Imaginatively designed, spotlessly clean, authentic Riad. Excellent location in the heart of the Medina, within comfortable walking distance of the main square & sights. Bedrooms are decorated using typical Moroccan items with a modern twist, full of atmosphere & character. We stayed in the Fez room... very comfy beds, plenty of storage space and a traditional Tadelakt shower room with... More

I had the pleasure of staying in the Riad Houdo with my two daughters last week on a girlie holiday and can honestly say the hosts, Didier and Eric, took every effort to make sure we were looked after from start to finish. The owners organised our taxis, arranged a fabulous mule trip in the Atlas Mountains and even contacted... More

In April 2015, I spend a weekend in Riad Houdou. It is beautiful Riad in the Medina. The rooms are nice with great patio, common rooms and roof terrace. Eric, Didier and their staff practice HOSPITALITY with capital letters. The reception and explanation how to move around in town by Didier is fantastic. The food for dinner is very authentic...

My friends and I were lucky to find this lovely Riad in the heart of the Medina. Eric and Didier are WONDERFUL hosts and their staff (especially Aziz) were on par with 5 star resorts. The accommodations are a great value for the money. There are a number of quaint common areas to relax, chat with friends, or enjoy a... More

If you stay anywhere else in Marrakech, you have made a mistake. Didier and Eric provide the highest level of service whilst making you feel like you are staying with family or old friends. Our room was comfortable, beautifully decorated and smelled gorgeous :) The whole riad has been renovated to perfection and is incredibly clean. The staff are warm,... More

From the moment we sent an email to this Riad inquiring on a stay to the moment we checked out, we had stellar service and attention paid to our needs!

Riad Houdou was the perfect place to stay in Marrakesh and I would definitely recommend staying there! Didier and Eric had great hospitality and made sure my friend and I were well accommodated for everything we needed - even before we arrived in Morocco they were in constant email contact! We were two girls traveling and it was important to... More

Marrakesh is a rather hectic place to be - particularly in the medina - but Riad Houdou provides a wonderful calm in amongst it all. Eric and Didier are really helpful and friendly as are all the staff. They speak excellent English though the main language is French. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated imaginatively. The details are lovely.... More

Every detail was expertly attended to. All you need to do is ask and they make it happen. Really blown away by the personalised treatment. Great food and drink plus very private rooms with good beds, kid friendly and wonderful location.

We stayed here a few years ago. In the midst of hectic innercity Marrakech, we stayed at this wonderful Riad. Food is good, service is impeccable, rooms are clean and the whole Riad is decorated wonderfully. I would gladly go here again. Nice sitting areas.
