Service at the El Cadi – Riad Marrakech

The El Cadi Riad Marrakech is not a hotel with indistinguishable rooms, but a guesthouse where all rooms are individually created. We aim to serve our guests without their being aware of it – as if they stayed with friends: Our service is unobtrusive but always attentive.
