This old faithful, located on Hwy 23, 10km northwest of Al Wasil, has returned to a sleepy hollow after its brief flowering as a trendy little sleepover. Simple rooms with elaborate furniture crowd the courtyard and a window in the restaurant makes an attempt at open-kitchen dining. The adjoining motel-style block is more modern but less characterful.
The hotel was formerly known as Al Qabil Rest House. Desert trips can be arranged from here.
