“excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Great riad 10 minutes off Jemaa El Fna, with helpful and charming team taking care of you, excellent balance between price and accomodation, possibility to book car at decent prices. A haven of rest and quiet in busy Marrakech, in a friendly athmosphere, away from the crowds.

Another short break at Riad al Karama proved to be as good, if not better, than before! Michel & Eric continue to run a well organised riad. Eric once again proved himself to be a really great chef, with an evening meal of tasty soup & a variety of chilled salads. Perfect for the hot August evenings. Aziz & Fatima provided excellent service throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We always feel very comfortable & at home at this riad & for sure will return on our next trip. Thank you Michel, Eric, Aziz & Fatima.

If you are looking for a spot close to the madness of Jamaa Lefna and at the same time quiet and picturesque, this is he place where to stay. A small umber of staff but a professional service avilable at every time of the day, it is very clean and the breakfast on the roof where you can overlook other houses is just fastiduous.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Riad al Karama and we were so impressed by this small but perfectly formed riad. The place is gorgeous, relaxed and homely - the perfect retreat when the heat and bustle gets a bit much. The staff were really charming and looked after us perfectly - breakfast really exceeded expectations and the evening meal we had ended up being one of the best of our stay. We stayed in the Cannelle room on the ground floor which was really pretty and had a huge shower. The location is SO GOOD - about a 5 minute stroll to the main square. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Riad Al Karama for 4 nights early February 2012. We truly enjoyed the time we spent there. The Riad has been completely renovated, is support clean and well maintained and the staff is really helpful and friendly, I completely disagree with the comment from the Australian lady, Michel and Eric the owners manage their property really well and keep an eye on everything to make sure that there guests are comfortable. They will provide advises and can book expeditions and visits at spas in the city. I highly recommend this Riad and would definitely go back. The Riad is conveniently located very close to all major attractions.

We could not have asked for more at Riad Karama - I would recommend this gorgeous riad to anyone and will defiinitely be going back (in fact, we returned for two nights after our travels before flying out). Michel, Eric, Aziz and Miriam looked after us beautifully and knew our needs even before we did! Mint tea and snacks appeared readily after tiring days in the busy souqs, Michel kindly recommended and made bookings for us at places that turned out to be fantastic choices on our family road trip. We had two wonderful meals in the riad where we felt both truly spoilt and at home - Eric is wonderful cook - and it was so cosy, comfortable and charming we felt like never going out again! Thank you to you all (and Josephine the tortoise) for a memorable and relaxing stay.
