We are happy to organize your airport transfers on request
Riad al Faras is located in a short distance walk from the famous square of Marrakesh.
The place felt a bit - out of season - and that's maybe why the arrival process didn't turn out smoothly.
We booked on arrival date itself, and with no msg's replied, we went there to find out why and avoid a double booking.
The push-pin on the map is closeby it's location, but would like to tell you, that you find the riad on nr. 35.
Anyhow we had a good stay in the room that was clean and tidy, had breakfast Marroccian way served
and found host Youssef friendly.
Youssef met us from the taxi and walked us to the Riad, settled us in and gave us a quick orientation towards the main reference points in the main square. The accommodation was spacious, clean and the breakfast was excellent every morning. This is a great Riad, a great refuge from the busy streets of the Medina of Marrakesh. Youssef the housekeeper truly made our stay at Charlotte's Riad very comfortable and convenient. I would recommend staying here.
Riad idéalement situé dans une petite rue calme à quelques minutes de la place Jemaa El Fna.
La chambre était simple, propre et fraiche.
Le rooftop est très appréciable pour lire un livre ou prendre l'apéritif le soir venu.
Les transferts aéroport sont un peu cher par rapport aux prix pratiqués sur place.
L'accueil est un vrai plus!!! On s'y sent comme à la maison
Charlotte's Riad is beautiful. It was super clean, everyone was very friendly and offered to help when I had questions. The rooftop is great for brunching and sun tanning. Sadly, the pool is rather decoration than an actual pool.
Overall, I've had a great stay at the Riad.

About the Host, Charlotte
J'habite à Lyon en France où je profite tous les jours du typique et vivant quartier du Vieux Lyon.
J'aime voyager, notamment au Maroc dans le Riad de ma famille : un havre de paix dans la superbe ville de Marrakech où nous recevons des touristes du monde entier, accueillis chaleureusement par le personnel du Riad.
I live most of the time in Lyon in France. I am a big fan of the "old Lyon" neighborhood.
I love traveling, specially in Marrakech in the nice and relaxing Riad of my family. Our staff is amazing and welcome our guests very carefully when we are away.
Always happy to provide visitors with recommendations and advice ;)
