'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! The advice I was given by the staff on where to eat, what to do and how to get around were all superb, I would highly recommend staying at Riad... More

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!

We visited Marrakech for a few days and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Riad Farnatchi is located close to the main hustle and bustle of the medina but as soon as you walk through the door you could be in the middle of nowhere. It is like a little haven. There are different areas you... More

I've stayed in many places in Marrakech over the years but now I always stay at Riad Farnatchi. It is an absolute gem! It's a spot of tranquility hidden in the heart of the medina. Ideally located from which to explore the city. Otherwise it's a fantastic place to sit back and relax - the spa is simply amazing! The... More

Although we haven't yet stopped there yet, following our visit to the Farnatchi Spa (part of the same complex) I was given a tour of the riad and it's rooms and facilities. What can I say, simply beautiful and the destination of choice for our next visit to Marrakesh. The attention to detail is breathtaking and everything is finished to... More

Truly wonderful. We have been in some wonderful places around the world, but Riad Farmatchi has truly surpassed previous experiences. Through the attention to detail and exquisite taste, combined with a welcome which can only be subscribed as retuning to the family family.

I stayed at Riad Farnatchi last month for the first time and which will definitely not be my last. I still cannot get over the charm of that place and how everything about it made me feel home.

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our visit to RF. It was the perfect retreat after our wedding and superb place to start our tour of Morocco.

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
