Riad Charme d'Orient
Ranked #11 of 1,160 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2014

My friend and I stayed at the Riad for 2 nights in April and it was just perfect. Laurence was easy to communicate with before we traveled to Morocco and arranged our transport from the train station to the Riad, which waited outside of to walk us in.
Everything about the Riad is well-planned, tasteful, and functional. The room we stayed in had a blue theme and was comfortable and luxurious. The AC worked well. And the breakfast was fantastic each morning on the terrace.
Laurence even recommended, made a reservation, and organized transport to a nice dinner for the two of us.
Couldn't have asked for better hosts in Marrakech. Thanks so much.

Riad Charme d`Orient is a beautiful guesthouse, that feels more like a home than a touristic hotel. Laurence does a fantastic job in welcoming every guest and doing everything to make you feel at home. She will help you with everything you need. In the dusty streets of Marrakech Riad Charme d`Orient is an hidden oasis, where you can relax after a day in the medina.

We found this little gem of a Riad off of Trip Advisor and was not disappointed AT ALL. The owner, Alain, was a wonderful hostess. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed breakfasts on the terrace each morning. And both breakfast were different, which was a nice change from the routine Moroccan breakfasts; different fruit, pastries and juices. There is also a menu, but we didn't order anything from it. What really stood out for us was how wonderfully designed this Riad is. It's maybe 4 years old and the workmanship and attention to detail were quite impressive and I live and work in Morocco, so I make this statement w/ some experience. Alain's help is top-notch as well; helpful and sincere and can speak english. Stay here - you won't be disappointed!!

The owners have taken great effort with the renovation, decor and subsequent hosting skills to make this a memorable stay.
Breakfast was lovely, but we didn't have a dinner at the riad, preferring to take recommendations on going out.
The hammam recommended by Laurence was great and conveniently situated close by, well worth visiting.
A great base to explore the assault on the senses that is Marrakesh!!!

We stayed at Riad Charme D'Orient for 2 nights at the end of March. We chose it based on price, location, and trip advisor reviews. Laurence helped us to coordinate our stay and was very responsive over email. While at the riad, Said was also very helpful and doubled as our waiter at dinner as well as helping us with anything we needed. The riad is located in the medina and very convenient to anywhere you would want to go. We arrived from the airport in the early evening, and ate dinner at the riad the first evening. We had a delicious chicken tajine (despite being the first tajine of our trip, it was probably the best). Just make sure you email them before your arrival if you plan on eating dinner the first night. The Moroccan breakfasts on the roof deck were fantastic.

We stayed in the room “Aya”. It was above the ground floor so a bit quieter, though you can still hear people talking in other rooms and the courtyard (which is standard with almost all riads it seems). The room was very nice and comfortable. The shower pressure was low but manageable.

The following day, they coordinated a local private guide for us to take us through the city for a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend hiring a guide to take you through the city, especially early in your trip or if you are only there for a short stay (it can be a bit overwhelming/intimidating, and having a local with you protects you from being hassled).

Overall a great stay and highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at the Charme d'Orient for 4 nights at the end of March as a wedding anniversary break. We arranged through the Riad for a taxi to meet us at the airport and take us directly into town. We would definitely recommend this as it avoids the hassle of trying to negotiate on arrival and guarantees someone who knows exactly where they are going, not always guaranteed in Marrakech! It also means that as the final stages of the journey to the Riad can only be made on foot, someone will come from the Riad to be on hand to meet the taxi and guide you through the alleyways of the Medina.
Once through the front door you are transported to another world. Laurence and Alain have created a fantastic Riad that is spotlessly clean; calmness pervades throughout. The staff are always on hand to help - even providing mint tea without asking! Entertainment is provided by Coco the Parrot, ever eager to join in whatever conversations are taking place. Fortunately he does know how to sleep at night.
There are some really nice touches - rose petals on the bathroom floor, different ways of folding towels every day - that make the service feel very personal. We had an e-mail when we got home, asking about our journey home - not something we have experienced before.
We would highly recommend this Riad - and would definitely consider returning.
