“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Stayed four nights at Dar Charkia and we really loved it. Beautifully decorated and one of the loveliest places to stay. Lisa, Michael and their amazing staff are very helpful and truly lovely, make you feel completely at home, they are happy to oblige with everything. The rooms are amazing, and the location is ideal to be in the Medina. Fantastic and helpful tips and hints before we came out gave us a really good feeling and then extremely helpful tips and recommendations when we arrived was also very helpful.Are already planning to return.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous.

This was the 2nd visit to Dar Charkia, based upon a great experience from 2010.
Our Choice of riad in the Medina this time was easy,: Hospitality, friendliness from owners and staff at dar Charkia is highly appreciated,-- and above what you could expect. Same valid for hints and tips,-- booking restaurants, transportation etc.
Food and atmosphere was excellent. If / when returning to Marrakech, Our Choice of accommodation will be easy !

Having read the many positive reviews before we booked I can honestly say our 4 night stay last week lived up to our expectations. Prompt helpful responses from Michael/Lisa on booking/confirmation and introductory detailed email on recommendattions/tips hints was also very helpful - as was the very relaxed greeting/meeting we had with Lisa. Her marked up map of the Medina also informative for a first time visitor. The riad is very tastefully decorated and our room was a delight - and quiet. Special thanks to Sammy and Sahid who looked after us during our stay - to quote the old adage "if you want good customer service - employ nice people" - nothing was a bother - and their english is better than mine ! I'm a regular user of TA and with so much choice in Marrakesh of where to stay TA comes into its own in helping make that decision and Dar Charkia is deservedly up there with the best. Restaurant recommendations were spot on - can recommend Pepe Nero, Cafe Arabe and the Indian (La Koubla ?)

Dar Charkia must have been one of the loveliest places we stayed in on our many holidays in different parts of the world. It is everything you will find described in the other reviews: Lisa, Michael and their staff are very helpful and absolutely lovely, the rooms are amazing, breakfast is great and the location is perfect. But it is more: Dar Charkia feels like home in a city that does take you out of your comfort zone a bit, especially when it's your first visit!
The atmosphere is very relaxed and you can have breakfast whenever you want from 8 AM onwards.
We went on a daytrip to Kasbah Angor where we had a three-hour walk through berber villages at the feet of the Atlas mountains, and also the "Faim d' Epices cookery school" is an absolute must.
The only negative was that our stay was too short: we could have done with an extra day for shopping. But then we've got the perfect excuse to come back!

This has to be the most relaxed I've felt after a weekend away. Marrakech is a hectic place but Dar Charkia is so peaceful and relaxed you wouldn't know what was going on outside. The staff all speak excellent english and are very friendly. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and the bathrooms are spotless. The owners Lisa & Michael gave us a warm welcome and gave us tips on how to make the most of our stay which proved very useful. The breakfast was excellent but the dinner was something special. Everything is in walking distance so you don't have to bother with cabs. We booked on the recommendation of a friend and we shall be recommending it to our friends. Hopefully we'll be returning before too long.

It's like stepping into a hidden oasis of perfection
Hidden behind a door at the end of an alleyway you find yourself entering into the warmest reception at the end of your journey
Waiting to greet you is Lisa your hostess and probably the most knowledgable private shopper in Marrakech
She presents you with her own annotated street map showing the best bars shops and sites to visit don't waste your money on a guide book
This is a jewel in the foots of Atlas don't miss it

My husband booked this place for my Christmas present and I was a little nervous as I thought it would be out of my comfort zone. I needn't have worried as from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome.
The owners Michael and Lisa were there to greet us and they gave us some recommendations on where to visit and where to eat. They were very helpful and the information was very useful. The rest of the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble for them.
Our room was spacious and the bathroom was roomy and very clean.
The breakfast was excellent; there was lots of it and it was very tasty. We also had an evening meal there and it was delicious. I had chicken tagine and I loved it.
Everything is in walking distance from Dar Charkia and the staff will help you with directions or order you a cab if you need one.
We have travelled a lot but I can honestly say this was the best weekend away we have done, it was a very romantic break and I hope I get treated again.
