Marrakesh is a bustling culture that can almost be overwhelming. Thanks to Didier, Eric, and the rest of the staff, my friend and I had an easy time navigating around the Medina. As for the actual Riad, it's very clean, air conditioned, and beautifully decorated. The included breakfast was very good, and our last day we were even accommodated at...

Before traveling to Marrakech, we literally looked at probably 3 dozen riads on TripAdvisor before deciding on Riad Houdou. We absolutely made the best decision.

From the beginning, I had great contact with Didier, one of the owners. We were greeted by the driver and brought straight to the Riad. My family of 5 were welcomed with tea and a fabulous dinner. The accommodations were extremely clean and comfortable. The next morning, Didier showed us around the medina and made us feel very comfortable. We...

Eric and Didier were fantastic hosts - they upgraded our room for 3 nights, our total stay. Everything from the staff to the food to their plunge pool made the visit comfortable. The hammam is a must do.

Eric and Didier have really made this Riad special. I was one of five friends who stayed in two rooms for two nights in June 2015. We all had a great time 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
