Our family does a lot of traveling every year (3 moths out of a year). This hotel/riad is by far the nicest we have ever stayed in. I appreciated all the details - the tassel key rings, carved wooden doors, the lime plaster walls, the thick drapes, the plaster carvings, the tufted beige colored chairs in the dining room &...

Riad Farnatchi was heaven on earth after a busy day bustling around the Medina. It was almost unbelievable that behind the high walls and literally minutes from the souks you could not hear a sound other than the trickling of the very welcoming pool - the perfect way to cool off and chill out. Once in my suite the tranquility... More

I cannot pretend that this review is anything other than astonishing. Having spoken with you several times a day myself and talked you through all the options for your trip, from restaurants to sightseeing, via carpet sellers and the finer details of malfunctioning taxi meters, I was frankly shocked to read that there was anything that was less than perfect...

This Riad is amazing and the attention to detail throughout is impeccable. We stayed for a long weekend in suite three and after walking around the souks there was nothing better than coming back to the tranquility of Farnatchi and enjoying some homemade pastries and mint tea. In our room we were provided with jelebas and slippers which we relaxed... More

From the moment I walked into the Riad Farnatchi with our group of friends and family, I was enchanted. We were so excited about our beautiful suites that we spent the first hour checking out each other's rooms, which were decorated in their own unique way. What struck me was the care with which each item, piece of furniture, color,... More

I enjoyed a great 2 nights staying at Riad Farnatchi, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and attended not only to requests in the Riad but also helped us get the most out of Marrakech. The Riad is stunning and rooms extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend a stay.

I enjoyed two nights at Riad Farnatchi after three days trekking in the Atlas Mountains. It is the perfect solution for some peaceful relaxation and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the souks.

I stayed at Riad Farnatchi in February for five days. From the moment I arrived from the airport, their hospitality and attention to detail were exceptional. I stayed in Suite 8, and it was enormous. It has a beautiful living area, log fireplace (which was lit for me each night), balcony, comfortable bed and pillows, separate shower and toilet, sunken... More

I have just returned from Morocco and from 2 nights at Riad Farnatchi with a couple of friends. I don't normally write reviews but our time at the Riad was exceptional so I thought I would get online and write one!

I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your whole Moroccan experience and that the guide that we set you up with in the Atlas mountains was a success. We certainly try to make sure that there is nothing that we cant organise for our guest, if Marrakech allows it we can normally find it! Thank you ever so... More
