Had a lovely trip to the Riad al Faras with my sister. Marrakech was blisteringly hot and busy but the Riad was a lovely oasis with a very welcome plunge pool in the pretty courtyard. We were the only guests staying there which was nice as it was quiet and Youssef was very accommodating and helpful. He met is in the main square on our arrival and helped us with out luggage. He even helped us book a trip to the Cascades which was excellent!!!
The room was small but adequate and the Moroccan bathroom was a lovely touch. It was also good to have wifi at the Riad.
I was a little bit disappointed with the breakfast as all the other reviews had mentioned this as a real plus and we had bread and jam and coffee each morning, with the odd pancake. As a coeliac I couldn't have any of this, but Youssef was very lovely heating up my gluten free bagels that I brought with me.
Overall a vey pleasant stay and I would be very happy to come and stay here again!
Riad charmant, lumineux et calme.
Le petit dejeuner est traditionnel et copieux.
La chambre oú nous avons sejourné était typique avec sa salle de bain et ses magnifiques portes en bois. Elle possedait aussi un climatiseur.
Our stay at Riad al Fara was great. Charlotte was not present but the manager of the riad even walked over to the square to meet with my group, to make sure we could navigate the maze of streets to find the riad. They also managed to arrange car rides to the airport for a reasonable price, and change the schedule slightly at the last minute, despite it being in a heavily odd hour (Saturday morning at 4am). The riad included a terrace and breakfast was also included. Overall, great experience. Close walk to the square.
We (as a party of 7) had a great stay at this Riad. The location was really convenient as it really was only a 5 minutes walk to get to the centre of the main square. The rooms were comfortable and cleaned every day. Breakfast was such a nice treat to have every morning, cooked by the lovely Aisha. Youssef (the housekeeper) was also really helpful and friendly with providing directions and arranged a trip to the desert for us. Charlotte was also able to answer any questions we had about the stay or Marrakech in general before our stay. All in all, this Riad was an amazing place to stay - thoroughly recommended!
A perfect location for a good price. We felt welcome and people were helpful. Thanks to Charlotte.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce Riad! Un vrai havre de paix au coeur de la Médina! on remercie le personnel qui a été au petits soins tout au long de notre séjour (petit déjeuner, chambre etc) et plus particulièrement Youssef qui nous à été d'une très très grande aide ;-) Merci encore pour tout! Je recommande!
Youseff and Aisha were amazing. Made us feel very welcome, nothing was too mush trouble.
The riad was clean and the layout was good with lovely communal spaces. We enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard where is was cool and also on the rooftop in the sun.
Breakfast was good and they were happy to provide me with just fruit.
Our room with two single beds was a bit small but we spent so little time there it really didn't matter. We peeked into the other rooms and they looked great.
Close and convenient for the square, but not too close, so the atmosphere in the surrounding streets was quieter.

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 ;)
