We had an excellent stay at the Riad. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The Riad itself was modest, good rooms with bathrooms and a nice roofterasse. Nice breakfast, and they also served good dinner for us one night. If we go back to Marrakech, we certainly would stay there again. And I will recommend it to my friends.

Met some fantastic people staying in this riad, the staff especially. I'd recommend anyone visiting marrakech to stay here, it feels more like staying at a friend's place than a guest house. Beautifully decorated.

We had an amazing long weekend in Riad Karim, it was our first time in Marrakech (coming from NY), the service was great (even if we arrived quite late), the room was clean and the location is amazing, very close to Jammaa el fna place, so you really feel like you live with the locals, we definitly recommend this place!

My husband and i stayed there one and a half yr ago, therefore we decided to come back with other family members for a few days. the responsible ones we knew don't work there anymore. There has been a change of management, or a lack which was quite disapointing. Hamza (the new responsible one) and Samra tried to make our... More

We booked our stay for 3 days via Expedia. We took the train from Fes to Marakkech last week and arrived around 10 PM. Our taxi driver was very friendly and he walked us to the door. Upon arrival no one was there. We rang the bell and we knocked and no one came to the door. Our taxi driver... More

Arrived at 21:00 completely unprepared for our vacation to Marrakech - Hamza and his brother took us under their wing and invited us to eat dinner (English / French conversations) and to go out with them to Matrakech's best nightclub - Theatro. Wonderful first night! The next afternoon they helped us orientate ourselves in relationship to all the sites we... More

Marrakech is a nice place, but this Riad could spoil your visit. We stayed 3 nights, unfortunately paid in advance: * when we arrived we only got to hear we had to pay an extra amount. No cup of mint tea as a sign of hospitality, as in other hotels we've been to in Morroco * our first night we... More

At Riad Karim, my husband and I were made the reservation for 5 days but it was full when we arrived. Therefore we should stayed three days at a nearby hotel. The location of the hotel in Kasbah is the first difficult to find, so it is better if you take a taxi from the airport. Later, when you understand... More

I stayed for 4 nights from 16/9/13. Beautiful building, friendly helpful staff, a haven in the centre of the manic Kasbah, you couldn't be more in the heart of the old town and feel & live traditional Morocco. It's a 10 min walk to the main square, via various routes. The Riad has a roof terrace which was a welcome... More
