We stayed at El Fenn in August 2013 and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at this unique Riad. Firstly the location is perfect.It is within the Medina walls, but more importantly only 5 minutes walk from Jemaa El Fna Square with its vibrant nightlife, and the Souks. Although this may not seem essential, after... More

I had such a great stay at Riad El Fenn! The riad itself is stunning, and very well maintained. I really love the mix of traditional moroccan and contemporary design and the decor details are beautiful. From the moroccan rugs, to the unique and diverse artwork, and even the color palette that paints the walls, I was mesmerized by El... More

We were not staying here so this is a terrace restaurant review. I am awarding this 3 stars purely on standard of food. There was, however, some really nice parts to our experience so I will talk about those first. The lady on reception was great and gave myself, my wife and two young girls a tour of the riad...

Some friends were staying here, and we visited them cocktails a couple of times, absolutely stunning decor and ambiance, very good cocktails best enjoyed on the roof terrace! Even a visit for drinks or dinner will make your stay in Marrakesh memorable - as it did ours.

If you are looking for a stylish Riad in a fabulous location then look no further. The friendliness of the staff, the quality and style of the furnishings, the stunning rooftop (where we lost ourselves comfortably for hours!) and the delicious food - all went towards making this a perfect getaway. Can't wait to go back in March.

We had a wonderful three night stay at El Fenn commencing with our airport transfer from Casablanca. We had a courtyard room which was fantastic and about the same size as our one bedroom apartment in Singapore. The breakfasts were fantastic and a great way to start the day. The staff kindly wrapped up a couple of baguettes to take... More

We stayed in El Fenn for 3 days and it was simply amazing. Everyone in our group had a uniquely stunning room. My room was bigger than my flat in London! We also had a fantastic cooking class with the chef and then enjoyed our meal on the beautiful rooftop terrace. Definitely one of the best hotels Ive stayed at... More

This place is a hidden gem in the heart of Marrakech within the walls of the old city. We stayed here for 4 nights in July, and we absolutely adored it. It's the perfect getaway for couples wanting a break away from the norm to relax and recharge. Here's some quick facts: 1. Location. Perfectly positioned right in the heart... More

With a myriad of riads to choose from and a myriad of reviews espousing the virtues of most of them , making a choice was a challenge.So many of them sounded great and looked interesting on the websites.Ultimately we narrowed our choices to El Fenn (because we thought Branson's sister wouldn't want to let the family down and fortunately she...

My girlfriend and I visited El Fenn for dinner, on recommendation, and were delighted with our experience. They have created something special in marrying the attentive, but not disruptive, service and facilities of a five star hotel with the tranquility that only a Riad can normally offer. You don't feel like a customer, but that you've been invited into someone's... More
