Hotels and alternatives
Hotels in this town reflect that it doesn't seem to get all too many travellers (despite having one of the most famous sights in the country: Mosque of Sidi Bou Makhlouf). Most places are basic and cheap, and the best hotel in town is only medium priced with corresponding amenities. All over, value for money is fortunately good.

Restaurants and alternatives
You can choose between a handful of OK restaurants, but there is nothing posh in Le Kef. But since these places aim at local clientele, or business that often return to town, they offer very good value for money.


Change Money
There are several banks where you can get cash withdrawals on your VISA or MasterCard, or exchange foreign currencies. There is always one bank open through the weekend.

Relatively good connections with all likely destinations, near and far. Le Kef has direct connections with buses to among many other Tunis, Sousse, Sfax, Bizerte, Gafsa and Kairouan.
Travelling to or from Le Kef, buses are the best option. Shared taxis cover less destinations.
The train must be the last option. Its station is a bit out of town, it covers less destinations, has few departures and is much slower than buses and shared taxis.
