“Excellent riad with superb service in the old Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. It is a nice riad in a very good location in the old Medina. There is a taxistand closeby, and the tourist attractions, incl soukhs, and the square are a 5-10 minute walk. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. Siaid was attentive and spoke perfect english. The owners, Lisa & Michael, gave us great advice on what to see and where to buy souvenirs. We stayed in the largest room in the Riad. It was spacious and clean.

We were very happy to have stayed in such a wonderful place.

Having just got back to London from an amazing 5 day stay at dar Charkia. I have never been more excited to write a review on Trip Advisor! My fiancee and I are well traveled and have stayed at many types of accommodation and we can both say this is one of the best places we have ever stayed! Lisa and Michael are the most delightful hosts- so helpful and willing to make sure your stay in Marrakech is the enjoyable. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lisa who sat us down in the BEAUTIFUL courtyard area and gave us a very thorough insight into the the city. Lisa gave us several tips of good places and see, varying from great places to eat, visit and shop. The room we stayed in was immpecible- extremely clean and had a unique personal touch with the most amazing decor. Prior to traveling to Marrkech, Lisa was in touch on a regular basis assisting us to make the most of our stay- she helped us book restaurants, day trips and best of all the most amazing cooking school- Faim d'epeices! Any questions we had about Marrakech as well Lisa was very quick to respond. The staff at the Riad were also delightful. Sammy and Siaed were the most delightful and hospitable people and were always keen to hear how our day was and again give us advice on ensuring we enjoyed our time in Marrakech. What makes dar Charkia so amazing is the service and unique touches to the Riad and each of its room. The ezquisite decor has been clearly so thought after and represented Marrakech in style. I cannot recommend this Riad highly enough to anyone who would like to enjoy luxury accommodation so typical of Marrakech as well the most outstanding hospitality.

We stayed 4 nights at Dar Karchia and everything was fantastic - friendly service and helpful in every possible way, including tips on the best outings and restaurants. Our stay was perfect in every way, and we could not have asked for more. We would certainly return to this wonderful accommodation.

This is a great riad with a tasteful décor and a relaxed atmosphere. The real advantage is however the wonderful people that runs it. Michael and Lisa really knows how to make you feel at home and does there best to guide you – both at your stay and before your arrival – and their staff are all so nice and helpful.
We were a group of eight (age from 15 to 50) celebrating my 50th birthday and new years eve. I received a detailed mail from Lisa long before our stay with lots of addresses and tips of restaurants and things to do. Lisa booked restaurants for us, and they were all great. New years eve we had our own private arrangement in the riad with the nicest atmosphere. Dar Charkia makes great food so do remember to eat in at least one evening. Breakfast in the tent on the roof or in the courtyard is also super. Note that areas of the road are connected to the courtyard and that it can be a bit could in the evening in the winter.
Dar Charkia is located in the medina in walking distance to everything – also the main attractions of the new town.
We can’t wait to come back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Sahara suite. It is below with direct access to the courtyard and is very nice (do note...

This was our 3rd x-mas in Marrakech and Dar Charkia was just the right place to for us. We've stayed for a week and enjoyed it all the way. The welcoming hospitality and the smiling service is really recommendable!

My wife and I travelled to Dar Chakia for our anniversary in December and found a superb experience. Upon arrival, we were met by Saeed who gave us drinks and from there tha magic began! Michael was a great host, a skilled tour guide and made us feel at home. As opposed to staying in a hotel, the feeling was very personal, our Riad, (the Douiria room) was spacious, excellently furbished and very relaxing.

We will certainly be returning. A special thank you to Saeed, Sumaira and of course to the rest of the very friendly staff!

The Dar Charkia raid is absolutely beautiful. The rooms and service are first class. We enjoyed our 3 night stay, relaxing in the tranquil surroundings after the hustle and bustle of the Marrakech souks. Michael, Said and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The riad is in a good location allowing us to walk to all the main attractions during our stay. If you are looking for beautiful accommodation with great food and staff, in a great location, this is the place for you!
