Riad al faras provided a great base for our stay in Marrakech. It was close to the main square but you felt like you were immersed in the local culture. It was an easy walk everywhere and we never felt unsafe. Youseff was our host and was the best. He looked after all our cabs and helped organise a trip to mountains. He also provided a great breakfast at any time we required it. Will definitely recommended this place to our friends.
Fantastic riad, clean and very hospitable staff. Youseff is super friendly and warmly welcomed us into the riad. Location is optimal (close to the square), water was warm, and breakfast was tasty.
Very nice riad. The location is great and Riad is easy to find. 6 of us stayed there, we arrived at different times and the staff was always on site to let us in. Very nice roof terrace to enjoy the nice weather and relax. We would recommend.
Charlotte wasn't actually there when we stayed but the house keeper Yousseff was lovely and very welcoming. The Riad was lovely and clean and we had a wonderful stay would recommend it to anyone. Its incredibly close to the main square and relatively easy to find. My only criticism is that on air b&b its listed as Riad Marrakech ...when it should actually be Riad Al Fara in Marrakech this caused us a few problems when trying to find it first time, but thankfully Youssef came to meet us.
The location of this Riad is great for seeing what Marrakesh has to offer. Unfortunately the shower was broken and there was a small ant infestation. Our room was air conditioned, and well appointed. For being one of the more expensive Riads in Marrakech I was very disappointed.
Beautiful calm riad in the centre of Marrakech. You are basically in the Souks, and a few minutes walk to the main square. The hosts were so welcoming, the beds comfortable and the shower amazing! Lovely terrace, where we had a great breakfast of bread, jams, coffee, fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice every morning! Really can't fault it, thank you!
The Riad al Faras is a fantasic place! I would certainly recommend it and hopefully I will come back soon. The location of the Riad is perfect, ideal to visit the nearby sightseeing spots.
The Riad is like an oasis! The rooms are lovingly furnished and calm. The breakfast is delicious and can be served on the terrace.

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 ;)
