I stayed here for 4 nights (during Ramadan) with my sister in law. We had chosen to stay here as other reviews on here had said how charming the Riad is and how friendly and helpful the owner was. I would recommend an airport transfer as we would never have found the Riad if we got a taxi, cars can't... More

This is a pleasant little Riad run by a nice man called Mohammed. He also lives there and with the help of a very tidy Berber lady keeps the establishment up to a very high standard. We really enjoyed our stay and my French got better by the day.

Really nice traditional Moroccan Riad. Rooms were lovely, clean and nicely decorated. The roof terrace was really nice to sit out on during the really hot times of the day with nice shady spots. Good location to get into the heart of the city in a few minutes walk. Breakfast was basic, Moroccan pancakes and lots of bread, jam, butter... More

My wife and I visited Marrakech in May 2014 for our 25th anniversary and what a magical place. Riad El Farah made it even more special, great location right in the heart of the city, with a short walk to all main attractions. The owner Mohamed is a great host and had made us feel at home. The breakfast was... More

A place you can call home while you are away from home. A beautiful and peaceful Riad tucked away from the extreme noise of Marrakech. If there is one place in this busy city to rest- it's definitely Riad El Farah. Mohamed, the owner of the riad is a beautiful soul himself. His open heart and welcoming attitude will make... More

We stayed for a week in mid-March. Staying in this riad, within the kasbah, gave us a real Moroccan experience but with the guidance and protection,.as required, from Mohamed the owner. Everything good about the riad and about Mohamed has already been said many times and we agree with it all. It only took us one orientation walk with Mohamed... More
