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 were blown away upon entering the first time by how lovely the design was and how friendly we were greeted by the staff. Our enthusiasm never waned during the entire 8 days we stayed...

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. The riad staff do everything they can to attend to your every need and always go above and beyond to exceed your expectations. You must also visit their spa and try a traditional hammam...

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

I have just had a 3 night stay at Riad Farnatchi and can not fault one single aspect of our stay.

'Welcome home' was the response I received as I entered through the door of Riad Farnatchi. The staff were the same smiley and efficient team I remembered from my last visit and they had put a bottle of my favourite Moroccan wine on ice in my suite. This was a short stay but as always a memorable one at the...

We visited Marrakech for a few days and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Riad Farnatchi is located close to the main hustle and bustle of the medina but as soon as you walk through the door you could be in the middle of nowhere. It is like a little haven. There are different areas you...

I've stayed in many places in Marrakech over the years but now I always stay at Riad Farnatchi. It is an absolute gem! It's a spot of tranquility hidden in the heart of the medina.

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
