We stayed 3 nights at the Riad Karim and would highly recommend it for a short break. Located in the Kasbah, admittedly it is impossible to find without help from the locals (who expected a generous tip!) but once found, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and had no trouble finding our way to and from the Riad after that. Riad Karim is situated at the end of narrow streets in the Kasbah, filled with people getting on with their daily lives and there is a bustling atmosphere which is all part of the Marrakech experience. Inside the Riad, all was very clean, calm and peaceful. Sambra looked after us very well - always with a friendly smile. The manager is also very helpful and will arrange trips etc if you wish. As the Riad only has 4 rooms, it was a bit like staying with friends. The manager does recommend phoning him on arrival at the airport and he will arrange to meet you from your taxi (as taxis cannot enter the very narrow streets and have to drop you nearby). We tried to find the Riad by following our street map, but many of the streets are not named. The Riad is very cosy, clean and furnished in a traditional way. If there were any problems at all, the manager is on site and dealt with a couple of minor things immediately, so just ask! And there is hot water! We were able to keep our room right up until afternoon departure at no extra charge.
