Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

Dar Fakir a riad renovated and refurbished with passion and originality, reopened to visitors at the beginning of 2011 with an exciting new management team. Elegant and comfortable, dedicated to the peace and service of its guests, everything will be done to please you. Transformed from a local riad home into a hip boutique hotel, it is indeed an oasis in the heart of the medina.

We differ from other riads in that we offer an extensive service over other riads including not only cooking courses but yoga, artisanal workshops and a very intimate service bordering onto concierge at affordable rates. We provide extras such as meet and greet throughout your stay if required by our night guardian during the evenings and at night. Mobile phones for local calls are loaned free of charge to guests on request. 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 4 languages are spoken in the riad - English, German, Swedish, French.

The shady garden patio is the centerpiece around which the individually designed rooms are arranged. While the roof terrace is the perfect place to relax in the evening and enjoy a drink beneath the stars, or for soaking up the sun and the local sounds from the souk during the day. The guest lounges have an oriental theme with a carved Buddha presiding over the reception area and an interesting array of artifacts from India, Thailand and Morocco are scattered around the riad.

Dar Fakir is a short stroll from all the sights and attractions of bustling Marrakech. It is less than 5 minutes walking distance of the Jemaa el Fna Square. Experience the bustle of the crowded souk, the vibrancy of this fascinating culture and the wonderful sights and sounds from this well-located boutique hotel.

The 4 suites and 3 rooms are individually styled with a fusion of contemporary décor and local Moroccan style. Ornate Berber mirrors, glass lanterns and bold colours make each room warm and inviting. 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. The bathrooms are modern and spacious.

We welcome you to experience the ambience of Dar Fakir.
