Yet another wonderful and blissful stay in this stunning Oasis of calm in bustling Marrakech! Another incredible room with sunken bath and balcony. As ever the staff work with absolute discretion to ensure your every need is met. And the new spa is stunning! We cannot recommend this riad highly enough.

I liked the Riad it was a haven of tranquility amidst the bustle of Marrakesh. The service was very good the spa was very good, the decor, furnishings and rooms were very good. The public areas are very good. Top tip don't expect to be spoon fed if you want something ask for it... The literature concerning dining needs to...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review of your stay with us. Whilst I am delighted that you enjoyed most elements of your time spent at Farnatchi I am extremely disappointed to note that your dinner was clearly not up to our usually very high standards.

A great place to stay in Marrakech. The room I had was beautifully appointed. My only gripe would be that my room had the clothes cupboard in a narrow hallway and there was no place to put your suitcase whilst you packed and unpacked. But this is a small point. The Riad is beautiful, a sanctuary in the midst of...

If you plan to visit Marrakech (itself a wonderfully good idea...), and if you love small, boutique hotels of exquisite charm and luxury, then I cannot recommend Riad Farnatchi highly enough.

This was our first visit to Marrakech and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at the Riad Farnatchi during this stay.

We had the pleasure of staying at this riad for 8 days. Everything about it was fantastic, from the decor, to the food, to the service.

Second time to stay here. Even better than the last. Stand our super friendly staff, one of the best breakfasts that you can imagine and a super fun/yet fully functional room. My wife loved the bathroom and still only ten minutes wander to the square. Highly recommended

'Welcome home' was the response I received as I entered through the door of Riad Farnatchi.

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
