We arrived in Marrakech late at night, meandered through the lively streets, dodged a few mopeds and then arrived at the Riad. The door opened to an oasis of calm (and style!). The hosts Eric and Didier were as stylish as the place and did everything to ensure we had a great time. We were travelling with our two sons... More

Everything was truly wonderful. The rooms are lovely and unique, and the dining area is a cool and peaceful place. Didier and Eric are wonderful hosts, Didier even took the time to walk me to the main square and a restaurant, making sure I would find my way there and back. The location is perfect, close enough to all the... More

Didier and Erik are the perfect hosts. I had a lot of questions prior to our arrival and all were answered in the nicest and most helpful way.

We stayed in Riad Houdou for a few nights in July. The Riad is located in the middle of the Medina (old town), although it's not hard to get there (it's very close to place Moukef, where taxis can still stop). They have a pick up service to and from the airport, which is slightly more expensive than a taxi,... More

I didn't actually stay here but the two French guys helped me out when I was lost.

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

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

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. Living on the place, we want to give again all his direction with the concept of guest house. Here, you will discover expatriation all while feeling you as on your premise. ... more   less
