I was at the riad Helen from September 30 to October 4. It was my first time in Marrakech and the impact was strong from the start. Since I was confuse about the impact having arrived in the evening .. I found myself immersed in a Moroccan reality so present ( not seen tourists !) my confusion is increased.
Everything changed suddenly when Maxime came to pick me and I walked in the door of the Riad Helen .. I met him and Mario . It was like living in a fairy tale . The cozy, clean and "enchanted" . The staff always smiling and helpful ; Maxime and Mario , very professional and friendly , they made me feel welcomed like a family . Thanks to their suggestions I could appreciate the true magic of Marrakech. I felt safe and reassured by their presence available . The rooms with four-poster beds and soft colors are furnished with extreme care. The bathroom linen , always clean and fragrant. ( Also located in the bathroom every comfort and some cocola like rose water ... ;) ))) . Vases with roses and petals scattered , gave a touch of fragrant and delicate.
And what about breakfast ? Really good ! Sweet and salty at will. Different each day , served by Fatiha .. a woman sweet , reserved and always caring ! The breakfast was so filling that I never returned hunger before the afternoon ! ! It was also very nice to find someone who was waiting for us on our return and we wondered how we had spent the day , giving us valuable advice for the next day. After 5 days I went to Essaouira!! But I missed soo much the Riad Helen that I back immediately!! I spend my last 3 days in the Riad Helen.. pacefully as always!!
I would advise everyone to stay at Riad Helen. Even the location was convenient and located just 10 minutes walk from Jemma el Fna and the souks that are above it. Nearby there is an ATM and you always have the opportunity to take a petite taxi! In the end I hope to be back soon to Maxime Mario and Fatiha . I hope to be able to discover all the places , with skill and expertise I have described .... And then feel so pampered is really an ' experience should not be underestimated.It 'was a great experience and if I return to Marrakech, I'm sure that I would choose again the RIAD HELEN. Thanks guys for the great work you have done! So goodbye to everyone and thanks for the wonderful stay ! ..... ;)))
