We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this Beautiful Riad!! Definitely recommend, unbelievably peaceful, all rooms lovely and clean, with a lovely authentic feel. Quite hard to find though- we had slight trouble when we arrived but just make sure you have the address and map of the location and should be easy for a taxi to find. Make sure no-one... More

Luckily we had two small padlocks so everyday we made sure we locked everything inside our suitcases before leaving the Riad. It didn't feel unsafe but then again, we were the... More

Myself and a friend stayed at Riad Karmanda for 4 nights last week. We stayed in one room the first night, then we were moved to the 'Marrakech suite' which is the room we had booked. None of this was a problem...it was nice to see what the other rooms had to offer. Rooms were always kept clean and the... More

I booked the Riad Karmanda, and during our trip someone from their staff stole money from my backpack which I left in the room, leaving only the $5.00 bills and the $1.00 bills. ( yes my mistake) They don't supply locks nor do they offer any locks. After taking a shower the bathroom smelled like a sewer for hours. The... More

Our room and bathroom were clean and spacious, the roof was a great place for wine and beer before heading out... More

Staff were excellent and could not do enough for us. We left 120mad(roughly 2 weeks wages for the locals)in a dressing gown and got it back when it went in for laundry. Riad is located in a quieter part of town within easy walking distance to the touristy square.It was clean and the roof terrace was beautiful and a welcome... More

Ahmed was so helpful giving us tips about the visit -and the breakfast was lovely. Also had a hammam (scrub) at the Riad which was fab. Would highly recommend this... More

We stayed at Riad Karmanda for 7 nights during late November and early December. The Riad staff were helpful prior to arrival promptly confirming booking details and our questions about our stay, also arranging a taxi transfer for us, which was invaluable as the Riad is in a narrow alleyway that would be near impossible to find without assistance.

Stayed at this Riad for 4 nights. We had an enjoyable stay, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, giving us directions and advice in where to visit and helping us with our flight times after the times changed. We had a lovely meal on the first evening and would recommend it to any guests. The breakfast was lovely... More
