the hosts could not do enough the riad was peaceful clean pleasant. they took us into the square and gave us helpful hints which really helped us make the most of our stay. the riad has been sympathetically converted for western comfort but keeps its morracan charm. an absolute diamond for the price
We had a twin room and the beds were not too large(long) and a bit too close to each other
Plus: the staff (all friendly, helpful and smiling); the cozy atmosphere in the Riad; the breakfast (tasty and abundant Moroccan breakfast, with fresh homemade products, slightly different every morning)
I wish we had eaten more dinners at the Riad. There is planning involved - you must tell them that morning at the latest.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this Riad last week and we cannot tell you how lovely the experience was. I highly recommend requesting a pick up from the airport - their driver, Ammen, will be waiting for you and will provide a lovely description of the city if you ask for it. He'll drive you as far as he can go, then a nice gentleman with a cart will walk your bags to the Riad, which is in the heart of the Medina. You'll be welcomed by a staff member (in our case it was the owners themselves, Eric and Didier) and offered a beverage. I recommend the mint tea, obviously. From there you will be taken to your room and given a map of the city, at which point you'll realize that yes, what you read in the reviews is right. You really ARE in the heart of the Medina! Aziz, a sweet gentleman who is the hotel manager, walked us to the main square, making sure to stop every few minutes to give us landmarks and show us how to not get lost. And it worked, we actually found it really hard to get lost after this and we purposely tried a few times. We always knew, "oh that's the way to the square." These are just a few examples of how thoughtful and lovely this Riad is. It's clean, it's quiet, it's beautiful, it's completely worth it. Some more recommendations - I know you'll want to explore the city but you can't beat the dinner you'll have at the Riad, which was better than anything we had in a restaurant. Raja is a real master chef. Ask for the lamb special, it takes 5-6 hours and you'll be given a tour of the ovens, which doubles as the water heater for two hammams. Definitely take the Imlil day tour. You'll be driven by Ammen, taken into the mountains on mules by Hassan and Hamid, Berber locals, and given the most amazing lunch by their families on top of a mountain. It was awe inspiring! In all, it was the perfect trip to Marrakesh and I say you should stop thinking and book it!
I couldn't recommend a stay in this Riad enough. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Riad Houdu is an oasis of peacefulness and comfort in the middle of the bustling medina. Eric, Didier and their team provided us with a warm welcome and were extremely helpful in all respects - the initial walk to the central square to show us the way through the narrow market streets, the organisation of airport taxes and daytrips, shopping tips and contacts, interesting stories and insights, etc.. The breakfast served in the beautiful patio area was delicious, the dinner and live music on Christmas eve were a true event, and the hammam and massage on the last day of our stay were truly relaxing. It was a bit too cool to fully enjoy the roof terrace, but it did offer a great view over the city roofs and the snowcapped mountains of the High Atlas.
Fixed shower head had little or no pressure but the bath and hand held shower head was very good. An excuse to have a bath for a change.
Lovely hosts and fantastic staff. Room was great for 2 adults and 2 children. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had 2 early starts and they had breakfast prepared for us each time.
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.
The beds are slightly firm but this is easily remedied with the blanket provided.
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!
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!
Having to leave:-((
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:-))
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
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.
Excelent location, excelent staff, good breakfast and even better dinner. Highly recommended to explore Marrakesh, especially the Medina.
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!
