Had the pleasure of visiting Marrakesh recently with a friend and Riad Houdou was our home away from home. The location of the Riad was one of many reasons we chose it. It is right in the medina which means all the major sights are within a reasonable walking distance but its also located just off a main road so...

Dear Derek, Thank you for this positive review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and the information we gave you.

I am so glad we chose to stay here. The Riad is beautiful and full of character having been restored very sympathetically by Eric and Didier.

My mom and I visited Marrakesh and stayed in Eric and Didier's riad for almost a week. We had the most amazing time! We were received with such enthusiasm: a complementary pot of mint tea and some pastries, a brief tour of the place and a lot of anekdotes and stories about the place. The passion for hospitaility whilst remaining...

A beautiful hotel with wonderful attentive staff. The food was wonderful and they were very conscious of my allergies to tree nuts, peanuts,sesame and coconut. So if you have diet restrictions this is a great place.

This Riad scores great in all aspects: location, staff, atmosphere, helpfulness, clean and secure. It is situated in the medina in an area that is quiet at night but still everything is a short walk.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.

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
