“A perfect, truly stylish oasis of calm from which to explore this fantastic city.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

Having stayed at Maison MK last year with friends on our first trip to Marrakech we were already planning our return before we got back home!
This time we booked the whole riad as we wanted the mood to be ours alone (nor did we want to upset other unsuspecting guests!) and we invited four other couples, all related or longtime friends, but some who had not met and none had been to Marrakech, to join us for five nights - well we had a most superb, memorable stay and would not change a thing about it other than to wish we could have been there longer (and that the friends who found this special place last year could have joined us)!
Estelle, the lovely, charming girl who manages the riad is a gem - most helpful with pre-planning, offering great suggestions and solutions with the various plans we made for our guests and during our stay, a great hostess and a real asset to Maison MK.
The staff, as last year could not be faulted and on our second visit it was like being looked after by good friends, whilst they maintained a very professional standard, but still contributed so much to fun we all had, especially on the roof terrace in the evenings!!
The one truly wonderful change this year was the addition of the Gastro MK dining experience - amazing, innovative food from the young chef Omar and a small team from a very small, clinically clean kitchen, but what a big experience for us lucky diners - not a morsel went back to the kitchen - six and seven courses on the two nights we dined, fantastic, imaginative combinations, using the finest ingredients, beautifully presented in the lovely dining room.
On the first evening, after being met at the airport, as we arrived in the locality of Maison MK it was reward enough to watch our friends faces as they experienced the bustle of Marrakech and then suddenly as we were welcomed into the riad, their looks of disbelief - as though we had unexpectedly stepped into another dimension - we know this would be the case with may riads in Marrakech, but especially so with the eclectic style and decor of Maison MK and we'll certainly be back!

We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome at the stunning Maison MK, where we found absolutely lovely staff, a fantastic location, amazing food, great views from the roof terrace, gorgeous rooms... I could go on! All in all a brilliant holiday, made all the better for having such a relaxing haven to return to after a busy day exploring Marrakech. I would definitely recommend the hammam massage at the Maison's spa, and also make sure that you eat in (at least!) one night and sample the food at gastro MK by the wonderful chef Omar. Thanks to everyone at MK for making us so welcome on such a fabulous trip.

There are so many things to be enthusiastic about at MK - the rooms are simply stunning, the roof terrace is wonderful for relaxing and somehow manages to be just a bit taller than everyone else's so the views are gorgeous - we had a candlelit dinner on the highest part for our last dinner and we couldn't have asked for a more memorable occasion - the food at Gastro MK (including the last minute food the kitchen produced when the heavens opened one evening and we didn't want to venture out for our dinner booking) was delicious, the spa treatments are fabulous and there's a hammam available as well as the usual western treatments. The winning factor, however, has to be the staff. Marrakech can feel like a daunting city at times being culturally different and impossible not to get lost in, but the moment the MK door is opened to you by one of the smiley, warm and welcoming staff, you feel you've entered a perfect escape from the bustle, and that has to be thanks to a large extent to the people who make up MK and who were keen to ensure that we had everything we needed for a relaxing "home from home" stay.

Even before getting there you already have a sense of how details are taken care of. With the information Estelle sent us we were able to better plan and enjoy the visit to Marrakech. This romantic escapade was a success. It is in the Medina, near the zouks that made it very confortable when going out to shop and bargain. My wife and I were recieved with freshly squeezed orange juice and the room exceeded expectations. It had no in-room TV and this is one of the reasons why I chose it!
We did not miss any gadgets, though: the wide screen room, the Ipad available for guests 24 hours, and the ipod in the room playing music at our degree were highly appreciated. We also had a hammam, gommage & relaxation massage at the Spa. You should not stay at MK without trying theese. Smiles and help everywhere made it a unique stay that we recommend and will repeat shortly.

Amazing riad in the heart of the medina. The staff are incredible and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. If you are planning a holiday in Marrakech, maison mk should definitely be top of your list! We spent three incredbile nights there and did not want to leave! Every detail was thought out to make us feel as relaxed and welcome as possible.

Looking forward to our next stay!

Maison MK is, in my opinion, total perfection. We stayed in its best suite for 4 nights and had the holiday of a life-time. Its hard to put into words what this place has because we have stayed at many large and small hotels around the world. The staff here just make you feel good, they make everything so easy, and interesting, and all in all that makes for a pretty positive vibe that seems to hang around the hotel. Better home from home if you get my drift, i'd be back in a shot.

We stayed at Maison MK with our two daughters for five nights in late March, and it was a wonderful experience. To say it was an oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh would be an understatement. Estelle and the staff were warm and welcoming, making us feel like we were at home (only better!). They were happy to help us with all of our many requests, and we enjoyed having leisurely conversations with the staff about many topics. We even had the chance to talk with the owner Paul, and it was clear that this unique riad is the product of his deep commitment to providing his guests with personalized service. When it was time to leave, we felt we had made true friends in Marrakesh!

The riad itself has an understated elegance, with a whimsical flair (such as the statue of the camel smoking a cigarette, and the large rubber ducky floating in the indoor pool). It had a Zen spa feel, with rose-petals on the beds and gently scented candles around the bathtubs. We enjoyed having relaxing and scrumptious breakfasts on the rooftop, including homemade Moroccan pancakes and croissants on alternating days, tea by the courtyard pool in the afternoons that included delicious homemade cakes and cookies, and sorbet while sunning ourselves on the rooftop in the afternoons (all of which were complementary). We chose Gastro MK (in the riad) for a special birthday dinner, and it was one of the best meals we have had anywhere. The chef is a true virtuoso!

It was a pleasure to have had the chance to stay at Maison MK, and we hope to come back again in the future.
