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

We have just returned from four nights at this beautiful Riad in Marrakech. We could not fault the whole experience. We loved the décor in all the areas, lots of interesting details with a true feeling of Morocco. Didier and Eric and the team make sure that each guest feels special and nothing is too much trouble. The food was... More

Just returned from a girl’s trip and Eric, Didier and the staff were one of the main reasons we loved our vacation!

This was a lovely little place we would happily stay at again the next time we're in Marrakech. Eric and Didier were warm and welcoming (as was all the staff) and upon arrival it is clear they have decorated the place well and were great hosts. The breakfast is kinda light by western standards (but as was every other b&b... More

Thank you for your review and to have chosen our riad. Thank you for the review and all you have appreciate. But I have to say that I am surprised about the bad point about the breakfast.

When I was planning for our holiday in Marrakech, the choice of riads was so plentiful it was quite hard to actually decide which would be the perfect place to stay.

This Riad has two wonderful owners. Originally from France the owners now live and work in Marrakesch. They are very familiar with the culture and the people which is great for visiting tourists who can take full advantage of their local knowledge. Upon arrival the owners suggest you take a tour with them through the Medinas so that they can... More

The Riad is in a very authentic area in the Medina. Lots of thought & effort have gone into making the Riad beautiful & different. All the staff are very welcoming, helpful & friendly. Having dinner there is an occasion in itself. Thank all of you for a great few days.

This was a first trip to Marrakech for both myself and my friend - stepping through the door into the Riad was a revelation - such a beautiful place - so quiet and tranquil.

I don't usually leave reviews, but just felt that as this was so perfect, I needed to.

If I returned to Marrakech I would stay nowhere else. On arriving we were greeted with mint tea and pastries and a welcoming chat about our stay. Eric showed us the way to the square to ensure we did not get lost. I would recommend eating in on the first night, the food was the best we had and it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
