My friend and I stayed in Riad Badi for four nights and absolutely loved it. The location is brilliant - very easy to reach anywhere in Marrakech by foot and close to a number of great restaurants. Isabelle was a wonderful host - even recovering from an operation and with her husband in France, she went out of her way...

The Riad Badi is an oasis in the Medina of Marrakech. The owners, Christian and Isabel, go out of their way to introduce you to the Medina and Souk. The Riad is conveniently located near the Souk. The rooms are large, the beds are comfortable and the shower is modern. The roof top garden with a plunge pool is very...

We stayed here last year and liked it so much that when we returned to Marrakech this year we didn't consider staying anywhere else. The hosts and staff are wonderful and nothing is to much trouble. As we have stayed here before we did not avail ourselves of the tour offered by Christian as we already knew our way around....

My husband & I have been to Marrakech before and stayed out of town so we were looking for somewhere close to the square. We really couldn't have chosen a better Riad.

After going through the bustle of Marrakesh, we couldn't believe how lovely and quiet this little riad is. It is just close enough to the casbah and medina and all their landmarks as well as Jamaa El Fna, but provides the restful peace of a little castle in the middle of a crowded city. The decoration is lovely and the...

This Riad was perfectly situated right next to the Badi Palace, very close to the Medina but far enough away to be peaceful. The only noise came from the storks sitting on the ruined walls of the palace next door! They greeted us every morning when we breakfasted on the roof terrace.
