Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely time in this authentic Riyadh. We had a suite which has its own sun terrace. Our room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the Riyadh is very centrally located. The staff were really pleasant and helpful especially Mohammed. Marrakesh was warm in the daytime but cool in the evening so it was lovely to sit by a cosy log fire in the evenings. We really enjoyed our time here.

Lovely peaceful Riad with staff who couldn't do too much for us. Breakfast was great and the rooms comfy. Several roof terraces depending on how sociable we were feeling. A very short walk to the souks and the main square. Will definitely return.

The staff were all fantastic. Friendly, efficient and kind. I’ve travelled a lot and the staff at this Riad/Hotel were by far the best I’ve ever experienced. All were brilliant, but a special thanks to Said reception, Said hamam, Mohammed and Hayman waiters at the Princessa restaurant. Breakfast was good and very plentiful and I enjoyed lovely meals at both restaurants. The decor was authentic and restful.

Currently staying in the Riad Karmela Princesse. It’s about a 8 min walk from the main souk, and about 6 min walk from the closest place a taxi can drop off (so be prepared to carry some baggage). The staff are incredibly accommodating and helpful. They are very professional, friendly and speak excellent English, A real credit to the Riad. The suite we’ve booked is really nice, and there’s excellent wifi, the bed is a little hard, but the bathroom a little odd, with a separate toilet, shower and 2 sinks (but as the suite could sleep 3 or 4 I can understand this would be perfect). The extra bed is on a mezzanine level, but there’s no privacy screen. TV - not easy to fathom, but there’s nothing to watch unless you speak Arabic, Russian or Polish etc. There’s also a channel in English spouting some religious messages, and a Polish channel showing English language music videos. There’s no view of the outside at all, and we are concerned about privacy as the windows face in to the inside of the riad & the curtains don’t close completely- especially in the bathroom. Kettle, coffee & tea replenished daily & a bottle of water - very pleased!! Breakfast- 2 types of cold meats, 3 cheeses, decent selection of fruits (pomegranates are delicious), bread & 3 somewhat stale cereals. There was an omelette on show, so possibly they will make some eggs. 3 jugs of what looked like freshly squeezed orange (lovely) and a couple of coffee machines. Adequate, but a tiny bit disappointing. Would we stay here again? Possibly so, although I may look for somewhere with an outside window view.

Due to earthquake damage at our original riad, we had to quickly choose a new place for our 7 night stay so we were a bit nervous. The Karmela Princess turned out to be the perfect oasis for us! While the riad(s) are very special and the room was comfortable, well stocked and clean, the staff is beyond! Every person there went above and beyond, and we came out with new friends. Such a lovely group of people! Thank you for the hospitality and friendships!

We recently stayed and had a wonderful time. The staff were attentive and engaging. The food was great and the choices at breakfast were unexpected and very welcome. We often drank in the bar in the late afternoon/early evening and the snacks provided with the drinks were nice and much appreciated. It was a nice touch that the staff would refill your wine glass for you etc. The only niggle we had about the staff was our interaction with one member whose comments did come across as being rude, but we have marked that down to words/tone being lost in translation. We found the room a bit crowded with items of furniture and would suggest trying to remove a couple of pieces to make the room easier to move around. We would also suggest looking at the lighting in the room. As the rooms face into the Riad’s Courtyard, they aren’t the brightest and this was made worse by curtains that could not be fully opened. We did not like our window being left open by the cleaning staff. The little extras in the bedroom were great – fresh bottled water, dates, toiletries etc. Most guests do not expect their towels to be changed each day so I would suggest that you adopt the usual policy of asking guests to throw their towels in the shower if they’d like them replaced. The Riad was nicely decorated with a great atmosphere. For light sleepers, the room was a little noisy as you could (a) hear a local cockerel most mornings, (b) the setting up of breakfast and/or (c) those staying in the bar area later in the evening.

I was staying at the Karmela Princesse when the earthquake hit Marrakech on 8th September. The response from owner Joel and the staff was extraorinary. Calm throughout they worked to inform and reassure. They kept us fed and hydrated, accomodated those who were reluctant to return to their rooms and facilitated changed travel plans. From the bottom of my heart I thank them for everything they did and promise to return very soon.

Seriously, could not have asked for a better experience. All the staff is so sweet and amazing. They were so helpful and ready to give us recommendations on where to go or what to do. The riad itself is gorgeous and our rooms were straight out of a fairy tale. Really I highly recommend this riad if not for the friend staff and great serivce than for the absolutely perfect location. Really, if you are looking for a place that wont break the bank but is central to all the usual tourist spots than this is the place to go.

The riad Karmela Princess is not only beautiful, right off a quiet street inside the Medina, but what makes it really special is the people that work there, Amine, Mustafa, and all of them are so friendly and helpful! We stayed with my sister for seven days and would definitely recommend!

The staff were excellent. Very accommodating and helpful. My husband is Gluten free and they served him the most delicious baked goods at breakfast time. I wanted some. The only request I would make would be to explain some of the excellent excursions available at check in. Which they might do but we arrived very late at night. Thank you for your kindness and making us feel safe in the chaos of Marrakech.
