We had a fantastic 5 night stay at Riad Badi. It was truly a luxurious oasis of mint tea, tagine, rose petals, lemon trees and singing birds. After a private tour of the city and many great recommendations for sightseeing and eating, we were welcomed back to the Riad as if it were home. Thank you to our lovely hosts,... More

Isabelle and Christian were wonderful hosts during our stay here. Christian took us around the Jemaa el-Fnaa square, gave us recommendations on places to eat - little touches of thoughtfulness that made a difference. For example, I had mentioned I liked the Moroccan style pancake and Isabelle ensured it was prepared for me for breakfast. The BnB is decorated in... More

We had a four night stay at Riad Badi and absolutely loved our time there. It is situated just minutes away from the main square, off of a few quiet alleyways.

Great location for visiting the square (Jemaa El Fna) and souks as its just inside the medina walls. Walking to the riad you'll realise what people mean when they say the old town is full of alleys and little streets. The riad is clean and quiet with spacious bedrooms. On the rooftop you have a sun garden and plunge pool.... More
