We have spent two nights in this beautiful Riad at the end of February. We are a family of four and because of our two very small children we can be sometimes very demanding. Didier and Eric did their utmost to make us feel at home and facilitated all our needs. We also recommend to have dinner in the Riad,... More

I have to say one the best and most surprising hotel stays I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The rooms, the ambience, the food all were more or less perfect, especially after a hard couple of days in the Atlas Mountains! Didier and Eric's attention to detail and service was simply amazing and two nicer people you will... More

What a warm welcome we received in this haven of tranquillity, followed by Eric's introductory guide to navigating the narrow streets to the main square. We also had booked a meal in advance for our first night only, for ease, again other than the experience of eating one evening from the stalls at Jamma el Fna we chose to eat... More

It is very difficult to say anymore than what has been said previously. We chose to visit Marrakech for our anniversary and came across Riad Houdou.

Didier and Eric of Riad Houdou are by far the best hosts I’ve experienced. I’ve travelled to Tunisia and Egypt and stayed in some lovely guest houses but Riad Houdou really felt like you were coming to stay with old friends.
