to Telouet by car : There is a turnoff from the main road Marrakesh - Ouarzazate, from where it is about 20 kilometres to Telouet. The turnoff
is well signposted, but the road itself is a bit harder to find. This last
bit of road is small and has a few potholes, so without 4WD it takes about
an hour to get there.
Accommodation and hotels in Telouet : after the tiny road,
Telouet is surprisingly big (it has about 15.000 inhabitants) and there are
several hotels, allthough most tourbuses and 4WD jeeps of tour companies
are not staying overnight.
Hotel Auberge Telouet : The new part has some very
nice rooms with walls consisting of huge stones. A double room with toilet
and shower costs 150 Dirham and 300 dirham including breakfast and dinner.
It is a bit annoying that the owner Ahmed supposes that tourists need
a guide and thus orders a boy to stay the whole time with you (even during
dinner and breakfast). It is meant as a service, but we found it rather
disturbing and told finally the boy that we prefered to visit the kasbah
on our own. If you don't want this guide, you should tell it him as soon
as possible instead of getting annoyed like we did.
The Glaoui Kasbah of Telouet: There is a guard who has
the key to the entrance and will take you inside and give some historical
explanations for a fee of 10 - 20 dirhams. The most recent part of the Kasbah
has some very nicely decorated rooms, the oldest part is completely in ruins.
