The riad is beautifully decorated and really is a haven from the hustle and bustle outside. It's very conveniently located, very close to the Maison de Photographie and the main square.The room itself was very spacious and a welcome change after sharing a more compact room over the last a few days. We were there for just two nights. We... More

Marrakesh is a bustling culture that can almost be overwhelming. Thanks to Didier, Eric, and the rest of the staff, my friend and I had an easy time navigating around the Medina. As for the actual Riad, it's very clean, air conditioned, and beautifully decorated. The included breakfast was very good, and our last day we were even accommodated at... More

Didier was very helpful answering a lot of advance questions we had about Marrakech as well as setting up transportation from the airport to the Riad. He also suggested that our family do a trip to Imlil to have lunch with a Berber family which he also arranged. This trip was wonderful, everybody (including our 2 kids ages 9 and... More

Before traveling to Marrakech, we literally looked at probably 3 dozen riads on TripAdvisor before deciding on Riad Houdou. We absolutely made the best decision. The staff is so friendly & accommodating, waiting on us hand and foot. From the location, to the room, to the food- everything about this place is 100%. Eric & Didier contacted us prior to... More

From the beginning, I had great contact with Didier, one of the owners. We were greeted by the driver and brought straight to the Riad. My family of 5 were welcomed with tea and a fabulous dinner. The accommodations were extremely clean and comfortable. The next morning, Didier showed us around the medina and made us feel very comfortable. We... More

Eric and Didier were fantastic hosts - they upgraded our room for 3 nights, our total stay. Everything from the staff to the food to their plunge pool made the visit comfortable. The hammam is a must do.

Eric and Didier have really made this Riad special. I was one of five friends who stayed in two rooms for two nights in June 2015. We all had a great time here. The location is in the heart of the Medina and 10-15min walk to the main square and markets. The Riad itself is beautiful and it really did... More
