on white facades and dome ceilings. The hall tries hard to seem luxurious, with ample use of marble and stucco, baccarat imitation chandelier, decorated ceilings, and oriental art. Using a mix of styles to give an old fashioned look to the setting, the hotel has kept its 'roaring 20's' style, with art deco furniture in the bar and hanging light fixtures in the restaurant. Around the clover-shaped swimming pool, various areas with deckchairs and sculpted wooden poster beds make for an unusual and quiet setting with a discreet snack bar. An enjoyable feature is the hotel's proximity to the palm grove, which makes the area surrounding the swimming pool nice and cool in the evenings. In the garden, among the palm trees and bougainvillea, small units showing the same architectural style house most of the rooms, suites, and apartments. It gives the impression of having one's own private villa.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    To get to the restaurant, guests have to walk past a surprising reconstituted Arab tent depicting the nomad way of life. The restaurant is very classy, with pale green woodwork and mosaics of flowers and typical Tunisian birds. Art deco lighting fixtures hang from the ceiling and look like something made by the Daum brothers. There are numerous paintings depicting the local culinary tradition. Local cuisine is actually on offer here, with specialities such as couscous and Tunisian tajine, Berber pizzas, chorba... However, the buffet also caters for European guests, with less spicy dishes. You will see that the clientele here is mostly Tunisian, a welcome change of setting for foreign guests who'll find it hard to resist the plethora of tasty dishes and colourful pastries. Obviously, you can order a bottle of Vieux Magon, preferably red, which is just as good as some of its French counterparts. This is where the 3 daily meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are served.

    To know

    A horse-drawn cart will take you into town and the reception staff can arrange for car rentals and organize various outings. The nightclub is currently reserved for hotel guests, which ensures the hotel remains a quiet establishment.

      • Location 10.0

      With its orange walls, ochre bricks, and Hispano-Moorish facade, the Sarra has the potential to really impress. Located on the hillside in the tourist zone, it enjoys one of the finest views of the palm grove and golf course. However, when you enter the park and its unkempt garden, you might well find yourself wondering if the place is still in business, which is a real pity. The hotel manager extends a relaxed welcome in the reception area in an attempt to inject a sense of warmth into the establishment, which once enjoyed a certain prestige. It is well suited to backpackers, and although it claims a 3 star rating, 2 stars would be a more realistic assessment.

      • Location 10.0

      The Hafsi Hotel has lost much of its old splendour, which is a real pity! Ideally, the refacing and renovation work carried out in 2008 should have restored the building's lovely colours. Despite a friendly welcome at the reception desk, the setting is disappointing with its gloomy colours and outdated furniture. Like the first hotels that were built in Tozeur, the Hafsi would look a lot better if it were to undergo proper refurbishment work. However, it does have a backpacker's charm to it that some may find pleasant. The 3 stars it boasts were awarded back in 1973!

      • Value for money 8.14
      • Location 4.75

      Formerly part of the Abou Nawas chain, this, the largest hotel in Tozeur, was bought in 2005 by the Mhiri family - the founders and owners of the El Mouradi brand, which now owns 15 upmarket establishments in Tunisia. Following major renovations, the El Mouradi Tozeur reopened in late 2008. It is housed in a huge white block that dominates the tourist resort (as far as the hotels are concentrated and not the main tourist attractions) of the more elegantly named La Corniche. One of the hotel's major positive points, and something which comes as a pleasant surprise in a hotel of this size, is the warm and spontaneous welcome you'll receive from the management. The El Mouradi is now seen by locals and Tunisian visitors as an essential part of any visit to the area. Far from the image you might have of a Saharan hotel, this one actually follows consistent international standards, much to the comfort of its cosmopolitan clientele.
