We had an absolute bargain, £152 for 3 nights B&B, flights from Bristol and airport transfer all through Easyjet. Our transfer driver was waiting with my name outside the arrival gate, he drove us in a roadworthy jeep through the crazy scootered city. He had to pull up outside a cornered herbal spice shop, as you can't fit a car... More

Short version: incredible, peaceful, clean, very friendly and perfectly situated, you get a real "moroccan feeling" while being tucked away and relaxed. why would you stay anywhere else?! long version: all of the above, the hotel owner is now a good friend after my 4 days here, we where given plenty of privacy but also never felt like we could...

We have just come back from 4 nights in this lovely Riad. The owner, Mohammed, was a brilliant host and so kind and helpful. We turned up on our first evening with the wrong currency...... Such a kind man - gave us money and cooked us a delicious meal. The following day he took us to the local ATM (we... More

We stayed in this Riad in January 2016. It is in an excellent location for all of the main attractions of Marrakech, nestled amongst a series of narrow alleyways. We only had two days to explore the city and the owner, Mohammed, was determined to ensure that we made the most of our short trip. He took us in his... More

Lovely riad but 4 nights was just the right amount of time. Very central within the Medina, a bit intimidating at times but enabled us to experience the real Morocco. Great hosts, took us for dinner a couple of times and gave us directions etc when needed.

We stayed her for a week in November 2015. The owner Mohamed was delightful, very helpful with ideas and tips to get the best out of the city. He provides some very good trips some of the local highlights, we had a great time travelling to the Atlas mountains and to the coast. The rooms were more than adequate and... More

We visited for a long weekend and had a lovely time . Mohammad was a perfect host and achieves the balance of being attentive and unobtrusive at the same time.we could not fault his hospitality. We lost the keys he gave us but he was relaxed about it and replaced them promptly .we used the easy jet transfer and the... More

Marrakesh is a really vibrant fun place, and we always felt safe and welcome in the city. Like most big cities it has its good and bad bits, and is a complete change from the normal European cities. We stayed four nights at the Riad El Farah in October 2015, and wished we had booked for longer. It is well... More

My husband and I arrived in Marrakech on the 20 October for a week's stay at the Riad. Mohammed picked us up at the airport and I was so glad he did as I don't think we would have been able to find it. However with Mohammed's directions, we were easily able to find our way back after the first... More

Recently spent 4 nights at this Riad and what a unique experience. Sent in the back streets of the Medina and in walking distance of the bustling town. The owner Mohamed is the best host you are likely to meet, friendly, helpful and with lots of knowledge as what to see and do. We had him as a guild for... More
