just come back from a lovely 2 day break at maison mk - this riad is truly amazing! everything was done to perfection and the rooms were beautiful. we were lucky to get a deal with these rooms and we are so glad we did. the roof top was beautiful and the small plunge pool was a welcome refreshment from the heat.
we loved the ipad that was available to use and also the ipod in the rooms. you were made to feel spoilt and relaxed. the breakfast on the rooftop was also lovely. the staff were very attentive but not overly so which was just what we wanted.
we didnt get a chance to go in the movie room or try the spa (it was fully booked so i would recommend booking in advance). we went to the bains de marrakech and have to say that they were great fun and easy to get to (as we were quite frequently getting lost!)
the bathroom and rooms were so stylish and modern. the lanterns and lights made everything feel very magical. I would definately recommend staying here - never stayed anywhere like this before :)

After having a fantastic time at Maison MK in September 2010 on our honeymoon, we decided to stay again at the end August/start of September. It was great to be back, felt like going home but being on holiday! We were very lucky as they opened a couple of days early so we could fit in a longer break this time. It really is luxurious but not at all snobby like other places we have been. Everything was up to the usual high standard, from the room to the service, and the environment is relaxing. The staff are lovely and knowledgeable. We ate in Gastro MK again and really enjoyed it, I especially liked the banana bavarois! The afternoon tea we had was also amazing, wow, the macaroons were delicious! Then there is the daily cake served in the afternoon with mint tea......mmmmm! We really hope to be able to get back as soon as possible.

I was fortunate enough to visit Maison MK for 2 nights in September 2011 on a research trip to Marrakesh. It can be pretty overwhelming choosing a Riad in the Medina - not only are there hundreds of them, but they all claim to be 'luxury'!! However, the Maison MK team have got it all spot on. Firstly, something that all the best service and beautiful rooms can have little impact on - location. Everything else can be great, but if you're miles from everywhere, it's a bit pointless - and this Riad is in a great location, just a few mins walk from the square, Souks etc - and yet very easy to reach by taxi (access can be a problem for Riads a long way from the entrance to the Medina - so basically Maison MK gives you the best of both worlds). Paul and Aoibheann Hopkins have got the most amazing 'vision' - they have created the most beautiful Riad from a ruin and they've really thought of everything - you get to expereince the Medina in luxury - but not in a way that compriomises the whole expereince of actually being in Marrakesh. In addition, although it's stylish and the service is prefect. it's done in a friendly, relaxed yet attentive way, which doesn't make you feel awkward or overly 'waited on', yet you still want for nothing - and that's a very difficult balance to achieve. I read somewhere that it's style without attitude, and I think this sums it up well. The staff are all super-friendly, polite and can't do enough for you - they really add to your trip and are more than happy to share knowledge and tips with you - you feel they're genuinely wanting you to enjoy being in their town. The Hammam here is a must - great value and a brilliant mix of an authentic experience but with European standards. The roof terrace deserves a special mention - it's beautifully laid out and you're slightly higher than most roof terraces, so it's brilliant for being a nosy neighbour! I was fortunate enough for one of the staff members to point out a huge group of Storks (the official name for a group of Storks is a Muster - I was so impressed I had to Google it! Who knew?!) soaring and swirling around the Katoubia Minaret, really early in the morning - magical. Finally - Gastro MK. Even if - for some foolish reason! - you end up not staying here, you absolutely must book to come to dinner one night for the 'Gastro MK' experience - a restaurant quality taster menu in an intimate private dining setting - open to both residents and non residents - but I'd advise booking early as I think word's starting to spread! I've been very lucky recently in that I've been to some great restaurants in London for work reasons, and this menu was genuinely up there with the best of them, if not better - and is fantastic value for money. Finally, I'd like to point out that, although I was staying at the Riad for work reasons, this is very much a personal review and in no way connected to my job - I really was genuinely impressed and rarely use trip advisor, let alone place a review, as I think reviews are open to abuse from non-genuine reviewers. However, on this occasion, I just wanted to put my personal view out there. Many thanks Maison MK team - I'd love to return and hope things keep going from strength to strength for you.

We would highly recommend a stay at Maison Mk. We booked directly through the Riads website, where you arrange your courtesy pick up from the airport. We wanted some individuality from our stay in Marrakech and certainly got it here. The Riad ensures you ' chill out ' the moment you arrive with fantastic lighting throughout. The rooms are beautiful, we Ipod docks, fantastic bed linen and even better bathrooms. Service at the Riad is great, and cocktails are great on the roof terrace. The food here at Maison Mk is amazing, I guess thats why its Marrakech's No 1 restaurant. Although very disappointed with Marrakech itself . Maison Mk made the break. We took a daytrip into the Atlas mountains and would recommend this to anybody, PLEASE TAKE PENCILS, SWEETS with you as you will meet some local children, that literally have nothing and a small gift is greatly appreciated. Also we took the cooking course at the Riad which was great fun plus you eat what you prepare for lunch.

Maison MK, what can I say wow; we went 2days after they had opened and only had a couple staying at the hotel. My partner and I were staying out side of Marrakesh due to the heat in august/early September time 40 oc +. The welcome we received was brilliant the views from the roof top terrace were/are amazing as it is one of the highest riads in the area; it is like an oasis in the middle of Ramadan chaos. As we were the only guests to be eating at the restaurant we had the 7 course taster menu, of which one course we cooked our own scallops with the chef who trained at Gordon Ramsays restaurant, it was an amazing experience and the chef and his partner were amazing hosts, thank you, it is an experience we will never forget and we hope to be back soon.

Superb all round. Staff are friendly and really try to meet your needs. We loved our room- luxury and the IPod was a great touch, as were the jelly beans left on the bed. The bed was so comfy and the air con was really welcome. The spa was very nice and you get a little bag of goodies with a scrub- mitt afterwards.

PS the cinema room was so comfy... we just locked the door and fell asleep on the chaise longues to the film we chose.
