Dar Charkia was located in a fantastic spot which travelling with 4 other girls was not only helpful on the feet (not having to walk to far) and also helpful in not getting us lost in marrakesh. We easily found our place and felt safe no matter what time we walked around. Dar Charkia was decorated and design beautifully. We... More

Beautifully renovated riad, the charm of the old house, with a modern girly twist - complete with fantastic pink sequin shower caps!! Staff were all wonderfully friendly, and the sun terrace, complete with a shower and very comfy sun longers was a great find for some afternoon sunbathing! 10 minute walk or a £1 (10 - 20 dhr) cab ride...

I spent two days searching for a beautiful Riad or hotel to celebrate my partners birthday - i was getting exceedingly frustrated and confused when i came across Amanda at HipMarrakech.com.

We loved Dar Charkia. The savoir faire, joie de vivre and lovely Dar Charkia ambience made our stay perfect. Lisa and Michael are treasures, veritable fonts of knowledge about Jemaa al Fna or anything else in Marrakech. This is the Tres Chic but still affordable place to stay.
