Amazing stay
I have an amazing stay at Riad Faraj. I was warmly welcomed with a pot of mint tea - very refreshing after a long flight. Abdullah was brilliant - he was on hand to give me advice on day trips, resturants, how to get to other cities and took care of a lot of the bookings. His welcoming and friendly persona made my trip very special. The rooms are gorgeous, and clean and the location is superb for the Jemaa el Fna Square and the souks, but remain peaceful at the same time.

Lovely hideaway in Medina
I was on a business trip with two others and the hotel was wonderful. Very nice staff, very helpful. Truly right in the Medina so lots of access. Recommend the shuttle from the airport (they provide) if you haven't driven in Marrakech. Glad we did. Though, they did help others park. Overall, very peaceful retreat considering the location.

Riad Faraj
The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great being close to the medina, square, tombs, and palace. The Bahia Palace, the Jardin Secret, and the Jardin Marjorelle were my favorite. Marrakech is beautiful and intense with many nice people to help at a price. Two very nice meals at the Riad. Great roof top patio.

Oasis in the Medina
Riad Faraj is an oasis in the heart of Marrakech. It is completely quiet on the terrace or by the pool, where the water rolls down a black marble wall and swifts fly over your head. In spite of this it is only a 2 minute walk from the Jmaa El Fnaa - perhaps the liveliest Market in Morocco. Monsieur Abdo is extremely welcoming, and is very attentive to his guests. While here I ate in the Riad almost every night where the chef prepares beautiful Tajine chicken, beef, or fish, depending on availability in the market. The one night I ate out it cost more, and the food was not as good. I also took advantage of the on location spa, where a traditional Moroccan massage will transform your day. You can't beat this gem for a stay in Marrakech.

2/10 Poor

Amazing 2 star place, not 4 stars.
Place is great for a 2 star rated accomodation. This is NOT a 4 star accomodation. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE THEY LOCK THE FLOOR FROM THE OUTSIDE MASSIVE FIRE LIFE SAFETY HAZARD!!!! we wanted to leave at 6.30am for our hot air balloon ride - we couldn’t leave because they had locked the whole floor level from the outside. We had to knock very loud as there was no intercom or contact number to dial. The person then came rudely awoken form their sleep due to our knocking and annoyed why and where we were going at 6.30am!!! How on earth is that any of your business. You do NOT lock an egress pathway, ever !!!! There are no toiletries provided. Water is charged for. No kettle or tea facilities. Moroccon welcome hospitality at start then charged for mint tea that was offered. No tissues in room, when asked for tissue got given two pieces of serviettes. Had to ask for toilet roll. Room cleaning is NOT everyday. Towels are only every second day !!!! (How on earth is that 4 star????????). Would highly recommend to stay at an internationally recognised 4 star hotel and not a self claimed 4 star Riad. We had as silver hotels.com member beverage credit. Yet we were charged for water on check out aswell. Our credit amount outweighed 5 folds the amount of water that was charged so instead of giving us free water to the equivalent value of the beverage credit, we were charged.

I have nothing negative to say about Riad Faraj. It is a beautiful, clean place with outstanding staff. it is well located close to the action but not on a busy street. The spacious roof terrace is a pleasant place to enjoy the evening. .

8/10 Very Good

Stayed for 4 nights. The riad is in a great location, close to a lot of the sights. It is down a quiet road so once you step into the riad you are in calm quiet environment which is perfect after the craziness outside! The riad has plenty of outdoor space to relax. We liked the loungers on the roof terrace where we could lie in the sun. The staff are super helpful and friendly. Rooms are a good size, well maintained although basic. There’s no tv, no coffee making facility and the bed is very hard. They are the only negatives and we could live with that. Lovely shower gel and shampoo are included and a hairdryer. Breakfast is also included and is continental style and tasty and changes daily. Overall happy with this stay and would recommend.

The riad is beautiful! Such a big guesthouse for 6 rooms. So many places to relax and chill, including the roof. The staff were lovely, cannot fault. If visiting Morocco again, will definitely book Riad Faraj.

Wonderful Riad in Marrakech
Riad Faraj is beautifully decorated and kept immaculate at all times. The staff, reception, cleaning and cooking were all very professional and friendly. I found them to be very accommodating. The Riad is in the medina, close to all the action and a great experience. The only thing to be aware of (and not a criticism) is that the Riad is in one of the back alleys of the Medina. But don't let this stop you because once you enter the big wooden door, it is a great place to stay.
