HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 20, 2016

I went for my birthday weekend in December. The Riad is impeccable. We got upgraded to a suite on the first floor which was really nice. All the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We booked the airport transfer through them as most of the reviews said it is impossible to find. Actually, with google map is not that difficult....

The Riad is a great calm place in the middle of the loud and busy medina. The staff is always great and helpful, the rooms and the surrounding match perfect to the atmosphere of the medina. The only drawback is that we felt that the dinner and the transfer service (the just call and pay a small taxi) offered is...

The Riad Karmela is a beautiful riad located in the hectic old part of Marrakech, in the centre of the Medina, close to the souks. Each time, entering Riad Karmela felt like arriving in a quite, lovely safe haven. The Riad forms a big contrast to the crowded souks and small streets you'll pass during your stay in the old...

My only complaint is that we didn't have more time in Marrakech and more time to relax at this riad - it's truly so wonderful and a little piece of heaven nestled into the craziness. The main area of the riad is so tranquil - there is a fountain and there are turtles that just roam around! And the terrace...

Excellent location, place and people. We don't normally eat or sit around in hotels but this was too nice a place not to do so - and the Marrakech experience starts as soon as you step out from the calm and tranquility of the Riad. We took the airport pick-up option and advanced-booked dinner the first night and would strongly...

Brought my partner here for her 50th birthday and could not have been more pleased with my choice. As we booked direct with the riad our transfer by taxi was included in the price of the accommodation and they delivered us straight to the door. If you're making your own way from the airport it would be tricky to find...

We booked the room in the Riad Petite Karmela but got upgraded to Riad Karmela! It is a real treat :) The design is exceptional and the locations is also great!

This location was great for walking to all the sights. The orientation at check-in was extremely helpful as we have never been to Morocco. We enjoyed mint tea and sweets upon check-in as well as in the evenings as we watched the sunset from the rooftop lounge. It was key to be arrange a pickup from the airport and a...
