We booked in for two nights, then got upgraded for free. Staff lovely and helpful, breakfast really nice, and location perfect for Jamaa El Fna. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Breakfast was pretty limited, and at times, there was a wait to be served. My particular room was not all that clean, and the drain in the tub took forever to drain. Also, hot water was hard to come by.
The location of the riad is convenient, as it is only about 5-8 minutes walk from the square. The staff were excellent, and one of them went out of his way to make us dinner by the hot tub one night. Wifi is available all through out, though spotty in some areas.

Our room was very small. Just enough room for a bed. Although delightfully decorated we could have done with a little more space. Next time we will request a larger room. The Wi Fi worked intermittently which was very frustrating as we were relying on the internet to locate restaurants, cafes & places of interest.
The Riad was small & compact but centrally located. Tastefully decorated in traditional themes but with modern amenities the bedrooms (& communal spaces) were havens for peace & relaxation. The breakfast terrace afforded views over the Medina & was a lovely place to start the day. Above all the staff were fantastic. Very helpful & accommodating. I cannot praise them enough.We would definitely stay here again & we don't write this too often !!!

Access to the riad is via a fairly dingy alley (but this would be true of nearly all riads in Marrakech). Wifi occasionally temperamental. Bathroom could do with some tlc.
Very nice house in convenient position in the Medina. Reasonably spacious bedroom and bathroom. Excellent breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful.
February 10, 2015
The room and facilities were lovely, and the terrace and hot tub were great for relaxing and watching the sun set. Short walk into the souks - although this riad is situated down a few narrow alleyways, everyone was incredibly friendly and we felt safe wandering to and from the riad at all times of day and night.

A bit difficult to find tucked away in an alley but likely most places in the Medina are similar.
Staff was lovely and helpful, hotel was clean and allowed us to stay for late checkout.

Nothing apart from the reality of the return journey home
Riad was home from home. Right from the start all the staff couldn't do enough and were so hospitable. Fouzia was fab in sharing her vast knowledge to help us. Nothing was too much trouble. Karim was so attentive really excelling in making our stay as special as he could and never too far away to call on. The owner was also welcoming which was lovely and invited us to a complimentary dinner as well as a suite upgrade. Food was exceptional, so clean an well maintained. Jacuzzi was just the thing after a hard day bartering at the souks. Really can't find a fault. Would recommend highly. Tip. Eat breakfast on the rooftop - not too miss.

Nothing. This was one of more expensive riad choices, but it was worth every single cent.
Stayed in the king suite (first night of honeymoon, worth the splurge) and I would change absolutely nothing about our choice. The staff was incredible and welcoming, the riad was gorgeous, comfortable and well located, and they suggested a dinner for us that was a highlight of the trip (Al Fassia... Go!!). Just steps away from the main square in Marrakech, would absolutely stay again if we make it back to this part of the world.

Staff were nice and helpful. This is the best riad in the medina, very clean, quiet and peaceful (I stayed 4 riads in this trip)
October 7, 2014
I didn't like the breakfast (only bread and tea!) I had to ask for eggs. The location because taxis could not come to the narrow streets (also bad for club purposes). Wifi is completely down at night without any receptionist in sight
Liked the location, because it was close to the square. Cleanliness. I liked that it had a terrace with a hot tub.

The dark greys and browns of the inside of the Riad; design-wise, this lacks the light and attention to detail of my favourite Roads.
Huge top-floor room, central location, fabulous roof terrace.
September 14, 2014
Some of the other rooms looked slightly small - which may have been what we initially booked. However, we were upgraded to an amazing suite, with a huge bed and bathroom and therefore did not experience the potentially smaller room. Having to leave the Riad was our main issue!
After a very long day travelling we arrived late at the Riad and were greeted by Sayeed (one of the workers). Although we struggled to speak Arabic and French we managed to communicate as best as we could. Sayeed was so very helpful and was always smiling. He took us to our room, which appeared much bigger and superior than what we thought we had booked. He made sure we were taken care of at all times and we thoroughly enjoyed his presence. We will miss his laughter and smiling!! The following day we then greeted by who we think was the manager (I think her name was Fusra - sorry if this is wrong). She was extremely helpful and informed us that we were given a free room upgrade since it was our first time in Marrakesh. She gave us lots of information regarding things to do and prices to pay etc. We had lunch at the Riad one day which was made by Fusra - it was one of the best meals we had ever tasted. Definitely allow her to cook for you at least once! Our room was huge with a massive bed and a wonderful bathroom. The whole Riad was very clean and the spa on the roof was so refreshing and you can relax on the luxurious sun loungers. We met the owner on our third and final day, who was keen to make sure our stay was good and provided us with information regrading Marrakesh and the Riad. The staff at this Riad are truly wonderful people. It is so relaxed and peaceful yet so close to the main square (5 minute walk). The place is clean and the hot tub is refreshing after lying in the sun on the sun loungers. Our room was amazing and I wish we could have stayed in the Riad for longer! You can also get massages in your room or go to the small hammam for a traditional experience! Thank you all for a great stay and wonderful experience!! You made it special!!

The staff are delightful and attentive. The rooms are very good, the wifi reliable and fast, the breakfast on the roof terrace was memorable. We were given a room upgrade after the first night, which was very welcome. The location is very quiet but only a few minutes' walk from the main square and restaurants. We would certainly recommend Riad Carllian.

Great location, wonderful food, and great rooms. A perfect environment and atmosphere. The staffs attitude about everything was "as you like it."
August 19, 2014
Close to main square but as taxi's are not allowed to enter square in evening, we had to walk all the way from taxi stand (outside of square) to riad...
Ambience Staff Attitude, always willing to help. Massage and Hamam Helpful in arranging excursions

Need an additional English speaker perhaps.
Great location, nice staff.

The room is very good, but the privacy is minor; it is quite difficult to have the window open without exposing the whole room.
The team and the location are excelent.

Our first trip to Marrkesch. Arriving just before midnight in our RIAD Carllian. The taxi drops you just in front of old city/Medina, where a suitcase carrier looking like a monk takes your luggage and guides you through the first part of the Medina labyrinth. We had a lovely welcome, although it was very late at night. The Riad Carllian really imprest us from the first moment by the kindness of their service people as well as from the inner architecture. We had a wonderful suite on the last floor of the Riad which was very clean, spacy and light. The bed was comfortable to sleep in and the shower had a good water rinse. Breakfast on the roof top was amazing with a beautiful view to the Atlas mountains. The food for breakfast was traditional with continental European touch – very delicious. The RIAD even asked an english speaking woman, her name was Fouzia, to work during the days we stayed in the RIAD as we were not so fluent in the French language. Fouzia was of great help for us while planning our three days and always translated into French when necessary. She and also the general manager, Franck, made our stay outstanding. We have already recommended this RIAD and will always do!
