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!

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.

Riad Houdou is an awesome place to stay - peaceful, beautiful, lovely, clean, delicious mint tea and I still haven't forgotten the morning homemade honey yogurt. Eric, Didier and staff were very welcoming and informative. We had a very pleasant 6 night stay.

Our family stayed in the suite on our first night to Marrakech. Very roomy, lovely decor, my kids had fun exploring the room and riad, playing with two turtles. Before the trip, we had a few questions and Didier was very prompt with his answers. Upon arriving we were welcomed with tea, biscuits. Didier showed us around and how to... More

We (a family of 4 people) stayed for four nights during our stay in Marrakech. Transportation (from and to the airport) was done smoothly and when we arrived the owner welcomed us with mint tea, which was very refreshing. Then he showed us around the hotel, gave us some tips of visiting places / shopping in the city. The riad... More
