We stayed for 4 nights in the Valentin suite at Riad Charlott' during late August, and found it to be a wonderful oasis of calm in amongst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
Jean Pierre and his staff couldn't be more attentive to your every need and whim, from providing a refreshing mint tea and light snack following an early arrival to booking trips and making restaurant reservations... and of course providing their infamous hand drawn map to aid your adventures to/from the riad!
The riad took 4 years to complete and every ounce of hard work is visible in a beautiful, well thought out end product. The most specatular part of it was the fabulous roof terrace, where we spent each night watching the sunset over the Medina.
Also, it's located less than a 10 minute walk to the main square through the spice market and Souks, and a there's a lovely restaurant - Le Foundouk - a couple of minutes walk away which is pricey but does a mouthwatering seafood pastilla.
If you fancy a day of relaxation away from the mayhem of the Medina, then ask Jean Pierre to arrange a visit to Manzil la Torture - for approx £25 per person you can laze in their manicured gardens on a canopied double sun lounger by a 40m infinity swimming pool from 10am to 8pm, and a 3-course lunch is included in the price.
I would recommend Riad Charlott' to anyone looking to experience the real Marrakech, rather than stay in a large resort style hotel. Word of advice though - make sure you have cash to pay for the balance of your stay, as their card connection can be temparmental and unreliable due to the riad being buried with the walls of the Medina!
