Plus: the staff (all very friendly, helpful and smiling); the cozy atmosphere in the Riad, nicely decorated with attention to the detail; the location (200 mt from the Photography Museum; 5-10min easy walk from the main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa); the breakfast (tasty and abundant Moroccan breakfast, with fresh homemade products, slightly different every morning)

From the moment we arrived we were treated to fantastic food and drink. The accomodation was beautiful. The room was fantastic although a little tight getting in and out of bed. Altogether worth every penny!

Our family of four (incl. very active and hungry 3yo twins) had the most wonderful 3-night stay at Riad Houdou. We are so happy that we believed the hype, because everything was perfect; Eric and Didier are the friendliest, most helpful hosts, Aziz was so warm and gentle (our kids just loved him!), and oh my goodness, the amazing Rajaa...

We spent five nights at Riad Houdou over new year and couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay. Eric and Didier are brilliant hosts and the riad feels like a home from home. It's also wonderfully peaceful in the middle of the busy Medina. The breakfasts are delicious, as are the dinners. Make sure you eat there at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Riad last week and we cannot tell you how lovely the experience was. I highly recommend requesting a pick up from the airport - their driver, Ammen, will be waiting for you and will provide a lovely description of the city if you ask for it. He'll drive you as far as he... More

This hotel is owned by two French men: Didier and Erik who are probably the nicest hoteliers you could ever meet. The Medina is a crazy place but the Houdou is one of the oasis' in it.
