    Karmela is An. Oasis calm in the middle of the rush of Marrakesh. Very good value for money.

    They couldn't recomend us a restaurante at afordable prices. All restaurant were around 30 € per person, wich for Moroco it a bit high end.

    Very Good Riad in an excellent location. Joel and Bouchra were very helpful and Riad was lovely, well looked-after and in a great location.

    Not so keen on the birds pecking at the cereal in the morning!

    We were met by friendly staff who were were willing to offer advice about the locality and places to visit. We never felt that any requests were too much trouble.Said on reception arranged great rooms taking all our requests into consideration and celebratory wine on arrival which was a lovely touch.Kamal who drove the Riad's car and took and picked us up from nights out even at 2.30am!! His driving skills in the narrow busy streets were incredable. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely go back

    If I was travelling in a female only group this is not the Riad I would choose, as the walk home at night is a bit dark and we had few men trying to lead us to the Riad who would not take No for an answer. Our sutie was lovely with a private balcony but the bathroom let it down a little as the shower had very little power and bath looked a bit old and cracked. Apart form those minor details a beautiful friendly Road.

    We loved coming back to the Riad Karmela after the hot streets of Marrakech, there is a very cool courtyard and you can relax there and have a drink or something to eat. There are several areas which to sit in between the two Riads, you would be spoiled for choice, the staff are so friendly and helpful, always smiling and looking after us. We just loved it, we are two cousins, females in our 50's and we travel any chance we get, we felt so safe and looked after in this Riad, totally recommend it to everyone.

    There is nothing we disliked about this Riad, that is our honest opinion.

    Beautiful courtyard and staff were friendly.

    I found the room quite claustrophobic (Haroune lounge) and was quite disappointed to find it wasn't anything like the pictures on your website. The apartment was for 5 but really should be for maximum 3 as there wasn't a lot of space and wasn't very bright. Also, the tv was not at a level where you could view it comfortably (shoved into a cabinet by the wall), and wasn't working. We asked for it to be looked at and someone did come and look but couldn't do anything to fix it as said aerial is on the roof or something to that effect- very disappointing.

    Amazing Riad. Met some really nice folks there. Wonderful atmosphere, twas like an oasis in the middle of a city. The location sold it for me, and my god its right in the middle of Medina.

    An Oasis of calm in the centre of the frantic souks. Fantastic food. Well worth eating in the Riad at least once during your stay. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent location for exploring the souks. Not easy to find if you haven't been to it before so it is well worth contacting the Riad to arrange your transfer from the airport. 100% recommended.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Riad Karmela. That was exactly what we've expected from being in a riad and even better. Joel and everybody were very friendly and helpful. We really liked our room and sitting and hanging out in common area was also a pleasure. There's free wi-fi access in common area and they do not bill for mint tea and sweets.

    Thoughtful, warm and friendly service by all the staff. Riad Karmela is exquisitely decorated throughout, providing a relaxing haven contrasting with the atmospheric hustle and bustle of the medina. Little quirky touches such as the two pet tortoises were a delight. Fantastic food: a wide choice for breakfast, with more than you can eat, and the evening meals that we had in the restaurant were authentic, varied and highly delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the spa facilities (hammam and massage) and an assortment of excursions were available and extremely enjoyable. We look forward to returning!

    The friendliness of the staff and the decor of the hotel. It was clean, crisp and open with plenty of natural light and a beautiful roof terrace. We were welcomed with the classic Moroccan mint tea and briefed about the city and what was there for us to do - which is exactly what we needed.

    Friendly, personal welcome. Without asking for it, we got a lot of practical information upon our arrival, Good food. Nice atmosphere. Very nice roof terrace.

    Some extra (softer) pillows in the closet in our room would be nice,
