The Riad Farah is a spacious, calm escape from the souks which are literally just a minute's walk out the door. The lively and exciting Jemma El Fna Square is within 2 minute's walk and offers delicious and seemingly endless food and shopping options for everyone. Our little nephews and children loved the adventure of the area, and the calm and refreshing quiet the Riad offered. Highly recommended!

This is exactly as it states! A beautiful stay for us all, spacious, lively, clean, and filled with tonnea of decor. You can be reassured you wont be missing home as it fulfills all the necessities with the added touch of culture! Its exactly 2 minutes from the square where the markets are located, and around 5 minutes from avenue de prince, where the restaurants are located. The villa is accessible to a range of services and it made our stay so much more easier and stress-free!

This is an absolutely STUNNING riad and is literally 2-3 mins away from the main markets in the old town. It's huge and very spacious, with great amenties. Rooms are clean, big and every room has an en-suite which is great. We used the private chefs for 3 meals and they were great. The food is amazing quality and far cheaper than going out to a restaurant. You get the home cooked meal and feeling of authenticity. Karim is great too - his communication is excellent and he's very helpful. I would highly recommend you stay here - it's such a beautiful place.

We stayed 10 days in the Riad as a group of colleagues during the climate conference. Everything was great. Communications with Karim and the local staff efficient, friendly and very helpful. The place itself is very charming, nicely appointed rooms, plenty of space to chill out and sun bathe (if one had the time :). Would definitely recommend staying in the Riad for a relaxed Marrakech Medina experience.

Great stay, beautiful house. Wish we'd booked the in-house dinner every night as it's a rip off in a lot of places in the Medina and nowhere near as good!

I stay here 2 night with my family, karim was fast response and he asked us before we arrive and even during our stay if everything is okey and don't hesitate to call him if we need anything he really was nice man. Riad near to center of Alfana square 2 min or less than by walking. Aziza greeted us and she made a tour of whole ride facilities and we were impressed of simple traditional moroccon design. each room was different from other one I really like that. the food was so delicious both meals. Overall Riad was great experience and Aziza and her friends they are verey helpful and nice women. أقمنا ليلتين في رياض فرح, كانت نتجربة جديدة ومثيرة كريم كان سريع التواصل معنا حتى قبل أن نصل يرسل ويتأكد من احتياجنا لأي خدمة وأن لا نتردد في الاتصال وطلب المساعدة.. الرياض قريب لساحة الفناء تقريبا أقل من دقيقتين مشيًا على الأقدام. عند وصولنا استقبلتنا عزيزة وقامت بعمل جولة على الرياض بأكملة وشرح جميع المرافق, الغرف كانت بسيطة ورائعة وكل غرفة تحتوي على اسم وتصميم مختلف عن الأخرى بتصاميم مغربية تقليدرية عريقة. الفطور كان مغربي تقليدي لذيذ والغداء كذلك. عزيزة وصديقاتها كانوا لطيفات جدا ولا يترددون في مساعدتنا عندما نطلب ذلك.

Just had a wonderful stay at Riad Farah and am glad we opted for this option. A few of us cousins had decided a family get together in Marrakech, and families had flown in from the US, Canada and UK. For our purposes then, the Riad was ideal as it had plenty of rooms, and space and yet homely enough to spend quality time together. It's an ideal setting for large groups. The Riad is an interesting building with lots of character. Rooms are quaint and well maintained; as are the numerous seating areas, cooling pool etc. Location is great, with lots of nice food places, shops, excursions, ham man...all on the doorstep. The Manager Aziza and her team of housekeepers are all friendly and accessible easily. Would definitely recommend having dinner at the Riad....the Tagine was the best we had during our stay in Morocco. Karim was easy to contact and quick to respond. Would definitely recommend this Riad and would love to stay there again. Only note of caution would be for visitors who require vehicular access close to where they stay. This is not always possible as Riad access is through the Jamaah al Fina; which is closed from midday onwards.
