Listen first of all I'd like to say the staff here were wonderful and very nice. My problem is the price . The English owner seems to be cashing in and rubbing his hands together. For one nights accommodation and a snack from room service it was just over £400 !! This is London or New York prices ! I've... More

The staff is very attentive and helpful. The breakfasts on the terrace were wonderful. We loved our Hammam experience with Fatiya. She is amazing and such a professional. I'd recommend the experience to anyone going there, The Riad is clean, elegant, and I loved the touch of all the Molton Brown products in the shower.

A beautiful relaxing oasis amongst the frantic, hectic streets of Marrakesh. A tranquil, relaxed atmosphere is created by the cool surroundings and decor as well as the friendly staff. The peaceful sound of running water could be heard in our room from the pool in the central ground floor area, further helping us to unwind. The highly efficient and helpful... More

Superb location, a couple of minutes walk from the souks in the centre of the Madina. James Wix (owner) and staff were the perfect hosts. The service was faultless, attention to detail spot on & the Riad itself stunning. Would thoroughly recommend.

Yet another wonderful and blissful stay in this stunning Oasis of calm in bustling Marrakech! Another incredible room with sunken bath and balcony. As ever the staff work with absolute discretion to ensure your every need is met. And the new spa is stunning! We cannot recommend this riad highly enough.

I liked the Riad it was a haven of tranquility amidst the bustle of Marrakesh. The service was very good the spa was very good, the decor, furnishings and rooms were very good. The public areas are very good. Top tip don't expect to be spoon fed if you want something ask for it... The literature concerning dining needs to... More

A great place to stay in Marrakech. The room I had was beautifully appointed. My only gripe would be that my room had the clothes cupboard in a narrow hallway and there was no place to put your suitcase whilst you packed and unpacked. But this is a small point. The Riad is beautiful, a sanctuary in the midst of... More

If you plan to visit Marrakech (itself a wonderfully good idea...), and if you love small, boutique hotels of exquisite charm and luxury, then I cannot recommend Riad Farnatchi highly enough. Owner James Wix and his fabulous staff have created a jewel inside the medina, where the highest levels of personal service abound (never intrusive, but always there, always willing... More

This was our first visit to Marrakech and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at the Riad Farnatchi during this stay. We were blown away upon entering the first time by how lovely the design was and how friendly we were greeted by the staff. Our enthusiasm never waned during the entire 8 days we stayed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
