Excellent service, beautiful place, wonderful rooms, a peaceful retreat in the middle of noise Marrakech. We stayed 5 days and loved the Riad, did not want to spend to much time in the city but on the terrace, at the pool, in our room, in the restaurant. It is a beautiful location, very well kept, clean and with a very... More

Although we only visited the El Fenn for a cool drink on a hot day, I had to review this fantastic place. We tentatively asked if we could be shown around(and wasnt sure if this would be ok) and the restaurant manager Houssein couldnt have been more helpful explaining the history of the building his passion for his work at...

An enchanting series of tiny courtyards linked by stairs, serene and cool. A courtyard garden with a family of tortoises. Afternoon tea and pastries. A beautiful rooftop terrace with excellent food, a good wine/beer selection, and exceptional service. While I didn't try out the spa, it looked lovely and relaxing. But Riad el Fenn is not just suitable for quiet... More

We stayed for sadly only 1 night at this amazing hotel. It consists of 4 courtyards, all joined to make an amazing riad. Although it has 21 rooms, you can find so many little quiet and beautifully decorated corners. It takes at least a day to soak in all the sights of just this riad, let alone the busy chaotic...

2 Nobel Prizewinners recommended this hotel...now we see why!! Spectacular, quirky oasis in the old medina. Food service the best we found in Morocco with a staff that understands international travel standards but does not sacrifice local charm. Each of our rooms was an individual jewel, updated with a quirky design sense and many artist touches in public and private... More

There really is no better place in the whole of Marrakech. From the dusty hot medina it is impossible to imagine what lies behind the large brown doors that are the portals to El Fenn. The most beautiful series of courtyards unravels as you wander in - some filled with day beds, orange trees and fountains, others with pools and... More

We stayed for 5 nights at El Fenn.As seasoned travellers we had great expectations but unfortunately we found it to have many short comings. Our room was so dark it was all most impossible to find clothes,dress and relax. Very impractical for two suitcases,no where but the floor to leave and try and live out of. There was nothing in...

Reading your comments, we have to agree the information in the room is insufficient and we are therefore updating our in-house information. However we pride ourself on a very personalised service, which... More

Just returned from a four day trip in morocco to relax, suck up some culture, sun and a little shopping. I took my girlfriend who is a designer by trade and has a deep love for culture. I am happy either way lying in the sun or trotting around. We spent two days in the Atlas Mountains at Branson's Kasbah... More

I stayed at this magical riad in February this year. It is hidden behind a simple entrance just next to the souk but, when you go in, you are greeted by a sumptuous indoor garden and an array of stunning rooms in four interconnecting buildings. We spent most of our time on the fabulous roof terrace where we ate breakfast... More
