“Memories to last forever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2009

WOW! What an amazing experience we had at this most beautful riad, right in the centre of the city. What surprised us was the cool, calm and relaxed atmosphere it offers, behind streets that are noisy, chaotic and hot. You can truly experience all the wonderful things the city has to offer and then return to the sanctuary of the riad. It was just wonderful to be met by Lisa and her lovely staff on the first night and given a warm welcome to this wonderful city.
Thank-you so much, we wll definitely recommend you.

Dar Charkia, located in the Belgravia or 5th Avenue of locations is next to the Royal Palace. It is a couple of minutes from the souks, so no tired legs before you bargain. You arrive back at the Riad after a day organized to perfection by Lisa and Michael the owner and a sigh is the first thing you will do. A sigh that says "why did I spend so long away?". The Riad is an oasis of calm with endless nooks to hide away. The service is unobtrusive but excellent. Every room is unique and decorated to designer standards. Nothing is too much trouble. The orientation talk on arrival is essential to make the most of your time in Marrakech but you will find that one trip is not enough and rebooking Dar Charkia will be your last thought as you leave.

The Riad Dar Charkia was a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. The services were unbelieveable and the staff working at the hotel were kind and friendly and always there to help and make suggestions. I had a brilliant time and would recommend this riad to everyone... a fabulous holiday!

Concealed within the hustle and bustle of Marrakech lies the magical riad that is Dar Charkia. When being led down the narrow alleyways the last thing I expected to find was the stunning sanctuary that we were to call home for our short time in Morocco. From the moment you walk through the door, you are greeted with charming hospitality and captivating surroundings; this place really is a palace. Circling a calm and refreshing courtyard are all the rooms; each one with its own unique theme and decorated to detailed perfection! The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and the food was exquisite. Dar Charkia's location couldn't have been better, a two minute walk from the main road and taxi pick-up point and a ten minute walk to the souks and medina. The location was both convenient and perfectly safe to walk through at night. I had such a wonderful time staying at Dar Charkia and have no doubts that I will be returning in the near future.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Dar Charkia. The Riad itself is absolutely beautiful, so much care and attention has been put into furnishing and decorating it. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, which makes the stay there all the more relaxing. There is a lovely roof-top terrace with seating areas, where you can eat breakfast in the morning sunshine which I found very enjoyable. The staff are superb, extremely friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend Dar Charkia to anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay in Marrakech. I very much hope to have the possibility of returning there myself someday.

Warmly welcomed on our arrival, everyone at Dar Charkia could not have been more helpful during our magical stay in Marrakech. This incredably romantic hotel was in heart of the Medina, easy to find yet an oasis of peace. I was so taken with its staff and ambience it was tempting never to venture out! Unusually for a hotel the owners tooks great care to explain to newcomers not only the interesting sites and acitvities but also some key tips on dos and don'ts. You will be in safe hands and Dar Chakia and have a lot of fun too!

The Dar Charkia Riad really is an oasis of calm within a city that is bright and effervescent. Lisa and her staff were very welcoming and provided everything we needed. Lisa put a lot of effort into helping our party to plan a fantastic itinerary- tailor made for us. The bedrooms were beautiful and each had a character of its own. I loved the small touches such as tealights around the riad, candles in the tree, petals and flowers. The pool was a welcome relief after the heat of the Morrocan day!
I particularly enjoyed spending time on the roof- breakfast in the tented area, sun bathing and chilling out in the evenings. A wonderful location for a Morrocan break.
