El Fenn was truly one of the most incredible places I've ever stayed in my life. A beautiful property, architecturally and stylistically, curated with an incredible eye for detail — chic, clean, hospitable, so very romantic and special. Great food, GREAT (!) service — really the...More
I was hesitant to write this review because I wanted to keep El Fenn my little secret. Everything from the decor, to the service (thank you Belaid) to the location was impeccable. El Fenn far surpassed our expectations and we will definitely be back!
Although the prices here compare with London or New York, this rooftop terrace is not one to miss. It’s an absolutely stunning atmosphere, fantastic staff and wonderful drinks! A great spot for sunset! Highly recommend!
The most beautiful lunch spot in the medina. We had a deliciously healthy lunch - Quinoa with green apples and onions, Moroccan beans , lettuces with Argan citrusy dressing and sea food Tagine and beautiful rose wine. Everything was perfect in terms of flavour and...More

With 20 individually styled rooms and suites, a four-bedroom private riad, 3 swimming pools and its own hammam spa, El Fenn is a unique boutique hotel combining grandeur and historic architecture with hideaway nooks, terraces and gardens - making it the most peaceful place from which to enjoy Africa's most exotic city.Our story began with two friends on the hunt for a small riad to buy as a holiday home. It was 2002 when Vanessa Branson and Howell James walked into the almost ruined courtyard of one of Marrakech's formerly great private homes. Nearing dusk and with the sound of the muezzin's call to prayer echoing in the air, they instantly fell in love with the atmospheric house which was being sold with three smaller neighbouring homes. They soon realised that their holiday home was going to become so much more.At the time, only a handful of Marrakech's riads had been converted to small hotels and Vanessa and Howell knew they wanted to open a place offering something different - a home from home retreat that combined great food and service with the spirit of the building's past and a contemporary decorative twist. During a two-year renovation, local craftsman used traditional techniques to breathe new life into the building. Polished lime plastering was used in a rainbow of colours to create walls, baths and bed frames, original tiling was renovated and carved cedar ceilings restored. Retro furniture sourced from local flea markets was combined with one-off bespoke pieces to create a unique interior. Less

At El Fenn they serve an excellent, homemade yogurt with homemade topping, bread, homemade jam, and any type of egg you want. Plus great fruit salad The only thing I was missing was a few types of cheese :)
