The riad was stunning and far exceeded our expectations. We had lovely cups of mint tea & Moroccan pastries and the breakfasts each morning were a real treat. We have some great photos to remember the holiday by, especially the storks on the palace walls next door. We also very much appreciated all the help & advice you gave us... More

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Riad Badi is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the "madness that is Marrakesh"... The Riad itself is gorgeous and beautifully appointed and decorated, with amazing bathrooms and amenities, fantastic food and fantastic hosts. My husband and I spent 4 nights is early July - admittedly NOT the best time... More

Absolutely loved our 6 night stay at Riad Badi. The location is good - situated away from the noise and bustle but still less than 10 minutes walk from Jma el Fna Square. The riad itself is tastefully decorated, large and airey. The breakfast is delicious and we looked forward to it every day. The roof terrace is a great... More

We were picked up as promised at the really nice airport in Marrakech by a friendly driver! Once we arrived in the old town he walked us down many unmarked winding dirt alleyways and we arrived at a beautiful wooden door! All the while we are wondering how will we ever find our way back? The door opened and we... More

Riad Badi was the perfect place to stay in Marrakesh. Isabelle and Christian were amazing hosts, and took care of our every need. The Riad itself is just a 5 minute walk from all the major sites in the Medina, but it couldn’t seem further from the hustle and bustle of the streets. We loved our yummy breakfasts every morning...

In the busiest place in the whole world Isabella and Christian have managed to create a tranquil paradise of Moroccan beauty. First things first. There was only one negative thing about this trip.

We have just returned from our first trip to Marrakesh. We chose our accommodation carefully so that we had an authentic feel of the city and its people. We found the riad tucked away from the hubbub of the main square but a short stroll away from all the noise and chaos that is Marrakesh! Our room was delightful, comfortable... More
