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...

From the moment we walked into Riad Karmela, my sister and I were treated excellently. The staff are so incredibly helpful, speak great English and keep the place spotless! The riad is very beautiful - the courtyard with the traditional Moroccan fountain is very pleasant at breakfast, which itself is also lovely (and without limit!) I'd recommend the Hammam scrub...

We stayed at Riad Karmel for one night prior to our tour of Southern Morocco and then a further three nights at the end of the tour to have a look around Marrakesh. It is essential to book a transfer to the Riad from the airport if you do not want to get lost! This worked very smoothly and it...

I have rated this 5 stars but do just have to say this isn't a luxury hotel with all the amenities that you would have if you were in one. If you want that then this isn't for you. However, what this does have is charm personified. Prior to arriving, very quick at responding to emails with questions, requests and...

This was our first time in Marrakech, we spent two nights here. We decided to spring for the King Suite with the Private Rooftop (Abdou Suite) and we were not disappointed. The ground floor of the Riad is beautiful with comfortable sitting areas and great staff. The owner (Joel) is always around and is gracious and helpful. They opened a...

Well placed for visiting the medina on foot. 10 minute walk from the Place Jemma El Fna, and despite that very calm and relaxing at all times of the day and night. The first time you go it's advisable to contact and ask the reception to book you a taxi from wherever you're arriving. The driver will get you to...

This place is just the place you need in Marrakech! The interior is in the magnificent morrocan style, with ornamented doors, tiles and carpets. The Riad has many small silent corners to enjoy a cop of tea or wine, an amazon rooftop terrace with a wiew and green plant and orange trees all over! We were looking for a little...
