We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful Riad in the center of Marrakesh and Michel helped us plan our trip to the desert. His sight and hotel recommendations were perfect and we enjoyed a lot. Many thanks!!!

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights in Riad Al Karama and it was simply wonderful. The host was incredibly helpful and generous, the place was beautifully decorated and very well situated. We started off in the Safran room for one night and we were then upgraded to the Paprika suite which is just gorgeous. Both rooms were beautiful, but the Paprika suite is grandiose! Really comfortable, great service, great terrasse on the roof (with a cute turtle roaming around up there), great breakfast... All in all we really enjoyed this place and would highly recommend it!

Merci beaucoup pour l'accueil chaleureux ! Nous avons suivi le guide du Routard et ce fut un excellent séjour ! Bravo !

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice, but I highly recommend the Paprika suite. It's gorgeous!

Back in Marrakech for a 4 night break. Al Karama still scores top marks for its welcome - Eric met me from the airport with a wonderfully sunny smile and open arms. Top marks for cleanliness - Ali & Fatima are meticulous with room cleaning. Top marks for service - Aziz was there each evening to attend to anything we needed. Top marks for comfort - plenty of different areas to sit and chill, snooze or read. You could not ask for a better place with fantastic people to relax and unwind for a few days. Michel, Eric and their team continue to provide a first class service at reasonable rates. Do not hesitate to book this riad if looking for a place to stay in Marrakech.

We stayed in Riad Al Karama with my sister for three days - and we enjoyed every moment of it! We felt really safe and welcome, even while sleeping with open doors because of the heat, and leaving the door open, so the staff can clean our room while we were away - which they did every day, and properly. The breakfast on the roof (and talking to the other guests) was a very nice experience, and of course wondering in the medina (just 5 minutes walk from the riad), too. Marrakech is my most favorite city, and I hope I can return someday - and of course, to Riad Al Karama also!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a small, but nice room for decent price, choose the Coriander room.

We planned to stay only one night in this beautiful riad but after trying out a few others we came back and finished our vacation here. Wonderful atmosphere, spotlessly clean, very central and run by Michel and his welcoming and friendly staff. The rooms are simple but beautiful and the service leaves nothing to wish for. Breakfast is nice and generous. Definitely the place we will stay at next time we visit Marrakech.

Room Tip: The rooms in the bottom floor has no AC but is naturally cooled anyway. Second floor rooms have AC...

We had very little time lift of our 2-weeks stay in Marocco as we booked for 3 nights in Riad Al Karama, but we still decided to stay longer as we truly loved the place. Hard to find first, but no problem afterwards. 5 min from the main square Djemaa el Fnaa, in the medina - near all the shops, main sight of Marrakesh. Meticulously clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and just can´t describe the breakfast on the rooftop - really enjoyed our stay! Would recommend to stay if you want unexeptional service for reasonable prices.

This was our fourth visit to Marrakech and the first time we have stayed in a riad to which we would really like to return.It is beautifully decorated,clean and comfortable,very central in the Medina, but quiet and peaceful.The very efficient airport transfer and the delicious meal on our first evening took all the hassle out of our arrival and was a huge plus,as well as being extremely good value. The staff were delightful,always helpful,and the breakfasts were very good. The roof terrace is a lovely relaxing place to sit and prepare yourself for the next exciting foray into the chaos of Marrakech. Thank you,Michel,for a lovely stay,and we hope you found the whisky.
