It's a small place with very few rooms (I think just 6), comfortable bed, large bathroom, big rooms, it's quiet and peaceful, and very important to us, it's within walking distance of the heart of Marrakech: we thought it was a jewel. Breakfasts were continental, but with fresh juice, homemade breads, homemade yogurt, baked goods. I would stay there again... More

We really liked this place. It is a beautiful house which has been sympathetically modernised and is impeccably maintained. It is also lovely to have a wood fire int e sitting room and a Hammam within the hotel so you can go straight from there to your room. But what makes the place really special is the staff. Nothing is... More

Simple studded black door is the entrance to this unique little riad just off Rue de Kasbah (just 6 rooms total - half suites and half superior rooms). We were in the upstairs suite which is the room featured in the brochure. We loved it - and especially liked the interior design of the riad which combined simple honey creamy... More

I cannot recommend this riad enough. The pictures do not do it justice, and it is a blissful and quiet refuge from the busy streets of Marrakech. The staff were kind and helpful. Even though we had not ordered dinner in advance but showed up at 7pm, they went out of their way to rustle up the most delicious three... More

I have stayed in 3 different riad in Marrakech in the last 4 years, but this one was the best by far. It was previously owned by the french interpretor of Mohamed V. The riad has 2 separate inner courtyards, one with a garden and one with a pool ( which marrakech standard is quite big ). There is a... More

Beautiful and quiet! Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The service is really nice, staff is helpful. Breakfast and dinner were really delicious and was served in the garden under the trees. Roof terrace is also wonderful. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful & authentic. Rooms are very comfortable, wonderfully decorated and have lots of character! Very good service and good location. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone but especially to couples.

The Riad is peaceful and well-maintained with spacious communal areas where you could relax and feel tucked away from other guests. (Big!) delicious breakfast & a gorgeous evening meal served under the orange trees (good value at €20 pp and house wine €20 per bottle.) Service was excellent- staff were discrete and keen to please and platters of fruit by... More

Just back from a wonderful weekend at Riad Dar Karma in Marrakesh. We took over the Riad to celebrate a special birthday with a small group of friends and we could not have made a better choice. Stephanie and her team are charming, discreet and extremely professional. The food was delicious, the rooms are beautiful and the roof terrace is... More
