We stayed here for a couple of days at the end of our holidays as we had been next door in the sister hotel the riad petit karmala and was offered a couple of days here to compare the two. There really isn't anything to compare, they are both wonderful. This one has bigger rooms and more space to move...

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....

I just don't have enough words to say how good the staff at this riad were. Beautiful riad and within walking distance to all places. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome and were given lots of hints and tips of what to do and not to do which was very useful. They also have a spa which again...

Beautiful Place, clean and tidy! Lovely breakfast and diner. But the best is definitely the staff, very helpful, they speak many languages, very friendly, the staff are awesome! They make you feel at home! The night staff lad was amazing, extremely helpful and friendly. Great experience, definitely going back soon. (The staff spoke fluent English, Spanish, Portuguese, French.)

Our family of 5 stayed at Riad Karmela for two nights in December 2016. The Karmela is atmospheric, calming, and quiet, despite being in the middle of all the chaos of the Medina, and is family friendly too. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming, and were happy to help with any requests we had. We had a very good...

- Near to photography museum, old university and a lantern souk/wholesaler - all very much worth visiting. - Photography museum roof terrace cafe - intimate and excellent - turn right after Riad for those mentioned above and the first souks you come to are as good as any others so buy your gifts there, build a rapport locally and you...

If you are looking for the real Moroccan experience you should book your stay at Riad Karmela! It is located in the old city- Medina and near the souks. It can be pretty hectic when you are strolling around and shopping but once you enter the Riad it is like an Oasis inside the Medina. The staff is great, always...

The Riad is a great calm place in the middle of the loud and busy medina. The staff is always great and helpful, the rooms and the surrounding match perfect to the atmosphere of the medina. The only drawback is that we felt that the dinner and the transfer service (the just call and pay a small taxi) offered is...

The Riad Karmela is a beautiful riad located in the hectic old part of Marrakech, in the centre of the Medina, close to the souks. Each time, entering Riad Karmela felt like arriving in a quite, lovely safe haven. The Riad forms a big contrast to the crowded souks and small streets you'll pass during your stay in the old...

“The ground floor ones looked very appealing but I guess could feel less private if a group park up on the sofas outside your room. We were upstairs but I would be telpted by a ground floor next time - fabulous entry doors.”
