Myself and my parnter spent 9 nights in this Riad in October 2012and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The location is perfect, it's only a 5 minute walk from Jemaa el fna square (the main square in the medina) and therefore close to the souks and easy walking distance to just about all of the medina. It... More

We are a group of four friends who absolutely loved Riad Badi. We were warmly welcome on arrival by Christian and Isabelle who were great hosts, extremely helpful, willing to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was a pleasant one.

We booked this riad after looking at the reviews, and we're not disappointed. We were given instructions on how to get there by Isabelle, but our dodgy transfer driver decided to drop us off at a round about and make her come out to get us, which she did with a smile. We were then given hot mint tea with... More

Impossible to recommend this riad highly enough. All the favourable comments in previous reviews are absolutely correct. Christian accompanied us on a quick walk up to Jemaa el Fna on the evening of our arrival, and then a full morning’s tour of the souks and surrounding area the following morning. He even offered to take us on another walking tour... More

We were fortunate to have a three day break at Riad Badi. It truly is a haven of tranquility and is beautifully furnished but the exceptional bonus is the delightful hosts, Isobelle and Christian who look after your every need.

I will echo the sentiments of other reviewers when I say that Isabelle and Christian are truly remarkable hosts. They go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, and they are probably the most genuine, friendly hosts we’ve ever encountered in our travels.
