Arriving on our first night we were picked up by a taxi driver and met by a member of staff, Mustafa (lovely member of staff) who took us to the riad . We walked through these small streets then finally reached the riad. The big wooden doors had a smaller wooden door within it, which opened into serenity, calmness and... More

We've just returned from a 7 night stay at Riad Karmela and I couldn't recommend it more highly. I was with my 2 year old son and parents and I can't thank the staff enough for being so accommodating. They were not only friendly and welcoming but we're very kind in allowing me to get milk and prepare food for... More

This is a very authentic style Riad located right in the heart of the medina. Unless you are familiar with the area, highly recommend having the hotel pick you up at the airport, or having very detailed directions to give to your cab driver. We came in by cab from Agadir and our driver had no idea where the Riad... More

Raid Karmela is located in the back streets of a bustling part of the city. Our drive there took us into a completely different world of carts drawn my donkeys, street merchants and mopeds whistling past us in extraordinarily narrow cobbled streets. The noise, smell and heat left us wondering what to expect from Riad Karmela - we were not... More

A beautiful experience staying in this Riad - everything we had hoped for . Perfectly situated for sightseeing in the Medina and an oasis of calm and tranquility after the madness of the souks . The staff could not have been more helpful and as we had a late arrival ( after 8 pm ) we were happy to have... More

I arrived with my daughter (aged 27) for a weekend, not knowing quite what to expect. On arrival we were given mint tea ( a must in Marrakesh! ) a map, with easy directions to the souks and central square, with the Riad shown, which was most useful, as it is easy to get lost! Our room was fantastic and... More

We stayed at Riad Karmela for 4 nights at the beginning of November. From the moment we stepped inside we were made to feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble. We were upgraded to the best room which was strewn with rose petals as it was a special trip for us. The staff were beyond helpful, always went the... More

Vrooom, vrooom, and the you enter the riad and it's peace and serenity all of the sudden. Big and clean rooms. Ownership is stellar and will accommodate just about any any of your needs. Coffee and bread readily available. Walk right out the front door and it's vrooom, vrooom, once again and a quick 3-5 minute walk to the Medina... More

We were booked into the Riad el Nour but the Riad Karmela is owned by the same people and we were allocated a room at Karmela and upgraded to a suite on arrival. It was amazing. The stunning original ornate features are breath taking. Set right inside at the heart of the medina yet tranquil and calm, a truly hidden... More

This is a lovely, calm tranquil place to stay set within the mayhem that is the Medina. The service is exceptional and the staff extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The service all along was attentive but not in your face. But I have to make particular note and thank the Manager for sending a driver, without a moment's... More
