This Riad is only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the main square in Marrakesh, yet is a calm, relaxing escape from it. We enjoyed our stay, which was helped by the friendliness of the staff there, especially Soufiane, who greeted us as we arrived and led us through the alleyways to the Chalymar. This maze, however,...

The Riad is decorated for young people and is not so luxurious as the average of the Riads. However, the rooms are big and have good bathrooms. Breakfast is very good. he location is wonderful as it is near souk and Palaces Badii and Bahia. While staying there is seemed like if we were at home as Malika for sure...

Yes when you first see the location it can be a bit daunting, but you soon realise that the whole of the old town is set out along a maze of alleyways. Riad Chalymar provides a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of the main square and the souks. The rooms are comfortable clean and well serviced, ours was...

Ibrahim, who runs the Riad, has a great sense of service and was willing to kindly answer all our questions. Breakfast was good and abundant, rooms are comfortable and good value for money. Would go back here when I visit Marrakech next.

Had a amazing stay at this, riad staff were lovely, location was good if you want to get the true Marrakesh experience, very good value for money and the air conditioning was great. Thanks to the staff for making it an amazing experience. The riad also offers excursions which are perhaps more trustworthy than buying them off the street and...

We stayed here for a week. All the staff were really kind and helpful, especially booking us trips into the Sahara and the Atlas Mountains. Breakfast was lovely. Only slight issue was that we weren't given a key to the actual Riad, just to our room. This wasn't a problem as someone was usually around to let us in, but...

We spent the first 4 nights of our stay in Morocco at this Riad. From the very first moment we felt very welcome. Staff was very helpful organizing the transfer from the airport, picking us up from the taxi, showing us some nice hammam used by locals and also demonstrating how to cook Tajine. The rooms were very good value...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my riad. I do not know who you saw ! The owner and gestionaire riad for 3 years is me Jean Jacques, I do not think to be a woman. You must be thinking of buying you a pair of glasses, or a mémory card when you write a review a...

This is a really beautiful Riad .The Staff -Malika, Soufianne & Halima were all very kind, attentive and welcoming. Marrakech and the Square are full of hustle and bustle , but on returning to Riad Chalymar , it was so quiet, restful and peaceful. I stayed 4 nights and the breakfasts were excellent and plentiful , you would not be...

“We stayed on the first floor. No lift so not too many stairs to climb and far enough from the kitchen, so nice and quiet.”

“There are only two upper floors, so not many stairs, but they are a little steep and awkward, so maybe ground floor room is best if your knees are wearing out!”
