We stayed at Riad el-Farah for 4 nights between Christmas and new year. I would advise you to email Mohamed and ask him to pick you up from the airport, as I don't think we'd have found it if he hadn't. He charges 20 euros for this service but it is worth it. Taxis can't enter the medina, so even... More

We stayed at Riad el Farah for 4 nights in early December on our first trip to the amazing city of Marrakech. We had an absolutely fantastic time, helped considerably by this lovely Riad and its charming and hospitable French-Moroccan owner, Mohamed. It is located at the Northern end of the Kasbah, in the Southern part of the Medina and... More

(tip below on walking to the riad) Well what can I say, for the total price of the EasyJet holiday this was a great “authentic” place to stay. I would recommend this to any of my friends or family staying in Marrakech. We stayed at the end of November for a budget, out-of-season break. It may not be to every... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of a BA deal. Definitely email ahead to get Mohammed to pick you up from the airport (€20). Finding it for the first by yourself is essentially impossible. You park up a few hundred metres away as cars can't get to the door. Walking down the alleys takes you into another world... More

We stayed in this Riad for four nights in October. The beds were very comfortable and the owner is friendly. The Riad only has four guest rooms, It is very quiet and relaxing. I recommend that you ask Muhammed to pick you up at the airport, since you could never find the Riad if you take a taxi. It is... More

This Riad is a little gem in the midst of the bustle and heat of Marrakech. Mohammed, the owner is delightful and very helpful. He gave us a tour of the surrounding area, making sure we had taken in the important landmarks to find our way back. The room was wonderful, very clean and beautifully decorated with coloured glass windows... More

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
