This Riad was so beautiful and relaxing. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly throughout. It was clean and affordable and worth every penny! The only negative would be the location. You have to walk down creepy side streets which are quite intimidating! Although the staff were amazing the service was quite slow but the beauty of the Riad made... More

This hidden paradise is tucked away in the small streets and we happened to arrive late at night so at first we were terrified! It feels like all the locals were staring at us BUT once we arrived to the Riad it was like we stepped into another area. The staff were extremely accommodating and made us feel like royalty...

This was a lovely place to stay in Marrakech. It is difficult to find when you first get there (in retrospect worth paying for the hotel-provided shuttle from the airport) and be prepared to get lost when coming back at night. However, this is because it's in the midst of the bustling medina where all the streets melt into one... More

Me and my friend Sandra spent a week in riad charai and had a holiday to remember forever. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and work non stop to provide exceptional service. We became friends with majid and mustafa instantly due to their professionalism, friendly vibe and willingness to always go out of their way to be accommodating.... More

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 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
