We spent 3 nights in the Riad on an all-girls trip. We chose the Riad as it was ranked number 1 in tripadvisor, and we must say it's a well-deserved place. The centrally located Riad is very clean, and well maintained. Towels were changed everyday. Breakfast varied every morning. We did not get the chance to try having dinner in... More

We recently spent 4 nights at Riad Badi based on the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor. Every review is true and it is difficult to add anything to what has been said many times before. Staying with Christian and Isabelle was like staying in their home (they live at the Riad) and they made us feel very welcome. On arrival... More

There are so many riads to choose from in Marrakech that it can be overwhelming. Looking at the trip advisor ratings before we chose, this one almost seemed too good to be true but in fact the universally high ratings were entirely justified. Nicely located an interesting few minutes walk from Jemaa el-Fna, the room we stayed in (hibiscus) was... More

As most others, we stayed here on good Trip Advisor ratings and the recommendations couldn't have been more justified.

We stayed 2 nights at Riad Badi in Marrakech. Isabelle and Christian were welcoming, friendly and very helpful hosts. The riad is a tranquil oasis in a chaotic city, yet situated close enough so you can easily walk to all the main sites.
