Warmly welcomed on our arrival, everyone at Dar Charkia could not have been more helpful during our magical stay in Marrakech. This incredably romantic hotel was in heart of the Medina, easy to find yet an oasis of peace. I was so taken with its staff and ambience it was tempting never to venture out! Unusually for a hotel the owners tooks great care to explain to newcomers not only the interesting sites and acitvities but also some key tips on dos and don'ts. You will be in safe hands and Dar Chakia and have a lot of fun too!

The Dar Charkia Riad really is an oasis of calm within a city that is bright and effervescent. Lisa and her staff were very welcoming and provided everything we needed. Lisa put a lot of effort into helping our party to plan a fantastic itinerary- tailor made for us. The bedrooms were beautiful and each had a character of its own. I loved the small touches such as tealights around the riad, candles in the tree, petals and flowers. The pool was a welcome relief after the heat of the Morrocan day!
I particularly enjoyed spending time on the roof- breakfast in the tented area, sun bathing and chilling out in the evenings. A wonderful location for a Morrocan break.

First impressions.....it took our breath away! A hidden treasure. Tastefully decorated to a very high stanndard. Above and beyond all expectations! Lovely staff, great service, and the owner Lisa couldn't have done enough for us. Would recommend Dar Charkia to EVERYONE! So central and two minutes walk from the top end of the souks.

Dar charkia was absolutely stunning,and extremely welcoming. Each room had its own personality and was furnished with such detail and the most beautiful furniture. The riad was perfect, the staff were lovely and the food was great. I would definately recommend Dar Charkia to anyone, family and friends. My stay was superb, and i hope to revisit soon.

Lisa and Michael not only own the most immaculate riad, but they organised the most amazing few days for me and my friends, for my birthday. Lisa's personal shopping tour is a once in a lifetime experience. Her knowledge of the souks and the friendliness that we were received with whilst shopping was truly delightful.
The staff are all so helpful and friendly, which makes all the difference when you don't speak the language and need help! Breakfast was amazing and the fact that it is served anytime makes all the difference in the world after a late night out.
This has been my third stay and Dar Charkia and it gets even more beautiful every time, I really had the best stay/party ever! Can't wait to return next year!

After each and every one of your senses are thrown into confusion as you arrive in the city from the airport, you are dropped off at the end of a small road and walked down tiny alleyways to a large wooden door. Stepping over the threshold it was like walking into a tiny piece of heaven - utterly breathtaking. The decor, staff and the location are perfect. Lisa was the most wonderful host and her all of her staff couldn't have been more attentive. The riad is beautifully decorated and each and every room was divine. I will never forget sitting on the roof terrace listening to the buzz of the medina as the sun went down. Lisa couldn't have been more helpful in settling us into Marrakech-the advice and organisation that went into making our stay the best it could have been was outstanding. We cannot wait to return to Marrakech and cannot recommend this Riad highly enough. Go see this litle piece of heaven for yourself.....you will be overwhelmed I promise you!
