“Excellent riad in downtown Medina”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I spent few days at riad Al Karama few years ago and I decided to come back for my recent holiday. I went there with my friend and we were given the Safran double room. The room is quite big (4 meters x 6 plus bathroom) and is finely decorated. There is air conditioning and heating for the winter. The bathroom is very nice and has a shower plus two sinks.
Huge breakfast is included in the rate and is served on the roof top terrace.
Staff is very welcoming, nice and helpful, especially Mr. Michel and Mr. Aziz.
We took the chance to get airport transportation and a full day tour, very well organized.
Should I come back a third time to Marrakech I would definitely choose riad Al Karama once again!

Lovely and relaxing place, very friendly staff, highly recommend this place, although quite difficult to find for the first time, especially if first time in Marrakech. Love the roof top!
Breakfast may seem poor but it is traditional one.

I stay here for 2 nights. When I arrived this riad, it gave me a very nice viewing and feeling about morocoo traditional decoration. And the staff gave me a very warmest welcome and fatastic service. This riad is very comfortable, tidy and welcome. The staffs are very nice and kind. The location of this riad is very good, near the centre, only take 5mins to quare by walk. It is gorgeous experience stay in this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful Riad in the center of Marrakesh and Michel helped us plan our trip to the desert. His sight and hotel recommendations were perfect and we enjoyed a lot. Many thanks!!!

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights in Riad Al Karama and it was simply wonderful. The host was incredibly helpful and generous, the place was beautifully decorated and very well situated. We started off in the Safran room for one night and we were then upgraded to the Paprika suite which is just gorgeous. Both rooms were beautiful, but the Paprika suite is grandiose! Really comfortable, great service, great terrasse on the roof (with a cute turtle roaming around up there), great breakfast... All in all we really enjoyed this place and would highly recommend it!

Merci beaucoup pour l'accueil chaleureux ! Nous avons suivi le guide du Routard et ce fut un excellent séjour ! Bravo !

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice, but I highly recommend the Paprika suite. It's gorgeous!

Back in Marrakech for a 4 night break. Al Karama still scores top marks for its welcome - Eric met me from the airport with a wonderfully sunny smile and open arms. Top marks for cleanliness - Ali & Fatima are meticulous with room cleaning. Top marks for service - Aziz was there each evening to attend to anything we needed. Top marks for comfort - plenty of different areas to sit and chill, snooze or read. You could not ask for a better place with fantastic people to relax and unwind for a few days. Michel, Eric and their team continue to provide a first class service at reasonable rates. Do not hesitate to book this riad if looking for a place to stay in Marrakech.

We stayed in Riad Al Karama with my sister for three days - and we enjoyed every moment of it! We felt really safe and welcome, even while sleeping with open doors because of the heat, and leaving the door open, so the staff can clean our room while we were away - which they did every day, and properly. The breakfast on the roof (and talking to the other guests) was a very nice experience, and of course wondering in the medina (just 5 minutes walk from the riad), too. Marrakech is my most favorite city, and I hope I can return someday - and of course, to Riad Al Karama also!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a small, but nice room for decent price, choose the Coriander room.
