Being at Riad Badi is like staying with family friends - with a warm welcome, great taste in furnishings, and epic breakfasts. Christian's guided tour of the Medina was of great help - especially tips on where to eat and what to visit, The location of the Riad made it easy to explore the bustling Souks and yet still gave...

This Riad was a home away from home. The rooms were beautiful and luxurious and there were lots of comfy spaces to relax and unwind.

This Riad is ideally located for the main tourist attractions in the city, being in the Medina next to the Badia Palace and a few minutes walk from the Jamaa el Fna.

We can only reiterate all the other positive comments for this well run, comfortable, special riad in the heart of Marrakesh. We were travelling with our 4 year old which for us meant we spent a bit more time at your accommodation than we would normally due to the need for some relaxation time.
