From the moment we walked into Riad Karmela, my sister and I were treated excellently. The staff are so incredibly helpful, speak great English and keep the place spotless! The riad is very beautiful - the courtyard with the traditional Moroccan fountain is very pleasant at breakfast, which itself is also lovely (and without limit!) I'd recommend the Hammam scrub...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 December 2016

I went for my birthday weekend in December. The Riad is impeccable. We got upgraded to a suite on the first floor which was really nice. All the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We booked the airport transfer through them as most of the reviews said it is impossible to find. Actually, with google map is not that difficult....

We stayed at Riad Karmel for one night prior to our tour of Southern Morocco and then a further three nights at the end of the tour to have a look around Marrakesh. It is essential to book a transfer to the Riad from the airport if you do not want to get lost! This worked very smoothly and it...

I have rated this 5 stars but do just have to say this isn't a luxury hotel with all the amenities that you would have if you were in one. If you want that then this isn't for you. However, what this does have is charm personified. Prior to arriving, very quick at responding to emails with questions, requests and...

This was our first time in Marrakech, we spent two nights here. We decided to spring for the King Suite with the Private Rooftop (Abdou Suite) and we were not disappointed. The ground floor of the Riad is beautiful with comfortable sitting areas and great staff. The owner (Joel) is always around and is gracious and helpful. They opened a...

Well placed for visiting the medina on foot. 10 minute walk from the Place Jemma El Fna, and despite that very calm and relaxing at all times of the day and night. The first time you go it's advisable to contact and ask the reception to book you a taxi from wherever you're arriving. The driver will get you to...

We just came home from a wonderful stay at Riad Karmela. The space is beautiful, the staff are really kind and welcoming and the location is right in the hear of Marrakech - a total refuge from the chaos. Stay here!

This place is just the place you need in Marrakech! The interior is in the magnificent morrocan style, with ornamented doors, tiles and carpets. The Riad has many small silent corners to enjoy a cop of tea or wine, an amazon rooftop terrace with a wiew and green plant and orange trees all over! We were looking for a little...

On the advice of a French friend who had stayed earlier this year at the Riad Karmela, I went there with my husband (we are both both retired) for a week over the New Year period (2017). We loved our stay there, the riad itself is quiet, beautifully decorated in the Moroccan style, and consists of rooms around three patios...

Transfer from Airport was made really smooth. The decor of the Riad was very stylish, pictures don't do it justice. An oasis from the bustle of the medina. Staff were always on hand to help, never made us feel like a burden.
