Lovely riad just 5 minutes from main square. All is very original, never artificial. Very relaxing: lovely to rest there after very intense marrakesh walking... Internal patios and livings are very welcoming, as well as the roof where it is lovely to have breakfast. Pool is very tiny but it is not the main attractio in a Riad. Staff very... More

We stayed in the Cadi for 4 nights with our 4 year old. We had a suite just off the main courtyard with a separate room for our daughter to sleep in and lots of space. I know that some people had complained about the noise in past as it also over looked a little patio by the kitchen, but... More

We stayed in the Blue House (2 adults and 2 pre-teens). So much space and close to the wifi patio for my daughter. Friendly staff, it all felt very authentic. I loved sun bathing on the roof terrace and apart from the call to prayer you cannot here the hustle and bustle of the streets outside. Tucked away down a... More

I spent a week in Riyad El Cadi. The hotel is beautiful with an original and exotic style in the middle of old town. I loved it. I traveled alone as a woman and there I could get to know a lot of nice people. The hotel service, view, design and style was just magnificent and fantastic. An excellent hotel... More

I stayed with a large group (choir) and we took over the Riyad - no other visitors. Fantastically helpful staff - I walk with two sticks, and they were constantly thoughtful about my manoeuvring up and down the staircases to reach the rooftop breakfast, offered me meals at ground level, and so on. I was the only one to try... More

..in the middle of Marrakech, having driven our hire car from Agadir, this was SUCH a peaceful, calm, cooling and beautiful place. It's more than tucked away, it's unfindable with 2 small children, luggage and parking etc, so thanks to my wife's advice, we paid a cab driver to drive there and followed him to as close as we could...

We stayed in the Riyad el Cadi, which was recommended to us through friends, in March 2014 for two nights and chose the Berber suite for our stay. The Riyad el Cadi is located very conveniently close to the central market square in Marrakesh in a quiet side alley. There are no signboards at all pointing you in the right... More

I stayed at Riyad El Cadi for 5 wonderful nights and to say it exceeded all expectations would be an understatement. Let me first start with the property itself. It is tucked away on a side street within the souks, so you the serenity of the Riyad while also being within walking distance of Jemma el FNA, the main square.... More

Our family stayed for five days over New Year and we highly recommend this friendly and relaxing riyad. Beautiful breakfasts on the roof terrace, excellent service and a wonderful New Years Eve dinner. We particularly recommend the cookery course. This is a great place to stay and is a tranquil oasis amidst the wonders of Marrakech.

Dive into the souks, hustled by the vendors, amazed by snakes and monkeys, negotiate with the berber, smell the odors... your body and mind go through a wide range of feelings here in Marrakech. Your in the orient. Then you open the door of this beautiful riyad and you step into a different world. Calm and stylish rooms, sunny roof... More
