Sorry for the late review! A friend and I went to Marrakesh over the Christmas period. Well to start with, our flight was delayed and we got there a few hours later than planned and we had already pre booked a taxi through the Riad. We were of course worried that maybe no one would be there, but the driver... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Houdou, and especially the personal touch from the two owners, and their lovely staff. Eric and Didier have put a lot of care and attention into the renovation and decoration of the Riad, including a new hammam/spa center. The owners were always around to answer questions, and they take pride in being present... More

Excellent trip and a really lovely place to stay. The hosts were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was beautiful and the food was great. Particularly enjoyed breakfast overlooking the city. Would definitely recommend.

We have been stayed in Riad Houdou for 4 nights and we are very happy that we choose this small jewel in Marrakesch. The Riad is very cozy decorated and offering with its patio and roof terrace place to relax whilst not exploring the Medina. We had 2 nights dinner and i have to say that the food served in... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for NYE 2015. Having never stayed in a riad before I was unsure what to expect but I can honestly say, it was amazing! The Riad experience is so much more personal than a hotel. We found it a perfect place to relax and unwind. The owners, Didier and Eric were extremely helpful. They... More

Where to start? Eric, Didier and their team made our week long stay in Marrakech superb. It would not have been nearly as good as it was if we weren't staying at Riad Houdou.

This Riad run by Eric and Didier is a lovely place to stay in the chaos of the Medina. I arranged a pick up with Didier from the airport which is essential as we would never have found it on our own. We were greeted with mint tea and some sweet cakes before we settled into our rooms. The rooms... More

They always say, if you want to experience the real deal of a city, be like one of the locals. Stay where the heart is, walk like how they walk. Riad Houdou is tucked in the spinning streets of Marrakesh Medina. A true Riad (garden) in the middle of the hustle & bustle. We rode a taxi and sent us... More
