Maximé and Mario were very welcoming and the riad was beautiful. Mario even made us a very early breakfast before our departure. Highly recommended!
Maxime and Mario went beyond call of duty to give us a great experience! Their tip for things to do and recommendations for restaurants were awesome (they got really good taste). We travelled with a baby and if we were missing anything they came up with a solution immediately! It was a really good experience!
We really enjoyed our stay at Riad Helen. The airport transfer both ways went very smoothly and was good value for money. The Riad looked exactly as it did in the pictures. The room was very comfortable and efficiently freshened up every day. The neighbourhood was vibrant, safe and within walking distance to the main square. It was also in good close proximity to other shopping areas and restaurants. On the subject of restaurants the ones that Maxime & Mario recommended were spot on. It provided the calm we needed after a day walking and shpping in and around the many souks. Thank you Maxime & Mario for being such courteous & helpful hosts. Also a special thank you to Fatimah who works very hard and she is a very good cook. We had a meal cooked by Fatimah on the last night and it was delicious.
Many Many Thanks for making our break in Marrakech so enjoyable.
One more thing of note. It is rather close to a mosque and therefore you will hear the call to prayer about 5 times a day, the first one is at 5.30 or thereabouts! You do hear them all over the city so I'm sure you'd hear it wherever you stayed. It may be savvy to bring a pair of earplugs for this reason.
Would definitely recommend this Riad.
Riad Helen is an absolutely beautiful riad with a great location in Marrakech medina.
We had a wonderful stay and our hosts Maxime and Mario were very kind and helpful, took time to help us whenever we needed, showing us nice restaurants and booked transport when we wanted to go to touring.
I highly recommend Riad Helene, you can´t ask for a better place!
Staying at Mario’s and Maxime’s home in Marrakech means to have a wonderful oasis to recover after exploring the pulsating life in the Medina. It is a truly lovely place with adorable hosts who care about their guests round-the-clock. Plus they’re really fun to chat with! The riad is filled with wonderful details and lights all around. Besides the food Fatiha prepares is excellent. One shouldn’t miss one of her menus for dinner! The location of the riad is great. On the way to the souks there are many friendly sellers who let you take your time and don’t tout. All in all it was the best choice to stay here and the amiability of Mario and Maxime is probably gonna be one of the first things we’ll remember when thinking of our time in Marrakech. Thank you!
We highly recommend staying here - it is home from home in Marrakech. The Riad is beautiful and Maxime and Mario were kind, helpful and charming hosts with a great sense of humour. They really go out of their way to help you which makes all the difference when arriving in such a busy city. Our room was beautiful, spotlessly clean, and we ate delicious breakfasts and meals there made by the lovely Fatiha. We stayed for four nights and would definitely stay here again if back in Marrakech.
We had a quick but perfect stay at Maxime and Mario. They were very helpful. The riad is quiet and clean, and the breakfast on the rooftop was just wonderful ! I warmly recommend to stay there.
