We only had one night at the riad but enjoyed it. It’s in the Medina, so a car can’t take you to the door (but they help you with luggage). Our visit started off with a wonderful breakfast (thank you for providing this with our early arrival!). The yogurt might be the best yogurt I’ve had. And the breads - wow. Our room was ready in the morning which was so nice. The room was quite large, with a living room, toilet closet, bedroom, and large bathroom. And a pretty and private rooftop terrace (with chaise lounges). I love the Molton Brown products! Full size and so many scents to choose from. ❤️ The water pressure in the shower was great. The bathtub was quite pretty. There were apples and date and water in the living room. This hotel had so many fun pleasant surprises. Canapés brought to the room in the late afternoon, hats and caftan’s in the room to take home if you want, the giant rooftop terrace. The staff was all so friendly and helpful. They will walk you to a restaurant or the souk if you want. And I so appreciate the breakfast when we arrived. It was perfect after an early flight. Thank you for the great 24 hours.…
Le Farnachi is a paradise of calm in the middle of the Medina. We have just spent 5 nights there enjoying the most memorable time in Marrakesh. It is a beautiful Riad, the food was exceptional and the fruit was the most delicious I have ever tasted anywhere in the world. A collection of Riads joined together, with a central swimming pool and stunning roof terraces with panoramic views over Marrakesh in which you can dine or have a drink watching the most incredible sunsets. James and his staff couldn’t of been more welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful during our stay.
Just had a wonderful stay and would go back in an instant. Good location and such elegant rooms. The staff were all great but particular thanks to Saeeda (hopefully spelt correctly) who managed our stay, excursions and restaurant bookings and made us feel at home and to Aziz who walked us to and from restaurants when we got lost! Saeeda and her team really went above and beyond and we look forward to staying again.
Beautiful place with perfect service and amazing hotel staff. A true oasis ! Make a visit to the spa and the restaurant, both are great. I would love to come back and recommend this hotel to everyone.
We had the most wonderful stay at Le Farnatchi. The very best place to stay when visiting the Medina. The staff are absolutely amazing and so helpful. The room was fantastic. A completely authentic and amazing boutique hotel. We cannot wait to stay again.
Early morning arrival at the Riad to be greeted with kindness, warmth and sweet tea. In massive contrast to the joyless experience of Manchester Airport! Met at airport. Slick transfer. Don’t stress about the transfer from aircon 4x4 to cart for luggage in Medina streets. All will be well. Room vast. Roof terrace. Riad itself an oasis of tranquilly from the outside Medina mayhem. Breakfast to die for. Service flawless. One quirk is the pool right in the centre of the Riad. Bathers and bread rolls pretty close by. All part of the charm and the delight of Marrakech. Riad organised a guide for the Medina which I would recommend for everyone, particularly those first time visitors. Enjoy.
I can't remember when we've had a more perfect hotel experience. Le Farnatchi was recommended to us by a friend and we had the most wonderful three days there. From the moment we were met at the airport and led into the busy Medina by the gracious hotel staff, to our friendly greeting by Morad (I hope I spelled correctly), every detail was attended to with care. The decor of the Riad is beautiful, with colorful intricate tiles, arches, lanterns and candles, the beautiful pool in the interior courtyard, and we had the most beautiful room with a Kilim sofa and canopied bed, Molton Brown bath products in the shower, great sheets and towels and robes. We also had a rooftop terrace to which the staff delivered our breakfast every morning. Morad helped us plan our days activities and made reservations for us every evening, including a small cake for our 30th anniversary, we were touched. It was nice to meet James, the owner, on our last day. He is from the UK and has lived in Marrakesh for many years. He has created a gem of a small hotel in the busy Medina. We are so happy to recommend this Riad to all. Above all I will remember the impeccable service and warm staff. p.s. we were visiting from New Jersey in the US and everything went easily with covid restrictions.…
My stay at Le Farnatchi was simply magical - the service was impeccable, the facilities excellent and my suite was just stunning. So spacious and so much attention to detail. My suite had two private outdoor spaces which I was so impressed by. This riad is the perfect destination for a honeymoon, with all the culture of Marrakech on your doorstep (whilst being inside the hotel is very calm and relaxing). The staff really make you feel special, as well as the food being delicious too. Can't recommend Le Farnatchi enough to anyone visiting Morocco soon!
We had such an incredible trip and were completely blown away by the impeccable service from beginning to end. The location is incredible, although you're just moments away from the medina you feel as though you're in an oasis of calm. The individually designed suites are breathtaking (the photos really don't do them justice), we had a terrace where we sat each morning to enjoy our coffee, and a huge bath which we soaked in every evening. The restaurant opposite 'Le Trou Au Mur' is also a real gem serving a mixture of traditional Moroccan and modern European cuisine. Similarly, the hammam treatment at the onsite Farnatchi Spa was spectacular and a real insight into the authentic local culture. All in all we loved our stay and can't wait to go back!
Had a fantastic stay which we are still talking about a week after getting home so decided to leave a review. Our room was stunning with private terrace overlooking the rooftops and a large bathroom. The staff were so attentive from airport collection to guiding us through the medina to the delicious breakfasts. Strongly recommend La Farnatchi as well as the accompanying restaurant and ham man/massage.
