We had two nights at this Riad (the fourth we have tried in various trips to Marrakesh just to try new places). It compared well with the others. Comfortable, clean rooms with helpful staff and good breakfast. Very similar in standard to the others (all in same price range). Biggest plus - great location - close to the square. Biggest...

We stayed 3 nights at Dar Fakir with Kriselda, the manager of the riad. We were warmly received with the traditional Mint Tea and lovely moroccan cookies. We were taken to our suite called Ahlame. The decor is both traditional and modern, a fusion perfectly pulled off. The beds we comfortable and towels large and enveloping. The bathroom was a... More

We stayed at the Riad Dar Fakir for a long weekend in the middle of October to celebrate my wife's birthday and really enjoyed our stay. This was our first experience of Marrakech and everything that we had heard about stopping in a Riad was true. The streets of Marrakech are chaotic and bustling, both mediaeval and modern, they are... More

We've just returned for a week long stay in Marrakech where we enjoyed a magical week in the beautiful #Riad_Dar_Fakir. I can't fault the staff, they were fantastic. They were there at every turn to help and can honestly say that they went over and above where possible. The Riad itself was the perfect location to hold our wedding, the... More

We stayed here for a night, before leaving Marrakech, on the last leg our our Morocco adventures. There was some confusion with our booking, as they were doing a facelift of the entire property, nonetheless, they accepted us with open and warm arms, and made our stay as easy, comfortable and pleasurable as possible. They even offered to upgrade us... More

We stayed in the Ahlame room. It was amazing, we walked in and there was instant peacefulness from the moment we stepped through the door. The decor is gorgeous, the interior is a beautiful aesthetic that is very clean. The Moroccan lamps cast beautiful patterns on the walls. Couldn't recommend this place more, it made us not want to leave... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a tour and did not want to leave! This Riad was absolutely stunning. A staff member, Amanda, met us at our taxi and had arranged a porter to take all of luggage to the Riad. We were very thankful for this as we would have had difficulty finding it ourselves... More

When we first arrived in the Medina in Marrakech ... I was taken aback by the sounds, smells and general chaos that surrounded me! We were lead through a maze like passageway and that ultimately ended to the door to Dar Fakir. Once we entered, I thought I would stay here for the rest of the trip. It was so... More
