This Riad was the highlight of our vacation. From the moment we checked into our beautiful room with a fire place, elegant bathroom, and one of a kind terrace, we were in heaven! They serve you complimentary delicious breakfast in any part of the riad you would like (we chose our private terrace) and were extremely accommodating. I recommend going...

A wonderful riad in a fantastic and very peaceful location. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to an enormous suite when we arrived which was beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. The staff couldn't have been nicer, more professional or kind and I miss having a delicious breakfast outside in the courtyard! It is a tranquil oasis away from the...

Lovely holiday here for 'Twixmas 2016 - my first time holidaying on my own, as a female. Quite brave, I thought, to go to a completely different culture! The staff at the Riad could not have taken better care of me - they organised restaurant bookings, tour guides, spa treatments etc without batting an eyelid. LIttle things, such as staff...

Went for a long weekend to Marrakesh having never been to Morocco. Riad Farnatchi surpassed all expectations. From the moment we arrived and were picked up by the Riad everything was done impeccably. The Riad is an incredible building in an exceptional location at the top of the Souk right in the heart of the Medina. The hotel staff are...

It is difficult to do justice with a few words (or many) to Riad Farnatchi, just as it is difficult to convey the experience of Marrakech. Riad Farnatchi is an antidote to the hotel experience. Every room is unique, every detail resulted from a personal decision by the owner. We had 2 rooms, one for my wife and me, and...

It was such a pleasure to return to this perfect oasis of calm in the wonderful city of Marrakech. The hotel and spa are absolutely second to none. It has been a very busy last couple of months at work so the chance to relax in such sumptuous surroundings was a joy. The staff could not have been kinder or...

Listen first of all I'd like to say the staff here were wonderful and very nice. My problem is the price . The English owner seems to be cashing in and rubbing his hands together. For one nights accommodation and a snack from room service it was just over £400 !! This is London or New York prices ! I've...

I am sorry to hear that you didn’t feel that RIad Farnatchi was up to your expectations; I must note however that out of the 24 reviews you have posted on trip advisor only two places score higher than us. We have been praised both on this site and in global press for the unusually large, well-designed Suites at Riad...

The staff is very attentive and helpful. The breakfasts on the terrace were wonderful. We loved our Hammam experience with Fatiya. She is amazing and such a professional. I'd recommend the experience to anyone going there, The Riad is clean, elegant, and I loved the touch of all the Molton Brown products in the shower.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
