Maxine and Mario were incredible hosts. We felt extremely well taken care of. Every morning there is a beautiful breakfast prepared, and your room is cleaned. Mario even took the time to show us around town in 114 F degree weather, which was extremely gracious. We also did the cooking class and highly recommend it, the food was amazing and lasted us for 2 days. This was one of the best air bnbs we have ever stayed in, thank you.

A fantastic place to stay. Maxime, Mario, and Fatiha (the fantastic house chef) were truly wonderful and warm hosts. Not only is the space and rooms every bit as stylish and inviting as the pictures would suggest, but all the details of this accommodation are put together with great taste and care. Maxime and Mario provided great advice for activities, sights and eating out and the Riad itself is located walking distance to so much of Marrakech's most beautiful sites and wonderful food--walking distance to Ben Youssef Medersa, Marjorelle Gardins, and Badii palace alike. Upon arriving they will give you a customised hand drawn map indicating their recommended experience of the city. Not only was the map simpler and easier to follow than most of the medina, but all their recommended places of interest were terrific. If you book with Riad Helen also be sure to inquire about cooking as a student for the afternoon with Fatiha,the house chef. She was a warm and lovely teacher and the food was exquisite. Finally it must be mentioned that the daily complementary breakfast will spoil you. Each morning we were treated to coffee, traditional mint tea, orange juice, yogurt, fresh fruit, pastries, fresh alternating Moroccan breakfast fare, and delicious fried eggs. We will certainly be talking about this highlight to our trip for quite some time. Cannot recommend enough.

Mario and Maxime are fabulous hosts. The Riad is beautiful, well kept, very clean, open, airy and very comfortable. We stayed there for 10 days. Every day breakfast was a little different and there was so much food - breads, fresh juice, pancakes, fruit, coffee etc. One morning when it was cold up on the terrace for breakfast, Fathia brought up a small fire pot to warm us up and slippers for our feet. We ate dinner there twice and Fathia prepared a delicious meal for us, especially the eggplant. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh rose petals sprinkled about. A sweet touch. We were even able to get laundry done and Mario made me a tray of bottled water ice cubes!! The attention to detail and kindness is 5 stars. The location is great - a quiet and safe neighborhood a short walk to the craziness of the souks. This is a great place to stay. Mario and Maxime are so accommodating and helpful. We missed all the special touches when we moved on to our next destination. Highly recommend staying with Mario and Maxime. Hope to be back soon and stay again. Thanks for everything!!

Maxime and Mario were amazing hosts, the listing info was very accurate. I highly recommend this listing (or any of the other listing in Riad Helen) to anyone planning on staying in Marakech! Maxime and Mario were very helpful in sharing information about the area, such as places to see, restaurants, and activities. The rooms were very comfortable, very clean, and were professionally cleaned very day. The complementary breakfast each morning was fresh and delicious. The rooftop terrace and common areas in the Riad are beautiful. As a guest, you have complete freedom to enter the Riad (and of course your room) whenever you like. This Riad is in an amazing location, right in heart of the Medina. 5 stars across the board!

First time using Airbnb, first time in Marrakech, first time staying in a Riad, and luckily for me, was an amazing experience for all 3. As hosts, Mario and Maxime were nothing short of phenomenal. Friendly, helpful and genuinely good people, they went far beyond the standard restaurant suggestions and travel tips, and helped make this trip as enjoyable as humanely possible. To catch my outgoing flight, I had to get a taxi at 4:20 AM and Mario not only scheduled one and helped make sure I didn't get fare gouged, he even woke up and escorted me to the cab, what a gentleman! Fatiha was just as amazing, she not only made sure I had everything I needed each day (shampoo, body lotion, toothpaste, all provided for), but she even went out of her way to help walk me to the Jardin Majorelle (absolutely stunning, a definite place to visit if you like pretty things) and even helped me bargain with locals. Honestly the 3 of them were such a huge part of what made my trip great and that's nothing like what I've experienced at a hotel before. Now as for the actual living space, terrific as well! Part of the wonder of Morocco for me was how you could walk down seemingly endless busy streets (very busy, and I thought New York sidewalk traffic was bad), but once you step in through a door, you're transported to a tranquil space, far removed from the hustle and bustle outside. Riad Helen has a great layout of 3 floors (rooftop is gorgeous and where you're served breakfast each morning). I stayed at the room at the end of the 2nd and it was just so cute, with its stone floors and walls, paintings and beaten metal sink. The bed was comfortable and big enough for 2, and because the location is tucked away from the main road (it seems confusing at first, navigating the streets, but it gets way easier after your first time) it's quiet and serene at night. There is a mosque nearby which means at around 5 AM each day there is a call to prayer, but it doesn't last too long and my boyfriend never even heard it all 3 nights we stayed there (though he is a deep sleeper). The location was also convenient as you're about a 10 min walk away from the Jemma el-Fnaa square and the souks which are above it. An ATM is nearby there and you always have the option of taking a petite taxi (try not to pay more than 20 dirhams!). In any case, Morocco is beautiful, the place was great, andI cannot wait to get a chance to come back.
