From booking our stay at the Riad Houdou to leaving, our experience was fantastic. Didier e-mailed us before we arrived asking us if we wanted to book an airport transfer for €15 (we fully recommend you do this as its hassle free) and whether we wanted dinner on the first night or to take advantage of any experiences (hamman, massage,...

Dear Su and Justin, It was really our pleasure to receive you in the riad. And we are very happy to read (thank you for this great review!) you liked your stay. A riad is a small structure and that's why it is more easy for us to give you some advice and landmarks to be independent in the medina....

I did a lot of research before I travelled to Marrakech having been told that the variation in accommodation is vast and settled on the Riad Houdou following good recommendations on Trip Advisor. Myself and my partner were not disappointed in any way. The welcome we received at the Houdou was second to none. Eric and Didier (the owners)made us...

Had such a great time at the Riad Houdou. I decided at the last minute to come to Marrakech from NYC, and booked Riad Houdou based on other TA reviews.

The owners came down to the road to meet us well after midnight to walk us safely to the hotel. They were extremely friendly and gave us top recommendations for places to visit in Marrakech. They bent over backwards to accommodate us and ensure we had the most fantastic stay.

Lovely little Riad in the heart of the Souq. You walk out of the doors and you are literally in the middle of regular life in the Souq. The managers were lovely and accommodating, the staff all excellent, friendly and helpful. A good place if you are wanting to be in the middle of the action.

Like an oasis in the desert, Riad Houdou is a stark contrast to the noisy, bustling, hot medinas of Marrakech's old quarter. On arrival we were welcomed by Aziz, Eric and Didier three gentlemen who not only amazed us with their attention to detail but to their hospitality, embodying the Moroccan person (even if two of them are French). Between...

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.
