We decided to give Marrakesh a try and wanted to get a feel for the "real" Marrakesh as opposed to the hotel life style. The Riad is well situated in the Medina near to the main square, the Kasbah and other places of interest. We were glad that the riad arranged to have us picked up as it would not... More

Location was excellent. It is only a 3 to 5 minute walk to the Jemaa El Fna and the souks beyond the square. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was simple but enough to get you through the morning. The view from the terrace was just simply stunning. Mohamed and Yousef were extremely accommodating and friendly. Will definitely come back... More

The Riad I booked had a burst water pipe so while it was being sorted out I had the pleasure of staying at Riad Chalymar for 2 nights. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The staff were very attentive and looked after our every needs. A special thankyou to Abduhla and Aziz for there patience.... More

The owners are dishonest, rude and unwelcoming! The Riad is located down dark, poorly lit alleyways, strewn with rubbish. English is not spoken, making it very difficult to communicate and request or ask for anything!! Breakfast was disappointing, The swimming pool was tiny and full of flies!! The room was dark as half of the lights did not work. The... More

I am Jean-Jacques, Chalymar's owner I've never seen you, I don't know you and I hope I won't because you just bragged about leaving hotels without paying the bill. More

I stayed on my own in October and had a wonderful stay. As arranged a driver was at the airport to meet me in an air conditioned taxi. He took my luggage and straight to the Riad. I'd requested a Lamb tagine as I was arriving late in the evening and was served this on the beautiful terrace by Aziz.... More

Just come back and really pleased that we chose Riad Chalymar- as it gave us a real 'feel' for Marrakesh. Staying in one of the plush places in the Palmeraie or Hivernage district would have been more luxurious - but the size (only 6 rooms so great for a small group, up to 15) and age (beautifully aged mellow floor...

Stayed here last week. The staff were friendly and Youssef in particular was very helpful and informative (though he did forget to pick us up at the airport...my advice is email the day before you travel just to remind him or take down the number of the riad and give them a call when you are at the airport...its only...

The staff were extremely friendly and they even picked us up and dropped us off to the airport free of charge. The Riad was lovely and the roof terrace was perfect for relaxing after you had spent the day in the hustle and bustle of the city. We were really close to the main square too so it was easy...

I stayed at this Riad with a friend last year (two females). Booked this Riad after reading all the positive reviews. But sadly our experience was not positive and i am shocked by the glowing reviews. It all started wrong when we were supposed to get picked up from airport by mr Jean Paul. I emalied our flight details in... More

The staff at the Riad went out of their way to help us achieve everything that we wanted to do on our trip. The Riad itself is nicely decorated and it’s about a five minute walk away from Djemaa el-Fna, so very conveniently located. However, when we arrived we found it quite hard to navigate our way through the back... More
