Riad Farnatchi, what a stunning hotel. Located at the heart of Marrakech medina minutes from the souks, yet a haven of peace and tranquility, we were warmly welcomed by James the owner.. Superbly decorated and spotlessly clean rooms, log fires if requested, dining experiences to die for, and wonderful smiling staff. These along with James's recommendations for desert trips, gardens and places to visit, and from which stall to eat (no. 22) when eating out in the square, all made for a truly memorable stay. Neither my wife and I, nor the friends we travelled with could fault our stay at The Farnatchi in any way and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone as a base from which to explore Marrakech.
