I read Swiss Pink Panthers review with interested. I am of the personal opinion that diversity and culture is not fully appreciated by the reviewer.

A Riad is an individual house distinctive of local heritage. It is not in the league of 5 star bling. It is simple, restraint and uncomplicated but beautiful. All of the Riads are different in style and cannot truly be compared. The same as the local cuisine.

The Riad is understated but very comfortable. The staff were helpful and caring. Very attentive to our needs. I would return irrespective of other reviews.

There is a lovely restaurant near by with great food and wine.

Stayed: June 2015, traveled with friends

Thank you so much for your review and for pointing out what a riad really is as whilst we strive to offer every service that a you would expect of a world class 5* hotel we certainly want to retain our individuality, charm and personality that you will only find in a Riad. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that we can look forward to welcoming you back soon!

There are over 1000 riad hotels in the medina of Marrakech. They are as varied in quality of service and style as any hotel in the country. Some very poor and some very good. Riad Farnatchi is one of the best and fast becoming the benchmark for the rest.

Service is second to none, food exquisite and the rooms are opulent.

I said it is a benchmark for the rest but they have set the target so very high, most other riads will do well if they come even close to Farnatchi's high standards.

Fabulous.

We wanted to avoid the larger hotels and stay in the medina in a riad, and this was a great choice. The only downside about riads is that they are not accessible by car, so arriving and leaving with lots of luggage means some shlepping. However, the staff at Farnatchi are so gracious. Call before you arrive and they send someone to meet you and bring your bags, and you, to the doorstep. Once inside, they will bring you anything you need. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. We stayed twice, in two different suites. Both had spacious living rooms, patios, beautiful bathrooms and comfortable beds. Happy we chose it out of the thousands of riads in Marrakech!

I stayed here some 7 or 8 years ago when there were only 5 suites. The riad now has 9 suites, all exquisite and the attentive team led by Murad are efficient but but largely inconspicuous.
The riad is close to a parking and if you need to drive and park it is easy to find.
We were lucky enough to have Suite No 9 I believe that has a private court yard.
If you know it is going to be cold in Marrakech this is the property to be in. There is underfloor heating, radiators and open fires.
The area outside is still dominated by traditional activities and whilst donkey carts are fast disappearing in Marrakech in general this is not the case in this part of the Medina.
The riad has recently produced an excellent map of the Medina so that guests will not get lost
They also have an alcohol licence and an extensive cellar of Moroccan wine. Tasteful and understated.

Room Tip: Suite No 9 is large and very private. It is on the ground floor - so great if you do not want any stairs.

We spent this New Years Eve in Marrakech and at the delightful Riad Farnatchi. The highlight was the evenings events to see in the New Year.
The evening was a mix of fine cuisine, excellent service and a great atmosphere.
We were treated to a 5 course meal which was a great example of Moroccan cuisine and served by some of the most professional staff I have experienced in Marrakech. Each course was timed so well, meaning that we needed shortly before the New Year arrived. The ambiance and atmosphere was great, all guests dining together in 2 separate dining rooms with live entertainment throughout the evening, we then all joined in the courtyard to celebrate the festivities.
The standard and quality of the Riad was excellent, and such great attention to detail and touches. Its great to see the Moroccan design paired so well with a slight contemporary edge, a definite must stay at again!
