Thanks to Mario & Maxime for being auch excellent hosts. The Riad is wonderful and the room exactly as shown. The location is very central but still it's very quiet. Our hosts provided us wi many good tips that came in handy during our stay.
All the best,
Elena & Laurent
Il riad è molto bello, le camere pulite e curate in ogni dettaglio con fiori freschi e petali di rose ovunque. La colazione ottima ed abbondante tutta preparata da Fathia, consigliata anche la cena!! Mario e Maxime sono molto premurosi e disponibilissimi in tutto. La zona è tranquilla e autentica. Spero di tornare presto!
Mario and Maxime are doing one of the best jobs someone can do as a Road-manager. When we arrived after a long flight from Germany we met him at a corner in the Medina you can easily reach, from where he showed us the way to the Riad.
Both of them -Mario and Maxime- alsways answered our questions we had with much more information than we expected, which was a very good (!)
The Riad has 5 rooms but if you think it could get noisy in it, you're wrong: we slept very well and in the morning you get one of the High-lights, which is the breakfast. It is served with fresh orange-juice and a couple of things from the market. Specifically I'd like to thank Fathia, the woman who is cleaning, serving breakfast and keeping the house in a very good condition. She was very helpfull and always had a smile on her face.
Maybe I should also mention the location of the Road: it is very central and you can reach the souks and Jemel el Fna in 10 minutes of walking.
Concluding I would always come back to Mario and Maxime, if I will stay a second time in Marrakech. Thank you guys foa great stay!
The best Airbnb experience I had so far. The riad is simply beautiful, it is spotless clean, nicely decorated and in a very quiet side street just off a busy road in the Medina. The perfect get away after a long day in hot and busy Marrakesh. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful - I miss the fresh mint tea.
Communication with the hosts was great. Maxime and Mario get out off their way to make the stay as pleasant for you as possible - from giving you good restaurant tips, making reservations organising trips.
We had asked for the airport transfer and despite a 2 hour delay our driver was still waiting there. Thanks for that!
All in all, I will definitely go back when I am in Marrakesh next time.
We had a fantastic experience staying at Maxime & Mario's riad. The riad and rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable and the location was great, not too far from the main square yet still in a quieter pocket of the Medina. Maxime and Mario were great hosts, friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying here!
Nous sommes arrivés avec un peu de retard et perdus, Maxime est venu nous chercher très gentiment. Un accueil parfait, plein de petites attentions et le riad est magnifique. Hautement recommandé!!
Das Riad Helen war für uns die beste Wahl in Marrakesch.
Mario und Maxime sind die perfekten Gastgeber, sehr liebenswert, stets hilfsbereit , aber nie aufdringlich. Das Riad verströmt eine ruhige, entspannte Atmosphäre, Orangenblütenduft liegt in der Luft, dezente Musik im Hintergrund, nach dem Trubel der Stadt kommt man hier zur Ruhe.
Die Zimmer sind liebevoll eingerichtet und werden täglich gesäubert. Das opulente Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse ist der perfekte Start in den Tag .
Der Taxitransfer war perfekt und sehr gut organisiert, vielen Dank dafür!
Die Lage des Riads könnte nicht besser sein, die Souks sind nicht weit entfernt und den Djeema-el-Fna erreicht man in 10-15 Minuten.
Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und empfehlen das Riad zu 100% weiter und sagen "Un Grand merci pour tout"!
