Inside the ghurfas
Metameur, Tunisia

Perhaps not the typical hotel, but this is where you spend the nights if you want to experience a ghurfa hotel.

As always the ghurfas represent modest interiors without any furniture.
Instead of furniture, the ghurfas have had "tables", "chairs" and "beds" moulded as a part of the walls or floors.
The effect can be great.
Metameur, Tunisia

The caretaker of the hotel is happy to appear on photos.
