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

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 days! We were really happy to have booked with them in advance the transfer from the train station since yes, it is really hard to find! We had an amazing welcoming from the staff and had a really nice room! Clean and spacious! After spending time in the Medina, we were quite... 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.

Amazing place, doesn't looks what you are going to find when you are looking for, but once you go into, pease, attention, and relax is what you get. Rooms comfortable, personal very pleasant with what you need or want. We will go again next time stay in Marrakech sure.

Lovely Riad and would return without questions. From the arranged pick up at the airport to our return the Riad, it's management and staff were amazing. The building is beautiful and the roof top terrace with it numerous seating options and areas for lounging in the sin or in the shade were perfect after a day exploring the city. The... More

I booked this holiday with a friend as a last minute spontaneous getaway. Risky, but after viewing photos of the riad, I was sold. It didn't disappoint. 100% recommend booking a transfer with the hotel - it really is impossible to find otherwise. Don't be put off by the chaotic medina outside - somehow the riad is in its own...

Myself and my cousin stayed here at the beginning of July. After reading other reviews on the Raid we chose here as it was in the medina and all other reviews were excellent. I couldn't agree more. It is a very relaxing riad once you are inside after all the hustle in the Medina. As we were two ladies on... More

Highly recommend the Riad Karmela as a beautiful, authentic Moroccan home. It is perfectly located near the souk and main square, is comfortable, clean, and beautifully appointed. The staff is excellent.

Beautiful Riad very close to everything in the Medina. Staff are excellent, very helpful and friendly. Moved us immediately to a bigger suite when they realised our air conditioning wasn't working. Very peaceful, when we spent time relaxing on the roof-top there was no-one else around, we had full use of the outdoor jacuzzi to ourselves at all times. Breakfast... More

The personnel is very kind and helps in whatever you need and more, the service and the prices couldn't be better. The food is delicious and the rooms are beautiful and cozy, big and with everything you need. All the staff is kind and nice, altogether it's absolutely recommended. They pay attention to detail and that's something one doesn't expect.... More
