A truly tranquil escape from the madness and dirt of Marrakech. We booked at Riad Badi on the recommendation of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and can honestly say that we were not in anyway disappointed. Isabelle and Christian's hospitality is second to none; from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome with tea and pastries... More

Christian and Isobel welcomed us warmly and after checking in described all the things we could see in the city. Christian even took time out to... More

My girlfriend and I spend three nights here. The riad is very beautiful and peaceful and is situated a bit outside the hectic medina, which is nice (only 10 minutes walk to the center of the medina). In my opinion, it's too hectic to sleep in the medina. Christian and Isabelle who runs the riad are extremely helpful - we... More

My husband and I booked this Riad through Tripadvisor reviews and so glad we did. We were so happy with our stay with Isabelle and Christian. They were wonderful hosts in their beautiful riad. Location is nice and quiet. It was so nice to relax on the rooftop pool after out and about in the medina.

A calm and restful riad away from the hustle and bustle of the medina. Isabelle and Christian were kind, helpful and welcoming hosts. The room was spotless with an extremely comfortable bed and good quality bed linen. The large, home-made breakfast set us up for the day. Highly recommended.
