Everything in the Riad Houdou was just perfect. Eric and Didier - the french owners - and their team were just awesome! The Riad is very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with so many lovely details. It is located in the oldtown of Marrakech - the medina - and therefore very close to all sightseeing places. Especially Eric helped me...

We were three girlfriends spending two nights in Marrakech. The hosts Eric and Didier made us feel incredibly welcome from the moment we rang the doorbell of Riad Houdou. After sharing very helpful tips and pointing out points of interest, Eric walked us to Jamaa el Fna (the main square) and carefully pointed out landmarks to help guide us through...

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...

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. We stayed in the Epices room which was large and had plenty of room for my husband and I and our two teenage daughters. Our friends stayed in the Babouche room which was also...

We were greeted at the riad with mint tea and some delicious...

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.
