Thank you very much to Lisa and Michael at Dar Charkia for making our 4 day stay such an excellent experience. The riad is very well maintained and the owners were around every evening when we came back from our day out, which leant itself to a friendly, convivial atmosphere. Interior decor especially stunning, Lisa has done a great job...

Had the most wonderful time at Dar Charkia could not of asked for more ... great food and top-notch service why anyone would stay at a hotel in such a strange place is beyond me? Make sure you try Lisa's food .... we got ripped of a couple of times at tourist trap's. At Dar Charkia it was so reasonable,...

Our arrival in Marrakech was a path made smooth by our hosts Michael and Lisa, who provided us with a detailed synopsis covering immigration, currency exchange (currently about 12.3 dirhams to the GBP), airport transfer (150 dirhams), menu choices for our first evening and much more. Athough we are both self-sufficient seasoned travellers, this was very helpful and we arrived...

A fantastic hidden gem of a Riad. Located in the Medina just near enough to all the main attractions. The owners Michael and Lisa arranged our collection from the airport and Michael was on hand to meet us when we arrived, with a very well articulated and excellent briefing on what was available to do and what to expect. The...

For such an occasion as celebrating a 40th birthday, I really couldn't have asked for better hosts to look after my friends and create such a memorable setting that has left such a strong desire to return and self-indulge once again. Beautiful Riad, and in these days where customer service is lacking, their attention to detail was fabulous. W.x

A lovely, lovely riad in the heart of the Medina. The riad is a haven of tranquilty and is beautifully set out and designed, a reflection of Lisa & Michael's personal taste. The rooms are a good size with each one being unique. What really sets this riad apart is the owners intimate knowledge of Marrakech and their willingness to...

Riad Dar Charkia is a lovely hide-away. The owners are great and made us feel at ease. There was a large group of us celebrating a friends 40th birthday and we had hired the whole Riad. We were treated extremely well and we were treated to a guided tour and advice on bartering. A fantastic feast was prepared for us...

12 of us stayed at Dar Charkia which is situated perfectly in the heart of marrakech, amongst the hustle and bustle. Once inside the riad its a tranquil retreat where you are welcomed by Lisa (who is a fantstic host) and her team. Dar Charkia will arrange outings to spas, taxis and restaurants. We felt very spoilt as Lisa kindly...

The Riad is simply beautiful, with rooms that are thoughtfully decorated for both ambiance and comfort and is in a location that serves both exploring Marrakech and relaxation (wonderful roof top terrace). Lisa, our hostess, was fantastic with great tips and annotated maps about the best places to shop, but was not intrusive and when not needed was not noticed....
