Joël, the owner of Riad Karmela Princesse, has more than 25 years of working as a hotel professional in Europe. This boutique hotel experience has given him first-hand knowledge of what a discerning traveller is really looking for and he now owns a few charming riads within the Marrakech Medina.
Riad Karmela Princesse is a modern adaptation of an authentic riad highlighting traditional Moroccan methods and materials including the wood (Moucharabieh), Fes Zellige tiles, hand hammered copper, woven wool (Boucharouite rugs), taddelakt lime plaster and cement tiles. Families with children over the age of 4 only are accepted due to safety reasons.
The experienced team speak a number of languages including French, English, Spanish, German and can help advise and organise your stay in Marrakech.
Breakfast and dinners are served on the main patio during the winter and on the terraces during the summer months. A three-course menu of modern Moroccan dishes is prepared by Chef Salah and you can nip across the road to the restaurant at Riad Karmela for traditional Moroccan cuisine, known to be one of the best riad restaurants in Marrakech.
The 10 non-smoking rooms and suites at Riad Karmela Princesse come in all shapes and colours. They all feature underfloor heating, air-conditioning, complimentary water and WiFi and some have double basins in the bathrooms. Room service is available throughout your stay.
Just opposite is sister property Riad Karmela, which has a bar, restaurant and a menu of beauty treatments including a traditional Moroccan hammam and sauna. Guests of Riad Karmela Princesse can wander across the road and use all of these facilities during their stay.
The Djemma el-Fna Square is less than 10 minutes walk and the Majorelle Gardens are just 10 minutes by taxi. If making a trip here (recommended) take time to take a peak in 33 Rue Majorelle, the shop opposite the entrance, it has a carefully curated selection of goods from local and up-and-coming designers that you'll want to take home.
How to get there
The best way to arrive at the riad is to arrange a taxi through the hotel to and from the airport as access to the riad is difficult. Airport transfer is €15 each way.
Marrakech airport is 20 minutes away by taxi.
