Just returned from our two week holiday in Morocco and this hotel was one of the best things about it! It's brilliantly located in the centre of the old town with all its noise and mayhem, but as soon as you shut the doors behind you - you are in a completely diffrent place, peaceful and calm. The design of...

We had an amazing time at Dar Charkia. My fiancé and I stayed at the Riad during our visit to Morocco in July. As soon as we entered the hotel, we were greeted by the owner (Michael) as well as a cold glass of water and orange juice. Michael was extremely helpful. He sat down with us and immediately mapped...

Marrakech is one loud, busy , in your face town but enter the door into Dar Charkia and be transported to another world, just as the perfect Riad should be. Fantastic place, great people. Owners were on hand every day to give personal advise and help to make your visit a wondrous experience. Forget the larger, conglomerate owned riads and...

Dar Charkia is a fantastically furnished Riad in a prime location within easy walking distance to the main square and souks. Lisa and Michael's friendly and amiable staff provide a relaxed 24 hour service and if you're not in the mood to venture out, the food (especially the lamb Tagine) is sensational. There is no greater compliment than a recommendation...

Even prior to arriving, Dar Charkia and Lisa had provided us with extensive communication and information, making everything upon arrival straightforward and hassle free. Our flight was delayed but we were warmly greeted and driven to our destination. The location is excellent - only a few minutes walk from the main square of the market. On our first morning Lisa...

My wife and I inserted a 3-night stay in Marrakesh into our Spanish vacation and it proved to be a highlight of the entire month. Marrakesh itself was incredible -- and about 47 C in the summer heat -- so we needed an escape in the late afternoon. Riad Dar Charkia was our oasis from the bustle of the souks...

We had choices to stay out at Palmyrie and chose to stay in the old city near Dar El Bacha at the Riad Dar Charkia. This Riad is perfectly positioned right near the noise and hustle of the souks and yet provides perfect sanctuary to escape with a cold Casablanca Beer in hand. It gives you a feel for the...
