A very beautiful riad in the centre of the old city. Very helpfull people, who only speak French and very little Englisch. Nice pool to cool off after a hot day in the city. Delicious breakfast every morning. Nice rooms in Maroc style. Perfect Riad for a next visit.

Very helpful staff, met us at the airport, pointed out places to go, cooked fresh food for dinner and breakfast, highly recommended. Rooms were cooled by fan which was very welcome, terrace on roof to catch some rays then dip in the cold plunge pool after, relaxing way to spend a hot day.

Beautiful Riad a good distance from the main square. The staff couldnt help you enough and were absolutely wonderful (limited English so be sure to practise your French) and the place itself was very pretty and tastefully decorated. We had breakfast on the rooftop terrace every morning which was delicious. I have recommended to my parents and friends! Great place... More

This Riad is a lovely place and the small pool is a bonus! Tastefuly decorated, simple but super clean rooms. The lunches and diners were so good (although quite pricey...). The only thing is probably the noise: you just can't escape the mosque's call to prayer at night. Even with earplugs! And riads are not necessarily the place to go... More

Riad Chamali is definitely a hidden gem. From the moment you arrive, you're welcomed into a personal paradise by the sweetest staff and presented with a refreshing taste of local delicacies. The riad manager Moutaa is like a long time friend that you've come to visit - she is warm, helpful and extremely kind. The rooms are a good size... More

Lovely riad with simple but nice rooms. We spent two great nights there, the service was very good. It is not far away from the Jemaa El Fna square, and easy to find. We recommend it and we hope we can come back soon :)

My sister and i only spent our last night here before the airport the following day, but to be honest wished we'd booked longer. It's a lovely riad and very good value for money. The rooms were good, a little basic, and perhaps not as well furnished as others we stayed in, but when you're out and about all day,... More

Riad Chamali is not right in the centre of Marrakech but it is close to the Bahia Palace and El Badi Palace. All the action happens in Jemaa El Fna Square which is about a 15 minute walk from the Riad. First impressions are a bit off-putting as you arrive through very narrow alleyways to a very ordinary door, but... More

Stayed at Riad Chamali for only one night but made an everlasting memory. The service was impeccable. We were really look after by everybody. The breakfast was amazing, the room decorated very well with a Moroccan feel to it (we really felt in Morocco). The owner was so helpful, she recommended us a very nice place to experience Hammam (even... More

We have stayed in this Riad for 5 nights and we have been really happy to do so. The riad is in a quiet and authentic area of the Marrakech medina. 15 mins walk to Djemaa el-Fnaa square and 5 min to the wonderful Badi palace where a lot of Storks have their nests! The riad is very beautiful and... More
