My husband's suprise 50th birthday present was a trip to Marrakech. I spent a lot of time researching riads in the Medina and, as soon as we arrived at Riad Houdou I knew that it was going to be perfect. We were welcomed by Eric, one of the two charming owners, who served us mint tea and took us through...

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. On arrival we were welcomed by Aziz, Eric and Didier three gentlemen who not only amazed us with their attention to detail but to their hospitality, embodying the Moroccan person (even if two of them are French). Between...

The room was good. Most importantly the hosts were very welcoming. We had a request for an early breakfast which was arranged at a short notice. and the breakfast was really nice.

The riad is beautifully decorated and really is a haven from the hustle and bustle outside. It's very conveniently located, very close to the Maison de Photographie and the main square.The room itself was very spacious and a welcome change after sharing a more compact room over the last a few days. We were there for just two nights. We...

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
