One of the bedside lamps didn't work and it took a few days and several reminders before it was fixed.
Staff were so welcoming and helpful. Each night we asked for restaurant recommendations and they were all excellent.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and looked after by wonderful people who gave us everything we needed and more. Very kind and supportive. The Place itself was beautiful. Great location and wonderful service. I could not recommend highly enough!!!!

Bed could be improved, we asked for a double bed and received two single beds pushed together...with a space in between
Location was great, just close enough to access souks and interesting streets of marrakech, far enough to relax. Staff were friendly and provided a good briefing. Breakfast was enjoyable and interiors very serene and beautiful.

Everywhere is walking. Fine for us, but if you're not so mobile, its 10 mins each time and taxi not really much of an option.
Nice and easy to all the action. Jemma el Fna only 10 minute walk. Great initial induction on the Riad and the area and places to see, do's and don'ts etc. Very friendly people.

It was like returning to a calm oasis after the busy, crowded streets of the Medina. Very relaxing and comfortable, and the staff was vey helpful. We were met promptly at the airport and well provided for.

The bed was a little hard for us!
Superbly friendly staff in this oasis of calm placed so near the attractions of Marrakech. Everyone seemed determined to make our stay a memorable one.

I think the breakfast could be better. The wifi was unreliable.
Beautiful, tranquil environment. The staff were so helpful, friendly and genuine. The decor is classic, traditional and comfortable with lots of relaxation areas. Terrace is big and sunny

Was entirely light occasionally , we had to shower dark. In addition, the heating was not working in our room so we slept very cold , the next day we were moved to a much worse room . The owner was very unfriendly to us and did not even apologize for power outages
Beautiful hotel and the staff is very kind

The Karmela arranged for transportation from the train station (keep in mind the riad is on a VERY narrow medina street so you should not expect door-to-door service....expect to walk a short distance to/from the taxi stand). Upon check-in, staff served us mint tea and pastries and reviewed the property's amenities and nearby locations. The lobby is decorated tastefully and the breakfast is nice. We didn't eat dinner there, but heard from other guests it is delicious. The rooftop at sunset is the perfect place to unwind at the end of a long day.

Beautiful riad in the heart of the medina. A true Moroccan experience. The owner was extremely helpful for restaurants/bars recommendation as well as setting up taxis and tours.
December 30, 2014
The wifi wasn't reliable, and it was a pity not to have tea and coffee facilities in the room.
The style and features of the venue and the friendliness of the staff. An excellent holiday venue, within easy walking distance of the souks and the sights.

An oasis is exactly the way to describe Karmela. It matched exactly with my preconceptions of what a beautiful riad should look and feel like, from it's friendly welcome ( the calm, welcoming and informative Bouchra- thank you Bouchra!) to it's tranquil courtyards and from it's gorgeous rooftop terraces to its delightful bedrooms and bathrooms. All perfectly renovated in the vernacular. We all loved it! The feeling of arriving at an oasis is augmented by having walked the last couple of hundred yards down increasingly narrow lanes, finally ducking under a beautiful but very low and inconspicuous door to enter this expanse of light and serenity.

Great location, very friendly staff and amazing atmosphere. I'll go back!

We loved everything! The decor, the breakfasts, the staff, location, room and the front desk staff was extremely helpful even offering meds for a troubled stomach. You won't be dissapointed if you stay here. Just make sure you have Riad pick you up from the airport otherwise you will be fodder for the "boys" whose primary vocation is shaking down tourists.

Lovely Riad with excellent staff. Bouchra and the team looked after us really well and gave us excellent advice on what to do and where to go. Food in the Riad was excellent. Lovely log fires burning on chilly nights.

Riad Karmela was a wonderful oasis of calm in the chaos of Marrekesh. The plaster details are beautiful and the service was relaxed and pampering. Loved the feel of the place.

The hammam/massage with the man was a bit shocking, a bit too shocking in fact. I would recommend a woman if you are going to have a spa treatment.
Lovely food, lovely fires. Great areas to relax in beautiful surroundings.
