Solo traveller, booked at short notice. Great communication and with a little research easy to find. Warm reception and great room. Eric and Didier are very welcoming and great for suggesting things to see while in Marrakech. Wish I spent longer at this Riad..... Next time! Highly reccomended.

We have spent two nights in this beautiful Riad at the end of February. We are a family of four and because of our two very small children we can be sometimes very demanding.

I have to say one the best and most surprising hotel stays I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The rooms, the ambience, the food all were more or less perfect, especially after a hard couple of days in the Atlas Mountains!

What a warm welcome we received in this haven of tranquillity, followed by Eric's introductory guide to navigating the narrow streets to the main square.

Didier and Eric of Riad Houdou are by far the best hosts I’ve experienced. I’ve travelled to Tunisia and Egypt and stayed in some lovely guest houses but Riad Houdou really felt like you were coming to stay with old friends.
