I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Riad Al Faras. My beautiful accommodation provided a welcome oasis of calm amidst Marrakech's hustle and bustle. Youssef was very friendly and helpful but not in the slightest intrusive. Highlights were the room terrace for relaxing in the shade of the midday sun and the excellent breakfast with the best orange juice I've had.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt im Riad al Faras sehr genossen und können es als Ruheoase in dieser quirligen Stadt in jedem Fall weiterempfehlen! Die Haushälter Youssef und Aischa haben uns sehr gut umsorgt und waren dabei nett, höflich und zugleich angenehm zurückhaltend. Einen Stern Abzug gibt es von unserer Seite, da das WLAN so schwach war, dass ein Zugang nur in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Router möglich ist. Zudem haben wir die fehlende räumliche Trennung zwischen Schlaf- und Badezimmer sehr unangenehm empfunden - die Wand ist oben offen und statt einer Tür gibt es nur einen Vorhang. Ansonsten sind die Zimmer und das ganze Riad sehr schön und traditionell eingerichtet, ohne dabei kitschig zu wirken.
My sister and I had an amazing stay at riad al faras, couldn't fault a thing! Would definitely recommend it and stay again next time I'm in Marrakech. Lovely sunny roof terrace, great breakfast, large rooms, and very comfy beds! Many thanks for a great stay
The Riad is really well located, the staff is helpful and the breakfast was delicious! My only problem was that the wooden frame on top of the bed was making a lot of noise, so if possible, I would recommend taking a room without this frame. But overall a very nice place to stay!
Our stay in this riad was perfect, the staff were so helpful and friendly and the rooms very clean and comfortable. It was a peaceful place to stay and best part of the day was breakfast on the sunny roof terrace! It was also really well located, close to the Place Jemaa el Fna and many other sites. Communication was good throughout. I would definitely recommend it and would go again!
The place was as good as it says it is. Really liked the environment and the closeness to Jemna El Fna. Yousseff the housekeeper is always there if there are questions.
Charlotte was a great host and the Riad is a quite oasis in the middle of the buzzing Medina of Marrakech. We had an amazing experience in the city and Youssef, the housekeeper, was a great help regarding all kind of questions and recommendations during our whole stay!
We are looking forward to coming back :)

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 ;)
