Had a lovely time in a very homely and calm environment! The homemade breakfast (prepared by Radia) was great. It is close to the Souks and the square. (Had quite a hassle initially getting there in the 1st place - so get them to arrange for a taxi to collect you - I only found this out when we left and the taxi collected you right outside!)
Really a sanctuary in the bustling Medina. Elisabeth and Radia were great! really helpful with anything we needed.

I had never been to a Riad before, and was not disappointed. The place is calm, rooms are of an OK size and OK cleanliness, the breakfast is great (everything locally made, good quantity and perfect service). Location is great, close to everything in the medina, but getting to the Riad the first time is not easy. If you don't know Marrakesh, ask for the riad to book you a Taxi that will take you there, or run the risk of being lost for and needing to call for help :)

We really loved this riad! It is such a nice home in a bustly neighbourhood.
Rooms are nice and clean. Elisabeth is a very nice hostess and very helpful.
Only one small thing to consider: the riad is thin-walled.

This riad is wonderful! Very close to the main square, and souks...but a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the action. Elisabeth and Radia were wonderful hosts. Amazing breakfast (all homemade by Radia!) Beautiful courtyard & rooms...lovely sunny roof terrace. Staff was very helpful with anything we needed. Couldn't recommend this place enough. We won't stay anywhere else in Marrakech. Thank you!

We have just come back from little break in Marrakesh and wanted to share our experience. we stayed in Riad Noor Charana for 3 nights and OH MY GOD!! WHAT A PLACE! Rooms are clean and tidy, modern with an arabic feel, you can smell arabic incense through out the riad, it's has nice roof terrace, breakfast is served in a cosy room with chilling music and staffed by fantastic girl, Radia, who seem to do everything in this riad, including home made yoghurt! delicious! by the way....everything is home made, jam, juice, bread, cookies, everything! also she is very helpful, willing to go shops with you if you are not sure which bottle of argan oil you want to get for your hair!!

Place is run by French lady, Elisabeth, who is an absolute star!!! If you are not sure about something, you don't know what to do, where to go, what to buy, just stay in her place and she will be your lonely planet guide.

We would be very surprised if any one left here dissapointed

Beautiful modest little riad, Dinner is excellent and there is really no reason to eat anywhere else. Exceptionally quiet and peaceful. Not too easy to find . If arriving at night get a taxi transfer arranged by the riad or seek explicit instructions. (Turn into Derb El Kabir and take the second little alley on your left about 100 metres down the Derb. Roon Charana is the first door on your right)

The riad is located just 10 minutes from the main square of Jema El-Fna. Staff was service minded and attentive, and made us feel welcome at once. I would say that the best thing about this riad was that it is centrally located, but at the same time it is very quiet and peaceful. I had some of my best sleep in my life at that riad - beds were comfortable and not any noise or sound to be heard when going to bed. Quite amazing concidering its location smack in the midst of the Marrekech medina. Also, the breakfast is cooked and prepared each morning, so make sure you are hungry and have room for fresh out of the oven bread - truly amazing. If I ever go back to Marrakech, I will be staying at this riad!
