My mother and I stayed here to celebrate my birthday back in late February/early March. I could not recommend this place more.
Hannah, Noel, Aredwan and Julia were all wonderful and very accommodating staff, all you have to do it ask and they will do their best. A MUST HAVE, dinner in the raid and ask to be in the chimney room, it is a wonderful experience (the staff even arrange for a take out in there when we got a little peckish in the later hours), also try the Moroccan red wine they serve. Then breakfast on the roof, where there was enough food for the rest of the family and the Moroccan coffee was too good to have just one cup!
Furthermore, Kerstin the general manager obliged to all our needs, even outside the riad, when we made a trip into the mountains (recommend using their car service, it is worth it) and had a spa day at the La Mamounia (which was also lovely, so relaxing!!). When we asked for recommendation about where to eat ect, we could not be more happy with the outcomes, once again very accommodating to our needs!
The location is perfect, just under five minuets from the square, although you can barely hear the hustle and bustle that comes from it. Rooms are kept clean and tidy and you can sleep safely at night. The Riad itself is beautiful, full of traditional decoration!
Dar Fakir definitely made our trip so special and you could not find a better riad in Morocco let alone Marrakech if you tried!!! I think we have agreed to try and make this an annual thing!!!

- 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.
