The Riad Karmela is a fantastic hotel, full of character. We stayed as a group of young 6 girls and loved our time there (End of March 2013). We sorted transfers with the hotel before we left England, and we had Kamal pick us up. This is recommended as taxi's can't get to the hotel as it is located within the heart of the old town. The hotel is in a great location, 10 mins walk from the main square and markets (suks), hidden within the alley ways of Marrakech.

On our arrival, we were served peppermint tea with Moroccan sweets and our luggage was taken to our rooms for us. Then we were given fantastic information about what to do/not to do in Marrakech e.g. not let local boys guide you to places and how much discount to get for items at the markets. The hotel made suggestions for us on using a spa, going to a Water Park (A MUST!) and places to eat. We even had restaurant door man walk us to and fro late at night back to the Riad.

The hotel were very good at arranging our taxis to places and our pick ups as well. It made our holiday stress free. Any thing used by the hotel was paid at the end of our stay, we didn't need to pay upfront for using their own taxis.

Rooms were clean. Fresh towels were provided and beds made each day. Cleaners are friendly too! We had two rooms, which were opposite each other. Rooms had a hairdryer too. Between both rooms, we had a little court yard with sofas. This was lovely when we wanted to relax after a busy day out. Rooms have a safe and rooms are locked with a padlock. Room has air con, but we weren't able to get hot air, when it became chilly at night.

Breakfast was continental....fresh orange juice, toast, english tea, coffees, cornflakes, jams and hot food such as omelettes and pancakes served. It was lovely to see the two pet tortoises out for breakfast too.

The hotel has a lovely roof top terrace, with gorgeous sun loungers and sofas. It was lovely to chill out after a walk in the square or to soak up the heat. The hotel very kindly also gave us extra peppermint tea as we loved it so much - complimentary.

As a group of 6, we wanted to enjoy the nightlife in the new town, so the hotel organised for us to go with Kamal. He took us to the best clubs and shisha bars in Marrakech. Great choices of clubs!

At the Riad, we could also change our money at a good rate.

Great hotel, would return again in the future.

in march 2013 we´ve been the 5th time in riad karmela (7 days). and we´re again thinking of coming back as soon as possible - inshallah. we don´t know all of marrakech, but we guess, the karmela is one of the best places in this town to rest, to sleep, to talk, to chill and to eonjoy the absolute kindness of the staff and the charming furniture, ambience and atmosphere.
the team of patron joel is the best he could get, therefore is only few change. the girls and boys are all polite, helpful and the kindest in town. they always have time for a talk, for giving advise, and last not least for teaching a little bit of arab.
they don´t let you feel beeing a stranger in a strange country, they make you feel beeing at home in a fascinating culture and marvellous town and country.
we almost can´t await, saying merhaba to all again.

Riad Karmela is a real gem. The place is calm and tranquil in the midst of the craziness that is Marrakesh. You have to walk down a maze of allies to find the place which just adds to it's character. We stayed there in the beginning and again at the end of our trip and when we arrived for the second time it felt like we were coming home. Joel and Bouchra were very helpful in arranging transportation and sightseeing excursions, they even stored our luggage for a few days while we did a trip to Zagora. I would definitely recommend.

If you want a place to stay that is within the walls of the Old Town, I would strongly recommend the Riad Karmela. I generally stay in chained multinational hotels and I wish that the customer service offered by Joel and his staff was replicated by them.

We had a fabulous stay at Riad Karmela.
All the staff were very friendly and were great at reccommending activities etc for us to do which they also took the time to help us organise. This included a trip to the Atlas Mountains and evenings out.
Would highly reccomend.
