For our first visit to Marrakech we don't think we could have done better than accept friends' recommendation and book three nights at Road Farnatchi. This was our first time in a Riad and I can now understand why everyone recommends a Riad in the Medina rather than a modern hotel in the new city. Our room was a suite... More

We stayed here for 5 days in January ready to spend our time visiting the sites of Morocco, which we did, but only when we could drag ourselves away from this wonderful Riad. We felt cherished by the staff, the beauty of the place, the log fires, the canopies at tea time, the food, everything. At night we had water... More

We had a wonderful three night stay in Farnatchi. Even though it was cold in Marrakech there was always a fire either in our room or downstairs and oh such excitement to find a hottie in your bed!! The staff were brilliant and really cared for us. We had dinner with them one night which was delicious, and we enjoyed... More

This riad is stellar in terms of service, facilities, location and food. Everything down to the smallest details are provided for you here and you will truly appreciate having such a beautiful respite from the chaos of the medina. The rooms are huge with fireplaces, free wifi, and Molton Brown amenities. The food here is amazing with generous portions. Enjoy... More

Everything great that has been previously written about this very special riad is true. We are well travelled and have stayed in some luxurious properties but the service and attention to detail was phenomenal. Every member of staff were exceptional in their understanding of what a guest requires. The breakfast was delicious, everything was so fresh. We had dinner twice... More

This was the third time we stayed in Riad Farnatchi and it will not be the last stay. Perfect Service. They treat you like a VIP family member. You feel cold in moroccan winter ? You get a crackling open fire and hot water bottle in your bed... You need help to find a good restaurant, tour guide, fashion guide,... More

From the moment of arrival you are made to feel special, a vip even. Wending your way through medieval streets preceded by men wheeling your luggage. A secret door is reached and you are ushered into a sublime paradise. Your cares ebb away as you cross a cool marble courtyard with rippling pool and are led to a sumptuous haven,... More

My partner and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Riad Farnatchi over New Year's, and the title says it all. Wow! What an amazing property. The riad is stunning, with beautifully decorated rooms (we stayed in Suite 8, overlooking the pool), several courtyards and alcoves, sitting areas, a restaurant and large roof terrace. It was truly an oasis from... More

Riad Farnatchi is without doubt one of the best hotels this particular reviewer has experienced. Standards are high across the board; James Wix and his team seamlessly combine a cool Moroccan style with home-from-home comforts. Suites are large, luxurious and inviting, full of the sort of little touches one often craves but doesn't often get from expensive but ultimately rather... More

Riad Farnatchi really is in its own oasis of calm and quiet, yet in the perfect location to step out for dinner, visit the souks and experience the hustle and bustle of beautiful Marrakech. Amazing staff, superb food and luxurious rooms makes for an absolutely outstanding stay. I would highly recommend and will definitely go back.
