Lovely hotel with extremely helpful staff. The hotel and patios are beautiful and it is difficult to believe you are just steps away from the craziness of Jemma El Fna. Great breakfast as well. Would have loved to have had time to use the hamam....Would definitely recommend!

I had really been looking forward to my stay at Riyad el Cadi, and all of my high expectations were surpassed. Everything was truly first rate: the location, the style, the amenities, the room, the food, the staff. I would never stay anywhere else in Marrakech and have recommended to all of my friends and family. I was a little... More

brilliantly designed and thoughtfully put-together riyad in the heart of the medina, but amazingly quiet, considering the chaos outside the door !! Wonderfully helpful staff - Ali, Saïd, Tarik et. al. - made us feel totally at home and spoiled. And do yourself a favor - have dinner here one evening - wonderful kitchen, nice Essaouira wine, and dessert, in... More

The el cadi makes you feel at home, tastefully decorated, excellent service, a hamam just for you - the perfect place to relax after a busy day in the fascinating old town of marrakech - what else do you want

Riyad El Cadi is a perfect spot for the ones who dream about experience Marrakech: the structure with courtyards and hidden rooms makes you feel how it would be to live in that place. The staff is attentive in the Moroccan way, which means friendly and always ready to suggest you options like dinner, hamam, tours or cooking classes but... More

labyrinth of narrow hallways and staircases that lead to patios, roof terraces and incredibly beautiful courtyards (one with a small pool, one with lemontrees, one I haven't even found yet). Beautiful traditional rooms, good food and super friendly staff. Layout of the place makes it easy to meet other travellers.

The El Cadi was a fabulous experience for our entire family. Ali and his staff arranged everything for us from airport pickup, trip to the Atlas Mountains, dinners and a cooking class held right at the Riyad. We stayed in the Blue House which was perfect for the family and the pool enjoyable for hot afternoons. The Riyad staff could... More

We had a good time at El Cadi. We had one of the two smaller rooms on the ground floor. The bathroom was surprisingly large and the beds very comfortable. This hotel is difficult to find so accept the hotel's offer to come pick you up on the square. Breakfast on the rooftop is very pleasant.

I agree with your reviewers, and I stand by their descriptions...this Riyad was the stuff of dreams. Something out of the Arabian Nights but with some modern things thrown in...like satellite discs on the neighbouring roof tops. Yet, with the warm and 'loving' people who made our stay so wonderful. Despite Marrakech being so touristy, this place was a haven... More

Don't miss this! El Cadi is a lovely spot with some of the best hospitality I received. The team is incredibly helpful, from restaurant reservations to guides to shopping tips. The breakfasts are nice, and mint tea is always right around the corner in the cool gardens. It's a perfect respite. I loved my stay and highly recommend!
