      Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Charkia Marrakech

      Dar Charkia - A Great Place to Stay!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Great location, stylish restful interior

      from

      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.

      Wow.

      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.

I am so pleased to date that Eugene hasn't got the plague but he brought his vitamins which he has taken religiously so am wondering if that is the difference. ( Eliza ......I know what you're thinking!) But one day we ventured into Jardin Majorelle. There is a connection here with Nancy in France, Kay as I know it is one of your favourite places. ...

      ... It was a beautiful sight in the moonlight! We climbed aboard, lurched upright and swayed off into the sands. Silence (apart from my camel, Jimmy, who munched on something all the way out) constellations, and the peaks and valleys of the dunes passing beneath us like a sea-swell. When we started seeing shooting stars, things were getting ridiculous! At the foot of a high dune, we de-camelled and climbed by foot. In the distance we heard the squawks and giggling of a Japanese ...
