We started our 2 week trip to Morocco in Marrakech and the Riyad El Cadi was a brilliant start. We travelled with our children 4,8 and 9. The Riyad was perfectly located in the Medina close to the main square Jmaa El Fna and was friendly, uncomplicated, clean and absolutely beautiful. The roof top breakfasts were amazing in the morning.... More

Let's start with the Ryad. Pros: It's super centrally located, 5 minutes from the main square Jemaa el-Fnaa. The terrace is wonderful and the courtyard is pretty, very peaceful. Even though it was cloudy during my stay, the pool seemed nice. There are plenty of hidden areas where you can just sit, chill and relax while reading a book. I... More

The Riyad is a picturesque gem in the middle of the old medina close to the Jemaa el-Fnaa. We were very happy with the Berber suite, while the other suite, where we stayed one night, and the one we were offered first were just okay. However, the price was the same for all three suites. In some regard I missed... More

Riyad El Cadi is a very special place and I would definitely like to return. Tucked away in the historic medina, as soon as you enter you will begin to see the reasons why it is so lovely. It has four beautiful courtyards, with the rooms on the ground and first floors. Each courtyard is beautifully decorated - and so... More

After a short taxiride from the airport, you arrive on the jemaa el fna, a crazy place for the common european tourist. After a few minutes walk with one of the riads very friendly staff you reach a place of peace and quiet that is just stunning. Everyone at the riad is trying to make you feel at home (whithout...

This Riyad is tucked away down a side street very close to the square. Once inside the atmosphere is one of tranquillity and calm. All rooms have their own identity ( we were staying with a wedding party who rented out the entire place so we saw quite a few of the rooms) We stayed in the Chaouen Suite which... More

I was very excited to return to Ryiad El Cadi. I had wonderful memories of the Riad from our last visit. Centrally located near the Djmaall El Fna square, this handsome and unpretentious Riad is composed of seven houses each with its own courtyard. I like the fact that it has character, because it is not a composed setting. It's... More

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
