Riad Houdou was recommended for us by a friend and there are no words to describe how excellent it was. "Heaven is a place on Earth" is what I thought about the place. The calming and relaxing atmosphere,great staff and breath taking food was a perfect combination!

I have just returned from a week away in Marrakech and stayed one night at the Riad Houdou. As many others have said, this place is just a dream! The riad itself is impeccable - really clean with lovely decor and is a real oasis from the chaos of the medina. The open air courtyard where we ate and had... More

What an incredible experience thanks to Eric and Didier! These passionate hosts will welcome you warmly into their riad and you won't want to leave. Their level of service and hospitality was absolutely wonderful; from walking us into the main square so we get to know our neighbourhood, to sitting and chatting over mint tea on the rooftop terrace upon...

Riad Houdou was our base of operations during a four day trip to Marrakech. The rooms are a bit smaller than some of the other riads we stayed in but the pool and fruit trees in the courtyard add to the beautiful setting. Since we had an upstairs room, we were able to leave the doors open while we lounged... More

Spent a relaxing seven nights in Marrakech and stayed at the wonderful Riad Houdou for one of those. Upon arrival we were greeted with drinks and nibbles, and had an enlightening chat with one of the friendly owners. The room and roof terrace were marvellous, as was the evening meal. In the morning we were provided with a hearty breakfast,... More

We spent 3 nights at Riad Houdou a couple of weeks ago and had a brilliant time. The riad is in the perfect location for sightseeing - walking distance from plenty of sights whilst also being convenient enough to get cabs. The rooms, while not the height of luxury, were clean and comfortable. Didier, Eric and all their staff could... More

Located in historical quarters and typical of the medina of Marrakech, the ryad Houdou is a masonry of the XVIIe century, middle-class old property of a rich family astronomers. Associating traditional architecture and a contemporary furnishing, the decoration of the riad reflects Morocco and our personality.
