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.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

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 .
