Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We absolutely loved this Riad. My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights and five days. The riad is perfectly located, we were close enough to the center and yet somehow removed. It was very quiet, which was a nice break from the crazy market place. The air conditioning in the room was perfect since it was summer! The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The breakfast was also very nice. Waking up in the morning and being able to relax with the most amazing orange juice was a great way to start the day! I would definitely come back and recommend to others traveling in Marrakech.

  • Très jolie Riad a 2min a pied de la place, accueil parfait, Youssef est toujours très disponible encore merci a lui!
    Les seul petits bémol et que nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine car celle ci n'avait pas était entretenue depuis quelque temps a en croire la couleur de l'eau... Et aussi le coup du transport qui nous a était facturé 15€ alors que les taxis n'en prennent que 5€ habituellement...
    Malgré ses petits détails nous avons passé un très bon séjour...et nous recommandons ce Riad.

  • I love this riad! I was travelling with my father and stayed in the twin room. The whole riad was beautiful and I could spend a day hanging around reading in the courtyard, the sheltered couches or on the sunbeds on the roof.

    The description says five minutes to Jamaa Al Fnaa square but it feels even less. It is right in the middle of the medina (old city) so you are close to everything. We took an excursion to the Atlas Mountains and the car picked us up really close as well.

    Our hosts arranged the taxi to and from the airport for us and we settled for it at the end of our stay, it makes it super easy to simply arrive at the airport and get to the riad.

    For breakfast we asked them to give us some hot water so we could use our aeropress for coffee and they supplied it everyday without reminder.

    Unfortunately our AC had a leak but they fixed it immediately.

    Overall this is a beautiful riad run by welcoming and helpful hosts. I plan to come back with my wife to stay in the room with the four poster bed!

  • Riad el Faras is the perfect place to stay in Marrakech! Right in the center of the Medina, clean and very friendly staff. The breakfast and the roof top terrace make the place a unique experience. Thanks a lot! We'll be back soon!

  • Riad Marrakech was a great experience. It is such a beautiful space and for the price, it exceeded all our expectations. Yousef and the other staff were super nice. Yousef was always there to help us if we needed something, even showing up right on time when we needed help at the door. The space felt authentic and was a great space to rest after coming home from the busy souks and square.

  • Très bien situé, à deux pas de la place Jemaa el na, mais au calme.
    Belle terrasse appréciée au retour d'une journée dans Marrakech !

  • Pasamos unos días excelentes en Marrakech. El riad esta muy bien ubicado. Los 5 minutos que refieren son ciertos, o incluso menos!. Es fácil llegar y moverse por puntos estratégicos.
    Nuestra habitación nos encantó. Nos esperaron con la calefacción encendida, con todo muy limpio y ordenado. El desayuno riquísimo y la decoración muy linda. Está muy bien cuidado.
    Si bien no conocimos personalmente a Charlotte, mantuvimos contacto con Youssef en todo momento. El nos enseñó personalmente el camino a la plaza y estuvo atento a cada una de nuestras consultas y/o solicitudes.
    Volveríamos al mismo riad y sin duda lo recomendamos. Hay que tener cuidado con el tráfico de bicicletas y motos para llegar... pero es un cuidado transversal a toda la ciudad!!
    Estamos muy agradecidos por la experiencia.

  • The Riad was very nice, quiet and clean. After the messy moments in the streets of Marrakech it was a benefaction to turn back into the Riad - it felt like being in a oasis of peace.
    The room was a little bit dark and cool but this has to do with the construction of the building and the fact that it was January.
    The room was nice, the water warm and the bed was very comfortable!
    Youssef the housekeeper and the women whose name I don't know where very friendly and helpful!
    The breakfast was basic but one of the best I had in Morocco (in other Riads) and I loved to eat it in the sunshine on the terace on the top of the roof!
    I really recommend this lovely place! Enjoy it in case you are going to visit it! :)

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.
