Firstly, I'll say that Charlotte - the owner - went above and beyond to assist us before we even arrived in Morocco. Very prompt enquiries to emails, allocated the room I requested based on the photographs, clear instructions for airport pick-up (which she offered), excursion recommendations and finally even booking a full-day excursion for us before we arrived. As slightly... More

I booked our first night in Marrakesh at this riad as it looked the best on Airbnb. I have stayed before in 2 different riads and they were both such a nice experience, beautifully decorated and lovely but this one was simply a big disappointment. The owner- Charlotte was quite rude by email. Not only it took her long time... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the riad for four nights. We arranged the airport transfer offered by the riad which was a good decision as the streets of Marrakech are difficult to navigate and there is no real sign for the riad. Usef who runs al Faras was lovely. He met us on arrival and after letting us settle... More

This was an amazing find. It's located minutes from the main square. The staff was extremely nice and went out of the way to make our stay extremely memorable.

After a long trip from UK, we arrived here quite late in the evening. We were met from our taxi and ushered through some very narrow, extremely busy and decrepit alleyways. I was getting increasingly anxious as we went deeper into the Medina, but I did not need to worry, as when at last we were ushered through a non-descript... More
