Recent stay at Riad Karmela
Great location....super nice staff and unique accommodation. The room wifi service was spotty requiring frequent access to personal cellular data plan. Staff was able to book reservations at popular local restaurants and very nice tours...all with minimal intervention on my part. Overall, superb visit and stay at Marrakech.

Fantastic Riad
Best Vacation ever. Fantastic Riad. We felt as we were in an old historical home. Staff was very service minded and always available. My wife and daughters loved the shopping and always felt safe in the area. We will certainly be back next time we visit Marrakech.

Amazing experience at this riad!!
I am so glad we stayed at Riad Karmela. Everything was so fantastic for my wife and I and our 18 year old son. From the time we arrived, one of the friendly staff fluent in 3 languages poured us the traditional mint tea with a few biscuits and ran through the Riads amenities and went through a folder with various tours we can go on and gave us a map outlining the main attractions of Marrakech. We ate at the riad every night Of our 4 night stay as we have read a few bad reviews from buying from the souks as meat is left out, non refrigerated all day ect. The meals were all delicious and the deserts to die for. If you don’t eat there see if you can try the ice cream. Mouthwatering!! The terraces on top of the riad are quiet and relaxing. After a days sightseeing and after dinner we would sit on the terrace and relax. The sunsets can’t be put into words. The bar is very reasonably priced. 3or 4€ a can. The tables for dinner and breakfast are spread out on the ground floor around a large water feature and you sit amongst 4 large orange trees full of fruit this time of year(dec) The breakfasts are smorgasbord and are my sons favourite part of day. The staff remember if you have tea or brewed coffee after first morning and automatically appears the next morning. I know it sounds a bit “corny” but we have since stayed in a riad in Fez and really wish we could take riad Karmela and it’s staff with us.

A lovely stay
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful and my room was quite large. There are a number of quiet, lovely lounge spaces to relax in after venturing out into the city. It is in the middle of the Medina, so not easy to find initially. I recommend using the taxi service arranged by the Riad Karmela for your arrival.

Great location in Medina!
Great location in Medina. Beautiful Riad. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. WiFi signal was weak in the room but worked well in the common sitting areas.

Very Good 8.0
Nice but overpriced
Service is very good. Staff are all very friendly. However overall it is over priced comparing to local price standard. Toilet facility is dated, no hot water boiler, safe not working, WiFi not stable... Also there was huge noise in the middle of the night.
