I loved the whole experience of the Riad. The aesthetics, the service, the food and the people!! The entrance was so beautiful with the soft light, water fountain and the beautiful scent of fleur d'oranger!! Relaxation and care I felt instantly as soon as I walked in. Entering the courtyard with the swimming pool and walking through to our room... More

Riad Charai was a charming accommodation place in the old Medina, quite easily accessible after initial difficulties, 10-15 minutes to the famous Djemaa el-Fna square. A shuttle service is also available. Riad Charai has a roof sun terrace with a view over the Medina. We enjoyed sufficiently abundant breakfasts along the pool in the patio with palm trees. Charai has... More

We spent 3 nights on our Moroccan tour in this lovely Riad. Plusses: - authentic Riad feel - good friendly service - affordable luxury Minuses: - location a bit off the main Medina area, half an hour´s walk to the main square - a bit rough area in the nights - kids hassling on tourists, so it would be advisable...

We visited Marrakesh in October 2014 and stayed 4 nights in Riad Charai. It was truly a wonderful experience. The staff was incredibly hospitable. Hammam and massages were brilliant. Location is not so central. It was a bit long walk (about 40 minutes) to all the attractions, so we ended up taking taxis everywhere. At night Taxis would drop you... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in January. We were met at the airport and taken to the Riad. Majid welcomed us and was a wonderful host throughout our stay. He organised anything we wanted without being pushy. We went on the garden tour and had a day in the Ourika valley. The breakfast is adequate but I would have liked... More

Beautiful Riad with exceptionally friendly staff. We had a really nice few days at this riad, everyone was very friendly and the food was quite good. Our only slight issue was the distance into town, since we got quite a lot of hassle walking home late we ended up staying in a lot and if we had been more central... More

We stayed in Riad Charai for 3 nights on the first leg of our tour around Morocco. I would recommend paying the extra euros for the Riad to arrange for a driver to pick you up from the airport as we would still be wandering around the medina now looking for it! We were with others who had flown from... More

Lovely ambiance in the whole building and everything looks very beautiful. We had a very large room with a large bed and nice bathroom. Very Nice staff and breakfast was also good. I only think they should offer 1 more spread, because you normally only get sweet spreads, something else would be Nice. Thank you.

We stayed as a couple, and chose the hotel for the wonderful suite size and price. The Riad itself is beautiful, room was lovely and large and it a fabulous place to come back to every day after the hustle and bustle of Marrakesch. Couple of things to watch out for. We had asked Rita if she could recommend a... More
