Riad Houdou was absolutely fantastic. Eric and Didier and the entire staff were friendly, caring, attentive to detail and needs. I forgot my UK/Euro power adapter at home, and they were able to get me squared away immediately. Every request was accommodated in the friendliest and timeliest way. The food was delicious, and consistently better than anything we ate in...

Upon entering a warm welcome, the rooms are clean and comfort, the private hammam is lovely and so clean. The breakfast and food is like if my mommy cooks at home. Eric and Didier are two great guys who will do anything for their guests. A real Moroccan hospitality ;-).

I had a long weekend at riad Houdini. I was so well looked after by Didier and his team. They all went above and beyond any expectation I had. As a solo traveller it was really nice to have friendly faces to return to after the hustle and bustle of the medina. I cannot fault my experience. Thank you

Just returned from a four-night stay at the Riad with my wife. In short, it was one of the best hotel experiences we have had anywhere in the world - I'm sure we'll be back someday.

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.
