We recently stayed at Riad Badi for three nights. The room was spacious clean and quiet. Christian and Isabelle are excellent hosts. The breakfast was good. The roof top terrace is beautiful. Our first day, Christian took us to Jmaa el Fnaa, which is in close vicinity to the Riad. If we ever go back to Marrakech, we would love... More

My husband and I stayed three nights in Riad Badi and I can only repeat what other reviewers have said about the beautiful riad, the rooms and decor, the gracious service and informative tips from Christian and Isabelle and, of course, the food.

My wife and I booked a 6 night stay at Riad Badi to kick off our two-week honeymoon in Morocco. Not quite believing our luck at getting the Number 1 B&B in Marrakech at the rate we did (August is low season due to the heat), we turned up with high expectations having read many of the reviews on here...

My husband and I and our three teenage girls have just returned from 5 nights in the wonderful Riad Badi. The riad itself is just a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna so a brilliant location.

I stayed at Riad Badi as my first hotel in Marrakech in the middle of June. Even though I arrived at the riad very late like almost 1:00 am, Christian and Isabelle warmly welcomed me. I stayed at the tarquoise blue room which was very pretty and I liked. The breakfast I had the next day was the best one... More

Riad Badi truly deserves its status as number one riad on Tripadvisor! (I haven't stayed in them all - but why go anywhere else when you find such a treat, eh?!)

Isabelle and Christian are great hosts and will bend over backwards to make sure that you have everything you need, from breakfast or drinks on the terrace to organising excursions and suggesting places to visit, shop, eat or drink.

Isabelle and Christian are wonderful hosts. They are hosts in the true sense for they live in the Riad as well so they are extra careful about security. All other reviews -- about Christian's tour, good breakfasts with the home-made yoghurts and jams, location close to the main sights of the medina, the lush towels -- are all true. There... More
