I stayed 4 nights at this very nice hotel and could confirm every single positive remark made by previous reviewers about Riad Al Badia. It is conveniently located, close to most of the city attractions, a few steps from Palais Bahia and Palais El Badi and not far from the famous Place Jemaa el fna. Its rooms are very comfortable...

Our visit to Marrakech was made very special by our stay at Riad Badia. Our host, Laurent, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The riad is quite lovely, and our room very comfortable. The terraces, where we had a delicious breakfast, and public spaces were wonderful, and the service by the efficient staff was unfailingly excellent. The riad is... More

Everything everyone else has said on TripAdvisor reviews are all true. Riad Al Badia is a lovely place, the rooms are beautiful and tranquil. The service was charming, efficient and hospitable. Laurent Olier, Ahmed and his team provide outstanding hospitality and care. We travelled with our two young sons aged 12 and 10, who were treated with such kindness at... More

One can really only risk repeating what others have said about this place and especially its world class staff. From the moment we arrived we were treated like we owned the place, literally as if "this is your home" is their mantra. The staff- from the affable and incredibly knowledgeable Laurent, to his colleagues Ahmed (and Ahmed 2!) and the... More

We were overwhelmed by the choice of riads and chose this one on the basis of trip advisor reviews. I was a little nervous therefore as we picked our way down the little alley to find it.

This review is a bit overdue, as we stayed at this amazing Riad back in November 2010. It was still rather new then, but judging from all the positive reviews since then it looks like Laurent, Ahmed, and the rest of the team are still hard at work making travellers' holidays an amazing experience. Laurent was the perfect host, and... More

We did our research when choosing a Riad and went for this one because of the excellent reviews, they are pretty much bang on as the service is probably the best I have received in any accomodation we have stopped in.

They went out of their way to make us comfortable and help us enjoy Marrakech. The riad is a few hundred yards from a proper road, so cases need to be manhandled down the little alleyways. All part of the fun. We especially liked the breakfast on the roof terrace.
