Riad Houdou made my experience in Marrakech. Didier, Eric and all other staff could not be more welcoming or accommodating, they could not do more for us than they did. Food was INCREDIBLE, both breakfast and dinner, best food we had in Marrakech chicken tagine was amazing as was the carrot and strawberry dessert. Breakfast was always lovely especially on...

I would never usually think of returning to somewhere I had already visited but I honestly can't imagine coming to Marrakech and wanting to stay anywhere else but the Riad Houdou! I stayed here in April with my husband and a couple of friends and returned just recently for a girls' trip with my sister. We were originally attracted by...

Absolutely wonderful riad with a genuine welcome from the wonderful Eric and Didier. Beautifully decorated, and very hands on owners running the riad which is rare! Extremely helpful with escorting me to the surroundings of the riad, even though I go to marrakech often, each location is different. Eric and Didier are attentive to every guests needs. Wonderful oasis in...

The Riad is in (debatable y fantastic location) its in the heart of the medina, just before the souks but down a derb (which is a dead end street) so there isn't much noise. However the souks are quite dirty and can be dangerous if you are women/a woman travelling alone and the streets are hectic and quite dirty and...

Dear Joanne, Thank you very much for this review and to have chosen our riad. We are very happy you liked your stay in riad Houdou. I think it is not true to write medina is dangerous for women.

We stayed as a group of 6 in the Suite aux Epices and La chambre au thé à la menthe (the teapot room) at the beginning of November. Both were exquisitely decorated and furnished with everything we needed including luxury toiletries, towels and hairdryer. The rest of the Riad is no different - traditional to the core but with modern...

Spent a week in Riad Houdou. Beautiful Riad and amazing staff! Felt very safe and welcomed there. Eric and Diddier went out of there way to help us. They recommended us some amazing vegetarian restaurants for us but the best meal by far was the meal they cooked for us at the Riad. Would definitely recommend Riad Houdou!

I stayed at The Riad Houdou during half term and I couldn't fault the service. Didier and Eric went out of their way to be helpful and to make sure that we had the best possible stay. Nothing was too much trouble. If you're going to Marrakesh you MUST stay here!

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
