    Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Charkia Marrakech

    Dar Charkia - A Great Place to Stay!


    We have just returned from a weekend in Marrakech. We booked Dar Charkia direct with the very excellent manager, Cyrus, and took the whole place as we were a group of 10.

    We had been in touch long before the trip and were assured that all the activities we had selected were in put in place by Cyrus before arrival. This included private transfers from the airport; a superb local restaurant (L'Abyssin - out of town but stunning and well worth the eccentric trip to get there!) and a day in 4x4's in the Atlas mountains. Superb!

    The food in the Dar was excellent with full Moroccan fare very nicely presented - and some suprisingly good local wines too. The staff were charming and really looked after us very well.

    The rooms were very clean and comfortable and well decorated - each room having it's own distinct character. The roof terrace is absolutely lovely - as is the inner court with its beautifully lit pool.

    I have seen many Riads in Marrakech but few equal Dar Charkia which has a perfect mixture of old-world charm and modern convenience. Excellent! We'll be back!

    Great Place to stay


    Stayed at this beautiful Riad for 4 nights in mrach, lovely place with great staff, who are extremely helpful. They give you a nice breakfast in the morning and can cook lunch and dinner if you need. The rooms are really nice but next time i would avoid the room on the ground floor and try and get the first floor suite. The riad is in a really good location in the medina and is a very short walk to the souks. There are some nice restauraunts around but the choice for vegetarians is limited. I would definately go back.

    Peaceful Haven


    Dar Charkia is a privately owned riad in the heart of the Medina. Although hidden away in a back street, it is close to all of the main activities and within walking distance of the souq and square. On arrival, we were welcomed by Mohammed with a glass of wine and shown to our comfortable room on the first floor. Breakfast's were taken on the sunny roof terrace with a view across the city to the distant Atlas mountains. If we wanted to eat in for lunch or dinner, the order was taken at breakfast. Dinner was served in a room just off the inner courtyard that forms the centre of this delighful riad. The food was bought from the market that day and freshly cooked. We had a really comfortable and enjoyable stay at Dar Charkia. The staff were all very friendly and spoke understandable English. The inner pool is small and not very warm, but everything else was perfect.

    Ein großartiges Hotel


    Ich habe im März vier Tag ein diesem wunderschönen Riad verbracht. Es ist ein reizendes Hotel mit tollem Personal, alle sind extrem hilfsbereit. Morgens bekommt man ein schönes Frühstück und wenn man möchte, dann kann man sich auch Mittag- oder Abendessen zubereiten lassen.

    Die Zimmer sind wirklich schön aber bein nächsten Mal würde ich die Zimmer im Erdgeschoss vermeiden und mir ein Zimmer im 1. Stock nehmen. Die Lage des Riads zur Medina ist wirklich gut und bis zu den Souks geht man nur ein paar Schritte. Es gibt einige schöne Restaurants in der Gegend aber die Möglichkeiten für Vegetarier sind eingeschränkt. Ich würde hier auf jeden Fall wieder einen Urlaub verbringen.

    Just fantastic!!


    Stayed here for three nights with my best friend and really can't rate the place highly enough. Stunning surroundings, couldn't be easier to find, centrally located and attentive staff - the list goes on and on. Had some excellent advice from Madeline and Cyrus on where to eat, drink, taxi drivers and even where to have a hammam - which was blissful! Would also thoroughly recommend taking up the offer of having a massage in your room - simply sublime! Only way to really appreciate it is to go there - certainly know I'll be back!

    Un riad intimiste


    Quelques chambres, un patio intime et riche (fontaine, oranger, petit bassin pour se baigner, niches pour être au calme), une terrasse agréable (avec monte-charge pour le breakfast), une décoration mêlant orient et occident, à quelques pas de la place El Jaama.

    Vraiment très agréable. Un peu cher.

    Dar Charkia is a brilliant place to stay


    Excellent place to stay. Beautiful inside and very peaceful. The staff can't do enough for you and you are treated like a king. We went for four nights as a birthday present from me to my wife.

    Marrakech is a mad mad place, everyone should visit it though because the people are generally wonderful. It is amazing. You must stay in the medina if you really want a feel of the place.

    Wonderful Riad Great Location


    An amazing place, very well decorated, with fantastic staff and a very helpful manager, Cyrus. He is able to book all activities you may fancy, from a sauna to a nice restaurant. The riad is located close to the Souks, but also to a taxi rank, to nice restaurants (Dar Marjana and Dar Mocha) and to a great shop on 188 Dar el Bacha.

    It is also good for kids- has lots of playing space and the staff is friendly to them.

    Marina Lains

    Great location, stylish restful interior


    We spent 3 days at Dar Charkia in early October and would highly recommend it. It's in a great location in the old town near the Souks, easy to find your way back to from the main road nearby (plenty of riads are not!) and within short walking distance of a couple of excellent restaurants. The interior is modern and stylish and finished to a high standard.

    Dar Charkia



    Simply stunning Riad. Wonderful rooms and great service. what a lovely way to be introduced to Marrakech. I really kind rate this place highly enough.

    Marrakech markets and tannery

    A travel blog entry by janetsblog on Aug 07, 2015

    Up and early breakfast at 8am. We are heading to the local Markets and Tannery in Medina, or "Old Marrakech" today and want to get there early and beat the heat. The main Market was setting up in the Market Square as we arrived (9.40am). We headed off down narrow streets with shop fronts mostly closed. The further we went the narrower the streets became and eventually we asked a local about the Tannery and its whereabouts. He said he could take us (for a small ...

    ... t see all of it. There is a music festival here right now and that is one of the sites for it so they had things set of in some parts. But it was still worth the walk. We took a much shorter walk through the city, passing the royal palace, to get back to our hostel. We made a quick stop and then were off to the beach. Janine and I already had blisters which is crazy since we've done so much walking and haven't ...

    ... Our train to Marrakech from Casablanca was 2nd class (and second rate) - compartments were pretty full and we had to scour for our seats. Finally found 2 in a compartment which had a broken light (about a third of 2nd class) so we sat in complete darkness once the sun set (for half of the 3 1/2 hour journey). Was also advised to bargain for our taxi fare to the medina in Marrakech (our riad was located just inside) - not to go above MAD50 (A$7). ...
