ACCOMMODATION
Gone are the days when hotels in Libya
were restricted to a small handful of rundown government establishments where
there was always the danger of sudden eviction when a government delegation arrived
in town. A new breed of internationalstandard private hotels has swept through
northern Libya and, although top-end
hotels are nowhere to be found outside
Tripoli and Benghazi and budget hotels
remain conspicuous by their absence, midrange hotels are very comfortable and wellmaintained. In the south of Libya, Sebha
(p181) is the only place with a good range
of accommodation, although the combination of camps and hotels in Germa (p190),

Ubari (p192) and Ghat (p197) are also reasonable. Otherwise, people tend to sleep
in the desert under a canopy of stars (see
below).
In addition to hotels and hostels, there
are also well-run camps in the Saharan
oasis towns and, found along Libya’s coastline, qaryat as-siyahe (tourist villages) are
aimed at a Libyan clientele and offer proximity to the beach and a break from hotel
ambience.
In this era of escorted tours to Libya,
your choice of hotel will depend on the
company through whom you organise your
visit. Larger groups are likely to have little
choice and the information on individual
hotels throughout this book is designed
to give you some idea of what to expect.
Smaller groups may be able to lobby for
the hotel of their choice based on the information provided in this guide, although
you’ll need to give the tour company plenty
of notice.
Throughout this book, budget hotels and
hostels refer to places where dorm beds cost
5LD and a single/double in a hotel costs up
to 25/35LD. Midrange hotels and tourist
villages range from 35/40LD up to 75/90LD,
while top-end choices start from 90/100LD
and can go much higher.
Note that your passport will be held by
the hotel for the duration of your stay –
don’t forget to collect it when you leave.

ACCOMMODATION
Gone are the days when hotels in Libya
were restricted to a small handful of run-
down government establishments where
there was always the danger of sudden evic-
tion when a government delegation arrived
in town. A new breed of international-
standard private hotels has swept through
northern Libya and, although top-end
hotels are nowhere to be found outside
Tripoli and Benghazi and budget hotels
remain conspicuous by their absence, mid-
range hotels are very comfortable and well-
maintained. In the south of Libya, Sebha
( p181 ) is the only place with a good range
of accommodation, although the combina-
tion of camps and hotels in Germa ( p190 ),
Ubari ( p192 ) and Ghat ( p197 ) are also rea-
sonable. Otherwise, people tend to sleep
in the desert under a canopy of stars (see
below ).
In addition to hotels and hostels, there
are also well-run camps in the Saharan
oasis towns and, found along Libya’s coast-
line, qaryat as-siyahe (tourist villages) are
aimed at a Libyan clientele and offer prox-
imity to the beach and a break from hotel
ambience.

your choice of hotel will depend on the

Throughout this book, all quoted prices
for hotels and tourist villages are for rooms
with private bathroom and breakfast un-
less otherwise stated. A full list of abbrevia-
tions and icons used when giving prices and
hotel facilities can be found inside the front
cover of this book.
Camping
There are two kinds of camping possibilities
while in Libya. The first is to sleep in the Sa-
hara wherever your guide finds a secluded
spot. Sleeping under the stars in this way
is one of Libya’s great travel experiences
and you should do this at least once on
your tour. Remember, however, that desert
nights can drop below freezing from late
November until February (see p19 ). Tour
