Our stay with Isabelle & Christian at their wonderful Riad could not have been more perfect. From our charming driver who picked us up from the airport organised by them, to the charming and attentive hospitality. We looked forward every morning to Isabelle's delicious breakfasts on the terrace, different and homemade every day. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the...

In Marrakech, 10 minutes walk from the big quare, lies a lovely small riad owned by the French couple Cristian and Isabell. The riad is tastefully equipped, and the rooms are pretty and spacious. Breakfast is different every day - but always extremely tasty. Christian and Isabell are very friendly and helpful to be around. Christian even took us for...

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...

What a fantastic find Riad Badi is - we had a wonderful stay here before going out to the countryside for a yoga holiday. The Riad is tucked down an alleyway so you would never find it unless you knew where you were going, but yet only a 15 min walk to the main square. And the tucked away spot...

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...
