10/10 Exceptional

This is our first trip to Morocco with many uncertainty about surroundings. From the time we called front desk before arriving until the airport drop off. We were all well taken care of. The riad staff were very friendly. All local excursions were well arranged. The riad is close to most Marrakech attractions. Very quiet inside madina.

8/10 Very good

Pretty good. Friendly staff.
The hotel sent a driver to pick us up at the airport. This is not free but the service was good and the driver was friendly. He drove us to a parking area about 300 meters from the hotel and then walked us the rest of the way. Upon arrival the staff greeted us and gave us some tea and helped us with a map of the area. The room itself was nice. One double bed and two single beds. There was an air conditioning unit in each room that worked well. Beds were good The breakfast consists of coffee, juice, cheese, fruit, meat, cheese, breads and you can request eggs. Dinner needs to be requested in the morning but was pretty good. We had a chicken dish one evening and beef another evening. The staff was helpful in terms of communication with our tour services. There are two watch outs with this hotel. First, the hot water is inconsistent both in temperature and pressure. Second, the location is tricky to find through the maze of the old city. It’s important to have a phone with GPS to find your way back.

10/10 Exceptional

I had a terrific 3 day stay in this beautiful, unique Riad in the heart of iconic Marrakech. The staff are terrific and the service is outstanding. They searched for a Lab to do my COVID test 24 hours before I flew back to the US. It was a public holiday and most lans were closed, they found me one that opened for 2 hours, made my reservation, got me a cab and even paid for the cab, you can't ask for more. The rooms are great, the breakfast is terrific, and the dinning is home made. Lovely place to soak the Marrakesh true atmosphere, right in the heart of the old town (Medena). I highly recommend it.

The staff at Riad Karmela made our stay very special, comfortable abs so much fun. We had the best of times in Marrakesh and that’s largely because of our stay there. We were looked after, excursions, drivers, delicious meals, hammam all arranged by the team. We could not recommend it more highly and will return there with the first opportunity. Clean, beautiful, homely, magical and in a great location close to all major attractions. For a true feel of Marrakesh this is the best Riad. Ioannis and Kevin
