This themed Star Wars hotel closely resembles Luke Skywalker's Tatooine home. The Hotel Sidi Driss, located in Matmata in the south of Tunisia, is sure to be a holiday destination and hard core fan hub. While the area does not offer much in terms of sight seeing or modern amenities, the unearthly subterranean accommodation has rooms available at only $10 USD a night.

George Lucas's sci-fi franchise 'Episode IV: A New Hope' and 'Episode II: Attack of the Clones' were actually filmed at the hotel to depict Skywalker's childhood home. What makes it most interesting is that rather than building a Star Wars hotel, this is the real deal. The area was dug out by refugees centuries ago in an attempt to avoid hostile attacks.
