Lovely little Riad in the heart of the Souq. You walk out of the doors and you are literally in the middle of regular life in the Souq. The managers were lovely and accommodating, the staff all excellent, friendly and helpful. A good place if you are wanting to be in the middle of the action.

Like an oasis in the desert, Riad Houdou is a stark contrast to the noisy, bustling, hot medinas of Marrakech's old quarter. On arrival we were welcomed by Aziz, Eric and Didier three gentlemen who not only amazed us with their attention to detail but to their hospitality, embodying the Moroccan person (even if two of them are French).

The room was good. Most importantly the hosts were very welcoming. We had a request for an early breakfast which was arranged at a short notice. and the breakfast was really nice. The location of this riad is practically 7 minutes from the main square, which is great. Plenty of options to eat out and soak in the atmosphere. It... More

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

Thank you very much for this comment. We are very you enjoyed your stay. It is very important for us to share diner with our guest.

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

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.
