My girlfriend and myself had a great stay in Marrakech, thanks to Mario and Maxime's hospitality. The riad is beautiful, the breakfast delicious and their advice essential in discovering the vibrant city! Our room had a Moroccan vibe, fresh towels and a clean bathroom. When we come back (and we will!), we'll definitely stay at Riad Helen again!

We really felt the famous Moroccan hospitality during our stay at Riad Helen. It's an incredible place -- lovingly furnished and serves as the ultimate oasis from the bustling Medina. The riad is in a wonderful location: minutes away from the souks, restaurants (Comptoir du Pacha is literally 2 minutes away) and the ATM and exchange. Normally not morning people,... More

Everything about this Riad was perfect. From the moment we booked the Riad, Mario and Maxime were in communication with us, making us instantly feel at ease. Mario was there to meet us from the taxi and we were ushered into a beautiful courtyard, decorated with wonderful lanterns and artwork. Our room was stunning and Mario and Maxime clearly go... More

During our stay on Morocco we came twice to this exceptional Riad in the heart of Marrakesh. What stand out most about this Riad is the love for all the details; From the flowers all over the house, the delicious breakfast with (in my opinion) best 'thé a la menthe' in Morocco to the warm, welcoming and helpful hosts.

We stayed twice at Riad Helen and loved it. The area it just perfect: quiet at night and not too close/far from the square. When you enter, you encounter a beautiful courtyard and seem to be in a different world. Maxime, Mario and Fatima made our stay special. We have stayed in quite a few Riads or B&B in Marocco...

My husband and I stayed here at both the beginning and end of our recent trip to Morocco and we cannot say enough wonderful things about Riad Helen. Centrally located, but also in a quiet area, the riad itself is beautiful and peaceful, with attention to every possible detail. More wonderful, however, are the generous hosts, Mario and Maxime, who... More

If you are visiting Marrakech then stop looking and stay here!
