How to Get There

Riad Farnatchi
Derb el Farnatchi, Rue Souk el Fassis
Marrakech, 40000 Morocco



From arrival to departure, our stay at Riad Farnatchi was simply perfect. These historic buildings have been restored with traditional techniques including stunning plasterwork, contributing to a very authentic feel, yet with the panache of a clean and cool luxury hotel. Our room was opulent yet bohemian which was exactly what we were looking for. The service was warm and efficient, the staff unwaveringly charming and accommodating. Do not miss eating at the Trou au Mur restaurant (same management, entrance opposite the Riad): Great atmosphere on the roof terrace, delicious aubergine starter and fabulous lamb dish, with professional service. The best meal we had in Marrakech, and better value than the other restaurants we visited.

Another dimension of quality, service & spa

First time in Marrakesch you feel a bit lost. But right after booking Le Farnatchi you feel in best possible hands as they organize everything for you: shuttle & guide to the Hotel, Tourguide to experience the city not only by accident, squad-trip to desert, booking restaurants, serving drinks & meals wherever you want and a Hamam plus Massage you will never forget. Hamam started with Fatima who did an outstanding job. Afterwards I enjoyed a 60-Minutes massage with Ahmed. That was the best massage of my entire life. I‘m very thankful to the entire team of Le Farnatchi who made this stay magnetic.

Manifique Hotel with excellent Service and Great Spa. I strongly recommend a facial with Fatima. She did an amazing Job! You can either chill on the beatiful rooftop or at multiple fireplaces around the riad
