Located a few doors down from the Museum of Photography in Marrakech’s bustling Medina, Riad Capaldi is perfectly situated for exploring the old part of the city. A quick stroll down the street will take you to Ben Youssef Madrasa, while the delights of the souks and Jemaa El Fna are just a short walk away.
After a day wandering the winding streets of the Medina, the riad makes for a welcome retreat, where you can enjoy a steaming cup of sweet mint tea up on the sprawling rooftop terrace. With some of the best views you’re likely to find in Marrakech, this is an impressive feature for such a petite riad, and a great place to sit and listen as the muezzin call to prayer spreads across the city’s mosques.
Downstairs, the seven rooms are split between the first and second floors, and are all decorated with Moroccan artisanal furnishings, from bejmat tiling to intricate plaster carving and hand-woven textiles. Some also come with open fireplaces, cosy seating areas and private terraces, where you can sit and watch the city by night.
