OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You're deep in the heart of the medina; Rue Souk el Fassis isn't easy to find but if you call the hotel they will send someone to meet you and carry any luggage. Transfers from the airport are complimentary and take 20 minutes. There is no parking. The excellent Maison de la Photographie de Marrakech is close by as is Ben Youssef Madrasa, a historic Islamic college, is one of the city's top sights.

By plane: direct flights from London to Marrakech Menara take around 4 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Book flights to Marrakech.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Built around three courtyards with multiple staircases, Le Farnatchi takes some working out but has plenty to enjoy including a pool, roof terrace and spa. Interiors exemplify the skills of Moroccan craftworkers in a splendid array of carved wood and plaster, patterned tiles, ornate metalwork and richly coloured textiles.

THE FACILITIES

The ground level, 22ft swimming pool is perfect for a cooling dip after tramping the souks. The riad employs over 40 staff and service is fast and friendly. Guests are given a local mobile phone which is handy in case you get lost or need advice. Tea and coffee are complimentary throughout the day.
