“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

After walking through some alleyways we arrived at our Riad. Inside it was a hidden gem! The rooms all gorgeously decorated and clean. The staff was extremely helpful and assisted us (6 ladies) in where and where not to go, gave us restaurant ideas and even some shopping tips.
I would highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed for 3 nights at Riad Charme d'Orient while in Marrakech. Laurence, the owner, arranged a petit taxis for us and met us at the drop-off to walk with us to the riad. From the moment we stepped inside, we were awed by the beauty in front of our eyes. The riad was spotless, decorated with exquisite taste and exuded a sense of serenity. During our stay we had more time to discover other details that made this riad so gorgeous! It was very well situated, only a 7 minute easy walk to Jemaa el Fna. Service was very nice. Laurence gave us valuable tips to explore Marrakech.
Our stay at Riad Charme d'Orient was truly beyond expectations!!!

Stayed at this fab riad for four nights with my partner. They were very helpful in everything we needed, the first night they had our dinner ready as we arrived from the airport very late at night.
The room was tasteful decorated as the hole place, every detail makes your stay a real pleasure.
The location is perfect, close to everything and easy to reach by car.

I would definitely recomend this riad to everyone who what to stay right at la medina, the real marrakech experience.

I would thoroughly recommend this Riad
- Alain and Laurence ensure that very high standards of service are adhered to
- The location is excellent, about 8 mins from Djemaa El-Fna but far enough away to feel that you have your own sanctuary
- Inside the decor is of a high standard as is the bedroom we stayed in
- Alain and Laurence provide excellent advice of how to get the best out of your stay
- The roof top terrace was lovely for breakfasts and the occasional evening meal

In conclusion we very much enjoyed our 5 nights there.

Room Tip: If you go when it is hot, make sure you choose a Riad with air-conditioning!

With so many riads on offer in Marrakech it is difficult to know which one to choose. We were lucky we stayed at the Charme D'Orient.

Location - short walk to the main square (Jemaa el-Fna) and the start of the Souks + close to "real Marrakech" away from tourists (opposite direction to main square).

The host - Lawrence was was very attentive and her attention to detail from the way she has refurbished the riad to the quality bedding and the high standard of cleanliness she provides did not go unnoticed. Ask her for recommendations for out of the way restaurants. She can also organise day trips and book hammams but she does not push this fact.

Pool - many people see a pool in the photos and think they can use it for bathing. The pool is in the courtyard on the ground floor and is more decorational than functional.

Taxi service - we chose to use a taxi driver she recommended. It probably cost us more but he waited for us during baggage delays and got us to the riad within minutes of leaving the airport. Said, the caretaker/manager, would meet all guests at the taxi drop off and walk us through the narrow streets till we got our bearings. Wonderful service!

Would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: The top room on the roof terrace is smaller and wifi reception was touch and go but on the plus side...

We stayed here for 5 nights in September 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are beautifully decorated with good air conditioning enabling us to escape the heat of the souks. The riad is well situated in the old town only a short walk to the main square.

The breakfast was lovely based on a standard continental with a Moroccan twist. On one evening we at the Riad. We ordered a Tajir which was amazing !!!!! And highly`recommend.

The staff are always present to answer questions and give advice about what to see and do around the city. Would highly recommend asking the riad to book you a cab for trips to and from the airport to save you a lot of time and hassle.

stayed here with friends in April. Lovely Riad - great staff, wonderful service, beautiful interiors etc. Highly recommend and only 5 mins walk from the Kozey Bar which is my favourite place! We had lunch here as well which does need to be booked in advance but was wonderful.
