Just returned home from a fantastic week away in Fes. Dar Houdou was a welcoming and comfortable environment. Steve was an excellent host and very knowledgeable about the local area. 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... More

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!!

We spent four nights at Riad Dar Houdou during our recent trip to Fes. Great location -- close to the Medressa and five minutes walk to the Bab Boujloud (Blue Gate). We stayed in one of the rooms in the first floor (there are only three rooms in this riad) which was nice, sunny and quite with a large window.... More

The dar houdou is the perfect base to explore the medieval medina of Fez. Situated near the Bab Boujloud it is convenient bfor taxis and a plethora of restaurants. Having just 3 rooms there is a very friendly atmosphere and Steve and Mohammed provide a warm , multilingual welcome and a seemingly endless supply of information and advice to enable... More
