Riad Dar Baraka & Karam was our base for a 5 day tip to Marrakech early in February. The Riad is within easy walking distance of most of the major attractions in the City including the best restaurants. The interior is authentically finished and makes for a fantastic contrast to the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets and alleyways. Our room which opened onto the inner courtyard on the ground floor was simply furnished but very comfortable with a stone bath/shower room. The traditional open inner courtyard was beautiful with a fountain in the centre and places to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. The roof terrace also provided a great place to just sit out and enjoy the Marrakech experience. The staff are friendly and always helpful even when limited by the language barrier. We thoroughly recommend this Riad as a base of operations whilst in Marrakech, don’t be put off by the walk to the taxi drop-off point to the front door, it’s all part of being in Marrakech!

This medium-sized riad comprises 5 bedrooms surrrounding a central courtyard with fountain. A split-level roof-terrace provides a magnificient view of the gardens of Dar El Bacha, the ancient palace of Glaouiet and the celebrated minaret of the Katoubi mosque. To complete your relaxation, a hammam and choice of massages are available. If this house is not enough to delight, then Dar Karam awaits to further seduce you with the charms of Moroccan hospitality. To provide more spacious accommodation the two houses may be booked as one. This riad, restored in respectful keeping with its surroundings, is a model of sobriety and elegance.
