It seems we're not the only ones who enjoyed our stay at Riad Houdou judging by the other guests' comments, and rightly so! Didier and Eric have a beautiful Riad in the Marrakech Medina. You truly feel like you are stepping into another world when you cross the doorway from the hustle and bustle of the medina streets into their...

I enjoyed myself immensely at Riad Houdou. It was an absolute oasis in the middle of the medina. The staff were so lovely and helpful, always smiling. Their smiles seemed genuine too. I would recommend this place to anyone, all our needs were met and the food in the riad was better than some of the restaurants we visited. Thank...

As the other reviewers have mentioned, Didier and Eric go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. When you arrive they serve you a nice mint tea and pastries and spend about 30 minutes giving you an orientation to old Marrakech, before a tour of the Riad and your room. Then Eric escorts you down...

We had a wonderful time at Riad Houdou. The Riad is beautiful and the owners make you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. It's located in the heart of the Medina, but manages to still be a quiet retreat. This definitely became our home in Marrakech. We will be back!

We spent three nights at Riad Houdou and from the time we arrived to the time we departed we were looked after impeccably by Eric and Didier and their staff. The location of the Riad is great, it is inside the medina but in a quiet side street. The orientation delivered on arrival is second to none and everything about...

Stayed 3 nights in this charming Riad with my wife and two teenage daughters. Didier & Eric as hosts could not have done anything more to make our stay more enjoyable. They walked with us from the Riad into the centre of the Medina and back to ensure we knew our way round. They had excellent recommendations for local restaurants....

This place was a perfect escape from the madness of Marrakech made all the better by our hosts Erik and Didier. The Riad - Clean and very quiet located down the end of a laneway and much cooler than outside in the souks or medina. Courtyard was comfortable and shaded by orange trees with a fountain and water feature. There...

Riad Houd was the best place I have ever stayed. The Riad is amazing, the localization is excellent and the service is exceptional.

After arriving in Marrakech I was initially overwhelmed with the craziness of the city. The medina was like nowhere else I had travelled before and we were stumbling trough the streets wondering if we'd made a mistake booking this impulsive trip to Morocco. That was until we found our riad... From the second we arrived our hosts made us feel...

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. 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
