I stayed for 2 nights and it was an amazing experience I felt right at home, welcomed by Hamza and looked aftered by Samra whom prepared the meals and kept the riad nice and tidy. I must say the location is perfect, it's a 10min walk to the main square, everything is local and near by, you can't ask for... More

We wanted an authentic Riad in the heart of Marrakesh and boy this establishment did not disappoint guys..........it was a truly remarkable stay................ The location is in the heart of the Kasbah in amongst a myriad of alleyways and courtyards but it is quite easy to find if you have a good sense of direction. The place/photos is as described...

In the heart of the Kasbah, this is a lovely little Riad. Through a few windy little streets in the Kasbah and you're well on the way to Jma el Fna. It's about a 15-25 minute walk, depending on how fast you walk; and its a very easy route to remember so you shouldn't need to worry about possibly getting... More

My friends and I took three rooms at Riad Karim over a long weekend. I booked the place not on cost, but because I had hoped for an authentic Marrakesh experience, and my expectations were well exceeded. The property is cool, in a quiet place (yet an easy walk to everywhere we wanted to see) and really nice place to... More

Nestled between the bustling streets of the kasbah this cosy riad is a welcomed sight for the mind, body and soul. If your looking for an authentic experience of Marrakech life then look no further. Outside the riad the locals go about their daily business and you really feel a sense of time travel. All major tourist sights are only... More

We had a very nice time at Riad Karim, a warm thank you to Khalid, Zaki for advising us and making us feel so much welcome. They are all very friendly people & Samra prepares very nice breakfast! They suggested to take care of our daughter who would be arriving a few days after we left, and didnt want to... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Riad Karim and would highly recommend it for a short break. Located in the Kasbah, admittedly it is impossible to find without help from the locals (who expected a generous tip!) but once found, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and had no trouble finding our way to and from the Riad after...

Riad Karim is brilliant and I would recommend it to any friend or family member traveling to Marrakech.  You will read comments below complaining about difficulty finding the Riad, about being woken by the call to prayer, or about crowds of people hanging out on the streets near the front door. My honest opinion is that if these things are... More
