It's always a bit of a responsibility when you find the accommodation for a group trip, well I think I have a gold star for booking Riad Houdou!!! The place is amazing. The Riad is beautiful with lots of traditional features, it is spotless and well kept. The...

We stayed as a group of 6 in the Suite aux Epices and La chambre au thé à la menthe (the teapot room) at the beginning of November. Both were exquisitely decorated and furnished with everything we needed including luxury toiletries, towels and hairdryer. The rest of the Riad is no different - traditional to the core but with modern...

Spent a week in Riad Houdou. Beautiful Riad and amazing staff! Felt very safe and welcomed there. Eric and Diddier went out of there way to help us. They recommended us some amazing vegetarian restaurants for us but the best meal by far was the meal they cooked for us at the Riad. Would definitely recommend Riad Houdou!

I stayed at The Riad Houdou during half term and I couldn't fault the service. Didier and Eric went out of their way to be helpful and to make sure that we had the best possible stay. Nothing was too much trouble. If you're going to Marrakesh you MUST stay here!

We visited with our two children and booked the Epices room which was beautiful and had plenty of space for the four of us. From the moment we were collected at the airport we felt safe and looked after. Getting to the Riad through the busy streets of the medina is an assault on the senses but the moment you...

Marrakech was such an amazing experience made even better by Eric and Didier's hospitality. The instructions to get to the Riad were a bit intimidating, but that's just because I didn't fully grasp the insanity of staying in the old medina. It was such a relaxing, tranquil oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of the medina inside the Riad....

My family booked two rooms in Riad Houdou for 4 nights for a family reunion (we are a family that loves to travel). One of our favorite parts of the trip was hanging out in the courtyard and on the terrace of the Riad.

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. Associating traditional architecture and a contemporary furnishing, the decoration of the riad reflects Morocco and our personality. Living on the place, we want to give again all his direction with the concept of guest house. Here, you will discover expatriation all while feeling you as on your premise. ... more   less
