One of the oldest inns of Merzouga, Auberge Tombouctou was built according to the spirit of the ancient caravanserais: an immense Moroccan common room accommodates hikers in the evening, wayfarers, and guests, where one talks about his adventures, discoveries and outdoor experience...
A bivouac of comfortable Berber tents is put up for extra-mural accommodation. There is also the possibility of camel rides, to go contemplate both sunrise and sunset or simply to explore the desert. City slickers will be transported far away from the stress of urban life and closed space.
Tombouctou hostel is located in Merzouga, in the heart of a palm oasis.
Directions: Pass through Erfoud Rissani (paved road) - Direction Merzouga - Follow indications to the hostel (3 kms before Merzouga village).

"On the edge of the Sahara, a wonder."
If you still in Morocco but want to experience the Sahara by Camel or Off-Road vehicle, or just to relax from a long journey, this is a place to come too. Great hotel with a beautiful swing pool and spa.
"Good and comfortable"
This is the kind of hotel that are made for one or two nights. Those who really wants to feel the sensation to explore the Saara desert. Very famous to have received some Hollywood starts during their filming period. The rooms has a good space. Breakfast has not so many varieties, but it's ok. The food in general is good, speciality the Moroccan food. They have a delicious Tajine that you won't regret to ask. Their past wasn't good, not salty and made with a industrial tomato puree. The pool is fantastic!! Feels like a real oasis. Wifi is free and open, but in some rooms the signal is very weak. Unfortunately, my visit was during the Ramadan - when the local people aren't so friendly despite of the fasting period. So, the SPA was open only at nights. In general, staff are very friendly!
"A historic and very comfortable kasbah"
The rooms here are very simple but very clean and comfortable, with exposed beam and reed ceilings and stone floors. This kasbah was built in 1944 as a reception hall (rather than a fortification as is the function of most kasbahs). It was later converted into a hotel / guest house but retained the original architectural detail.
"Good Location, poor service"
The hotel itself, and the location right on the edge of the dunes was brilliant. However, when checking out their card machine wasn't working, and the staff were not very helpful. The nearest cash machine is about half an hours drive away, luckily we got sorted but a big hotel should be more aware this is pretty important!
"Nice hotel next to Sahara sand dunes"
We were impressed by the location next to and walking distance to Sahara sand hills for sunset and sunrise views. Excellent meals both dinner and breakfast. My advice is for guest when coming to this hotel make sure to book half board because this hotel is in the middle of nowhere, rooms excellent .wifi ok. (We used cameltrektours.com. For transport around Morocco. Best company to deal with, for van/4wheel drive or car hire with driver. Ask for Hamid very knowledgable and courteous driver. Contact Moha 00212661821652.).
