Isabelle and Christian were fantastic hosts and helped in many ways from booking restaurants and taxis to suggesting places to visit. The Riad is well situated for visiting the Medina and offers lovely rooms, fabulous breakfast,a plunge pool and great hospitality. I...

Okay... so I haven't stayed at every Riad in Morocco, but we did almost 3 weeks around the country, stayed at some very nice Riads and Riad Badi was the best. We walked to Riad Badi from Nouvelle Marrakech (a decent walk but was fine for us) and my friend was very sceptical when I took him down the alley...

We returned from Riad Badi on Monday and can't praise it highly enough. We'd read the good reviews and Isabelle and Christian deserve every positive word.

We stayed (a party of four) for five nights at Riad Badi in April. We simply could not have asked for anything more and in no way can fault our stay.

My apprehension in booking a Riad originally sat around the words "traditional guest house", imagining something like a typical British guest house, so after spending hours looking at accommodation I decided to trust previous reviews on trip advisor and book the Riad Badi. We booked the Riad's private transfer from the airport - easy to find, friendly guy, luxurious, spacious...
