It was a lovely place indeed! Thank Mario and Maxime for everything you’ve done for us! We had a great time with you. It is worth it to have dinner in the Riad, at least once during your stay. We never had better quality of food elsewhere around the restaurants of Marrakesh

We spent 2 nights at Riad Helen and it made our trip to Marrakesh extra special. We couldn't have asked for better hosts than Mario and Maxime. The room was great.

Beautiful riad, very calm and nicely decorated but it was the lovely guys who run the place which really makes it. They made us feel so welcome and couldn't have been more helpful.

My girlfriend and myself had a great stay in Marrakech, thanks to Mario and Maxime's hospitality.
