Hi, just a quick rave review for the Dar Charkia riad in Marrakech... Our experience was lovely. The riad has incredible style, and is really a little oasis in the heart of the chaos of the city. What really made this experience unique was the great advice that Lisa gave us upon arrival, including everything from tips to a great...

Dar Charkia is a very attractive and welcoming riad with exceptionally helpful staff - nothing is too much trouble. We were 3 girls travelling together and it was the perfect haven to relax with a G&T after a busy day exploring Morocco. Lisa, who runs the riad, is charming and her great advice about places to go was invaluable -...

We were made to feel as if Dar Charkia was our home. Lisa, Michael, Abdu and the staff were warm and helpful in planning days and outings. The Dar was relaxed and comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding and could be taken either on the rooftop overlooking the medina, in your room or in the courtyard. Mint tea was served whenever...

Arriving after midnight on a Thursday evening we were welcomed by a charming member of staff, Abdu, who even at such a late hour was happy to show us a tour and open up the roof terrace. The room was superb, and following a great sleep we awoke to a breafast that more than set us up for the day...

I stayed at Riad Dar Charkia with my two teenage sons, we chose it from the bewildering choice available because Lisa (The owner along with michael) responded to our questions quickly and efficiently, something many other Riads don't. We were not disappointed. Riad Dar Charkia is clean, cosy and beautifully equipped, and the owners do all they can to help...

My wife, Daughter and I flow to Morocco on "Easy Jet" from Madrid and the flight was very smooth.

Dear Hesham, We have noted your comment about the bathroom door and are always receptive to constructive criticism - we have already attached a lovely embroidered curtain there so that when there are clients other than couples using the room there is total privacy in the bathroom. My staff and I love cooking and part of the hospitality of Dar...

We stayed at Dar Charkia for 3 nights in the Khmissa Suite. As the previous reviewers mentioned, the riad is fantastic. Our room was beautifully decorated, bed was comfortable and best of all there was the huge bathroom that had bright lighting. Wi-fi downstairs is great - the fastest we experienced in Morocco.

Two minutes walk from the local taxi rank (and not down really dark alleys like another riad we visited!) this riad is gorgeous. I felt as if I’d walked into a Vogue fashion shoot, everything from the piles of embroidered cushions on your beds, to the handmade cinnamon soap in the glorious shower, were absolute luxury. Every corner has beautiful...
