The Riad Karmela, 8 mn from Djemaa El Fnaa, is located right in the heart of the old Medina, only 2 minutes walk from the entrance of the Souks (market) and also 2 minutes from the Museum of Marrakech and the Medersa Ben Youssef. You will appreciate the calm and the elegance of that large Riad which has just been renovated. Enjoy a plunge pool in the Patio in the shadow of the Orange trees or relax in the traditional hamam after an exciting shopping day in the Souks.
There is also a large terrace with a solarium and a lounge area and you can have a dip in the terrace Jacuzzi in the warm days. You will enjoy the view on the Atlas Mountains or all around the Riad, the roofs of the old Medina of Marrakech. (Unfortunately due to the configuration of the Riad and for safety reason, kids are not allowed under 4 )
The 19 Bedrooms The Riad Karmela offers eight bedrooms (double beds or two single beds), nine Junior Suites nicely decorated (one has also a private balcony). If you travel with your family or with friends why not stay in one of the two apartments. They both have separate bedrooms and can both accommodate up to 5 people. The hotel also offers free breakfast to it's guests.
Central of Marrakech Medina.
Marrakech Airport is 8Km away but hotel HIGHLY recommend to pre-order airport transfer at booking process as it is very difficult to find the riad first time. Also Airport taxis are not reliable.
The souks are only 2 min walks so you can have permanent access to shops and local handicrafts. Hotel is located in the center of an authentic city.

We had a wonderful weekend at Riad Karmela. It's not the swankiest hotel imaginable but it's perfectly clean, well-furnished and in an excellent location, a 10 minute walk from the main square. The riad also featured an extremely friendly staff
and a well appointed breakfast. I highly recommend it.
