We've just returned for a week long stay in Marrakech where we enjoyed a magical week in the beautiful #Riad_Dar_Fakir. I can't fault the staff, they were fantastic. They were there at every turn to help and can honestly say that they went over and above where possible. The Riad itself was the perfect location to hold our wedding, the...

We stayed here for a night, before leaving Marrakech, on the last leg our our Morocco adventures. There was some confusion with our booking, as they were doing a facelift of the entire property, nonetheless, they accepted us with open and warm arms, and made our stay as easy, comfortable and pleasurable as possible. They even offered to upgrade us...

We stayed in the Ahlame room. It was amazing, we walked in and there was instant peacefulness from the moment we stepped through the door. The decor is gorgeous, the interior is a beautiful aesthetic that is very clean. The Moroccan lamps cast beautiful patterns on the walls. Couldn't recommend this place more, it made us not want to leave...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a tour and did not want to leave! This Riad was absolutely stunning. A staff member, Amanda, met us at our taxi and had arranged a porter to take all of luggage to the Riad. We were very thankful for this as we would have had difficulty finding it ourselves...

When we first arrived in the Medina in Marrakech ... I was taken aback by the sounds, smells and general chaos that surrounded me! We were lead through a maze like passageway and that ultimately ended to the door to Dar Fakir. Once we entered, I thought I would stay here for the rest of the trip. It was so...

This was our first trip to Marrakech, bit dubious about being led down narrow dark alleys to a big wooden door. Bang on the door and open sezamee, like stepping into a different world. Friendly smile from the porter and led to a comforting sofa to be served mint tea and cakes. Had a wander round and took in the...

My husband and I stayed here in early December. I was keen to stay here after seeing the Riad in Made in Chelsea.

We followed our porter through small streets in the middle of the night and then we knocked on the door and were most friendly welcomed by the night porter and sat by the fireplace for a nice welcome tea with candlelight!

Excellent location, excellent rooms, very good breakfast, very good service. Breakfast was simple but nice, tea on arrival and very attentive throughout our stay. Was very quiet though, very few rooms occupied during our stay but would highly recommend this.

We had an incredible stay at Dar Fakir. When you step into the main courtyard from the alley, you are enveloped by soothing music, candle light, tables set with white tablecloths. It feels as if you have been dropped inside the lamp of a magic genie. The staff could not have been more helpful with practical, critical advice that made...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Fakir is a Riad de Charme located just 3 mins walk from Djema el Fnaa square. It reopened at the beginning of 2011 to visitors after a complete refurbishment. We differ from other riads in the sence that we offer an extensive service over other riads including not only the normal cooking courses but yoga, artisanal workshops and a very intimate service bordering onto concierge at very affordable rates. We provide extras such as meet and greet throughout your stay if required by our security guard during the evenings and at night. Mobile phones are provided to guests on request and are free of charge during their stay. We spend a lot of time with the guests making them feel welcome in the riad but also at home in the hectic maze of the Marrakech Medina. In total 5 languages are spoken in the riad - English, German, Swedish, French and the local Arabic, Darija. The rooms all have individually embroided bed linen made from Egyptian Cotton. The toiletries provided by Sence de Marrakech are Shower gel, Body lotion, shampoo and hand soap. For the Suite we can provide black soap and a gommage flannel.All rooms and Suites are decorated in elegant beige tadelakt on the walls as well as in the bathrooms. The floors have terracotta zellige. Rooms and Suites are furnished with traditional dark wood furniture in traditional berber style. The suites in addition have beautiful leather clad writing desks that tastefully match the decor. You will experience the ambience of arabian night in the evening when the handcrafted lamps and lanterns cast magical shadows on the walls. ... more   less
