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!

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....

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.

This is definately a great choice if looking for an authentic riad experience. The inside decor is luscious, inviting and extremely tastefully done to make you feel like you are in the middle of a Moroccan oasis. There are two open fireplaces that we would cozy up to in the evenings to have dinner and chill. Food: ethnic and mouth...

First time in Morocco and stayed at the Riad Karmela, end of November 2016. It is a lovely place to stay if you want to be near the real Marrakech. Close to the Medina, restaurants/coffee shops and markets. Stayed for 3 nights here with my daughter and our host Bushka was very nice and helpful giving us good advice and...

A beautiful, authentically restored riad in the heart of the Medina. We were made to feel really welcome and cared for, and were served mint tea and pastries upon arrival and throughout our stay. We booked a budget package but were given a free upgrade to the main riad. The breakfast and evening meals were divine.

My girlfriend and I stayed in riad Karmela two nights in October. We had an absolute great stay. The place is difficult to find (if you come from the airport it's easiest to arrange a taxi via the riad) but once you are there you will be surprised by the place. The rooms are great and each has an own...
