Perfect stay at Riad Karmela. Everything was great: Location, interior, staff. we want to mention the very friendly host of Mustafa, who always brought the drinks and snacks to the terrace. We will definitely come back to stay at this wonderful Riad.

located in the middle of the medina, everything is within walking distance. the staff is really helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome. the rooms are nicely decorated, however there is no sound insulation so you can hear everything from outside and not much light comes in. the terasse is beautiful and I would also recommend the hammam and massage.

Had a great time here. So close to everything and the dinner we had was amazing the continental breakfast needs some work but that just meant we ate out for breakfast.

Traditional riad in the heart of Marrakesh. The place was very clean and the service excellent! Breakfast is very nice and I would also recommend the hammam and massage services which me and my 2 friends tried and found it very relaxing! The staff was very helpful and transportation or restaurant reservations were handled by the riad.

Very good location, just 10 minutes away from Jemma el Fna. Boushra welcome us in the original Moroccan way, with Moroccan tea and a map with a very detailed guidance of how we could enjoy Marrakech better, alongside with all the "advices" you need to have from a local. Signs of the read exist in all your way to Jemma... More

The Riad Karmela is absolutely stunning! Based in the heart of the very busy Medina of Marrakech it is hidden away, a place of calm and relaxation. The owners are fabulous- very welcoming and helpful. I stayed with another female friend for 7 nights in a twin/ family room which was very spacious and carefully decorated to reflect traditional local... More

Don't be put off by the little side street entrance, this place is fantastic! The staff are wonderful and will always do whatever they can to help. The place is very clean in room and in communal areas. Comfy beds, spacious bedrooms and a lovely rooftop area with jacuzzi. Couldn't rate it highly enough.
