My mom and I visited Marrakesh and stayed in Eric and Didier's riad for almost a week. We had the most amazing time! We were received with such enthusiasm: a complementary pot of mint tea and some pastries, a brief tour of the place and a lot of anekdotes and stories about the place. The passion for hospitaility whilst remaining...

A beautiful hotel with wonderful attentive staff. The food was wonderful and they were very conscious of my allergies to tree nuts, peanuts,sesame and coconut. So if you have diet restrictions this is a great place.

This Riad scores great in all aspects: location, staff, atmosphere, helpfulness, clean and secure. It is situated in the medina in an area that is quiet at night but still everything is a short walk. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were here during a cold week but the heating and fireplace took care of it. Also great...

We picked Riad Houdou because the website photos attracted us to it separately. We were so glad to have made this choice.

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.

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.

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.
