Oasis amongst the chaos
Absolutely loved riad karmela. Going back a second time was like coming home. The staff were so friendly and helpful and it was such a peaceful tranquil place to be amongst the hustle of the streets around. Lovely rooms with water and dates. Tea facilities would have been nice but staff happy to accommodate. Definitely will be back if returning to Morocco

Paradise found
Luckily we took previous travellers advice about booking an airport transfer - good move. The chances of finding the riad is remote with lots luck needed. Once at Karmela we were checked in by Joel, with mint tea and a full explanation of location and other information, we were then informed that we were being accommodated in the Karmela Princess riad - WOW. This was situated next door just across a narrow covered alley. The Karmela Princess was a beautiful oasis of peace and a brilliant place to escape the sensory overload of the Souks outside. Close enough to get in the thick of the city 10 mins walk away but far enough away to be a secluded spot for recuperation. The roof terrace was a fantastic respite during the day. The Karmela Princess's rooms were all individually designed and decorated to a very high standard.The bathrooms continued the individual theme, his and hers basins, hot water within seconds of turning the tap. All the staff in the riads were friendly and happy to assist in any way. Breakfast was taken in the Karmela, a great continental selection of pastries, croissants, meats and cheese, fruits, cereals eggs and pancakes were cooked to order. This Riad is just perfect for a stay in Marrakesh, Thank You Joel and Bouchra

Very welcoming.
This was a great find. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived. Having never been to an Arabic country, we were very grateful to the staff for their tips and local knowledge. The Riad was very peaceful and safe. Would recommend eating in the evening at the Riad, wonderful food! Our room was beautiful, with many Morroccan artefacts, and windows facing out to the inner courtyard, complete with orange trees and a water fountain. I highly recommend this Riad as a great place to stay in the old Medina.

We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed 3 nights here. The Riad is beautiful, it has a lovely roof terrace, very helpful staff, our room was nicely styled, however our bed was a little too hard for our comfort. It was only a 10-15 minute walk to the el-fna square, we would definitely stay here again.
