We had a very enjoyable time at Riad Badi. Isabelle and Christian are excellent hosts and the breakfast was different every day and kept us going until a lunchtime snack from a stree stall. Riad Badi is in a very good location - it is at the edge of the old town so you are part of the old town... More

Re reading some of these most recent reviews there's little I can add! We were enchanted with the comfort and style of our accomodation and 10/10,no... 100/100 friendly welcome from our charming hosts.

Isabelle and Christian are wonderful hosts. He in particular was quite knowledgable and we would recommend his 'orientations' around the Souk! Christian helped us arrange transportation during our first visit there in December and was flexible when we had to arrive late on a last minute return visit later in January '13. On our first visit, we enjoyed dinner on... More

we had an amazing time at the Riad Badi, perfectly positioned in the old town Marrachech. the owners did everything they could, to make our stay as perfect as possible, both in the Riad and giving advise on where to visit. don't stay in a faceless hotel, use the Riiad Badi for 5 star treatment.

This is my first ever review as I was so impressed with the level of service in Riad Badi.

So glad we had the great opportunity to stay at Riad Badi and get to meet Isabelle and Christiane. First of all, the location of the riad is great. It is very quiet without any traffic noise, yet only about 10 minutes away from the heart of the Old Medina, where all the actions and sights are. The riad and... More

I've been using TripAdvisor for a while to help decide on places to stay and eat but I've never actually added a review (selfish I know!). Well this has now changed after staying at Riad Badi. We were there for 7 nights over New Year. Firstly, 7 nights in Marrakech is probably too long if you wanted to visit Marrakech... More
