We went to visit the spa for a Hammam and were looked after beautifully. The perfect start to a trip in Marrakech. James was very welcoming and the Riad itself was a perfect idyll away from the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Would definitely return in a flash!

If you plan to visit Marrakech (itself a wonderfully good idea...), and if you love small, boutique hotels of exquisite charm and luxury, then I cannot recommend Riad Farnatchi highly enough. Owner James Wix and his fabulous staff have created a jewel inside the medina, where the highest levels of personal service abound (never intrusive, but always there, always willing... More

This was our first visit to Marrakech and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at the Riad Farnatchi during this stay. We were blown away upon entering the first time by how lovely the design was and how friendly we were greeted by the staff. Our enthusiasm never waned during the entire 8 days we stayed... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this riad for 8 days. Everything about it was fantastic, from the decor, to the food, to the service. The riad staff do everything they can to attend to your every need and always go above and beyond to exceed your expectations. You must also visit their spa and try a traditional hammam... More

Second time to stay here. Even better than the last. Stand our super friendly staff, one of the best breakfasts that you can imagine and a super fun/yet fully functional room. My wife loved the bathroom and still only ten minutes wander to the square. Highly recommended

I have just had a 3 night stay at Riad Farnatchi and can not fault one single aspect of our stay. The staff were attentive, we arrived late and were taken straight to our room with check in formalities taken care of the next day which was very much appreciated after long flights. The food was truly exceptional, we had... More

'Welcome home' was the response I received as I entered through the door of Riad Farnatchi. The staff were the same smiley and efficient team I remembered from my last visit and they had put a bottle of my favourite Moroccan wine on ice in my suite. This was a short stay but as always a memorable one at the... More

This has to be one of the best hotels in Marrakech! The service, style and welcome are all excellent and I can't wait to head back for another visit soon!

I have travelled the world and been lucky enough to stay is some really great hotels but Riad Farnatchi was a true treat. The style of the Riad is wonderful however the service is the true gem. The service is very discrete but very efficient and you are left wanting for nothing. The Spa (see separate review) which has been... More

Riad Farnatchi truly exceeded expectations on every level! Brilliant service, beautiful rooms and a super location. You must try their new spa which is also wonderful and offers traditional as well as international treatments at the highest level. Very much looking forward to our next visit already!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
