Eric and Didier are the owners and I can't say enough great things about them. They were so accommodating and they are a rare thing to find in riads in Marrakesh, in that they own and live on the premises. I would say a majority of the riad owners may visit once a month but with them they are there...

Thank you for looking after us so well. The service was impeccable, attention to detail, relaxed atmosphere, very good food, good, clean rooms, kind staff. Highly recommend! Also, they organised a great day out for us in the Atlas Mountains where we went for a walk in the lowlands, visited Berber villages and met the locals and ate delicious food.

We keep coming back, this Riad just gets better and better. The staff are excellent, the food is amazing, the rooms are so comfortable, the level of service is better than any 5 star hotel. There is not a single thing I would wish to change about Riad Houdou.

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...

Beautiful peaceful Riad in the middle of magical Medina. Simple, but perfect and decorate with interesting art and photography. Eric and Didier went out of their way, to make sure I felt comfortable, and new how to mission the labyrinth like streets of Medina. I stayed for work and therefor was very happy to notice that wifi worked well not...

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.

I booked Riad Houdou for a visit to Marrakesh with five friends.

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...

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.
