Maxime and Mario were very welcoming when we arrived at Riad Helen, they offered us drinks, showed us around the Riad and finally provided us with a map and recommendations for how we should spend our time in Marrakech and where we should eat. We did exactly as they recommended and loved our time in Marrakech and riad Helen! The riad was beautifully presented and the yellow room was lovely, it had everything we needed. The breakfast was also a great way to start the day! Thank you Maxime and Mario! We hope to see you again soon!
Mario was so amazing! I was communicating with him, even before our trip for about two weeks or more. He gave us such great tips and was so helpful throughout our entire trip. He would help us book tours, taxis, etc. I felt so bad for being such a nuisance, since our plans was all over the place, but he never made us feel bad. He would just go with the flow and help us through all our small traveling issues. I am so grateful for that. The riad is so clean, bright and welcoming. Breakfast is served every morning, and if you want dinner, you can let Mario know ahead of time too. The location of the place was so nice. It's on the other side of the huge marketplace, but still in the midst of the medina. It's about a 15-25 minute walk to the marketplace, but you're really close to the souks (where you may get lost for hours). We actually stayed at another riad the first night, because this was booked. This location was so much more relaxed and down-to-earth. Coming from LA, we love down-to-earth places. There's a couple restaurants and shops for water, etc. around the corner too. Everything was always clean, and stocked with toothpaste, toilet paper, etc. I would recommend Mario and Maxime's riad any day, any time. I loved our stay here!!
Such a lovely riad in Marrakesh! Room is more beautiful in real life, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. We stayed in the 'yellow room'. Amazing touches that you don't find any in other riads, like laundry soap and toiletries that are so helpful when travelling for a few weeks in Morocco. Wanted to stay another night but was fully booked!
Hosts were so helpful, greeted us with tea and hand drawn maps of the area that came in very useful. Full of tips and extremely helpful with suggestions for spas, restaurants etc. A+! Would highly recommend.
Un ryad simple et harmonieux dans un quartier authentique et proche des souks et de la ville nouvelle.
Deux hôtes à l'accueil chaleureux, à l'écoute cordiale et à la disponibilité permanente.
Une cuisinière talentueuse à l'amabilité réjouissante.
Une chambre confortable et propre.
A conseiller sans restrictions.

Lovely little riad! We couldn't be happier with the way we were looked after during our stay. The room was cleaned every day and presented like a 5* hotel with petals on the bed! Marino and Maxime helped us with directions, getting taxis among other things. Good location and the locals who work on the street close to the hotel are all friendly. The Henna cafe is a great place to go! Thanks Mario and Maxime!!
Riad Helen was one of our favorite places to stay - it is beautiful, located centrally but just tucked away enough to be tranquil, and impeccably clean. Fatiha's breakfast which we had every morning on the rooftop terrace was delicious - and Maxime & Mario are by far the most welcoming and helpful hosts we have come across. Thanks for an amazing stay! Highly recommended.
I just had a fantastic 2-night stay with Maxime and Mario at this riad. The riad was well-located within walking distance of the main square and the souks. The room was bright, clean, fresh, and quiet, overlooking the beautiful and peaceful atrium. The rooftop was also a relaxing place to enjoy the sun or stars. The breakfast was definitely generous and filling (five kinds of bread, a basket of fresh fruit, yoghurt, an egg, and all the traditional Moroccan sides, like honey, orange juice, and mint tea.
The best part was Maxime and Mario who went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable and hassle-free. They helped me figure out which bus station my night bus to Fez left from, welcomed my brother and his girlfriend (who were staying at another riad (one that wasn't as nice, we all agreed!) to hang out on the roof deck with me in the evenings, and let me check out late/hang around the riad until my bus left.
I would definitely recommend this riad to anyone staying in Marrakech.
