We had a four night stay at Riad Badi and absolutely loved our time there. It is situated just minutes away from the main square, off of a few quiet alleyways. We were greeted by Isabelle and Christian and immediately received generous hospitality. Christian gave us a map and actually showed us around the Medina, which was extremely helpful to...

Great location for visiting the square (Jemaa El Fna) and souks as its just inside the medina walls. Walking to the riad you'll realise what people mean when they say the old town is full of alleys and little streets. The riad is clean and quiet with spacious bedrooms. On the rooftop you have a sun garden and plunge pool....

Dear Cathy, Thank you for choosing Riad badi and for posting the very nice review. We are delighted to welcome you and to help you during your stay: some advices and a tour in the Medina.

This riad ticks all the boxes. It's close to the Djema el-Fna, is clean and quiet; the hosts provide not only a wonderful breakfast, but an tour of the local area on arrival. I couldn't recommend highly enough.
