    Profile: Medina

    Profile: Medina

    The bustling Medina of Marrakech, the historic district right at the city's center, is its liveliest neighborhood. At its center is the Djemma El-Fna, a town square surrounded by street bazaars where fruit stalls, food vendors, snake charmers, and acrobats draw large crowds into the late evening hours.

    The Medina also boasts many Riads, palatial Moroccan mansions with rooms surrounding a central open-air courtyard garden. Many of these buildings have been converted into luxurious hotel accommodations for visitors looking to live like Moroccan royalty.

      A wonderful Riad with beautiful decoration with plenty of privacy and places to relax in comfort. The staff were amazing and could not do enough to make our stay one to remember. Food in the restaurant was first class at very reasonable cost. All in all we would not hesitate to return again.

      Riad Karmela is in a great location, only 10 mins walk to the Spice Market & souks & about 15 mins to the main square. We only booked a standard room but this was spacious, clean & quiet. The Riad itself is a haven of calm after the madness of the souks & the roof terrace is a lovely place to chill out after a day exploring the city.

      The Road Karmela was quite, quaint and pleasant. The staff was amazing, food lovely and location perfect for our Old City needs. The bed was a bit old and uncomfortable and the floor rug quite dirty. As a result, our room wasn't great.

      Excellent hotel, and the atmosphere was really quiet and romantic, staff were really helpful location is really nice, and close to the market and in the heart of the city. Only negatives about the location is that no parking close by, and the city is full of motorcycles and air is very polluted by exhaust smoke

      Amazing experience at this riad!!

      I am so glad we stayed at Riad Karmela. Everything was so fantastic for my wife and I and our 18 year old son. From the time we arrived, one of the friendly staff fluent in 3 languages poured us the traditional mint tea with a few biscuits and ran through the Riads amenities and went through a folder with various tours we can go on and gave us a map outlining the main attractions of Marrakech. We ate at the riad every night Of our 4 night stay as we have read a few bad reviews from buying from the souks as meat is left out, non refrigerated all day ect. The meals were all delicious and the deserts to die for. If you don’t eat there see if you can try the ice cream. Mouthwatering!! The terraces on top of the riad are quiet and relaxing. After a days sightseeing and after dinner we would sit on the terrace and relax. The sunsets can’t be put into words. The bar is very reasonably priced. 3or 4€ a can. The tables for dinner and breakfast are spread out on the ground floor around a large water feature and you sit amongst 4 large orange trees full of fruit this time of year(dec) The breakfasts are smorgasbord and are my sons favourite part of day. The staff remember if you have tea or brewed coffee after first morning and automatically appears the next morning. I know it sounds a bit “corny” but we have since stayed in a riad in Fez and really wish we could take riad Karmela and it’s staff with us.

      As promised this traditional Riad is beautiful. The staff is friendly and eager to help. They set up a couple of tours for me and my airport transfers and I was very happy with all of that.

      Beautiful Riad Karmela

      Riad Karmela was beautiful and a great place to stay in Marrakesh. It is a luxury Riad - very spacious with several adjacent locations for room selection. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful providing us information on how to navigate around the Medina including a map and suggested site to visit. Breakfast buffet was very good with many options. They arranged our transport to the airport at 3:30 am with no problem! It was a lovely way to end our travels in Morocco. I would highly recommend Riad Karmela and would choose to stay there again.

      Fantastic location right in the middle of the old medina. An oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The staff are so helpful and kind. Our room was really funky. We actually stayed in Riad Karmela Princess which is owned by Riad Karmela. It is very difficult to find so worth getting the Riad to organise taxi transport from the airport.
