We arrived at El Fenn for a long weekend with a group of friends. We could have stayed a month. This beautiful riad in the heart of the bustling medina is seriously chic. We spent a couple of days floating from our gorgeous bedroom through the lush cool courtyards, along marbled hall ways passing art, and colour and flowers, up... More

I've delayed writing this review because if my wife and I ever return to Marrakech, we would be VERY sad if El Fenn was booked up. But then again, with the numerous wonderful reviews of the property on Tripadvisor, I would only be sharing in the blame. El Fenn is incredibly cool and stylish, but in an understated, very confident... More

Ideal for those who love to travel like a jetsetter and believe in really good taste. The rooms are very confortable, not to mention they are all different and this hotel is... More

My Boyfriend & I stayed at El Fenn for 5 nights & found the whole experience so magical that going out into the real world of Marrakech streets & Medina was far too real! Sadly due to the lack of tourists ( Muslim country) it was a bit too quiet( everywhere) but the restaurant was excellent & rightfully expensive, pool... More

We had a room in the main courtyard on the ground floor. It was beautiful with a huge marble bathroom and eclectic furniture. The whole riad was amazing to explore and we enjoyed finding the hidden corners of the hotel. The rooftop space with pool and bar was fantastic to relax, and the view of marrakech and hearing the call... More

First time in Marrakesh. El Fenn was an incredible retreat away from the hustle and bustle - but close enough for when you fancied the bustle and hustle. The staff were fantastic - really helpful, good fun, great ideas on what to do. They really thought about the type of people we were and would appeal to us. The bedrooms... More

I first saw El Fenn on Mr & Mrs Smith and had been wanting to stay there for awhile. Let me tell you...it exceeded my expectations! The Medina is a crazy place because you don't know what's behind each door. It could be a humble space or an incredible riad...in this case an incredible riad. What I am saying is...... More

Stayed at El Fenn for a second time - and nothing has changed my mind that this is the nicest place to stay in the Marrakech Medina. It's full of cool art, the staff are amazingly helpful (some have been there a long time - good sign!) and the rooms are amazing. If you can push to an imperial suite... More

We loved El Fenn. It gives the true riad experience of a peaceful and gracious hidden escape from the bustling streets. The design is so beautiful yet seems effortless, full of color and natural elements and materials. Ceilings sweep and the art is fun. The staff is impeccably gracious and helpful. Our kids loved the turtles, the swimming pools, the... More
