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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.
Nice driver took us to the Cottages. Difficult to find, but he was very nice.
Got in our cottage, Sylvain showed us around. Went to the pool.
Laid down, not feeling well. A/C not working. Sylvain couldn't get it to work, so we moved to another cottage.
Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.
... sitting. He double checked again, making sure he understood what I wanted: tea in the teapot, ice in the glasses. Oui. I really think he had no idea what we were doing.
Once the black tea had steeped, I slowly poured it over the ice. Voila! Iced tea. So happy. Of course, we only had enough ice for one glass, but by the time we drank that, the rest of the tea in the pot had cooled down considerably (and so had we), so it all worked out very well. The salads were amazing too.
... has air conditioning, so he got the prices for me. Marrakech to Meknes is a nearly 7-hour train ride, so I had to go with 1st Class; I just couldn't see sweltering for seven hours.
He also made an appointment for us at a spa for messages. We both woke up with migraines. Sigh. We both took Imitrex. Our appointment was for 1 pm, so we relaxed until then. Fortunately, Hunter's migraine went away. Mine improved quite a bit after I laid down for awhile.
... It took forever. Then we got our bags. Then we exchanged some dollars for dirhams (sounds like a gameshow doesn't it?). [Dirhams are equal to 10 times a Euro. Often, you can pay for things in Euros. If something is 200 Dirhams, it is equal to 20 Euros. Once I learned this it really helped me understand the cost in USD when things are priced in Dirhams.]
After that, we found our driver who was waiting for us with a sign as promised. He pointed out ...
