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. The first day Didier walked us over to Place Jemaa El Fna (the square) to show us where to change money which was... More

we had a lovely short stay. Welcome was perfect, the Theieres room is nice for 3 and the freshly prepared breakfast spot on. Didier did everything possible to make our first visit to Marrakech a very pleasant one. His advice for what to do was perfect for us as a couple with a small child (4). He even found the... More

A great and helpful staff! As the riad is down a side derb it was be tricky to find. The managers take their time and offer to assist with directions. If you are new to Marrakech I would recommend taking them up on transportation help from the airport, etc. The rooms are beautiful and breakfast was tasty. An excellent value!
