We had no bad experiences along our stay at Chalymar.
Staff: Ibrahim took café of us amazingly, making our stay throughout the week perfecto. Proximity: Riad Chalymar is located near the Jma el Fna square (3 minutes on foot), which allows you to begin your activities from the most important point of Marrakesh. Services: Riad Chalymar is cozy and its service was just great. Rooms completely tidy and well-organized.
Thank you to Ibrahim, you were a great host and took care even when we got sick! Thanks a lot!!
The bathroom didn't have a door or even a curtain separating it from the bedroom. We also didn't expect to have to pay for tea within the riad but the price was at least not exhorbitant.
Though tucked away in a little alley, once we got our bearings, we found the riad easy to find, being very close to Djma el-Fna. The staff was helpful and the food was delicious. Loved the comfortable outdoor lounging areas.
Beautiful interior, nice rooftop terrace and good location near Jemaa el Fna square. Hot water in the shower, clean room and heater/aircon. Very good for the price.
On approach the Riad was down a few dark alleys but when the door opened it was like a palace. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but included in the price so very cheap.
Don't go to one of the recommended excursions. We did one and it was very disappointing. Instead of hiking in the Atlas mountains we were brought from shop to shop where we had to sit and wait for hours. We wasted a whole day and that's a real pity if you only have a few days in this wonderful city!
The room was charming and the breakfast was really superb! Fresh pancakes, fruit, yoghurt, jus d'orange and more. Nice staff, they were very helpful.
Credit machine would not work had to go out and find cash machine to check out. No help getting a taxi No windows in room Not for solo female traveler
Good wifi Quiet
Room smelled of a lot like smoke and perfume/air freshener when we entered the room.
Warm and helpful hosts, excellent breakfast, giant bathtub in the room, nice premises.
The staff and the place are lovely, very very very clean, comfortable, very close to the big square an easy to arrive. It is quiet and you can even hear some birds in the morning. The terrace is great too. The rooms are big and they have air conditioner/heater and extra blankets in case you need. We will be back to Ryand Chalymar!!
I arrived after 11:00 p.m. and had trouble finding Riad Chalymar in the Medina in the dark. [It would be easier during the day.] When I finally found it, I was told there was a "problem with the rooms" and escorted to the nearby Riad Balkisse. I learned the next day that both are owned by the same family. The review above is for the Riad Balkisse, since I never saw Riad Chalymar. I paid the same price, but I do not appreciate being bumped to another place. I also received a room right off the lobby/breakfast room, which was noisy. Not a positive introduction.
Trouble finding the riad from the main road.
You have to get through a small alley which you probably won't find on your own. At first it looks a bit unsafe and dark at night, but the more you walk through it, the more you'll see the charm of it. Staff was always very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very tasty.
Nothing at all!!
The suite was really big and the personal was amazing! The best was dinner cooked by the crew itself! Location couldn't be better
The staff was notably the best part of the Riad. They will help you with any problem and give you quality counseling to prepare you for days of negotiating prices. The rooms were clean and spacious. We would book here again. Good luck finding the place though it is down a maze of streets that is not on google maps. best to call ahead and arrange for the receptionist to meet you.
The staff is amazing. We had a delicious breakfast everyday. The location is great! Definitely worth a visit!
The approach through the alley to the riad.
Everything. Beautiful comfortable ant the staff could not have been kinder. So relaxed and friendly.
Everything. from the welcome, the tajine, the early breakfast, the taxi arrangements. splendid!
The dark and winding alley route to the riad took some getting used to. We were woken from our sleep a couple of times by late arrivals and loud chatting in the building's traditional central courtyard.
The interior was lovely, the terrace great for breakfast or evening aperitif, the food good and the staff helpful.
Staff were all very nice and helpful specially Aziz.The rooms were comfortable and clean. location is good once you have found it, best to get them to pick you up from airport. good breakfast.
Had to walk down a long, dark ally to get to the Riad. Don't book the ground floor room, it's very noisy there. Because of guests coming & going at all hours & staff chatting.
Close main square, without the noise. The Riad is very clean. Excellent breakfasts & evening meal are by request. Nice sunny roof garden. Could do with some shade though. Staff are very helpful.
Friendly, well located, charming
no Wi-Fi there is some unpleasant smell in the room.
Although most riads are located in small, narrow alleys, it was a bit disconcerting to travel back to the riad at night. A torch/flashlight is definitely a necessary & trusty item to pack with you! Their wifi signal only works on the main floor and not in the rooms or terrace. I would suggest the property increases the bandwidth of their network ASAP.
The staff at Riad Chalymar is truly THE BEST! They're so welcoming, you immediately feel as though you're simply visiting family. Aziz, Touira & Meleeka are so attentive to all their guests needs. Breakfast was always enjoyable & served where ever our group requested - which was always the sunny rooftop terrace. Naturally. Our rooms were clean & well appointed. When we left for the day, the staff took things a step further and even packed away clothes & other items that cluttered the space. How awesome is that?!
Abdou was welcoming, helpful and accommodating. He really made our stay in Marrakech much more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this riad.
We would recommend this ryad to anyone visiting Marrakech. The location is ideal, 2 minutes from Jemaa e Fnaa, which is only 5 minutes away from the centre, Guéliz. These are two people made to host guests. Abdu is very helpful with ideas and suggestions on where to go and eat, while Youssef has many interesting and amusing stories. You arrive as strangers and leave as friends. Abdu and Youssef are fantastic.
