Profile: Medina

Profile: Medina

The bustling Medina of Marrakech, the historic district right at the city's center, is its liveliest neighborhood. At its center is the Djemma El-Fna, a town square surrounded by street bazaars where fruit stalls, food vendors, snake charmers, and acrobats draw large crowds into the late evening hours.

The Medina also boasts many Riads, palatial Moroccan mansions with rooms surrounding a central open-air courtyard garden. Many of these buildings have been converted into luxurious hotel accommodations for visitors looking to live like Moroccan royalty.

    The Riad is in the Médina which for first time visitors can be daunting at first! I would recommend either a taxi from the airport (they are cheaper outside if you want to walk a bit) or arranging one from the Riad itself! We don’t speak French so communication was sometimes difficult with the night staff but the manager in the daytime was wonderful! It is located down what we would describe as an alleyway but a normal walkway in the Médina!! So it doesn’t look very attractive from the outside but once inside it’s absolutely amazing!! Beautiful courtyard water fountain!! The room small but more than adequate!! The rooftop terrace was wonderful and a great respite after a day of hussle and busel in the Médina!! The breakfast in the courtyard was delicious-the freshly squeezed orange juice incredible!! We stayed here 5 nights in total but it was broken up as we left for two days to go to the desert and one day to Essaouira (which is a must) it can be a day trip but an overnight is best-just buy your tickets ahead of time as the bus fills up quickly-you can also get a cab with 4 other people for a bit more(we did that going-while we were away they happily stored our luggage-no charge!! This Riad was wonderful and would definitely stay again! Our only complaint is there are three watch dogs tied up near the Riad they are friendly but sometimes bark at night which disturbed our sleep!!! We did not feel insecure at any time!! Wonderful staff!!!

    We stayed here for several nights during our trip to Marrakech. Great location, a quick walk to the square and other major attractions. The staff were very kind and accommodating. We had some issues with the hot water one day but otherwise the experience was great. Definitely recommend it!

    Riad Faraj was the nicest Riad we stayed in during our 2.5 week travels in Morocco, including 2 others in Marrakech. It was clean and stylish - a lovely place to escape too after a busy day of seeing the sites. The best bit was its kind staff. My husband and I are animal lovers. Just a few hours before leaving Marrakech (for Canada) we met a tiny kitten very much in need on the street outside the Riad (it had a badly infected eye). We asked the staff to help us get the kitten some vet treatment, and left some $$ to do so. We had to trust their goodwill to help. Their very kind and competent staff person Mouhcine agreed to help us out. He event sent us photos of the cat at the vets, and in his home, being cleaned. We are so grateful for his kindness and help, knowing there are a lot of animals in Marrakech in need.

    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.

    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.

    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.
