HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

I haven't stayed elsewhere in Marrakesh, but I doubt you will find similar accommodation that overall is anywhere near as good as this one. This is primarily because the owners (Eric and Didier) and their staff, treat you as a guest in their house. It's centrally located just a short walk from the main square but more importantly the riad...

We absolutely enjoyed everything about Riad Houdou, starting with our initial contact. Eric and Didier, the co-owners and both French natives, were both very attentive and responsive to our email questions and inquiries. They even arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport, and adapted when our flights were delayed a full day. None of this changed when...

We had the good fortune of spending 3 days at Riad Houdou - we thoroughly recommend it. Everything is as promised - the service is friendly and genuine, the Riad itself is elegantly furnished - it truly is an oasis of tranquility, that is much needed after a day out adventuring the Medina. The breakfast is delicious- many hand made...

From the time we booked to the time we left we were made to feel at home. It was great to get collected from the airport from a taxi and then a cart to the hotel as we wouldn't have found the Riad. Welcomed when we arrived with tea. It was good the first morning after arriving to be shown...

We have just returned from an amazing week in Marrakech and our stay at the Riad Houdou was excellent. Didier, Eric and their staff were so welcoming and they were the perfect hosts throughout our stay.

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
