Riyad el Cadi is a relaxing place in the heart of the Marrakesh Medina. Located only a few steps away from the oriental spirit of Medina's stalls and boothes it nevertheless offers the traveller an athmosphere of tranquility and recreation. The rooms - most of them large doubles or suites - have an interior desgin which - as I can says after trying some of the riads in town - is rarely found in Marrekesh. It is a very persuasive composition of oriental and modern style, which is not as overdone "oriental" as in other places.
Although Riyad el Cadi is one of the largest and therefore probably one of the most professional guest houses in the Medina, the different courtyards provides very welcome privacy after a stroll through the Medina.
All this is completed by delicous food and a very friendly staff, which however could sometimes be a little bit more attentive.
PS: Best place is the roof terrace with its view over the Medina up to the Atlas mountains.
