I recently got back from Morrocco and had a great time, a large part of which is a result of the amazing service at Riad Badi. The owners Christian and Isabelle, were warm, welcoming and full of great tips. As two girls travelling alone we were cautious about wondering around by ourselves, but they both went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience. Christian gave us a tour of Marrakech when we arrived (which he does for all guests) and Isabelle was kind enough to walk us back to the riad after a late dinner.
In terms of the location, the riad is very centrally within the medina, the older part of Marrakech. It only was only a 15 minute walk to attractions like the main square (Jemma el Fna), the start of the souks and palace Badi. It is tucked away in a small laneway which along with the high walls, keeps the interior and the rooms quiet and peaceful. This makes it a nice retreat from the general hectic pace of Marrakech. The breakfast tasty and consisted of a variation of Moroccan breads, cakes and spreads, with yogurt and fruit. I would also recommend the dinner which was so good we ate in for 2 nights out of our 3!
Overall the great service, high standards and location, would definitely make this Riad somewhere I would recommend to friends and stay at again :)
