This is a great place to stay for a visit to Marrakech. Firstly Christian and Isabelle were really helpful before we'd even got to the Riad, contacting us via email and answering any of our questions very promptly. I would recommend getting the taxi organised by them for transport to and from the airport, as I think it would have... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The Riad Badi is run by a lovely French couple, Isabelle and Christian. They make you feel very welcome.
