A lot has already been said about this Riad. It is a beautiful, cool, peaceful place to stay, close to Jeema El-Fna, and within the Kasbah. Easy to get to most of the main places to visit within the Medina. Mohamed is very gregarious and I do understand that might make this not the right place for some, but he... More

Right in the medina this Riad is 10 minutes or less from the main square, right in the Kasbah and very keenly priced. As others have suggested, either call Mohamed to pick you up or get a taxi as far as you can then ring him to come and find you. After a day or so we were able to... More

Great stay at Riad El Farah, the host Mohammed was fantastic. Like many others i would also advise you contact Mohammed an ask him to pick you up from the airport, you won't find it on your own no matter how good the map is. 10 minutes walk to the main square, 5 minutes from Bahia and Badia palace's. Mohammed... More

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
