to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary we headed to Riad farnatchi for a 4 day break, a mistake, it was so wonderfully relaxing and so exciting, that I wish we had been there a week at least! to be in the middle of the exotic melee of the old city with its Souks and museums only a short walk away,...

Finding it very hard to express how impressed we were with this Riad. We have travelled to many many places over the years and have never received such hospitality or personalised service as we did in Riad farnatchi. It started on arrival, collection at airport, then no check in per se, no reception just warm hand towels to freshen up... More

Firstly Marrakesh is an amazing place. It is the most 'foriegn' place I have ever been. As a tourist you will recieve a lot of attention from the maket stall holders but it is all done with great humour and wit. We never felt threatened or unsafe. As for the Riad Farnatchi I will struggle to find enough superlatives. We... More

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.

riad farnatchi provided the perfect balance - of privacy and service, of modern and traditional style. we only saw the staff when we needed them and they delivered all services promptly with a kind smile. although I believe there were several other guests during our staying there, we only ever saw one other couple, making it feel like truly a...
