This was our first trip to Marrakech, bit dubious about being led down narrow dark alleys to a big wooden door. Bang on the door and open sezamee, like stepping into a different world. Friendly smile from the porter and led to a comforting sofa to be served mint tea and cakes. Had a wander round and took in the... More

My husband and I stayed here in early December. I was keen to stay here after seeing the Riad in Made in Chelsea. It is a beautiful building and has a tranquil feel, very nice to rest here after the hustle and bustle of the Medina. We had been staying at a hotel a little out of Marrakech and the... More

We followed our porter through small streets in the middle of the night and then we knocked on the door and were most friendly welcomed by the night porter and sat by the fireplace for a nice welcome tea with candlelight! The riad is nicely decorated and the atmosphere is very peaceful. Breakfast can be served on the roofgarden with... More

Excellent location, excellent rooms, very good breakfast, very good service. Breakfast was simple but nice, tea on arrival and very attentive throughout our stay. Was very quiet though, very few rooms occupied during our stay but would highly recommend this.

We had an incredible stay at Dar Fakir. When you step into the main courtyard from the alley, you are enveloped by soothing music, candle light, tables set with white tablecloths. It feels as if you have been dropped inside the lamp of a magic genie. The staff could not have been more helpful with practical, critical advice that made... More

Airport pickup and drop off. Breakfast is included and dinner can be prearranged for not much more. I can't say much more about the hospitality and customer service other than it's impeccable. The second you book with them, you'll be in communication with them about your flights and what services they offer. It's more than I can say about a... More

We only stayed here for one night and got an airport transfer booked via Dar Fakir, definitely get a baggage porter to show you to the Riad, as for the first time it will be hard to find, but once there you'll have the route memorised. The alley may startle some at first, but it is perfectly safe and commonplace... More

this riad became our sanctuary from the high intensity sights, sounds, smells of marrakech. the riad is tranquil, the common spaces are comfortable and cute, make sure to spend some time in the rooftop. the lack of door between the bedroom and the bathroom may be off-putting for some, but we found the rooms to be clean, comfortable, and well...

Myself and my partner ventured out to Marrakech at the start of October, perfect time to go as the intense summer sun is starting to relent a little and becomes bearable. A comfortable 35 degrees on average for us which meant we were able to explore the medina, the souks or ever kick back and sunbathe. We struck lucky too... More

Our stay at Dar Fakir was truly amazing, the room and bathroom were luxorious and the location was perfect for us to explore Marrakech. The staff were very attentive and in the evening the place was truely magical.
