Hotels and alternatives
2 hotels in town. One budget, the other mid-range, both offer fair value for money. The best hotel, the Sufetula is undergoing renovations, and will not reopen until long after our last visit in September 2005.

Restaurants and alternatives
A small, but adequate, number of restaurants. Most are also licensed.

Change Money
One hotel in town, that will give the usual services of exchanging foreign currencies and giving cash on your VISA or Master Card.

Buses run for Kasserine, Sidi Bou Zid, Tunis, Gafsa and Sfax. Shared taxis cover only Sidi Bou Zid and Kasserine.
The train has no passenger services.
