Palais Riad Calipau Marrakech

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2016

I had some concerns about staying in the smaller lower floor rooms. We stayed for one night before heading to the Sahara, and then 3 more nights afterwards. On both stays the staff was charming, and we got some *very* nice rooms, probably as we were 3 people and had requested bigger rooms. In fact the longer stay, we were given a guhe room, with a small sitting area, and a semi-separate bedroom for our son. The only issue I could recall, was with other guests, as riads have courtyards by definition, and if a couple of young girls comes in at midnight speaking loundy after partying, well... you can hear everything, and that's what happened to us, until someone went down to speak to then, and they finally let everyone else sleep. The other good thing, is that you are not located in the noisy Medina, but farther away, which is perfect. I'm not sure I would like to be in the Medina for too long... Internet os OK only.

Room Tip: Top rooms are much better, pay extra if you have to

One of the best places we've been to.
Felt like home, great place, amazing and very helpful staff, great room, good breakfast, good location in the center of the old town, close to most attractions. Couldn't ask for more.
Definitely recommended

We were 3 ladies sharing a room for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. If you want a to stay in a traditional Riad then book here. The staff are very friendly, we were given a warm welcome by Selma and Abdul, we had arrived early and we're able to enjoy the riad's facilities whilst our room was being prepared. We were given mint tea with some lovely traditional biscuits then enjoyed some welcome sunshine on the roof terrace.

The hotel is set within the medina walls in a narrow street. It's easy walking distance to the main square. If you don't fancy walking Selma will book a taxi for you, she'll book trips and restaurants anything you need just ask.
Breakfast is traditional moroccan (I think ) the fresh orange juice is divine.
Isham the barman is very obliging he wouldn't tell us what time he closed the bar, it was open as long as we wanted it open.

We stayed here for our last night in the city after returning from a tour to Erg Chebbi. This riad is perfect! We had arranged for our tour company to drop us off after the tour, but the driver was unable to do so due to the location of this place. We were nervous about how we would find this riad in an unfamiliar city and asked our driver to call the hotel. The hotel staff came to the outside point where the car was and walked us to the hotel himself, helping us carry bags and leading the way. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL. Our room was exactly how I would picture a 5 star riad, and we enjoyed looking over the pool. The food was pricey, but delicious. After being out in the sand and on the road for the tour, this was the perfect retreat to come back to. The bathroom was huge, the closet was huge, the beds were very comfortable, and the atmosphere was simply beautiful. The service from picking us up from the car to serving us dinner late evening to arranging a taxi for us to get to the airport early the next morning was truly 5-star service. We stayed on the ground floor and it was pretty loud with the music by the pool. We loved the atmosphere of that, but it is something to note if you're not interested in hearing music play later at night.We would gladly stay here again!

We stayed here in Jan 8-12 and stayed in the superior suite which was lovely and very welcoming. On arrival Selma the nice lady who greeted us was warm and very accommodating. This was our first time in Morocco and Marrakesh was our first insight. Before you book a hotel you need to look at Riad's and establish what you from a hotel or a Riad.
The inside, decoration & layout was nice and made you feel that little more relaxed. All the staff are great and speak enough English to get buy. Breakfast is typical Moroccan and a welcome break from English breakfasts. There is a TV in the room but very few channels in English so no news which is pretty basic but essential to keep up to date with affairs. No tea making facilities in room but downstairs is a kitchen if you need anything.
This place is lovely and i would stay again. Thank Selma for making our first time stay a true memory!!

We had to stay here as our a original Riad had a problem. The staff were good. However! We decided to turn in early at 21:30 as we had a 05:00 start that morning. Next door were four teenage girls who were very loud, playing music on phones and singing along (badly) and one could not talk only shout! Anyway they went out to eat about 22:00 so we went to sleep. Awoke at about 11:30, they were back from eating and now in there room getting louder and louder, one guest asked them to turn it down a bit which they did for about a minute. By 01:00 I had had enough and complained to to the night staff who did go to their room but was obviously completely out of his depth. The noise got louder until 01:30, then they went out!! Needless to say it started again at 04:30 when they came back in. Select the next day!
