The Riad El Faris is a clean, friendly and beautiful Riad in the North of the Medina. It offers individual, well decorated and traditional bedrooms. We stayed on two occasions over the fortnight of our holiday to Morocco and had the opportunity to stay in the Chambre Vanille and Cumin, which were both great. Aziz made our stay very welcoming and he could not enough for us, he guided us the right way to the souks, answered any queries we had and arranged transport for us. The Riad also contacted us prior to travelling to arrange a transfer from the airport which worked out at 15 euros, also we had our evening meal at the Riad which was within the traditional Moroccan style and consisted of grilled vegatables for starter, Chicken Tagine for the main and yoghurt for the desert. The meal was good value for money and very tasty.
The Riad is in the North of the medina and is about a 20 minute walk to the centre (providing you do not get lost, which is very easy to do in Marrakech, however all part of the fun!) Th locals are very friendly and helpful, but do be aware if you ask for directions etc...they will expect a small amount of money for them doing so.
Marrakech is great city, full of traditions and great people - it a very mad and crazy ( and extremely hot if you are travelling July/August) and the Riad El Fairs offers a haven of peace and tranquilty, I would recommend anyone to stay at this Riad as it great value for money and the staff are just exceptional!
