Thanks very much Isabelle and Christian and your two wonderful ladies for making us so welcome. We had an amazing time; the food was wonderful and Christian's guided walk around the main square proved invaluable. You truly deserve to be Number 1. Anne and Robin

Marrakesh was my first city in Morocco and I was a little anxious about staying in the Medina. On arrival at Riad Badi all my concerns disappeared as Christian and Isabelle made us very welcome into their lovely Riad. Our room was very comfortable and lovely with red rose petals sprinkled on the bed !! After a mint tea and... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at Riad Badi.

As most other reviews have said many times over, a lovely place to stay - made better by the owners Isabelle and Christian's help and guidance - an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech- thankyou.

We spent 3 nights in the Riad on an all-girls trip. We chose the Riad as it was ranked number 1 in tripadvisor, and we must say it's a well-deserved place. The centrally located Riad is very clean, and well maintained. Towels were changed everyday. Breakfast varied every morning. We did not get the chance to try having dinner in... More

We recently spent 4 nights at Riad Badi based on the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor. Every review is true and it is difficult to add anything to what has been said many times before.

There are so many riads to choose from in Marrakech that it can be overwhelming. Looking at the trip advisor ratings before we chose, this one almost seemed too good to be true but in fact the universally high ratings were entirely justified. Nicely located an interesting few minutes walk from Jemaa el-Fna, the room we stayed in (hibiscus) was... More

As most others, we stayed here on good Trip Advisor ratings and the recommendations couldn't have been more justified. Isabelle and Christian made us feel so at home and supported in what can be a very chaotic city. The Riad was an oasis of calm, comfort and delicious food. We were there to do the half marathon, and they prepared... More

We stayed 2 nights at Riad Badi in Marrakech. Isabelle and Christian were welcoming, friendly and very helpful hosts. The riad is a tranquil oasis in a chaotic city, yet situated close enough so you can easily walk to all the main sites. Our room (Cannelle) was lovely, well appointed, well lit, spotless, great bed and linens, and had a... More

We booked Riad Badi based on the outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor. Our stay at Riad Badi far surpassed those positive ratings. We would gladly give owners Christian and Isabelle 6 stars!
