We had a great time at Riad Al faras l! Beautiful courtyard and great breakfast we were the only people staying there so had the roof terrace to ourselves! Highly reccomended!
Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer Charlotte mais Youcef était là pour nous accueillir et a été un précieux guide pendant notre séjour. Le riad est charmant et idéalement situé à quelques minutes à pieds de la place Jemaa El-Fna. Très calme et en retrait de l'agitation de la médina, c'était vraiment agréable d'y revenir entre deux promenades et le soir après les journées dans les souks !
The Riad is a delightful place. It feels very tranquil and homely and a lovely retreat from the exciting bustle of the surrounding Souks. It is a short walk from the square where all the excitement happens (fantastic street food, snake charmers and acrobats) and the Riad staff Josef and Aysha and their helpers are very friendly. We went in Feb ( when it can still be chilly in the morning and at night) so bring jumpers and slippers and dressing gowns. Also pre-book massages and Hamman at the Les Bains Marrakech with Charlotte before hand its REALLY GOOD.
When the sun shines then relax on the roof and listen to the call to prayer ringing out over the roof tops. A magical stay . Thank you Riad Al Faras.
We stayed at this Riad 2 separate times (there was a trip to Essaouira in the middle). The staff were lovely, the breakfast was delicious, and the rooftop terrace was very impressive. The location is very central, a 5 min walk to the square (but be prepared for a lot going on whenever you're walking to/from the Riad). Yousef was very helpful - he took us out so we knew the route to the square, and also took us to a shop to buy bus tickets. He also let us leave our luggage during our 2 days to Essaouira.
The first room we stayed in was small and the bed was very squeaky. When we returned from our side trip, however, we had a much better room (larger, a smaller bed/sofa to sit on, better lit, and a much better bed!). While we were disappointed with our first room, we were much more satisfied in the second.
We stayed at Charlottes riad for two nights. We did not have a chance to meet Charlotte, but the staff were really helpful and kind.
The riad is located really central and in a nice neighborhood. The breakfast was great and we enjoyed it on the lovely sunny rooftop.
Awesome location. Beautiful riad. We had 3 beds for the three of us, which was perfect. We just wished we had more time!
The Riad is lovely, charming and beautiful. It is very near the main square and crucially easy to navigate in and out of. The guys made me feel very welcome and was lovely traditional hospitality.

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 ;)
