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

This beautiful Riad, right in the medina, is an Oasis. You are right in the centre of the old town (north of it), but inside it almost felt like you were somewhere in the nowhere. Quiet - no noises, with just birds singing from the trees of the riad. And if you went outside, you did not need to make... More

What a gorgeous, lovingly run, place to spend a few days. The staff could not do enough to make us feel comfortable and cared for. The breakfasts were just wonderful, home made yogurt which was divine, home made flat breads, crepes, omelettes, fruit salads and freshly squeezed orange juice. Very well done, I would recommend this to anyone.

This is a beautiful Riad - relaxing, clean and charming. The staff were adorable. A perfect luxurious escape from the rest of the hectic souks of Marrakesh. It looks just like the photos. Relaxing music and soothing amber and jasmine aromas will welcome you back in at any time of the day. Loved the two big divans, the big lounge... More
