We had a wonderful 3 nights at Riad Al Badia for our honeymoon in June. The service from Laurent and his team was outstanding - fast and efficient airport collection, welcome drinks and pastries and a guided walk into the Medina to help you get your bearings. We could not have asked for more. Highly recommended.

We stayed for just one night in January 2012. Laurent and the team were superb and gave us some superb suggestions for a one-day sightseeing trip round the City. The welcome we received was as you would expect at a top class hotel, nothing was a problem and they made us feel at home within minutes. They even took the... More

We spent a total of five nights here, in two different rooms. The heat was unbearable and so was the traffic and smog of the city, but getting back to the Riad every afternoon and waking up to a marvelous breakfast was just fantastic. Yes, the standard and superior rooms are a little small, but the service is absolutely first... More

We've had hard time finding this riad (as with most others in medinas) - it's rather close to the parking but the roads are not in the TomTom GPS, and spelling may be different from the web-site or staff directions. After you've found it you appreciate the location - close to Palais Bahia and Palais El Badi, just 15 mins... More

I stayed 4 nights at this very nice hotel and could confirm every single positive remark made by previous reviewers about Riad Al Badia. It is conveniently located, close to most of the city attractions, a few steps from Palais Bahia and Palais El Badi and not far from the famous Place Jemaa el fna. Its rooms are very comfortable...

From the moment we arrived we were treated like we owned the place, literally as if "this is your home" is their mantra.
