Hotels and alternatives
There are a few very basic hotels on the western side of the river (about where you would arrive with a car), but none are particularly great on value. Camping is also possible here. Most people make a visit to Aït Benhaddou while they spend their nights in Ouarzazate.

Restaurants and alternatives
The basic hotels also serve basic food. As is the case with hotel rooms, value is not great.

Change Money
Nothing. Do this in Ouarzazate.

Taxis for hire from Ouarzazate, at inflated prices. Rented cars (easy in Ouarzazate) is only advisable if you have other destinations as well.

Rumours tell that there is bilharzia in the river you have to cross to get to Aït Benhaddou. Be careful not to swim, nor to wade.
