The owners Didier, and Eric were wonderful hosts. The staff was excellent. Whatever we wanted, was just an ask away. The interior was lovely. i couldn't ask for anything better.
absolutely everything ; ) eric and didier try to fulfill every wish you have perfect hotel, if you want to discover the medina of marrakech, you get the best support from booking to arrival until departure and don't forget to try their kitchen! dinner is great ; )
The owner of the riad are extremely nice people and they were very helpful throughout our entire stay (3days). We booked an airport transfer with them. Even though it is a bit more expensive that a normal taxi, it is very useful because riad is inside Medina and there is no car access to the building. Instead we were dropped off at the nearest square and then a guy with a cart took us to the hotel door. We were offered mint tea and sweets upon arrival. One of the owners, Didier, explained us everything about Marrakech, where to go, what to avoid, local habits, etc. he also walked us to the main square, which is very needed if its your first time in Marrakech. The streets are really narrow and there are a lot of turns. But we got used to iit very quickly. Wifi worked perfectly. Breakfast was very good. We didnt try the dinner at riad, but i imagine its quite decent too. Room wasn't very big, but it didn't bother us much.
Wonderful welcome, beautiful decor, excellent food, great supper companionship, attentive hosts, comfortable accommodation, perfect location.
Everything was perfect, the decor is amazing. Such attention to detail. Staff were warm and friendly, very comfortable atmosphere. Must have dinner at the riad , so tasty and well presented. Thank you Eric and Didier for being such fantastic hosts xx
Owners and staff
We had a fantastic short break at Riad Houdou. Didier and Eric were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely meal at the Riad on our first evening. Eric helped to orientate us on our first day. As for Morocco well expect every sense to be heightened, the sights, the sounds, the smells!! We both thoroughly enjoyed our short break.
Incredibly warm owners who make staff and guests feel like family. They will go out of their way to make your trip a memorable one and are very knowledgeable about places to eat or visit. However a meal at the Riad is not to be missed - great company and food (including delicious vegetarian food). We hope to return to their tranquil courtyard again soon!
The beds are slightly firm but this is easily remedied with the blanket provided.
Staff, location, ambiance, meals. Everything about Riad Houdou was tops. It would be our first choice for a return trip.
A great location only about ten minutes from Jemaa el-Fnaa. Either Eric or Didier will walk with you to the Square and help you with some basic location information and great recommendations. Breakfast was a wonderful treat in the beautiful courtyard and after a day walking around Marrakesh a cool drink on the roof terrace a luxury! Thank you all!
Wonderful place. Didier, Eric and all staff are warm, welcoming and obliging. Riad is beautifully decorated, rooms are lovely, comfortable and clean, great breakfast, terrace with views. Staff ensured we could find our way around Marrakech and gave tips on sightseeing, restaurants, getting around etc. wonderful place to stay in Marrakech. Highly recommended.
Eric, Didier and their team were wonderfully helpful, efficient and always friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious in the glorious patio area and an evening drink on the roof terrace offers great views over the city. Our hosts walked us to the main square and were a font of great tips and information. Thank you!
I've been to Marrekesh 4times, this riad was the best by far:-) it was in a great location! The food was amazing better than any 5star resturant:-) Eric and diddier were very welcoming and made my stay very happy. The hamman and massage were amazing omg I definetily reccomend them:-) I will definetily return:-))
Having to leave:-((
Warm welcome (even to our lively children!) Laid back Fantastic, fresh food Knowledgeable, friendly hosts and staff Beautiful decor Close to all the sights Scents of orange blossom Dinner incredible
Excelent location, excelent staff, good breakfast and even better dinner. Highly recommended to explore Marrakesh, especially the Medina.
The room had air conditioning, but it was still a little hot at night (it was on the top floor, and it caught the sun all day long). Apart from that, nothing, really.
My husband and I stayed at this Riad and were impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the owners and staff. Didier and Eric made every effort to make sure we had a memorable stay in Marrakech. This place has a lot of personality and warmth. A fantastic place to stay!
Didier and Eric are extremely professional and can advise on all questions you may have about marrakech. The staff is the kindest we have come across yet. A special mention for Aziz, who is an absolute sweetheart.
There is no need to look for another place to stay in Marrakech. This is simply the best. We loved everything about it and the owners, Eric and Didier and the staff is absolutely amazing.
Eric and Didier were fabulous hosts and we enjoyed their helpful advice and the fabulous food at their Riad!
Didier, Eric were the most incredible and gracious hosts we have come across with their excellent team. Delicious meals cooked by Raja and very accommodating to dietary requirement (coeliac/gluten free and vegetarians) as well as all our other needs. Every detail had been thought of, beautiful Riad decor with amazing scents in the room and courtyards. Close to main square and handy to a Medina gate. Would highly recommend this Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech, really don't think you could find a better experience.
Absolutely nothing at all.
Riad Houdou was, by far, our favorite riad in Morocco. My traveling companion & I both felt that the owners, Didier & Eric, were exceptional in all ways! They are super approachable and fun people, they always had the time to give advice & great suggestions, and they truly are perfect hosts! The riad itself, is very beautiful, and the staff are amazing! Raja, the chef, makes THE most delicious & exotic food, the best we had in all of Morocco, (you will gain weight, be forewarned!) and H'aziz, a true gentleman! The "extra" touches were all so appreciated and sweet! And it was also nice having wine & cocktails available if one wanted, being in a Muslim country. Voila!
Excellent hosts, very welcoming and helped us with every aspect of our trip. I'd highly recommend the food at the Riad too :)
Air con didn't work in our room. Efforts were made to fix this, but we left before this could be resolved. We were given a fan by the hosts which helped greatly!
The staff at Riad Houdou were brilliant - they were incredibly helpful, always polite and couldn't do more to be of use to us. The location is perfect for sightseeing. The accommodation is comfortable and very clean.
Lovely owners and staff that made you feel welcome
Very friendly, excellent room and great location. Couldn't ask for anything more! Thank you
