“A beautiful Riad that made me unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We have just stayed in the Dar Charkia, what a fabulous place. You can take breakfast at whatever time suits you so no problems with a lay in.
We booked dinner on arrival and it was delicious.
Highly recommended.

We booked Dar Charkia based on the excellent reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The riad is somewhere between a hotel and an incredibly stylish home. The rooms and courtyard areas are beautifully furnished, with lots of artistic flair (lots of muted lilac/purple/silver tones-nothing is garish or overdone). We met Michael on our first day in Marrakech. He is one of the most charming men we have met. He gave us a detailed map and overview of the sights to see and things to do (as well as tips about the souks, taxis etc). The team were helpful, polite and always smiling throughout our stay. I would say, if you are on a budget, check the approximate prices of the recommended restaurants before booking, to plan how much you want to spend on lunch/supper and most importantly the souks!

We spend 2 days in the atlas mountains, which was a cool peaceful retreat before the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Dar Charkia is indeed the peaceful retreat in this dynamic city! Thanks for the memories!

I can't help but want to repeat everything already said about this place. The Riad itself is beautiful and peaceful. The rooms are decorated wonderfully and best of all everyone is so welcoming. Everyone working there seems to really, sincerely want you to get the most and best out of your stay, and are so helpful and welcoming every step of the way. We had the chance to have breakfast every morning here and I regret we didn't get to reserve a spot for lunch or dinner at least once, the food looked amazing. Thanks to Lisa, Michael and the rest of the staff we really felt like we were able to get the most out of the city. Would absolutely stay again, it's without a doubt one of the best places I've had the pleasure of staying at.

Such a beautiful riad with fantastic staff and the loveliest of owners. Lisa and Michael the owners, were so helpful and recommended places for coffee, lunch dinner whether you wanted cheap, romantic, French, Italian. You name it, they know where to go. The location is fantastic, 2 minutes from everything! Up on the terrace we had great views, a lovely lychee and lemonade pitcher whilst listening to the call to prayer. Just fantastic!! Cant wait go again. We'll be back Dar Charkia!!

What an amazing Riad! It really is the best place to stay in Marrakech. Lisa and Michael were extremely helpful and their staff was incredible. The Riad looked like it could of been pulled out of Elle Decor magazine. It was a great place to stay for our last night in Morocco. Don't look any further - this is the place to stay!

What a wonderful Riad. Beautifully designed and incredibly relaxing. Spent a wonderful 6 days in this Riad and will most definitely return. Incredibly hospitable staff. Beautiful rooms and a fabulous roof terrace to sit with a glass of lychee lemonade in the blistering heat. Thank you all for a wonderful stay. You have a beautiful tranquil place away from the chaos of the souks! :)

Dar Charkia deserved every good comment by travelers! Lisa and Michael were extremely warm in welcoming us, and even though we arrived at 9am in the blistering heat, they quickly gave us a room and even had breakfast for us while we waited. I would like to point out that their night staff Rashid was brilliant in his service during our stay there. As we always returned late at night from our day trips around Marrakech (which Lisa also helped us put together), he was always there to welcome us back and even offered us some fruits when he knew we were hungry. I would definitely choose to stay at Dar Charkia again and visit beautiful Marrakech and its wonders!
