If in Marrakech don't miss out by not staying at Farnatchi! James,who has taken over the Riad from his well respected hotelier father, is quite knowledgable as well as charming. The rooms are decorated in a tasteful Moroccan style.There is no doubt you will covet items you see and James will be there to help you obtain your desires.He even...

I have never before written a review on this or any other website, but my experience at Riad Farnatchi made me want to. I had a heavy week of paperwork ahead and thought the task would be lighter under brighter skies than England had to offer. I was lucky that a telephone call to the Riad late on Sunday evening...

We come to Marrakech 4-5 times a year and always try to stay at Farnatchi. Over the years it has achieved the unimaginable - to actually get better. I didn't think perfection could better itself bu Riad Farnatchi has achieved it! From the seamless service to the exceptional suites, this is truly where heaven and earth meet. Book as soon...

Beautiful property in the Medina (old town part of Marrakech) managed by James and his excellent staff. 9 rooms - each uniquely decorated. The combination of excellent, personalized service and small hotel makes it ideal for family gatherings and private parties. There is a small cold water pool and one table poolside. The terrace also has tables and there are...

What a lovely place. Tucked away in the medina, being close enough to the action of the souks yet able to escape to this quiet and tranquil riad was a joy! I have never stayed anywhere where the standard of room is so high not to mention beautiful, felt so spoilt the entire time. The food is also delicious with...

This is surely one of the best small hotels in Marrakesh, if not the region, if not the world. The building itself is a labour of love, converted from three individual houses around two main courtyards. The interior design choices and architectural attention to detail are exquisite. Each suite is unique; the website only gives a hint of what to...

We just returned from 4 days at Riad Farnatchi (myself and two children). It was simply an elegant experience from beginning to end. Property: James and his family purchased the riad in a state of disrepair several years ago and have completed a stunning remodel. The hand-carved plasterwork throughout the riad (door frames, arches, ceiling borders) was the architectural highlight...

Having never been to Marrakech before, I had mixed feelings of excitement and trepidation on entering the Medina. All feelings of nervousness was instantly dissipated upon arrival at the Farnatchi. The staff were charming, helpful, discreet and exceptionally polite. The villa its self can only be described as a "luxury oasis" quietly tucked away in the centre of the old...

OK - so Marrakesh is wonderfully and gloriously mad, and a truly great place to visit with its moped-filled alleys and general chaos. But it is only fun in short, hot, dust filled snatches. Among this madness, the Riad Farnatchi is an oasis of much needed calm. Despite all the hubbub outside, as soon as the front door shuts, you...

Absolutely beautiful, wonderful staff and an oasis of calm within the madness of Marrakesh. This was our first visit to Morocco and could not have wished for a better place to stay. The Riad was close to the Souks and square. THe staff were very helpful with information regarding trips either within the Medina walls - which can be a...

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
