My wife and I spent a fantastic 4 day stay at Riad Capaldi in the heart of the medina in Marrakesh. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we knew we had made the right choice. Aidan was brilliant and had arranged everything for us, right down to the taxi to collect us from the airport the first evening. Despite the late hour, we arrived to a truly warm welcome, topped off with a brilliant meal, before retiring to our really lovely room on the first floor. Aidan helped arrange a guide to take us on a walking tour of the city, and it was definitely the best way to enjoy the sounds, the smells, the real essence of this great city (we'd really recommend it!). The staff at the Riad Capaldi were second to none. Bader (I hope that's the right name!) served us our beautiful meal on the first night, and was there to serve us our breakfast every morning with a smile, and was truly wonderful at making us feel at home. On the last day we met Mohammed, another fantastic staff member, who allowed me to practise my (very poor) French conversation, and also guided us to our taxi when we left. Throughout the whole experience Aidan was brilliant: he lent us a map to help us navigate the city (we still got lost repeatedly, but that's part of the experience!), he showed us around the souk and square on our first morning in the city, and was always there to help us at any time. As for the hotel itself, it was exactly what we wanted: authentic, an oasis in the heart of the bustling city, a beautiful roof terrace to relax in, with a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. We would also really recommend the restaurant "Le Foundouk" literally two minutes walk from the Riad Capaldi: fantastic food and great ambience. (Make sure to ask for a table outside on the roof terrace).
Marrakesh is a wonderful city and Riad Capaldi is a wonderful place from which to enjoy it. Thank you Aidan, Bader and Mohammed for helping make our stay brilliant, and one which we will fondly remember forever!
