Bedrooms are decorated using typical Moroccan items with a modern twist, full of atmosphere & character. We stayed in the Fez room... very comfy beds, plenty of storage space and a traditional Tadelakt shower room with...

Marrakesh is a rather hectic place to be - particularly in the medina - but Riad Houdou provides a wonderful calm in amongst it all. Eric and Didier are really helpful and friendly as are all the staff. They speak excellent English though the main language is French. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated imaginatively. The details are lovely....

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.
