Just returned from a fabulous short holiday - only a few days, but Dar Fakir was perfect. The location was excellent - a very short hop from the souks and the main square, perfectly safe to walk even at night and remarkably quiet and tranquil. Upon our arrival, we were immediately 'upgraded' to a larger room (what a welcome!) and had the Dar to ourselves most of the time. Breakfasts on the terrace are spectacular, and every single member of the staff are very welcoming, friendly, accommodating and helpful at all times. Kerstin runs the Dar very efficiently and thanks to her directions and insider-knowledge of the medina, we didn't get lost once (and thats quite an achievement!) All in all, it was a great place to be - tranquil, relaxing, calm and beautiful. We'll visit again for sure.

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.
