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

EL Fenn a tardis in the medina . The moment you walk through the ancient wooden doors you are enchanted , the warmth and depth of the deep red coloured walls invite you in and in turn lead you to a gardened court yard , black and white tiled floor ,little birds singing at your arrival and yes ,watch your...

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
