We spent our holidays in this beautiful riad and it was so worthy! It was a little bit difficult to find at first, but we luckily ran into a Fakir Collection employee close to the main square who guided us through the narrow Medina streets. The riad was so peaceful and beautiful, with small but cosy and clean rooms, comfortable...

My last visit and review was glowing, so I couldn't wait to head back here... I didn't know I'd be so disappointed. Firstly the ground staff at the riad- cook, cleaners, duty manager, night guard are all wonderful. But their talents are wasted by a rude absent manager. I called main manager (who was absent the whole time) to complain...

We arrived at this stunning Riad and couldn't believe how beautiful and calm it was, with an excellent location. The staff on site were really friendly and tentative, and we headed out (in the extreme heat!) for a wander extremely excited and pleased with where we would be staying for a few nights. Unfortunately we noticed quickly on our return...

We recently spent 4 nights at Dar Fakir and management couldn't have been nicer. It is more like staying in a small Bed & Breakfast than a hotel. We stayed in a room with a King Sized Bed and it was very comfortable. The location is very convenient, just about a 5 minute walk into the central square. My only...

My husband and I stayed in Dar Fakir for 4 nights in February and it was wonderful. Before arrival, Hannan was really helpful and organised our transport from the airport and greeted us with a pot of mint tea when we turn up! The rooms were beautifully decorated and we loved the Moroccan lighting! Each morning we had breakfast on...

We had two nights at this Riad (the fourth we have tried in various trips to Marrakesh just to try new places). It compared well with the others. Comfortable, clean rooms with helpful staff and good breakfast. Very similar in standard to the others (all in same price range). Biggest plus - great location - close to the square. Biggest...

We stayed at the Riad Dar Fakir for a long weekend in the middle of October to celebrate my wife's birthday and really enjoyed our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Fakir is a Riad de Charme located just 3 mins walk from Djema el Fnaa square. It reopened at the beginning of 2011 to visitors after a complete refurbishment. We differ from other riads in the sence that we offer an extensive service over other riads including not only the normal cooking courses but yoga, artisanal workshops and a very intimate service bordering onto concierge at very affordable rates. We provide extras such as meet and greet throughout your stay if required by our security guard during the evenings and at night. Mobile phones are provided to guests on request and are free of charge during their stay. We spend a lot of time with the guests making them feel welcome in the riad but also at home in the hectic maze of the Marrakech Medina. In total 5 languages are spoken in the riad - English, German, Swedish, French and the local Arabic, Darija. The rooms all have individually embroided bed linen made from Egyptian Cotton. The toiletries provided by Sence de Marrakech are Shower gel, Body lotion, shampoo and hand soap. For the Suite we can provide black soap and a gommage flannel.All rooms and Suites are decorated in elegant beige tadelakt on the walls as well as in the bathrooms. The floors have terracotta zellige. Rooms and Suites are furnished with traditional dark wood furniture in traditional berber style. The suites in addition have beautiful leather clad writing desks that tastefully match the decor. You will experience the ambience of arabian night in the evening when the handcrafted lamps and lanterns cast magical shadows on the walls. ... more   less
