Very nice and clean, but especially, very nice staff, we really enjoy our stay! Eric is very helpful, he shower us around and gave us suggestions about getting around in Marrakech, that surely is not an easy city. The Riad is a peaceful bit in the medina.

I stayed at Riad Houdou for 3 nights in April with my wife and 2 young children, and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Marrakech.

My family (2 adults and 2 kids - of 8 and 11) stayed in March 2016 in the Riad Houdou for three nights on our round-trip of Morocco. The riad is well located, close enough to the main square and other main attractions, but just out of the busiest roads which provided a calmer environment. We never got back very... More

Perfect stay - the Riad is done up beautifully and is in a great location. Didier, Eric and Aziz were so obliging and made sure we didn't want for anything. My brother and I both had the full exfoliation treatment in the Riad's private hamman and enjoyed the experience immensely. Wi-fi connection was also good.

Small (5 rooms) and central property with exceptional owners and stuff. Booking a taxi through the Riad is highly recommended as it can be difficult to find at first. The initial walk to the medina is worth taking to familiarise yourself with what can be a slightly overwhelming city. Overall, the location, decor and food are all to a high... More

The Riad Houdou is simply great. Didier, Eric, and the entire staff do a wonderful job and pay attention to every detail. The rooms are beautiful, the food is incredible, and the location of the Riad is just perfect. The Riad offers a good selection of incredibly beautiful day trips, too.
