We got married at Riad Charai in September. It was perfection! We took over the riad for 3 nights. The staff, service, food, experience was amazing. We will be back. Robin and Meriem are so helpful and speak great English. Yousef is wonderful! I think the location is a good spot for exploring Marrakech. The main taxi rank is a... More

This riad has only 8 rooms, but is really big! It has so many corners, rooms and terraces, that the 8 couples will always find a place to sit alone if they want. Inside it was quiet and peacefull, nice decorations. Location is a downside. It's about 15-20min walk to tha main sqare, but trust me - even if you... More

We have just returned from Riad Charai. When the taxi from the airport stopped in the street for us to walk to the Riad we thought he must have made a mistake. We did not expect what we saw. The street is very run down, smelly, dirty and intimidating. However, there is a huge contrast once in the Riad. It... More

I booked Riad Charai from the views expressed on Trip Advisor, and it exceeded every expectation! A little about my partner and I (I find this helps)... We are in our late 20's, We love adventure and getting to grips with the country/city, culture and locals, but want to do it in style and expect quality/ cleanliness. I fell in... More

Beautiful place in the medina of Marrakech, an oasis of rest in the busy city, chill out. We were very lucky to be there all alone, nice contact with the crew, good service, good food, good vibe. We will return for sure. J&G.

We stayed for 6 nights, including a couple of nights with friends for their wedding. Right in the heart of the northern medina, you experience all the local sights, sounds and smells and may need a bit of help from the riad staff to find your way through the alleyways at first. Entering the riad takes your breath away. It... More

We stayed there for our honeymoon. Everything was wonderful - room, food, service, atmosphere, location. The riad is tucked away in the northern part of the medina, well away from the tourist crowds, but we felt that that added to the charm.

We stayed in suite Khamssa at this riad recently and we absolutely loved it. The decor is very simple, with dark wooden furniture, Moroccan rugs and plain, white-washed walls. In the suite there's a lobby with storage and a safe; a double bedroom with a seating area and fireplace, and a second twin bedroom leading off it. The bathroom is... More
