Spent four nights at this beautiful Riad. It's right down the street from the main square and the Koutoubia mosque (walking distance and you can see the mosque from the rooftop). Loved the pet turtles crawling around on the main floor, the delicious morning breakfast, the SUPER friendly and helpful staff, and the luxurious rooms. We visited the hammam for... More

My wife and I travel all over the world, and stay normally in Very nice places. I honestly cannot remember a better place we have stayed. It just has this cool exotic feel to it. The rooms are just amazing, the food incredible, and the staff even nicer. Coffee and croissants outside your door when you awake, and terrific breakfast... More

I write this review not to provide any new or additional information (the previous reviewers have all done justice to the hotel!), but just to ensure that this amazing Riad keeps high on the TripAdvisor ratings table! There are so many stylish places to choose from in Marrakech, and for our annual 'girls trip', I wanted to pick the right... More

The nicest hotel I've ever stayed in - everything was perfect and I would quite happily have stayed in the hotel every day without leaving. I particularly enjoyed having a hamman, and the fact that the pool was big enough to swim lengths. I don't have any points of criticism, and little to add to what other reviewers have said.... More

4 nights here in the middle of the August heat and this riad was an oasis of peace and tranquility. The air conditioned rooms were astoundingly beautiful - stayed in both 20 and 21 and fell in love with both of them. The hotel staff are all friendly and helpful. We enjoyed all three pools and the chilly water of... More

Located inside the medina but close to city walls and gate make it very comfortable also to arrive by car if necessary. Once you enter through the doors of the hotel you are immediately put at ease, a great sensation after the chaos of the medina. The rooms are great, all very different, there are various beautiful courtyards, each one... More

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...
