Four of us stayed at Riad el Farah for four nights in January 2014 and we had a fantastic time. The Riad el Farah is situated in the heart of the Medina, and just a short walk to most of the main attractions. Mohammed, the owner, met us in a local square as pre arranged, following our taxi ride from the airport. He then guided us on the short walk to the Riad via the network of alleyways that make up this wonderful part of the city. The restored four bedroom Riad el Farah is set around an open courtyard, with a sun deck on the roof. As with most accommodation of this type in Marrakech, there is little heating in the Riad, so if you travel in winter, when the nights can get cold, remember to take something warm to wear. Breakfast is continental style, usually fresh bread, home made pancakes and local jam/marmalade.
Mohammed made our holiday something special. He guided us around the city, showed us where to eat for best value and local quality, organised and guided us on a trip to the Atlas Mountains and gave us an insight we would never have gained from a guide book. If you have a little understanding of the French language it will help your visit enormously.
Marrakech is a brilliant, bustling experience like nowhere else. Go there!
Thank you Mohammed
