Location is good, only 10 minutes walking to the main square. The riad is quiet and is decorated with elegance. We met with Ahmed in the skirts of Marrakech and showed us a place to park the car. At the Riad, we were given a map and were told about places of interest and what to avoid. We were also... More

This place was far superior than expected the manager and staff are very friendly and nothing is a trouble. The meals and breakfasts are great and I they have beer and wine chilling in the fridge that's not expensive. I got up before my friends most morning and the cook would ring me a coffee with a friendly bonjour as... More

We stayed in this riad for 4 nights in January. A bit difficult to find, in a narrow pedestrian pathway, with no exterior signs directing you to it. Location is good if you do not mind walking 10 minutes to the main square. The riad is quiet and is decorated with understated elegance, nothing flashy out of place. We had... More

We stayed in this riad for 4 nights in January. It is located down a rather unattractive pedestrian pathway with a falling down building to one side and is unlit, so tricky at night, but the location is very close to the square and to the souks. Once inside the front door a beautiful riad and oasis of calm awaits.... More

My family stayed here and were slightly disappointed to be honest. The riad is not as nice as the photos suggest and after staying in 8 riads in morroco (3 in marrakesh) I feel it is overpriced in comparison to the others as we stayed in less expensive riads that were nicer. Staff friendly enough but breakfast was disappointing. Very... More

Us 6 stayed for 2 nights at the end of December. The rooms was lovely, clean and tidy. It was nice to have robes available for us to use as well. Coming from our tour in the sahara desert back into marrakesh, we had no idea how to get to the riad, our guide contacted the riad and someone came... More

My husband and I sadly lost our son earlier in the year and so decided we needed to 'escape' christmas and go somewhere completely different where we could 'lose' ourselves in a different culture. The day before we were due to fly, we had our passports stolen. We contacted all of the riads and tour companies we had booked and... More

Dear customers tripadvisor We hope that you will not hold account of this criticism. In fact, these customers have booked a non-refundable room on booking.com and asked us many times to change their reservation (by reducing the number of nights) was accepted as their reservation was non-refundable and non-changeable means .

Have just returned from our 4 day break staying in Riad Karmanda. What a lovely Riad it is. So peaceful and clean amid the chaos of the old Medina of Marrakech. Mina cooked us a lovely meal on our arrival which was very welcome after our journey. A taxi collected us from the airport and thankfully took us to Riad... More

Despite having read good reviews for Riad Karmanda before our stay, it really didn't live up to its description and we were disappointed. The manager was sleazy and tried to over charge us for our stay. We were unable to use credit card as advertised so cash was the only option, which wasn't a big deal. We paid for a... More
