10/10 Exceptional

First time in Morocco. Arrived at the airport as planned and the car arranged by the hotel was eagerly awaiting our arrival. Took us straight to hotel no fuss, This place was like the Tardis. First impression Looked small from outside but as you go in the hotel triples in size. Had a very friendly and informative host Khadija, Map given to us with a complimentary drink on arrival. the workers were also very friendly and would happily assist whenever asked and always offered to make a drink every time we went exploring the hotel. the room we stayed in was amazing and the WIFI also was great. It was also bang in the centre of the old Medina and the famous marketplace outside our door place. Everything around us was walking distance and if we needed to go further taxis were readily available. Thank you Khadija, Marwan and Badar for always being available to answer any questions and providing useful information about activities. Would highly recommend this place, And when I visit again In’Sha’Allah this is where I’ll be staying. Thank you for a great visit and experience.

Wonderful Riad right in the centre of the old town. Beautiful surroundings in a courtyard setting. Very comfortable and safe and super helpful. After having to do a 9 hr detour from the mountains, their porter came to take our luggage and take us there at 4 am in the morning. Definitely recommend this Riad.

Family trip to Marrakech
Though my family and I have traveled around the world, the search for a Riad felt very challenging due to many Riads not accepting children and lack of riads with rooms that could accomodate our family. We finally found Riyad El Cadi which had larger rooms (Ottoman Suite, Master Suite, Blue House) and decided to book given the great reviews. I can say without hesitation that this turned out to be a wonderful decision for our family. Riyad El Cadi is very well situated for navigating around the medina. It is impeccably clean and well-maintained. Service is top notch - we had a few hiccups due to things perhaps getting lost in translation, but anything we arranged through Julia or Khadijah was perfect. Lastly, they upgraded us to the Master Suite from the Ottoman suite and the size was perfect for our family of 5 (three children, 10, 7 and 2). We had our own private patio as well as a minibar and private rooftop terrace. If you are traveling to Marrakech with a family (or not), I cannot recommend this accomodation enough. Thank you, Julia, Khadijah, Karim, Said and everyone for making our stay so memorable that it feels like a delightful dream. The Khan family hopes to see you all again someday insha'Allah!

Perfect Morrocan experience
The hotel is right in the middle of the Medina, walking distance to all the action. Super attentive staff and very good accommodations. Couldn’t be better for our first trip to the city.

Experience real Moroccan hospitality.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff of the Riyad El Cadi. The Riyad is situated directly in the middle of Marrakech right next to the bustling markets, it’s a great place to explore this amazingly interesting city. On arrival at the hotel rather late in the evening the Riyad provided us with a beautifully home cooked Moroccan meal which we ate in the lovely surrounding of the Riyads courtyard. The breakfasts on the roof terrace were also especially delightful.

Bonjour, Les photos du site ne sont pas du tout la réalité de ce que nous avons trouvez en arrivant. Hébergement vétuste propreté à revoir. Par contre le repas excellent , chef passionné et personnel très agréable.
