It's hard to expand on what others have said here. Christian and Isabelle are the perfect hosts and really care about your well-being. As mentioned by others, Christian's initial orientation walking tour immediately gives you confidence and an immediate inner map on how to get to and from Jemaa El Fna Square through the narrow souks. Riad Badi is really... More

Yet another 5 star rating for Isabelle, Christian and the team. We usually stay in quality hotels for weekend breaks but wanted to sample a riad for this trip, so after reading the great reviews for Riad Badi we thought choosing the number one on Trip Advisor seemed a good start. From the initial booking procedure (that involved changing arrival... More

My son and I chose Riad Badi for a two night stay after reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor and I’m very happy to say it lived up to all expectations. It is a lovely and elegant place to stay, in the old town and well-situated for exploring Marrakech. It is quiet and peaceful, yet so near the... More

Like most of the visitors to Riad Badi we booked based on the wonderful Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. From the moment Christian and Isabelle opened the door, until the moment we left, we were made to feel more like friends visiting their home. On our first morning Christian took us on a 2 hour tour of Marrakech, pointing... More

We booked this Riad based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Both Christian and Isabelle were very friendly and welcoming, no matter what the time was when we arrived at the Riad. Christian escorted us to a local hamman for our relaxation time.

We booked this Riad because of the great reviews and can confirm that all the good reviews are correct. Isabella and Christian are living in the Riad, so they are always available for advice and questions and provide valuable information about the city and the culture. Christian gave us a very helpful tour around the medina the first evening and... More

We spent five nights at Riad Badi at the beginning of October, and it's clear why it is number one on here.

During my booking arrangements Christian and Isabelle gave me a confidence that they ran a well organised operation. When I arrived after a long drive from the south Christian met me at Bab Mellah and took me to the Riad a short walk away.
