If you're looking for a boutique hotel experience in Marrakech, this is it! Emily (the manager) is absolutely fantastic and was so helpful in guiding us through a great couple of days exploring Marrakech and was actually amazingly helpful in giving us tips regarding our travels throughout the rest of Morocco! Every member of the staff is so friendly as well - especially Simo!
Definitely make a reservation to eat at Gastro MK and do not stay here without booking a cooking class! We had a fantastic time learning how to make a tagine, homemade bread, and a wonderful Moroccan vegetable salad. The location is also fantastic because you can walk just about anywhere to go and see the major sites (especially the souk and Jemaa el Fna square). And don't forget: the splash pool in the courtyard is meant for swimming! It was such a treat to jump in and float around during the 110 degree (43 C) heat wave.
As for the rooms: check out the website and request the one that speaks to your personality. We stayed in Room 2 with a bay window looking into the courtyard and loved it. Emily was kind enough to give us a tour of all the other rooms and believe me, all of them are great so you can't really go wrong!
Even though we only stayed here for 3 nights it felt like home... so much so that we came back here at the end of our trip to spend 6 hours freshening up, visiting the spa, and having a farewell dinner on the roof before going to the airport.
The only critique I have of this place is that the spa massage is a tad disappointing. The Moroccan bath/scrub was great but the massage portion left a lot to be desired. Especially after driving for hours in a car through the mountains...
