Hi,

Unless anyone has stayed at all three I'm not sure how your questions can be answered?

i agree with shimmin. i have stayed at riad karmela, and found the decorations to be 'tasteful/beautiful and authentic'. it was also a very nice place to stay and relatively easy to navigate to.

but i have no idea about the others, so cannot compare.

Thanks, you're right. Then perhaps in terms of location.

Those who know where they are located, even if they hadn't stayed in them, perhaps can rate them in terms of best/easiest location, close to central places and attractions.

Many thanks.

Even tho we stayed at Riad Karmela…2 years and 5 months ago, (the location is still the same, Right??) we thought, compared to the other roads…not the ones that you mentioned…we great for us. Just far enough away from the square to have a great walk and see the sights ….

Everyone will have their own thoughts on location. Some will want to be close to the square, others will enjoy a walk through the less touristy areas. All riads in the medina are close enough to the main tourist sites within the medina to walk to them anyway.

Hi,

Tchaikana and Karmela are quite close to each other near the Musee de Marrakech, not the easiest to find to start with but close to the souks. Dar One is near the Palais Bahia so a 10 or 15 minute walk to the main square.

Hope Karmela has improved in the intervening years;

We've just returned from the Karmela, not the one we booked ( long story, look out for my review) lovely riad, not sure about the location, might come as a surprise at just how un-touristy the area is to those uninitiated, or used to tourist resorts?
