Lovely authentic Riad with great staff, helpful and friendly, in particular Meena who was the nicest person you could wish to meet, her breakfasts were great, we had a traditional evening meal one evening which was lovely as well. 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

We have just returned from this trip to Marrakesh which we thoroughly enjoyed. The Riad was fabulous and everything that we envisaged. It was typically Moroccan with very friendly staff. 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. The... More

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

We arrived after a busy flight at 8pm to be met by the cook who knew nothing about our stay.She made a call, guided us to our room and advised that the manager would be with us shortly.He never...

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
