We had a lovely 2 night stay at the Riad. Pros - breakfast on the rooftop, views of the city, nice rooms with good attention to detail, great rooftop sunloungers. Cons - you book a Riad knowing the busy streets and windy alleyways but we found the 15-20 minute walk to the Riad at night quite overwhelming at what feels a far corner of the medina. Once back it’s beautiful and quiet but don’t underestimate the stress to get there! As a result we checked out after 2 nights and moved outwith the city walls,just too intimidating. Still loved the Riad though just perhaps underestimated the old town!
Everything was perfect, Said, Fouzia and Fatiha were very friendly and very helpful. Saida made us two excellent meals. I can only recommend to have lunch and/or dinner in this riad. Don't miss the excellent breakfast on the terrace. In the morning it is not too hot and it is one of the best view in the medina. After a sunny afternoon we took advantage of the pool, it is small but deep and refreshing, the we went to the big jacuzzi. Next year, we will come back for sure. They have just installed the optic fiber, the wifi was top. Thank you
We had a wonderful stay at riad carlian everythings was lovely the staff is amaising and kinds ,the riad is very clean and peaceful ,the food is delicious -and a varied and rich breakfast . it also close to the big square .i wish to come back as soon as possible
Despite the City I didnt like so much, the Riad Carllian is a wonderful place to stay, The room was a bit small but very clean and so beautiful. The breakfast is superbe and the staff is kind and so present. I recommend it also for is position, very close to the Jaama El Fna and in the center of the Medina. The Terrace is very nice and when the sky is clear you can see the Atlas.
I was unprepared for what it would be like staying in a riad in Marrakech, so that may have coloured my experience. However, the clever photography did make me think this place was going to be much bigger than it was. Our arrival didn't go to plan as we were robbed on the street approaching the riad - an apparently common occurrence to be wary of - and neither the guide directing us through the medina to the riad (this assistance is pretty common and sometimes hard to say no to!) nor the riad staff offered any assistance or reassurance. The process of checking in seemed to take a long time but this may be due to our late arrival and we were eventually shown to our room by a very friendly and attentive member of staff. The room was much smaller than anticipated but comfortable. The bathroom was a nice size but with only a shower when I had expected the a full size bath as well (based on the room type I'd chosen), so it is worth checking this when you book if that's important. Breakfast was lovely and definitely filling, and made all the difference after a difficult first night in Marrakech! I would not return to this riad but if you are looking for somewhere extremely well located, don't care for a particularly large room and want to use a hot tub, it could very well be the place for you. …
