Riad Karmela is a hidden gem in the madness of the Médina the perfect place to stay to taste the true Marrakech. Highly recommend airport transfers as are cost effective and pain free. On arrival we were greeted with mint tea and given a few recommendations of what/where to go

Hotel's Favourite
Selected this riad online - always a risk - but had carefully read reviews and knew what I was hoping to find ..... and thankfully we fell on our feet. The riad has 19 rooms, not too large but large enough. The buildings around the court yard were stunning, beautifully cared

This is a relatively budget Riad and you get what you pay for. The best part about this Riad is their staff who are extremely helpful and accommodating. Our reservations were in for the blue room in the riad. When we check in we were greeted with some mint tea and cookies and

The Riad will exchange Euros to Dirhams, which is extremely helpful. Contact them about your other questions. Their staff is excellent!

Are the rooms warm at night? The answer is certainly, yes. Of course, it depends on which time of year as to just how warm, but the a/c unit in the room is quite capable of either warming it or cooling it. Breakfast? It's a continental type buffet, with fresh fried/scrambled eggs if requested. Very good coffee. Have it on the luxurious terrace, delightful. Nikki D's review ( above ), is on the level. It's ok, but not massively varied. You might possibly be a bit bored after the 5th breakfast. However, the rest of the riad more than makes up for that. Excellent place, high quality everything else, especially location & the staff and managers. We had 5 nights in August, going back for 3 nights in May. Footnote... If you go there, don't be tempted to take a normal taxi/public transport from the airport to the riad the first time. They won't know where it is. Let the riad arrange the taxi for you, otherwise you will have a long and uncertain walk ahead of you!
