The city is bustling but the riad is a haven from everything. We felt like we were the only guests there, even though the place was fully booked. Breakfast was served by the pool or on the roof terrace. Our two boys (aged 4 and 1) were spoilt rotten by all the staff. The location is close enough to walk... More

I have been back to this Riad 3 times now, the staff are amazing - I love them all. The Riad is stunning, quiet, peaceful and very very special. This is a real luxury and a proper gem. You will want for nothing here, nothing is too much trouble and you will get spoilt rotten. Breakfast by the pool or... More

This hotel is fabulous. The room; top class, the staff and service; I cannot say enough - they are AMAZING; especially Najili and Saida. The food was top class as well…. Why 4 stars then? Unfortunately, it is not about the hotel perse but I hope this review will help the owner James to apply some pressure to UNESCO who... More

Such a lovely escape from the riad. The rooms are huge and the service is absolutely top notch. The roof terrace is great for sun bathing and the small pool they have is in the shade which means it keeps cool and is such a welcome refreshing dip! Perfect location and I would definitely recommend this hotel. Food was excellent... More

It was so hard to choose where to stay as there were so many Riad's, so decided that I couldn't go too far wrong if i chose somewhere off Mr&Mrs Smith. Best decision I could have made! I feel I completely lucked out - Riad Farnatchi was perfect in every single detail. There was no question no matter how simple... More

Loved this place; luxury hidden down a narrow dusty lane. The welcome, the food, the suite with comfortable beds, hot water bottle and under floor heating in the shower room. The sunken bath. The wood fires in our sitting room and dotted around the house where we could have breakfast in odd corners or secluded dining in the evening. Not... More

To James, Murad, Saida and the rest of the team.... Thank you! You gave us the perfect retreat to enjoy our 10th Anniversary. We have not had a relaxed and enjoyable time like this in a very long time. Thank you for all the brilliant recommendations... La Comptoir, Dar Yacut, Le Jardin, Nomad.... Thank you for always having someone there... More

Once you walk 10 minutes from the Jemaa-el-Fna Square to the Riad, it is like heaven on earth. Beautiful property and huge rooms. Had the best hammam experience there. Having breakfast by the pool every morning set the day off right. Service is excellent, especially Najla, who arranged tours, dinners, transport to the train station, and everything else in between.... More

A quiet and calm place in the middle of the Marrakech Medina - spacious , quite and private with only 9 suites , a very nice dining room. two courtyards, one of them with a pool. When entering the Riad you feel made home , James and his staff are good hosts.

If one is looking to experience life in the medina of Marrakech and experience the souks up close, then one should not stay at the large hotels or resorts outside the medina. The only place to stay is at a Riad. There are many. After looking at several websites and reading reviews at Trip Advisor, we settled on Riad Farnatchi... More
