We spent 4 wonderful nights in Farnatchi and will return to Marrakech on our next trip to Morrocco just to repeat the experience. The staff were wonderful; very friendly, knowledgeable about local sights and bookings and forward planning within Morocco. Nothing was too much trouble for James and his team.The rooms were very comfortable. Our small group had booked 2...

I have wanted to go to magical Marrakech for years after admiring the beauty and history in magazines and books and finally got there this summer. It sounds overly dramatic but when I entered Riad Farnatchi from the tiny alley (which looks like nothing special) my breath was taken away and I had tears in my eyes because it was...

I recently stayed at Farnatchi for the second time and I was not disappointed. They still maintain the wonderful friendly service and superb food that I'd remembered from my first trip there three years ago and the rooms were very much the same (except for updated TVs and new Bose iPod Dock). I stayed in Suite 6 this time which...

We have just returned from our trip to Marrakech, where we stayed in Riad Farnatchi for two nights. 28th and 29th May. We are a family of four, our kids are 2 and 4, we were worried before we arrived that it might not be child friendly or they might get bored, how wrong we were. As soon as we...

The Farnatchi is beyond praise. We stayed for three days, at the end of a 12-day trip to Morocco, and this beautiful riad ended our vacation on a very high note. When we asked for something, it was never too much trouble. The pool was almost too beautiful to swim in, and the tile, plaster, and wood work were museum...

This is a fantastic place. They are organized to deliver service that exceeds every expectation. It is rare to find any place where they clearly are actively trying to think how they can exceed every desire by something exceptional. I stayed for 3 nights in suite #4. This is a spacious room, with a balcony to one central courtyard and...

My husband and I travelled with two teenage girls to Marrakech and had the good fortune of staying at the Riad Farnatchi. We credit the Riad owner (James W) and his staff for making our first visit to Marrakech special and unique. In this day of chain hotels and conglomerates, we are finding exotic travel experiences to be difficult to...

I should have written earlier regarding my stay at Riad Farnatchi. I have not reviewed an hotel before - probably through simple inertia - but having recommended (actually insisted) that any friend who would listen should stay at Riad Farnatchi, I was astonished to hear from one of them, who had just looked it up on Trip Advisor, that someone...

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
