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

The decor was clean, comfortable, cosy and traditional. small touches gave it a real feel of home. Great location to all local amenities, with a short walk to the main... 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

We've stayed in riad el faris for a week. The riad is nice decorated with eye for details. Every day our room was cleaned. Very friendly staff and we got all the information we asked for. Breakfast was excellent with fresh made maroccian pancakes and orange juice. It has a great rooftop terrace, with a nice view over the neighbourhood.... More

I stayed for four nights with my dad in a twin room. Mahmoud and Nicole were very friendly, accommodating hosts with plenty of suggestions, showing us the nearest exchange and local landmarks to help us find our way back! The traditional riad with a courtyard is really lovely with a nice warm terrace. Breakfast was perhaps a little basic (bread... More

The Riad El Farah is a gem in the Marrakesh Kasbah area. It is the very perfect epitomisation of what you would expect from a riad in Marrakesh. It is small and friendly and decorated in true Moroccan style. The rooms are on the first floor surrounding an atrium. The communal ground floor is delightful and the roof terrace equally... More

We have just returned from a 4 night break to this excellent Riad set in the south of the Medina. The holiday was made for us by Mohammed who put up with our basic French and was so hospitable and friendly. He met us off the taxi from the airport and gave us a lovely Moroccan welcome with traditional mint... More
