Hidden in the depth of Kasbah, Riad Karim is a real gem. Only a few rooms, everything works fine (Hot Water and WiFi). But my personal highlight is the very cosy common area, including the rooftop terrasse. The staff (Samra) is super friendly and helpful with any requests (laundry service, support in making bookings, restaurant tips, etc.)

We stayed here for two nights in January and we had a good time! The owner of the riad was very helpful (in finding a good hammam, arranging - and rearranging - a taxi to the airport) and was reachable whenever necessary. The rooms were very tidy and breakfast was good! Hot water was available although sometimes it required some... More

My wife and I spent a lovely day here enjoying a private Moroccan cooking class, as recommended by Sahara Tours. My apologies to the staff for being so bad with names. The lady chef was kind and knowledgeable. The gentleman manager was friendly and ably translated for the chef. After lunch, we took his advice to visit the local craft... More

We had an excellent stay at the Riad. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The Riad itself was modest, good rooms with bathrooms and a nice roofterasse. Nice breakfast, and they also served good dinner for us one night. If we go back to Marrakech, we certainly would stay there again. And I will recommend it to my friends.

Met some fantastic people staying in this riad, the staff especially. I'd recommend anyone visiting marrakech to stay here, it feels more like staying at a friend's place than a guest house. Beautifully decorated.

We had an amazing long weekend in Riad Karim, it was our first time in Marrakech (coming from NY), the service was great (even if we arrived quite late), the room was clean and the location is amazing, very close to Jammaa el fna place, so you really feel like you live with the locals, we definitly recommend this place!
