Hotels and alternatives
Nothing fancy here, and only one hotel offers mid-class standards, but then at a price. There are some simple hotels, the kasbah does accept visitors (arrange in advance from the Hôtel Foucauld in Marrakech. Imlil has also a good number of its residents renting out rooms for hire. Standards are then very, very basic.

Restaurants and alternatives
Some simple restaurants offering everything from OK to very good food. But do not expect fancy surroundings, and do not get upset from prices that are about twice of what you would pay elsewhere in Morocco.

Change Money
It is best to have done in Marrakech to the north or Taroudannt if you're coming from the south.

There are occasional buses and slightly more frequent shared taxis running at least between Asni and Imlil, and sometimes directly from Marrakech.

There are several companies in town that will rent guides for every possible trek in the mountains.
