experience a different culture from the comfort of this riad. In the medina you are a short walk away from all the sights that scare or interest you. Great position, friendly,hands on owner,not luxurious but if you want all that go to the Hilton.

Mohamed the manager speaks very good English and is a gold mine of useful information on where to go in the medina. The owner, Steve, is a lovely chap and also a great source of local knowledge for... More

Steve the owner, is an expat who knows exactly what travellers need. Above all things honesty. He got a reliable driver to pick me up from train station. He explained clearly how to find your way around the old city in Fez. He told of 2 restaurants that do not overcharge and give good quality food. The beds are very... More

We found it by chance and it was a great surprise for us. We planned to stay one night, and ended up staying three. The breakfast is great, the riad very clean and quiet, the staff is very helpful, and Steve is a great host. Whithin that budget, we absolutly recommend it.

Breakfast was first class with fresh breads and pancakes each day and fresh orange. The house is very clean and comfortable and maintained to a high standard by Steve's staff;... More

Back in Fez again and I can report that the Dar Houdou continues to offer great value. As I've mentioned before it is ideally situated for exploring the Medina and , if you need them , tours, guides and taxis can all be easily arranged . There are many up- market "palais et spas " appearing but the Dar Houdou... More

Located in the heart of the Fes medina this guest house is a total gem. The owner Steve and his great staff are extremely welcoming and made sure we had everything needed for a truly great stay. Just great.

This is a great little guesthouse in Fes medina. Perfect location and perfect hosts - Steve and Mohammed are both very helpful. Brilliant breakfast in the morning, and electric blankets! Couldn't really have asked for anything else.

During my recent three week visit to Fes, i slept in eleven different riads and dars. Dar Houdou was one of the top experiences. Its location is amazing - just off the Talaa Saghira, one of the main arteries of the Fes Medina and literally steps away from the famous Bou Inania medresa. Easy to find, except that on the...

We made riads, hotels and hostels all over Morrocco during 2 weeks and Dar Houdou was by far the best we did: best location, best breakfast, lovely room and terrassa, we enjoyed so much our stay. A great time, thank you!!
