Unless you are familiar with the medina you will never find this hotel on your own. We had the services of one of the hotel staff but there are plenty of willing helpers, who of course will expect payment (20 dirham or mad per case will do it) The hotel is in a reasonably central location and once you know...

When we arrived the owner informed us about everything and gave us a map. Very nice riad cheap and they know how to work. Riad karmela is the main riad. There you can go and sit drink eat. The owner knows how to work the riad and he is very professional on his job. If I come to marrakech I... More

We stayed at the El Nour as part of a Peregrine tour of Morocco. It's part of the Riad Jarmela, located centrally in the Old Medina, near the souks and Jamaa el Fna square. It was a fabulous end to the trip - the Riad was absolutely gorgeous. Rooms were comfortable, large and stylish, plus the upstairs terrace with plunge... More

We decided to go to morocco for something different. My wife and I are experienced travelers and have been all over. This Riad was an exciting treat. It was in very good condition, within walking distance to everything in he Medena, and the staff made it that much more amazing. We stayed on the El Nour side of the Riad.... More

The El Nour is part of the Riad Karmela, all the services provided are in the Karmela but the rooms and communal living area (like a lounge bit) is in the El Nour. We liked being away from the main Riad, they are literally across the the way so not far at all. The breakfast was lovely, lots of bread!... More

Although we initially booked at Riad el Nour, we ended up staying at Riad Karmela. It was an amazing place with very friendly, helpful and lovely staff. The Riad is a welcome relief after the hectic souks and the roof terrace was beautiful. The meals were great and we had a sensational holiday here.

We stayed at the Riad El Nour for one week in July 2010. It was the first time to Morocco for the both of us and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. From the moment we stepped in the door we were welcomed with an extensive and bespoke brief about the many wonderful things Marrakech has to... More

Clean rooms, great staff. We are a gay couple and we were made to feel very welcome. Location is spot on, just 10 mins from the main square. Would definitely recommend. Marrakech itself is quite expensive and you need to look around to find decent restaurents - don't come here expecting it to be dirt cheap. Usual precautions needed when... More

I was in town for barely 3 days with 6 of my friends. The riad was exactly what we were looking for in terms of location (easy walking distance to the soukhs) and accommodation standard (we all slept very comfortably and very much enjoyed all of the riad's amenities). The owners and staff were very helpful, polite and unintrusive and... More

I've stayed at many Hotels throughout the world but never have I been treated so politely and with such professionalism. Riad El Nour is absolutely perfect for visiting Marrakech, close to all amenities and very close to El Efna Square. Approaching the Riad you'll wonder where on earth you are going as it is situated down a narrow dark alleyway,... More
