Albabenshal Heritage Lodge
On the main square, Siwa, Matruh, Egypt
Nestled below the jagged ruins of Shali, this eco-lodge has been designed to blend with the architecture of the 13th-century fortress. Constructed of karshif and palm trunks, it merges traditional aesthetics with modern comfort and amenities. Guest rooms are spread out on three levels and linked by staircases and small shady courtyards. Enjoy a drink or a meal on the terrace in the evening while watching the activities of the shops and street hawkers below.
- traditional styling and architecture blend in with the surroundings
- prime location right in the heart of town
- no air-conditioning
- there's no outdoor space except the roof terrace and the small, high-sided courtyards, which can be a little stifling
