Riad Badi was the perfect place to stay in Marrakesh. Isabelle and Christian were amazing hosts, and took care of our every need. The Riad itself is just a 5 minute walk from all the major sites in the Medina, but it couldn’t seem further from the hustle and bustle of the streets. We loved our yummy breakfasts every morning...

After many years of wanting to visit Marrakech I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Badi and the trip was simply perfect.

In the busiest place in the whole world Isabella and Christian have managed to create a tranquil paradise of Moroccan beauty. First things first. There was only one negative thing about this trip. It was only 4 days long. The rest is just awesome. We arrived at the Riad to be given a really inclusive welcome orientation by Christian. He... More

We have just returned from our first trip to Marrakesh. We chose our accommodation carefully so that we had an authentic feel of the city and its people. We found the riad tucked away from the hubbub of the main square but a short stroll away from all the noise and chaos that is Marrakesh! Our room was delightful, comfortable... More

We spent 4 nights in the Turquoise Room and we couldn't be happier. The room was immaculate everyday and the towels are always fresh and they always have new ways to arrange them.

A lovely oasis far enough from the chaos outside to be perfectly peaceful but near enough to walk to the main sights. Isabelle and Christian go out of their way to make sure you trip goes well.

A complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Isabelle and Christian have created a peaceful retreat in a quiet area but which is very close to the sights.
