All the staff was impeccable, always willing and looking sate all our desires. The friendliness of the owners of the riad, Didier and Eric, the delicious food prepared by Rajid and Aziz's contagious sympathy, made ​​our stay very enjoyable. The location of the riad, about 10 min walk to the Jemaa el Fna, was perfectly acceptable. Our way to the square and back to the riad was easy to find, after a first tour provided by Eric. If we ever return to Marrakesh, I will stay in this riad, no doubt.

Thank you very much Hugo to have chosen our riad for your first stay in Marrakech and for this so kind review. We know that, when we are not used to Marrakech, the medina can be difficult and that's why we always go with our guest on Jemaa El fna, to show the way.
It will be a pleasure to receive you again!

We had a wonderfull stay in Riad Houdou. We were warmly welcomed by the owners. They gave us all the necessary information to plan our city trip in Marrakech, they even walked with us to the place Jemaa-el-Fnaa so that we won’t get lost. The breakfast was very good, the riad is beautiful, the owners and staff extremely friendly. Don’t hesitate to book this Riad!

Service was super at this delightful riad. Even before we arrived, the owners had tracked our plane, realised that it had been diverted to Agadir because of a sandstorm, and rearranged the lovely evening meal to account for our late arrival. And the following day, we were escorted to the main square so that we could find our bearings in this complicated city.

The hotel was a true respite from the hubbub and, when we visited in August, the heat of the medina. As the temperature rose, we would return to the hotel to relax and read around the pool, ready for the evening's outing.

The rooms and the courtyard were beautifully decorated, more a home than a hotel. Breakfast was lovely, with home-cooked Moroccan food.

I'd thoroughly recommend staying at the Riad Houdou; the owners have created a tremendous riad and couldn't be more helpful.

A fabulous riad in amidst the busy streets of the Medina.
The rooms are spotless and designed to a high spec. The bathrooms are beautiful and well-equipped. The whole riad exudes clean cut design against the more traditional features of a moroccan home.
The owners and staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and only fools would miss an opportunity to stay here...I cannot recommend highly enough!

We visited after a friend recommended us for my boyfriends 50th. We arrived early in the morning with a warm welcome and unexpected gorgeous breakfast. After we went straight for a nap! On awakening we were guided to the square, also unexpected. We had splashed out and the room was beautiful, we didn't really want to leave it! It was brilliant to be able to head back to the calm and beautiful surroundings when the busy streets became to much for us. There we would re charge before we'd head out again. it was close enough to be able to do this easily.

I had noticed on the website (though it has now changed) that vegetarians were also welcome. As a vegetarian, I felt VERY welcome, which makes a refreshing change. The meal here was by far the best of my whole trip. (shame it was the first night. Next time I would leave it till the last!) Everyone else also survived with out the chicken! So maybe now it has been taken out of that option...?!

Everyone there, and the surroundings, made my boyfriends 50th one he'll never forget. Thank you!
