Didier and Eric, the owners of the riad were absolutely fantastic people, very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Nevertheless, the entire staff was amazing, especially Aziz who was always picking us up (we were 3 girls) at night at the entrance of the medina so that we would be safe on the way back to the...

Riad Houdou is runned by Eric and DJ. They are very friendly and do everything to make your stay comfortable.The Riad is beautifully decorated in Morracon style and every room has an own Moroccan theme. The rooms are cozy, clean and neat. The only disadvantage is that the Riad is on a 15 min walking distance from the Djemaa el...

From booking our stay at the Riad Houdou to leaving, our experience was fantastic. Didier e-mailed us before we arrived asking us if we wanted to book an airport transfer for €15 (we fully recommend you do this as its hassle free) and whether we wanted dinner on the first night or to take advantage of any experiences (hamman, massage,...

Dear Su and Justin, It was really our pleasure to receive you in the riad. And we are very happy to read (thank you for this great review!) you liked your stay. A riad is a small structure and that's why it is more easy for us to give you some advice and landmarks to be independent in the medina....

The owners came down to the road to meet us well after midnight to walk us safely to the hotel. They were extremely friendly and gave us top recommendations for places to visit in Marrakech. They bent over backwards to accommodate us and ensure we had the most fantastic stay.

Lovely little Riad in the heart of the Souq. You walk out of the doors and you are literally in the middle of regular life in the Souq. The managers were lovely and accommodating, the staff all excellent, friendly and helpful. A good place if you are wanting to be in the middle of the action.

Like an oasis in the desert, Riad Houdou is a stark contrast to the noisy, bustling, hot medinas of Marrakech's old quarter.

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
