riad bien situé avec beaucoup de charme

Posted Apr 18, 2015
Pros: la decoration
Cons: la communication pour plus de discrétion de la part des clients
Location: en plein coeur de la médina , très bien situé.Ne pas hésiter à faire réserver le taxi de l'hotel pour les transferts à l'aeroport (plus economique)
riad parfait au niveau de l'accueil et de la déco, cependant les nuits n'étaient pas excellentes (matelas très dur) et beaucoup de bruit dans les patios suite aux passage des clients en fin de soirée

City full of astonishment

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: Location, people, courtesy
Location: Very central, we did almost everything we wanted to do on foot. Souks, squares, mosques, museums, gardens
Staying in the heart of the medina pulls you right into everything that is iconic about Marrakech, from the arrival, on foot, through winding alleys crowded with people, bikes, push carts and donkeys, to a beautiful oasis of calm and beauty hidden behind an old Moorish door. Excellent people in the hotel, always ready to help; good food, comfortable accommodation

The best of contrasts

Posted Feb 22, 2015
A fantastic place to stay, diametrically opposed to the streets outside and the approach to the Riad. We were very apprehensive when the taxi dropped us off but soon got to appreciate the complete contrast between where we were staying and the streets around it. The Riad was like an oasis in the real life of The Medina. Very refreshing, very stylish, an exact haven in contrast to life outside.

Great Riad!

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Location: In the heart of the Medina with everything within walking distance.
We loved every minute of our stay at Riad Karmela. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well. The interior courtyards were luxurious and a peaceful oasis to relax in. The bedroom was clean and comfortable and we slept really well there. The furniture and decor throughout was sumptuous. The buffet breakfasts had plenty of choice and set us up well for the day. I can't wait to go back!

Lovely, Welcoming, Riad

Posted Feb 2, 2015
Pros: An authentic riad to a great standard and a private roof terrace
Location: The medina is full of bustling alleys and street hawkers trying to sell you everything and anything, but that's Marrakech!
We arrived by the transfer arranged by the riad (I think this is a must for anyone arriving in Marrakech for the first time), the property lies in a small quiet lane off one of the larger busy streets. The staff were very welcoming and made sure we were set up for our stay both at the hotel and in the city. We were upgraded to a suite which was great and the room itself was large and authentic to the area. The riad became a welcome sanctuary from the madness that is the medina!

Loved the Riad and its location

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Pros: Staff and their hospitality. Also the Riad has numerous courtyards, roof terraces all set out in the most authentic Moroccan décor.
Location: The location is perfect. The main square is only a few minutes walk. Also the Museums and palaces are walking distance.
Riad Karmela is a small piece of paradise in the middle of a very noisy medina. The hotel staff couldn't have done more for our comfort. I'd especially like to thank Saeed for his excellent service, he greeted us with mint tea on our arrival. Explained the Medina, how to haggle with sellers, what to do if we are lost and the best places to see. This information was priceless. One tip, book your taxi through the Riad (via email), their driver will not only pick you up but walk you to the Riad. Normal taxis only drop you at the main square from where, it is next to impossible to find your way to the Riad.

A sense of calm close to all the action.

Posted Jan 8, 2015
Pros: Location, cleanliness, good breakfast, nice rooms.
Cons: Noisy throughout the day and night as around a central courtyard, expensive extras, safety on walk home especially at night.
Location: In the Medina so very central. Lots to do.
Close to the Souks and central square, the Riad was well situated, full of character and clean. The staff were on the whole good however we felt that the prices for extras (food, drinks and the taxi to and from the airport etc.) were exploitative especially given the difficult location of the Riad to find if a taxi was not used and that the advice given by staff upon arrival could have been clearer.
