This Riad run by a French couple - Gilles and Dominique - is a true gem in the midst of Marrakech' madness. Gilles was very quick in communication and didn't mind to pick us up - with our car - at Bab Doukala to guide us to the closest car park. Once at the riad everything was very relaxed; tea,...

Wonderful hosts, so caring and helpful from months out when we mailed back and forth, a driver to pick me up from the airport, a personalised half day walking tour arranged for my first morning in Marrakech and even giving me a phone on speed dial when I first ventured out on my own in case I got lost or...

I have been on many international vacations, and traveled all over the USA as well. I have stayed in many Inns, B&Bs, hotels, ryokans, riads, and AirBNBs. Dominique and Gilles are by far the nicest, most accommodating hosts I have ever stayed with. This is the perfect place to start when visiting Morocco. They took a lot of time to...

The Riad is exactly as pictured and described online, with a peaceful central courtyard where breakfast is served and comfortable rooms. The location is fantastic, as other reviewers have said-- well-location for walking to virtually anywhere in Marrakech, and surrounded by interesting street markets and attractions. Gilles and Dominique are wonderful hosts: helpful, welcoming, and friendly. All in all, a...

We adored our stay with Dominique & Gilles and would highly recommend the Riad to any of our friends visiting Marrakech! Dominique and Fatiha stayed up until 2am to greet us when our flight landed late. We stayed for 5 nights and got a free ride from and to the airport. The Riad was a lovely home-base and felt like...

They are a very warm and welcoming couple and...

Riad Abaca Badra is truly a gem in the western part of the Medina of Marrakech. Tucked away in a side street near Bab Doukkala, French expats Gilles and Dominique have remodeled a traditional Riad, complete with indoor water feature and garden for a genuine Marrakechi experience with a dash of French hospitality. This beautiful Riad and its welcoming staff...

We stayed here last week for the few nights we had in Marrakesh before our return trip back to the States. The location is ideal - very close to the main square and walking / cheap cab fare distance to all the main attractions. The riad is very nicely done, homey, comfortable. The rooms are fantastic, spacious, comfy beds and...

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful Riad. Upon booking we were sent an email with a map detailing how to get to the riad as we were making our own way there. This made it very easy to find. Then from the moment we set foot in the door we were made to feel very welcome and extremely at...
