We chose Riad Houdou based on other positive and glowing reviews and we are so glad we did. We arrived at the bus station and were met by car (organised by Didier and Eric) which was able to drop us to a point about a 5 min walk from the riad where we were met by a man with a... More

We stayed at Riad Houdou for our three day visit to Marrakech. The riad is peacefully tucked away on a quiet street, but a close 5 minute walk to the main square in the Medina. Didier was a wonderful host and was patient and kind. We had dinner at the riad our first night there (you have to give them... More

We feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Riad Houdou. Situated in one of the quieter corners of the Medina, it was a peaceful and comfortable refuge after our adventures each day. Eric went out of his way to ensure we had a handle on our location, and to suggest various specific places to visit during our stay. There is... More

Riad Houdou is a wonderful place to stay when you are in Marrakech! Because we travelled with a car and the riad is situated right in the old medina, we were a little worried how to get to the place. Thanks to the good directions we found a safe parking spot just ten minutes walking from the riad. Riad Houdou... More

It's difficult to pile on more praises for this wonderful Riad without being redundant of all the other compliments that Eric and Didier well deserve. I will add, we came to this hotel from the Four Seasons which as you can imagine, is a large beautiful well run property and we were quite spoiled. But for an authentic Marrakech experience... More

Beautiful riad in the middle of the craziness of Marrakech's medina. While it took a little while to find the Riad, my companion and I immediately loved the property, our room (Tajine), Eric and Didier, and the staff (loved Aziz!). I was extremely impressed with the owners, as Eric took us on a tour to the Jemaa el Fna to... More

After returning from Essaouira in August we stayed with our family of four in Riad Houdou for one night. Simply a great place. After spending three days in a mediocre riad in Essaouira Riad Houdou was just the oasis to spend a last night before leaving Marrakech. A very clean place, a central court with beautiful plants, nice public rooms... More

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.
