My friend and I stayed in the Karmela for 4 days. It was probably one of the loveliest hotels we've ever stayed in. Totally surprising to arrive off the hectic streets, down a narrow and unassuming alleyway and walk into an amazing paradise. Beautifully restored by the owner, it is filled with everything you'd imagine a riad to be. Pretty courtyards, marble and tiled floors, bouganivillea on the roof terraces, little plunge pools, gorgeous painted timber doors...It is an oasis of peace and tranq... Read more

My friend and I stayed in Marrakech for a little over a week. Since we were doing a desert tour in the middle of the trip, we booked two riads. Riad Karmela was the second riad that we booked for couple nights right before we left Marrakech. To make a long story short, I had high expectations about the riad based on the reviews I read, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. The bathroom floor were sticky, and the standard room was very awkwardly configured. There was hardly any room to ... Read more

As soon as the taxi driver walked us to RIAD KARMELA, someone took our suitcase right away and serviced us the delicious mint tea with local delicious sweets! We got a spacious suite and better rate than online. We stayed 4 nights there. They serve wonderful breakfast on the rooftop terrace! People were so nice there! We booked 2 tours the night before and a driver came to pick up in the morning, so easy. We were told the price to pay for taxi from point A to B so we would not be cheated! It was... Read more

I can highly recommend a stay at Riad Karmela. My partner and I spent 6 nights total here and took full advantage of the roof decks, many lounge areas and meal services. The staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The breakfast service on the roof terrace was a wonderful way to wake up. The coffee was delicious and breakfast was always fresh. We had amazing food in Marrakech but dinners there were by far the best. Our favorite was the beef and artichoke heart tagine. It tasted l... Read more

Well what can I say ? Lots!!

The staff are very welcoming from arrival and anything you need they will do their best to help you with. Very polite, breakfast was exquisite and overall a wonderful experience feel like a home away from home. They even helped fix my suitcase as the zip was broken at no extra cost which they offered to do. I'm definitely going back on my next visit. Highly recommend Riad Karmela!

The personnel is very kind and helps in whatever you need and more, the service and the prices couldn't be better. The food is delicious and the rooms are beautiful and cozy, big and with everything you need. All the staff is kind and nice, altogether it's absolutely recommended.

Beautiful Riad very close to everything in the Medina. Staff are excellent, very helpful and friendly. Moved us immediately to a bigger suite when they realised our air conditioning wasn't working. Very peaceful, when we spent time relaxing on the roof-top there was no-one else around, we had full use of the outdoor jacuzzi to ourselves at all times. Breakfast was fine, we didn't have dinner hear, but they recommended restaurants for us when we asked them too which were excellent. For me, i... Read more

Myself and my cousin stayed here at the beginning of July. After reading other reviews on the Raid we chose here as it was in the medina and all other reviews were excellent. I couldn't agree more. It is a very relaxing riad once you are inside after all the hustle in the Medina. As we were two ladies on our own we did get hassled alot but when we needed to get a taxi the hotel guys walked with us to the taxi which was a very appreciated. The Riad has lots of little quiet places where you can si... Read more

I booked this holiday with a friend as a last minute spontaneous getaway. Risky, but after viewing photos of the riad, I was sold. It didn't disappoint. 100% recommend booking a transfer with the hotel - it really is impossible to find otherwise. Don't be put off by the chaotic medina outside - somehow the riad is in its own bubble of tranquility with the only noises coming from the stunning plunge pool waterfall and occasional call to prayer. We didn't eat at the restaurant but ordered snacks a... Read more

Lovely Riad and would return without questions. From the arranged pick up at the airport to our return the Riad, it's management and staff were amazing. The building is beautiful and the roof top terrace with it numerous seating options and areas for lounging in the sin or in the shade were perfect after a day exploring the city. The rooms, food and service were brilliant very friendly and attentive at all times.

Very good location, just 10 minutes away from Jemma el Fna. Boushra welcome us in the original Moroccan way, with Moroccan tea and a map with a very detailed guidance of how we could enjoy Marrakech better, alongside with all the "advices" you need to have from a local. Signs of the read exist in all your way to Jemma el Fna, which makes it difficult to get lost. Extremely helpful stuff, which makes your stay a true experience!

Traditional riad in the heart of Marrakesh. The place was very clean and the service excellent! Breakfast is very nice and I would also recommend the hammam and massage services which me and my 2 friends tried and found it very relaxing! The staff was very helpful and transportation or restaurant reservations were handled by the riad.

Rooms are massive and very clean, by far one of the best places I have ever stayed. It just felt so comfortable, warm, and cozy. Bonus the Turtles are pretty cute.

located in the middle of the medina, everything is within walking distance. the staff is really helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome. the rooms are nicely decorated, however there is no sound insulation so you can hear everything from outside and not much light comes in. the terasse is beautiful and I would also recommend the hammam and massage.

Riad Karmela is an economical choice and well located in the medina for access to all the sights. Being where it is in the medina does have its problems though, as taxis cannot drop you off at the riad, you have to walk the last 5 or 10 minutes, which is fine if they send someone to show you the way, you would never find it on your own. On leaving we had booked and pre paid our transfer to the airport, we checked the day before with the reception staff and were assured there would be someone ... Read more

Brilliant ! Really friendly staff, clean rooms, great food (don't eat there every night though, half the fun is exploring. Listen to the advice given on not following teenage boys.

The riad was much prettier than the pictures give it credit for and it was a perfect oasis away from the craziness of Marrakesh! A bit difficult to find a first but staff were great at giving you simple directions around and we were able to navigate it the surroundings quickly. Staff were too rate. Unbelievably helpful and friendly and have great advice for managing the souks etc. Definitely would recommend it for anyone visiting Marrakesh and I will definitely be back!

A beautiful, authentically restored riad in the heart of the Medina. We were made to feel really welcome and cared for, and were served mint tea and pastries upon arrival and throughout our stay. We booked a budget package but were given a free upgrade to the main riad. The breakfast and evening meals were divine.
