Riad Karmela
Amazing location
Great location and the driver (arranged via the Riad in advance) was really helpful. We were upgraded to Karmela Pricesse which was a nice surprise. We were given good information about the local area and how to find our way around. We were unfortunate to visit in very cold wet weather and unfortunately could not get our room warm. We did mention this but unfortunately it remained an issue throughout our 2 day stay. We ate in the Riad restaurant on the first night. The food was very good although quite pricey and again, the dining room was very cold so we elected to eat elsewhere on the second night to warm up a little! Breakfast is fine but unfortunately I have a bit of a fear of birds flying round indoors - and there were always birds! Just one the first day but 2 the second day and they were perstently landing on the buffet food which completely put me off breakfast. Some food was covered but the pastries and bread were not and they were enjoying tucking in to these! In warmer weather I’m sure the Riad would be more comfortable but unfortunately I wouldn’t be keen to visit again due to the birds.

Oasis amongst the chaos
Absolutely loved riad karmela. Going back a second time was like coming home. The staff were so friendly and helpful and it was such a peaceful tranquil place to be amongst the hustle of the streets around. Lovely rooms with water and dates. Tea facilities would have been nice but staff happy to accommodate. Definitely will be back if returning to Morocco

Riad Karmela
Lovely, Atmospheric Moroccan Riad
The Riad Karmela is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the Marrakesh Medina. I’ve been through many Middle Eastern markets, but found this one overwhelming—dirty, confusing, subject to relentless hawkers to the point where it becomes impossible simply to look at the merchandise on offer. In this unpleasant context, the Riad (hotel) was a delightful and beautiful escape. Staff and accommodations were lovely. The Riad captures the best of old Morocco.

Wonderful stay. Highly recommend.
Riad Karmela was wonderful. The Riad and room were an oasis in the middle of the medina. The food was amazing. And the staff was especially friendly, hospitable and accommodating. They went above and beyond, even helping to track down a delicious local dish we'd been really hoping to try for dinner. Highly recommend a stay here.

Wonderful Riad in Marrakech
We had a lovely stay at Riad Karmela! We had a warm welcome when we arrived, and a large and comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent, and so were the optional dinner and hammam/massage offerings.
