200 words is not enough to describe our excellent experience at El Fenn. The Riad's architecture, the interior design and hotel location are fantastic. What is most impressive is the staff. I want to thank Adil, Abdel, Belaid, Hicham who helped us coordinate impressive day excursions, but most importantly helped us everyday with 2 lost luggage (the whole week) and... More

Simply put, there is no place in the world like El Fenn. The hotel is completely camouflaged in the dusty pink walls of the medina – you would never know that behind its anonymous exterior lies the most lush oasis of a hotel you'll have ever stepped foot in. And once in, you would never know that the bustling chaos... More

On entering a large wooden door in a lane way a stunning hallway led us to a courtyard that was lush with lovely reclining furniture one could lull on, sipping tea while checking in. From that moment you arrive service in the hotel is impeccable. We were led to our family suite - a stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, lounge,... More

All details are accounted for at El Fenn... Service is excellent, the staff here is absolutely amazing. Design is lovely. Already looking forward to returning soon. Feels like home. In a city that can feel quite overwhelming and hectic at times, you can truly relax inside the hotel. It's small enough to feel acquainted to all the familiar faces roaming... More

The El Fenn is everything that you hope for in a boutique hotel; the rooms are lush, the staff attentive, and you feel that you've walked into your own private mansion in the middle of the desert. Each of the rooms at the El Fenn is beautifully and uniquely decorated with its own vibe. We traveled with a very large... More

Absolutely loved staying here! Beautiful grounds and courtyards, lovely pools and gorgeous rooms! The staff were lovely and helpful and the food was delicious. A 5 minute walk into the souks and 10 minutes from the main square. Would 100% stay here again!

Great style. The connection to the art scene, through Venessa Branson, means that throughout the Riad there are interesting pieces of art/photographs. Many nooks and sitting areas to explore. Our son enjoyed visiting the turtles by the fire place in one of the reading areas. We arranged to be at a nearby Riad (El Fenn managed) they refer to as... More

A MUST! One of the coolest hotels we've ever stayed in. Design, food, staff-all was first class. The rooms were so incredibly well appointed. I wanted to buy everything in there for my home. Don't forget to try the delicious olive oil. Best we've ever had (took 4 cans home). Beautiful place! Also, the location is perfectly situated within the... More

What a wonderful, truly beautiful place to stay. We stay here on every visit to Marrakech, several times a year. Breakfast on the roof terrace is the perfect place to start the day. The staff are fantastic and incredibly helpful. We highly recommend this hotel!

From the moment our taxi pulled thru the historic arch we knew we were in for a treat . The Riad hotel has been authentically restored in the old traditional Medina style , spectacular wooden doors and windows and rugs . The beds may have been old in style but had modern comfortable mattresses to rest weary bodies on .... More
