We arrived in this 3-star hotel in Douz in the evening after an exciting camel ride in the desert and left it at 3 am in order to catch the sunrise at a salty lake. The hotel lobby looked not bad in general, but we have been unpleasantly surprised by the quality of the room. It badly needed renovation, the furniture was old, the toilet not functioning properly, the door was not closing properly... I don't want even to comment the hotel restaurant where we had a buffet dinner and an early breakfast and the personnel didn't allow us to take for instance two desserts (the only good thing to eat!). The only good thing about the Touaeg hotel in Douz is its nice outside swimming pool and small garden around it as well as its relatively cheap prices. It is a hotel that is meant to be used for one night stays of tourist during their historic excursions in Tunisia so you cannot avoid it if you are on such excursions, just don't expect anything of good quality and you'll be fine!
Pool and its garden looked not bad
With this equipment, we were not stuck to a place and if, or any reason, we had to go a few meters or hundred of meters further, it was possible without even awaking those that were sleeping, given that the driver drove very slowly. We had to do that very seldom, but it is better to know that, if needed, you can do it.
In 1998, we always camped and in the neighbourhood of Nefta, a few kilometers away from the city, it was not difficult to find a quiet place to make our night bivouac. Two if us slept inside the Landrover and two in the folding tent on top of the car.
