We stayed at Dar Charkia for 3 nights in May 2012 as park of an 8 night trip to Marrakech and without any doubt the highlight of the trip was this hotel. Every single member of staff was friendly, welcoming and very, very helpful from the moment we walked in to the hotel until the time we left. The owners, Michael & Lisa, spent time meeting all of the guests and they were able to offer great advice on places to shop, restaurants to sample & places to visit.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the bedrooms are fantastic.The roof terrace is great to sit on with a drink at any time of day. We stayed in the Douiria Suite which was an absolute treat.
One point to note is that the hotel is down a narrow lane. We were a little cautious on the first visit but the chap collecting us was very helpful and we soon realised that almost every street in Marrakech is a narrow lane so there was absolutely nothing to worry about.
During our visit I planned to find a romantic spot to propose to my girlfriend (now wife), however, as it turned out we were staying in the perfect place and I wasted 2 days scouring various locations prior to proposing in Dar Charkia. The setting was perfect and I highly recommend it!
Unfortunately, we made a mistake by not spending the full 8 days of our holiday in Dar Charkia but we can rectify that next time we visit.
This hotel is excellent and the staff are fantastic!!! We will definitely be back for a visit in the near future!!!
