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. And also gave us useful information about avoiding been conned by locals and the best way of doing the activities we wanted to do.... More

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...

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.

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.
