Practical information


Seminar in Marrakech

Organize your seminars at Riad Karmela, the ideal place. A professional team is at your disposal to ensure the organization and logistics, whether a conference or a business meeting and in the best conditions. We also manage accommodation and catering according to your needs.
The Riad Karmela privatizes its big riad, in order to allow you to organize some days between friends or family. However it is necessary to book in advance.
• Reservation
Only the number of a Credit Card is required to guarantee the reservation of the stay. It will be enough for us to have the numbers of your credit card, the date of validity and the last 3 numbers on the back of the card. Your card is not charged but serves as a reservation guarantee for your stay.

Cancellation: Cancellation. If canceled or modified up to 7 days before date of arrival, no fee will be charged.In case of cancellation or late modification or no show within 6 days prior to arrival, the hotel will charge the total amount of the reservation.
• Payment method

The stay is to be paid in cash or by credit card (Visa / Mastercard) at Riad Karmela. Euros and Dirhams are accepted for the payment of your stay. Given the 5% commission on card payments in Morocco. It is also possible to make bank transfers in France or pounds sterling in England without bank charges.
• Transportation
The airport is 8 km from the city. It is strongly recommended, or even ESSENTIAL, to book a driver in advance with Riad Karmela (15 Euros up to 3 people or 20 Euros from 4 people then possibility of mini bus depending on the number) This option will guarantee you do not have to negotiate a taxi on arrival but especially to be deposited 1 minute walk from our Riad in Ben Salah Square.Taxis that you will take by yourself at the airport are likely to leave you far from the Riad, to make you pay 50% more expensive and it will be very difficult and adventurous to find the Riad. If you have to ask a local to show you the way, he will ask you ONE EURO a minute !! REGULARLY THE CUSTOMERS WHO ARRIVE BY THEIR OWN MEANS ARE VERY STRESSED IN ARRIVING !!!! Thank you for telling us if you were late. Our driver will wait for you inside the airport with a Karmela sign and the payment will be done on your bill at Riad. The planes often being late and in order not to make wait your driver too long also thank you to prevent the Riad. If you can, book or take a seat at the front of the plane because it will allow you to be in the lead for the passage to the customs which can be very long if there are several planes arriving at the same time .
• Change in Morocco
1 Euro = 11 dirhams approx.
There are notes in Morocco from 20 to 200 dirhams and coins from 0.5 to 10 dirhams.
• Taxis in Marrakech
If you do not want to use public transport (very inexpensive and reasonably well served), take taxis, but demand the meter that some forget even if this practice is becoming less common. Prices are very low (compared to France for example). Small Taxis can not leave Marrakech. At night the price is legally increased by 50% but often it is necessary to negotiate the race, especially to the exits of the discotheques. For your longer trips, out of Marrakech, you have to borrow the Grands Taxis (price to negotiate).
