Dar Charkia was an absolutely wonderful oasis of calm in an unusual spot. Don't be alarmed or put off by the instructions to find it, it's so worth it when you get inside and the unusual walk to it was charming once you became familiar with it. The service levels were off the scale and the staff ( well selected...

Quite centrally located, this is a beautiful riad you won't regret staying in. Breakfast in particular was excellent, and the room we stayed in was very comfortable and well appointed. The hosts are friendly - and extraordinarily helpful!

The riad is beautiful and in the perfect location. Easy to find and such an oasis from the medina, especially on a hot summer day. The staff is very helpful and takes care of your every need while you are in Marrakech. Would recommend this riad for groups of all types!

This was a return trip to this magical riad, and I was not disappointed - it was as wonderful as ever. It's perfectly situated in the medina, with walking access to all places of interest, the Majorelle Gardens, and of course, great shopping. The staff were absolutely wonderful. On the last night we had supper at the riad, and it...

Wow! this just sums it all up. From the initial interaction making the booking to the departure many months later. On arrival we were treated to a tea and briefing "session" by Simira. All the do's and do nots and the things we may experience in the Souks and Market Square. Our room (suite) was the most luscious oasis we...

Our stay at Dar Charkia could not have been better. All the staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The riad is in a great central location, yet is nice and quiet as soon as you step through the front door. It is a lovely environment, very nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and excellent attention to detail. Dinner and breakfast both...

I stayed here for three nights in early June. The location is very good because it's easy to find, and it's 10-15 minutes walking distance from all the major sites. My friend and I had the good fortune of spending time with one of the owners, Michael, who is a great host and a very interesting and affable person. Even...

Dar Charkia is absolutely a second home. A great location, staff, and amazing owners if you get the chance to meet them. The experience of having Moroccan ladies preparing your breakfast in the morning and a great warm hospitality is not something that you can find in hotels. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed and the Riad...
