My only complaint is that we didn't have more time in Marrakech and more time to relax at this riad - it's truly so wonderful and a little piece of heaven nestled into the craziness. The main area of the riad is so tranquil - there is a fountain and there are turtles that just roam around! And the terrace...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 December 2016

I went for my birthday weekend in December. The Riad is impeccable. We got upgraded to a suite on the first floor which was really nice. All the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We booked the airport transfer through them as most of the reviews said it is impossible to find. Actually, with google map is not that difficult....

Excellent location, place and people. We don't normally eat or sit around in hotels but this was too nice a place not to do so - and the Marrakech experience starts as soon as you step out from the calm and tranquility of the Riad. We took the airport pick-up option and advanced-booked dinner the first night and would strongly...

Brought my partner here for her 50th birthday and could not have been more pleased with my choice. As we booked direct with the riad our transfer by taxi was included in the price of the accommodation and they delivered us straight to the door. If you're making your own way from the airport it would be tricky to find...

Beautiful riad, trickling water, palms and plants, birds!, very friendly and helpful. lovely buffet breakfast, our room was spotless. The riad is very central, easy to walk to the souks, museum etc, I would absolutely stay here again. The roof terrace is a quiet and relaxing space.

We booked the room in the Riad Petite Karmela but got upgraded to Riad Karmela! It is a real treat :) The design is exceptional and the locations is also great! Everything was spotless, bed comfortable and staff nice. The rooftop is amazing during sunset, a piece of heaven among the busy streets of Medina! We tried to reach it...

This location was great for walking to all the sights. The orientation at check-in was extremely helpful as we have never been to Morocco. We enjoyed mint tea and sweets upon check-in as well as in the evenings as we watched the sunset from the rooftop lounge. It was key to be arrange a pickup from the airport and a...

In the heart of the Medina but not far from many of the tourist locations it was very calm. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and the roof terrace a superb location to relax after a lot of walking. Our room was spacious and comfortable, although I prefer duvets to blankets. In short a great stzay.

We visited the riad mid february and were picked up at the airport by their taxi service. The place is very hard to find for a first time visitor, so I'd advise that. The riad has the friendliest employees, great beds, a wonderful roof terrace, great breakfast, and a small courtyard pool for hot days. The owner helped me buying...
