Hotels and alternatives
There are many small hotels, dead cheap and clean, yet fantastically basic. Some good hotels are also found here. Chefchaouen has started to become more and more popular, so a bit into the night, finding a room can be difficult.

Restaurants and alternatives
There are few restaurants compared to the large number of hotels, and most seem to be a bit under the standard elsewhere in Morocco. The reason for this? Many tourists here need only a room where they can sleep, eat fruit and vegetables bought in the market. And smoke hashish in privacy.

Limited to hotels and their guests. Roof terraces are popular hangouts, but it all depends on the guests.

Change Money
There are some banks in the modern parts of town.

Chefchaouen is well served by buses and shared taxis. Taxis are strongly recommended, they can save you hours up here in the mountains, especially when you travel up to Chefchaouen.

Even if Chefchaouen could seem like a liberal spot for smoking hashish, remember that there are plenty of incidents where the police has arrested Westerners for possession of hashish in this part of Morocco.
