We picked Riad Houdou because the website photos attracted us to it separately. We were so glad to have made this choice. Didier and Eric were perfect hosts and gave us both the privacy and company just when needed . Didier gave us a great personal welcome and rundown of how to navigate the medina and how to interact with...

We arrived on an evening and were greeted by Eric, who offered us mint tea with Moroccan pastries and gave us a good introduction to Marrakech with explanations on what to do and where to go. The riad has a nice courtyard with an orange tree and a small water fountain - very relaxing if you want to spend some...

In the heart of chaotic medina, Didier and Eric have created a paradise that they joyfully share with their guest. Adorable structure, kind and generous staff, creative cook, niche excursion and sightseeing tips. Of refined taste and so much in love with the city and the county to make it their own, the experiences they propose to their guest are...

Beautiful Riad, friendly staff, great stay. Staff even showed us the way to the square in case we get lost in the Medina. Best riad I've been to out of the 5 different ones in other regions of Morocco.

Riad Houdou is the perfect place to stay in Marrakech. The owners, Didier and Eric, are extremely friendly and helpful in every possible way. Breakfast at the terrace was delicious and so was the dinner we shared with other guests. We also had the chance to use the spa and the massage and hamman were wonderful. The place is beautifully...

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.

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.
