I have just returned with my beloved from my 2nd trip to Marrakech and the staff at the Palais Calipau made this a trip to remember. This well located Riad has very [palatial] good sized rooms, the atmosphere was very tranquil and i never got tired of the sound of the birds and the pool and not much else. You... More

Away from the busy medina, but close to many attractions and with a short walk to Jamaa el Fna, this riad is a wonderful surprise at your first step in. Wonderful welcoming and excellent support on the departure with a tea with mint at 5.30am!!

I have just returned from a fantastic stay at this Riad in the Kasbah area of Marrakech. It's quite simply a hidden gem and a perfect peaceful calm oasis in what is a very busy place! We were two female travellers and I have to say we felt very safe and well looked after at the Palais Calipau. The housekeeper... More

Perfect position in the Kasbah area of the old city, quite but close enough to walk into the main square and the hassle and bustle of the souks and restaurants. When you walk through the black door it opens up to a beautiful oasis of a traditional Moroccan Riad,the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and will go out there... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this riad from the start of April 2015 for a week. The Riad is absolutely beautiful and is honestly the most lovely place I have ever stayed. However, I chose to ignore negative reviews before I booked which was a huge mistake. I thought we would not get a room on the bottom floor,... More

My partner booked for us to stay at this riad for 3 nights during April 2015. We were impressed from the outset with the service - our flight to Marrakech landed 2 hours late however the riad spoke to our taxi driver (booked through the riad via email prior to arrival) and arranged for him to wait for us at...

Palais Calipau is a pleasant, restful riad in a central location in the Kasbah area of Marrakesh. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a safe, there is always hot water, free wifi, plenty of lounging areas and helpful staff. Breakfast consists of well cooked eggs (as in cooked for a long time!), toast, fresh orange juice, tea and coffee.... More

We booked this ryad (or riad) with Expedia as a hotel & flight deal at the beginning of October 2014. When we looked at the photos on the ryad's website and saw plenty of good reviews about this ryad, we simply couldn't believe how lucky we were to find this ryad at such a good price (4 nights + easyJet...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here from 23rd Feb to the 28th Feb this year as a christmas present to me. We arrived and while waiting for our room key we were given biscuits and mint tea and given a map of the area and told best places to visit during our stay. The room was huge, gorgeous! You have...

We stayed here for few nights. As like most riads you wouldnt know it was there from outside. Once inside it has internal court yard with pool. Breakfast and meals served here. Ate here first night on arrival. It is not far from centre...took us a while to get our bearings. We thought it was to a good standard.
