    Just wonderful

    Wonderful stay, made to feel really welcome. The staff, like the Moroccan people, we're very welcoming, warm and generous with their attention. The riad is right in the heart of the Medina, but is an oasis of calm and tranquility. The whole place has been created to a very high standard. We loved our stay at Riad Houdou.

    The property has lots of character and very quirky the dining room and common area was cold and not comfortable but heaters in the room was a good thing If choosing this location be prepared for 20 min walks to find where you can drink any alcohol we were told about the alcohol restriction in the welcome e mail but not the Expedia description when we made the booking Can not fault the staff for being welcoming and helpful Not clear in the description but they only accepted cash for extras which could have been a problem just a couple of points that could help future guests .

    This is one of the best experiences you could have in Marrakech. Right in the Medina, such a perfect location. The staff were amazing. This should be a 6 star resort. Lots of riads to choose from ... This has to be one of the best.

    Best service and stay from a none

    Fantastic week stay. The level of service and attention we were given from first moment of check in to the date we left was exceptional. Great riad with lovely courtyard perfect for dinner and service from all the staff was as good as anything we've had before. Dont stay anywhere else in Marrakesh

    Houdou means "serenity" in Arabic.

    You leave the overwhelming smells, sights and sounds of the souks, down a small alleyway, through an unassuming door, and into the most peaceful and tranquil oasis in the middle of the medina. The proprietors care deeply about your experience in their home and world. Take all their advice and you won't regret it. Immerse yourself in an experience you won't soon forget.

    Memorable Marrakech Riad experience!

    Lovely, lovely Riad in the heart of the Medina, a ten minute walk to Place Jamaa El Fna. Eric, Didier and their entire staff are hosts extraordinaire! The refurbishment and decorations of this historic Riad are incredible and creative. Everything from the breakfast on the terrace, the hammam experience, the apertif time, and exquisite Moroccan meal preparation created a most memorable vacation for us!
