The staff were very friendly and helpful. They took care of ordering taxis, and told us the essentials about getting around the Medina. Riad Karmela is a great place, especially the inner courtyard - a small oasis of calm.

Excellent hotel with very professional staff. Contact them for transportation and tours. They have excursions and hammam spa services on property. We were greeted with tea and a complete run down of the medina by Amin who was incredibly professional. They provided a map and were always available for questions. It is recommended not to walk around too late in the area as there are young kids that stay out after hours. Our tour around the medina was excellent and the breakfast was the best we had in all of Morocco. We will be back!

Pretty good. Friendly staff.
The hotel sent a driver to pick us up at the airport. This is not free but the service was good and the driver was friendly. He drove us to a parking area about 300 meters from the hotel and then walked us the rest of the way. Upon arrival the staff greeted us and gave us some tea and helped us with a map of the area. The room itself was nice. One double bed and two single beds. There was an air conditioning unit in each room that worked well. Beds were good The breakfast consists of coffee, juice, cheese, fruit, meat, cheese, breads and you can request eggs. Dinner needs to be requested in the morning but was pretty good. We had a chicken dish one evening and beef another evening. The staff was helpful in terms of communication with our tour services. There are two watch outs with this hotel. First, the hot water is inconsistent both in temperature and pressure. Second, the location is tricky to find through the maze of the old city. It’s important to have a phone with GPS to find your way back.

Kind owners, amazing staff, clean property. Comfortable rooms, tasty food and they do organize group tours with an outside company.if you would like to join one. If you are coming from the airport they will send someone to pick you up or if you are coming by taxi you will need to have the driver to get directions as it is hard and difficult to get to. It it’s in the middle of the old city. I would recommend it again. I am sure I will be back again. Thank you for making my trip amazing!

I had a terrific 3 day stay in this beautiful, unique Riad in the heart of iconic Marrakech. The staff are terrific and the service is outstanding. They searched for a Lab to do my COVID test 24 hours before I flew back to the US. It was a public holiday and most lans were closed, they found me one that opened for 2 hours, made my reservation, got me a cab and even paid for the cab, you can't ask for more. The rooms are great, the breakfast is terrific, and the dinning is home made. Lovely place to soak the Marrakesh true atmosphere, right in the heart of the old town (Medena). I highly recommend it.

The staff at Riad Karmela made our stay very special, comfortable abs so much fun. We had the best of times in Marrakesh and that’s largely because of our stay there. We were looked after, excursions, drivers, delicious meals, hammam all arranged by the team. We could not recommend it more highly and will return there with the first opportunity. Clean, beautiful, homely, magical and in a great location close to all major attractions. For a true feel of Marrakesh this is the best Riad. Ioannis and Kevin
