We have just returned from an amazing week in Marrakech and our stay at the Riad Houdou was excellent. Didier, Eric and their staff were so welcoming and they were the perfect hosts throughout our stay. The courtyard area was peaceful and it was the ideal place to relax amongst the orange trees after a day out exploring the Medina....

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 children aged 11 and 8. The hosts (Eric and Didier) were very kind and helpful. Before we travelled, we felt nervous about the number of Riads, and we were not sure if we had booked the right one. But as soon we we arrived to the airport, everything ran smoothly. We...

Simply put, and as noted by the numerous positive reviews, this is the best place to stay in Marrakech! Eric, Didier, Abdel, Aziz, & the rest of the staff are fantastic hosts. The pick-up and transfer from RAK (highly recommended) were flawless with the orientation walk with Abdel to the main square much appreciated. The meals at Riad Houdou deserve...

Riad Houdou was a welcome oasis from the noise and bustle -- and heat -- of Marrakech. This small French-owned hotel offers great hospitality from the moment we walked in. Actually the hospitality began before we arrived, with excellent advice on how best to negotiate the confusing medina. The Riad is only 2 minutes walk from where a taxi will...

Riad Houdou was the perfect place to start our trip to Morocco! Eric and Abdel went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay!

Everything in the Riad Houdou was just perfect. Eric and Didier - the french owners - and their team were just awesome! The Riad is very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with so many lovely details. It is located in the oldtown of Marrakech - the medina - and therefore very close to all sightseeing places. Especially Eric helped me...
