Stayed here for 5 nights & what a wonderful stay we had. Our friend had stayed here several times but this was our first trip, but, we were all welcomed like old friends & made to feel like we were in a home from home! The check in process was accompanied by a very welcome cold drink. We were shown...

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 for four nights at the Riad Karmela having booked through BA. After requesting a transfer by email the day before we were due to arrive, the Riad promptly booked us a taxi service from the airport (cheaper than booking through the BA website) which made what could have been a difficult journey through the medina really simple. They...

I made my reservations 3 months in advance of my trip and was so excited to stay here. I paid for one of the more expensive rooms to give us (me and my fiancé) lots of space. After 38 hours of travel for me, my fiancé and I arrived at the Riad expecting to spend 15 days in paradise. We...

The wonderful staff here genuinely cares about your well being. The rooms are quite comfortable, the steam room is very steamy, good massages amidst orange trees, tortoise walking about and fountains. It is perfect!

Amazing stay in Marrakesh at the Road Karmela! The staff was more than friendly and went out of their way to make the stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. It is truly a small oasis within the city center, located at a reasonable distance to the main square and located perfectly, if you prefer more local neighbourhoods. 10/10. Next...

It was our third visit to the welcoming and delightful Riad Karmela. We were looking forward to staying in our favourite room. This was alas still occupied on our arrival. No problem. Two steps and we were in the magnificent new Karmela Princesse: a large Art Deco room with a happy sunny big bathroom and a spiral staircase to our...

Wonderful Riad in an excellent location,Staff were very friendly and obliging. Fabulous room in a very peaceful Riad but only minutes away from the full on street life.Good Wifi and all facilities. We would also recommend the food breakfast was very good and we ate there twice for dinner which was as good as anywhere we had been.

Brilliant location offering a relaxing haven from the full on street life of the Medina. Beautiful Moroccan style accommodation, cool courtyards, great food and a BAR! Plus Wifi that works. Words are not enough, you just need to go there.

Riad Karmela is like an oasis in the busy Medina. Expect to be blown away when you first walk in. Reception, mint tea and information given at check in was a great start. The room was comfortable and had a large bathroom. The air conditioning worked well. Breakfast was great, except for the bees that attacked the sweet pastries. I...
