With only a three day break in Marrakech, my partner and I couldn’t believe how much we relaxed, and it was all thanks to the Riad el Fenn. From the moment of arrival at the airport, everything was supremely easy and well-organised, and an absolute pleasure. It made for the perfect short break. What particularly makes the place is the...

Going to Marrakech for a weekend (Fri-Sun) I thought would not be long enough to see the city properly and enjoy all is has to offer. Luckily my boyfriend and I were staying in Riad el Fenn. Being picked up in a brand new Land Rover we were driven to the hotel. Walking down a very non-descript alley a small... More

In the midst of the Marrakech maze of quaint little alleys, a hidden door shields Riad El Fenn from the busy medina. First off, your eyes can feast on amazing contemporary art and displays. Not at all the dreaded 'in your face' kind, but subtle and blending. Checking in at the front desk (which also serves as a little shop... More

You know you stayed in a good hotel when on the first night back in your own bed you are dying to go back. Riad El Fenn is in the center of the old town of Marrakech. A small street and a simple door form the entrance of the riad. Behind there paradise awaits. The hotel consists of several buildings... More

This hotel is exactly what you want from staying in Marrakesh! Beautiful unique rooms, glorious court yards, amazingly positioned- 20mins from airport and right next to the souk, tortoises crawling around, fresh flowers carefully placed in each fountain. It is a world in the hotel, each corner you could get lost turning in to yet another beautiful court yard. I... More

I am writing a little late but had to say how incredible Riad El Fenn is! - i would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about visiting Marrakesh. I think it would pretty much suit any sort of group/family going as it is so diverse and accomodating to see to your every need. As it was, i visited... More

I’ve just come back from the most amazing weekend in Riad El Fenn which was definitely not long enough! I’ve been to Marrakech a couple of times before but never stayed here and wish I had been introduced to the Riad earlier. Passing through inconspicuous doorway from the street you immediately enter a beautiful oasis (which you never want to... More

Riad el Fenn is wonderful... The bedrooms are all different and all fantastic - high ceilings, very tastefully decorated and with lovely bathrooms. The roof terrace is enormous and an excellent location to idle away the afternoon relaxing in the sun, perhaps mixed in with a break for lunch, a swim, a massage or game of boules (or indeed a...

My stay from start to finish was incredible! The rooms were beautifully presented and comfy. The hotel itself was absolutely divine with beautiful decor, fab spa options and delicious food (def opt for the well priced special mixed lunch - varies day to day with the available fresh produce). Breakfast was also a delight - a menu of treats, the... More

Having always used tripadvisor to take information, I'm finally going to contribute for the very fist time. I wouldn't normally be the one reading this, I'd have clicked straight to "terrible" reviews; which I now realise is itself a terrible way to choose a hotel. If like me you go round the world just looking for the least-worst hotels to... More
