“Better was impossible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

I can´t say that the choice of Riad was easy. We visited many Riads on the website in fact were almost all very beautiful.. Fortunately I ended up making a correct choice, selected in the centre of the Medina and Souks. This Riad have one excellent location. The price is very good for the quality they offer as they try to help with everything and create a service five stars, giving the rest and confort to the guest's researching and helping to arrange everything. They offrer a mobile phone during your stay in case you get lost or if you hav any doubts. Undoubtedly important when you are in the middle of no where.
They were excellents hosts what that made ​​our stay much more confortable. I am very grateful to them. I also advise to diner at Riad is very good food was the best we did eat in Marakech, the cooker is excellent and its not expensive. We have to give them a VERY BIG THANKS because we caught the fly home early in the morning at airport in Casablanca. They rent a car, they drive and leave us in the check in at the airport. like said at begginig, better was impossible

Hi Diogo,
Thank you so much for your review on TripAdvisor. We wish we could answer you in Portuguese but we are not so sure of ourselves ! Maybe we will try to learn some words for the next time we'll see each other.
We are both delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Riad Helen, and we have to thank you again for your cheerfulness. It really was a great pleasure to receive you in our house.
Please convey our best wishes to Elsa.
Take care of you two.

We had the most wonderful time at Riad Helen. The owner Dominique is very friendly and extremely accommodating. We were so comfortable it felt like we'd lived there for years. The food we ate was beyond amazing and we were constantly delighted by our meals. The Riad is superbly decorated and has a very Moroccan feel to it. I can't recommend it enough and I really hope to visit again soon.

Room Tip: We had a look around the Riad and all the rooms are of the same high standard!
