Lovely little Riad run by a French couple (who speak perfect English). Down a quiet street just of centre of Marrakeash. Rooms nicely furnished with all you could hope for. Roof top in summer must be lovely to sit out on. There are plenty of sitting out areas downstairs. Owner gave us a very useful orientation tour of Souk and...

Booked this place on the basis of Tripadvisor rating and was certainly not disappointed. We wanted something within the Medina and this place is close enough but offering total peace and calm. Tucked away down a traditional side street the Riad and the rooms were beautifully decorated and I am sure not to be bettered even by the most expensive...

This place is fantastic. Christian and Isabelle looked after us from the moment we walked in the door until the moment we left. They provided so much useful information about the town and even walked us around on our first night. Riad Badi is standard against which other hotels should be judged.

If your visiting Marrakesh to see the culture, different way of life, history and natural beauty as well as the amazing food then you should also stay in a tradition residence.
