I cannot recommend Riad Helen highly enough. The riad is located on a quiet, pretty street a short walk from restaurants, and we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see quite easily from the riad. It is beautiful from the moment you walk in, with a lovely ambience, especially in the lounge rooms around the edge of...

We had the most wonderful stay at riad Helen in January. Mario and Maxime were great hosts, attentive and extreamly helpful in explaining where to go in marrakech and how to get there. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the riad really is a calming retreat from the craziness of marrakech. We loved spending time in the afternoon up in...

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,...

We highly recommend Riad Helen! Our hosts were so lovely and kind, they really made us feel at home. The space is clean and relaxing. The location was convenient, just a short walk to the main square but tucked away in a quiet area so we had a good night's rest. Thank you for a great stay, 5 stars!

I had a lovely time at Riad Helen. Maxime and Mario were the perfect hosts and Riad Helen was the perfect retreat to return to after a day exploring the sights of Marrakech. Fish tagine on the rooftop was a highlight.

Great continental breakfast and service. Rooms are very clean and quiet. The Jamaa El Fna is about a 10 minute walk. Several excellent restaurants are also nearby. The decor is Moroccan. The Koutoubia Mosque is also about a 10 minute walk away. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
