I turned up in this sleepy village, late one night without a reservation. Despite my impromptu visit the family who ran the La Fibule d'Or went out of their way to accommodate me and even kicked a worker out of his room to allow me to stay the night!
The home is built in a traditional style and may seem basic by western standards. However the rooms are clean and very characterful. There is no heating and it gets pretty cold in January. The showers are pointless. There is "occasional" wifi downstairs. The family don't speak much English.
At 300dH per night including a good dinner, a very nice breakfast and amazing views over the kasbah this is an excellent choice.
Most people tend to stay in Ait Ben Haddou for only one night. I stayed for two nights and I recommend an extra day or two if you have time. There is not much to see other than the Kasbah but the village has a very sleepy, relaxing atmosphere that makes you slow right down. It will also give you the opportunity to see the Kasbah at both dawn and dusk.
