This riad is well located close to the souk and attractions of the city which are within easy walking distance. The owners, Michael and Lisa, couldn't be kinder, and looked after me wonderfully. The rooms are beautiful and it was like staying in a palace. The riad is quiet and calm, internet available, delicious breakfasts; and dinner should you wish...

We had a fantastic time in Marrakech and it was really made by the hospitality and local advice provided by Lisa & Michael at Dar Charkia. Lisa gave us an excellent run-down of where to go and what to see and I would advise anyone to record the conversation as it is more comprehensive than any guidebook! The rooms are...

Myself and my husband stayed in Dar Charkia, a lovely riad tucked away in the back streets of the centre of the busy old town of Medina, Marrakech. It's the perfect peaceful antidote to the hot bustling streets of the city. The plunge pool in the courtyard surrounded by an eclectically decorated orange tree and relaxing seating area helps! The...

From the moment we arrived we were treated with a warm and friendly greeting. We were made thoroughly welcome and relaxed. Our needs were soon recognised and advice was flowing on an individual basis, so our stay in Marrakech was all we wanted it to be. The accommodation was very tasteful and classy without losing its charm and intimacy. The...

We chose Marrakech for the weather, culture, chic riads and fine dining, we were not disappointed. Lisa sorted a great itinerary for a 50th B'day trip, with shopping, golf and restaurants. The riad felt like home from home, cool and spacious, fully equiped for every eventuality with great staff on hand to top up the beer/vino etc. The rooms were...

Some of our pals stayed in Dar Charkia earlier in the year so we knew we would like it, and Wow it was great! Marrakech is a full-on, crazy busy shopping, haggling heaven...if you didn't have an oasis to retreat to I think you'd go loopy. Behind the unassuming walls and wooded door of the riyadh lies a serene and...

This was our first trip to Marrakech and it certainly won't be the last! The Dar Charkia was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay just a few minutes walk from the bustling Souks and some fabulous bars and restaurants. We were lucky enough to be upgraded, our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and had the best decor of any...

Before our stay i had been avidly reading the reviews on trip advisor, and was getting slightly worried that Dar Charkia would not live up to all the fantastic reviews. However the Riad, owners and staff were every bit as wonderful as the reviews suggested. The evening meal we had on the first night was fantastic and the breakfasts were...

Hidden away in the bustling medina, we arrived to the magnificent sanctuary of Dar Charkia to a warm welcome from the English speaking owners. An excellent dinner was enjoyed in the riad the first night and we also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts served on the roof terrace in luxouriuos Moroccan style. We had the benefit of filling the whole riad...
