Guesthouses and B&Bs
Association Du Vieux Ksar
For a different and very atmospheric experience you could rent a room in a house, or indeed a whole house in the old ksar – these are beautiful and simple traditional houses dating back as far as the 9th century...
This hotel was in the last stages of renovation at the time of writing but was shaping up to be a great little place...
Signposted off the Taghit road. Looks fine from the outside but is run down and spartan with rather cramped dorms and the showers aren’t the cleanest.
Camping La Palmeraie
Centrally located next to the Hôtel Gourara with clean ablutions, hot water, a dining hut and a kitchen. The owner can organise camel rides, hiking, traditional folk evenings and the like.
Camping Roses De Sable
This is a lovely place set in a large garden where you can sleep in a zeriba under the shade of a palm tree or in a room (each one named after an oasis in the region) in the pretty bungalow at the back...
Close to the centre of the town of Taghit, on the road heading south, right up against the sand dunes. There are basic toilets and showers, a kitchen, and plans to construct some zeribas (palm huts).
Owned by the proprietor of M’Zab Tours this is an enchanting guesthouse in the heart of the palmeraie ...
Gite Djenane Malek
Cute rooms and a terrace with spectacular views over the palmerie and out into the desert make this a good choice. However service and facilities aren't quite up to scratch, and the caged animals might distress some travellers.
Grand Hotel Touristique El Anssar
Rooms here are large with balconies but feel rather dark; thankfully they are enlivened by such delights as giant glossy waterfall posters and plastic flowers. There’s a restaurant, salon de thé (tea room) and parking...
This is the only place to stay in town and although nondescript it is clean and welcoming. There are 11 simple and airy rooms overlooking the main street, and a decent restaurant. The next closest accommodation is at Béchar, 114km to the south.
Signposted just off the main road 1km towards Beni Abbès, this place has air-con rooms looking out onto an interior garden but it feels soulless and neglected...
This place has bland rooms (nicer, quieter ones with air-con available for DA1000) with shared bathrooms leading off blue and white mosaic-tiled corridors...
Hotel De La Palmeraie
The rather grubby exterior on a busy road doesn’t look very promising but inside it is a different story...
Hotel Du Gare
A hop and a skip away from the gare routière this place is convenient and reasonably priced, with a selection of airy double rooms and very welcoming management. There’s hot water in the winter.
Hôtel El Boustan
East of the centre of town on the road to the ksar, the state-run El-Boustan is El-Goléa’s main hotel but certainly not the nicest...
Hotel El Boustane
About 700m past the Hotel El-Anssar also on the right, this place is a multicoloured explosion; the lobby, with its swirly patterned sofas, clashing carpets and giant fish tank, leads to an orange-floored hallway off which there are smallish rooms wit...
Hotel El Djanoub
This is the only top-end hotel in Ghardaïa but it doesn’t really deserve that distinction...
Built by Fernand Pouillon in the 1950s the Gourara is slightly dilapidated these days, but what it lacks in up-to-date comforts in makes up for in romantic atmosphere...
This small and very friendly place is a good choice with a cosier feel than most. Rooms are clean and comfortable with televisions, fridges and air-con and there’s a small terrace with a nice selection of cacti overlooking the main street.
Hotel Ksar Massine
Out of town near the airport, Ksar Massine has good facilities and comfortable rooms...
Hotel Le Rym
This is a very welcoming place. The rooms are nothing special but are roomy and clean, and lead off a bright airy corridor adorned with traditional carpets, paintings and photographs of Algeria...
Hotel Le Tassili
Look for the blue neon signs opposite the Mosque de Ifri just east of the town centre. This is an old hotel dating from the colonial era...
On rue 1 Novembre between quatre chemins and the SNTV bus station. This is a sparklingly clean place and the swishest digs in Ouargla. The large rooms have high ceilings, plenty of light and seriously comfortable beds...
Hotel Maghreb Arabe
Opposite the new bus station on the Taghit road, this is a large three-story place with a good restaurant, air-con, spotless rooms and a very friendly patron who is happy to dole out advice about worthwhile sights in the region.
