“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

My wife and I visited Marrakech in May 2014 for our 25th anniversary and what a magical place. Riad El Farah made it even more special, great location right in the heart of the city, with a short walk to all main attractions. The owner Mohamed is a great host and had made us feel at home. The breakfast was great and so is the room, very clean and tidy.

A place you can call home while you are away from home. A beautiful and peaceful Riad tucked away from the extreme noise of Marrakech. If there is one place in this busy city to rest- it's definitely Riad El Farah.

Mohamed, the owner of the riad is a beautiful soul himself. His open heart and welcoming attitude will make you feel safe and in peace. Marrakech is rather difficult place for a foreigner to stroll along, but with Mohamed's time and patience- we knew in minutes where to go and what to avoid.

Anyway, you can always count on Mohamed's support and help.

Riad El Farah is a magical place. It's always clean, quiet and food is fresh. We were in heavens day after day.

Communication with Mohamed via e-mail was easy and straight forward. Each question was answered and he even offered to pick us up from the main station in order not to get lost. What a good man!

it really was one of the most enjoyable and welcoming places i have stayed, a real gem hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the main square and medina. The decor was clean, comfortable, cosy and traditional. small touches gave it a real feel of home. Great location to all local amenities, with a short walk to the main road and 10mins from the main square and other local attractions.

what made this riad special was mohammed and Amina, with there hospitality and service throughout our stay, made it feel like a family...and other guests we met along the way the stayed over the week made it feel like a home.

5 stars all round, definatley be back here in the near future.

Room Tip: occassionally noisy with the sound of sceeching cats at night, take some ear plugs or request for a...

We stayed for a week in mid-March. Staying in this riad, within the kasbah, gave us a real Moroccan experience but with the guidance and protection,.as required, from Mohamed the owner. Everything good about the riad and about Mohamed has already been said many times and we agree with it all. It only took us one orientation walk with Mohamed and we were able to find our way back to the riad but we had the safety of having his telephone number in case we got lost or otherwise in trouble. The street market very close to the riad was excellent for buying fruit and bread for lunch. The nearest "road" (opposed to alleyways), the Rue de la Kasbah, has lots of cafes and shops including the useful fixed price shop which can be recognised by the 2 big stone lions outside it. Here everything is priced and so you know exactly what you are paying. My husband walks with a stick but we didn't find getting around and to the Jema el Fna difficult as everywhere is flat. The riad was delightfully atmospheric, particularly at night with the candles lit. Our room was lovely (as are all 4 rooms). The breakfast was pefectly adequate and Mohamed did his best to help whenever we asked. It was a superb holiday.

Room Tip: We liked our room best on the left at the top of the stairs, but they were all nice.

We've stayed in riad el faris for a week. The riad is nice decorated with eye for details. Every day our room was cleaned.
Very friendly staff and we got all the information we asked for. Breakfast was excellent with fresh made maroccian pancakes and orange juice. It has a great rooftop terrace, with a nice view over the neighbourhood.
We really felt welcome and at home. Thanks to the friendly staff! Relaxing atmosphere.
It is a bit of a challenge to find your way in the medina, but it is part of being in Marrakech, we suppose.
If you really get lost, they give you a map and telephonenumbers in the riad, so you can call.
We had a great time in riad el faris , thanks for the hospitality and hope to visit the beautiful riad again!

Stayed from 23rd feb to 27th feb. Riad owner Mohamed a gentleman who was polite and courteous with a lovely sense of humour a pleasure to have known. Most helpful at all times. The riad was a lovelly place to stay, quiet and peaceful a good place to retreat to after the hustle and bustle of the markets.
Excellent value for money.
Mohamed, if you read this I would personally like to thank you for everything. The invitation to join you for dinner with two of your French golfing friends was a nice thought and your food was most enjoyable.

I stayed for four nights with my dad in a twin room. Mahmoud and Nicole were very friendly, accommodating hosts with plenty of suggestions, showing us the nearest exchange and local landmarks to help us find our way back! The traditional riad with a courtyard is really lovely with a nice warm terrace. Breakfast was perhaps a little basic (bread and jam, pastries, coffee - but very nice), we had a really nice stay and would recommend to anyone. Great value too, right in the old city and 10 minutes walk from the main square.
