From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Riad Farnatchi's five beautifully decorated rooms never let you forget you're in Morocco, with tadlekt walls, Berber carpets, hand-forged lamps, and handsomely hand-tiled bedside tables; bathrooms are equally stunning, with marble tubs, yellow granite sinks, and Philippe Stark fixtures. Although rooms are swish, what really makes this place sing are the public spaces, including two courtyards—one with a lap pool, the other with a hamman—and a lushly planted rooftop with views over Marrakech.—2005 Hot List
