We chose the Riad Farnatchi from the Mr&Mrs Smith guide and found it to be even better than the rave review we had seen on our research. The building is magnificent with the very best of local artisan work, the interior designs are exquisite, the staff hand picked by Lynn the hotel director are the best staff I have encountered...

Just returned from Morocco, where we spent a few days at the wonderful Riad Farnatchi in Marrakech. From the moment we arrived the staff simply couldn't do enough for us (bags silently whisked to our suite while we were given a tour of the Riad) and the place itself is stunning - a beautiful, sympathetic conversion of 2 buildings into...

Riad Farnatchi is an amazing place where to stay while in Marrakech. We stayed at other Riads but we could only be disappointed: nothing can compare to Farnatchi. Why is that? The peaceful atmosphere? Yes, of course. The beautiful rooms? Yes again. The excellent food served at any time? Definitely. The service? Above all. What is indeed special about Riad... More

This was my third trip to Farnatchi - I have stayed there with friends, alone and with colleagues and each time I have found nothing to fault. It's easy to find somewhere really chic in Marrakesh - the city is awash with stylish places - but there is nowhere with such amazing, polite staff that make your staff really special.... More

The Riad is stunning, rooms are spacious and luxurious. The staff is very courteous and attentive. However, for its price, we found some glitches that you should be aware of. First, we went during winter and our room was VERY cold, despite of having the fireplace on all day. The Hotel could not find an electric heather when demanded. Second,... More

Riad Farnatchi is in a superb location in the heart of the Medina. The Riad itself is simply stunning. The Rooms are amazing, the staff are unbelievable, the Hammam relaxing and the food delicious. I would not change one single thing. The staff could not be more helpful and even offered to guide us to locations after they finished work.... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Riad Farnatchi and had a wonderful experience. First and foremost, we highly recommend a riad rather than a hotel in Marrakech. Although we usually stay at 5-star hotels around the world, we most certainly would have missed experiencing the true culture of Marrakech, and its thriving medina, had we opted for a hotel....

We stayed at Riad Farnatchi for a few days over Christmas, and I can genuinely say that it's simply one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Farnatchi is an oasis of paradise and tranquility in the middle of a frantic city. There are quite honestly no faults with this place. With only five suites - all of which... More

Another glowing review from another more than satisfied guest. Rooms were excellent, baths sumptuous and food divine - you must eat in at least once... The property is small, refined and personal - the epitome of Riad luxury... Finally, the icing on the cake - The staff. Rarely will you find staff of such high calibre. Somebody somewhere understands the... More

The website images just don't do the place justice. Its interiors are stunning, restrained and tasteful - unlike the glut of riads that seem to be trying to out-Marrakesh-theme each other. I know its been said here before, but its the service and people that make this place; Lynne is a font of knowledge on all things Morocco and pointed... More
