A beautiful, authentically restored riad in the heart of the Medina. We were made to feel really welcome and cared for, and were served mint tea and pastries upon arrival and throughout our stay. We booked a budget package but were given a free upgrade to the main riad. The breakfast and evening meals were divine.

My girlfriend and I stayed in riad Karmela two nights in October. We had an absolute great stay. The place is difficult to find (if you come from the airport it's easiest to arrange a taxi via the riad) but once you are there you will be surprised by the place. The rooms are great and each has an own...

Had a fantastic 4 day stay in the Riad Karmela. The staff were extremely helpful and very accommodating. They even organised for their chef to buy me a tagine at local prices!!!

Riad Karmela is an economical choice and well located in the medina for access to all the sights. Being where it is in the medina does have its problems though, as taxis cannot drop you off at the riad, you have to walk the last 5 or 10 minutes, which is fine if they send someone to show you the...

“We stayed at appartment Kaltoum, it was really fantastic and so much space. The private terrace is a nice idea, although this area was not so clean. We preferred to sit on the fantastic big roof top terrace with a nice view.”
