Geek Hotels

by Brita d'Agostino and Lewis Wallace

Hôtel Sidi Driss, Matmata, Tunisia

The Tunisian town of Matmata is riddled with troglodyte dwellings, vertical caves dug out by humans and turned into homes. The Hôtel Sidi Driss is one such desert delight.

Geek factor: Does the cave hotel look strangely familiar? The interior was used as a Star Wars filming location—it's the Lars' homestead on Tatooine.
