Hotels and Restaurants
Ceuta has a fairly balanced level of hotel rooms, compared to the demand. Calling ahead for a room is a good virtue in most of Spain during summer time- Ceuta is no exception here. Considering how much wealthier Ceuta apperars than Morocco, hotels here are surprisingly affordable. Ceuta's phone system is part of the Spanish system. Calling internationally, dial (international code) + 34 + phone number indicated.
Eating out is not expensive- and if you come from Morocco it is a mild introduction to European price level. Offerings are quite good, and there are a good offering of international restaurants. You won't be the first tourist appreciating the novelty of eating Chinese while you're in Spanish in Africa.

From Europe, your choice is limited to one of the ferries running after schedules (this also applies to the "fast ferry"). If you come from Morocco, your choice is simple: Crossing the border can only be done by foot or in your own vehicle.
