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

Stayed with a few friends for 4 nights. Turned out to be an awesome stay. Didier and Eric are very hospitable and nothing is too much trouble for them. They helped us with everything we wanted.

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

I have been lucky to have travelled to Marrakech several times over the last few years, and to soak up the authentic experience have always tried to stay in the Medina. The Riad Houdou is a Riad above exception, with a personal service that creates a warm atmosphere of being with friends rather then staying at a hotel or a... More

My girlfriend and I spent 5 days at the riad houdou and the owners Eric and Didier together with their staff made it an amazing experience. Our room (barbouche) with its private terrace was so romantic and having dinner on the terrace on our first night was truly memorable. we have stayed in lots of great hotels around the world...
