Can't recommend enough. Wonderful location, extremely helpful and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us and the final bill was extremely reasonable considering we added lots of drinks and taxis to it. The rooms can differ in size so it's worth checking which room you've been booked in, particularly if you're sharing with a friend. I will definitely be... More

Just got back from my 3rd stay at Riad Karmela and I must admit I was a tad apprehensive that it wouldn’t be as wonderful as my previous two experiences. I needn’t have worried though, it was just as fantastic. I travelled with 3 friends none of whom had been to Marrakesh before. We had to wait a little while... More

I visited the Riad Karmela with three friends last week, one of which had visited twice before. It was everything and more that my friend had said. Lots of lovely quiet places to sit, the roof terrace is beautiful and the staff cannot do enough for you. From organising restaurant bookings, taxis and someone to take us on foot to... More

As a group of females who have just returned from a 3 night break, we cannot recommend this beautiful Riad enough. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door, with mint tea offered alongside local tips and knowledge. We stayed in an apartment which was nicely decorated in the traditional style, inc a hair... More

The Riad Karmela is an oasis in the centre of Marrakech, a welcome retreat in a bustling city. They will arrange for you to be met at the airport and driven into Marrakech, be aware that as you get within the walled elements the roads are cobbled and narrow so you won’t get a door to door service and will...

A very beautiful riad in a great location in the medina. Interiors are sumptuous and very tasteful. Staff were excellent. Breakfast was very good, especially the coffee! Menu for snacks and evening meals was limited (most resturants here have a fairly limited menu) buhe labarint the food was very good. If you haven't been to Marrakech before, listen to the... More

Beautiful riad renovated to a great standard. Inside its huge with 3 big lovely courtyards. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Me and my mate got an upgrade to a better room as we'd booked to stay in the petit karmela which didn't look so good. Rooftop is a world away from the busy street just outside which can't be... More

Decided on Riad Karmela mainly because of the reviews--also price was great,as was the location--after we booked we received a really informative e-mail from them and took them up on most of their suggestions such as airport transfer--as it turns out I would consider that essential unless you have been to Marrakech many times--well the ride was about an hour...

We arrived round 8pm and sat in the courtyard this was a lovely area beautifully decorated and had dinner which was a very nice three course meal, very tasty and lots of it. We we're upgraded to a suite which was again a very beautifully decorated room... More

This was my surprise 40th birthday present and I couldn't be happier. First of all the riad was beautiful , considering the location it was very quiet and a lovely escape from the chaotic streets outside. The riad staff collected us from the airport they looked after us for our entire trip and the return to the airport. We arrived... More
