“an oasis in the souk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

we spent a week at maison mk exploring marrakech and surrounds, the staff were exceptional as was the decor, comfort level and food. we did a cooking course for a day and learnt how to make a tagine, and i must say we didn't taste a better one during our whole trip! if you are wanting some luxury and a relief from the maddenning crowd of the souks you must stay at MK. It was full sweet traditions like a cake and mint tea each afternoon at 4pm and cocktails on the terrace next to an open fire ( it was winter!) for the sunset at 5;30pm, champers in the eexclusive home theatre watching a classic film, as well as breakfast of fruit and pastries watching the snow capped atlas mountains and the city start it business for the day.
they helped organise day trips for us to berber villages and the degistation menu was simply the best meal we had there - as for price the 2 of us clocked up a bill which was 30% less that what we expected for alcohol, meals (at least 5 apart from the free breakfasts), 2 day trips and the cooking course...so i couldn't recommend it more highly

Room Tip: just check the website ech room has a different colour scheme all are wonderful

We looked at several of the best riads for our 4 day holiday in Marrakech, but Maison MK was by far the most impressive from the first moment. Quick email responses, thorough & detailed answers, helpful suggestions and advice - all helped us feel in really safe hands.
When we arrived, the same attention to detail on every aspect of Maison MK was apparent. The riad is beautiful, stunningly beautiful - a mix of contemporary and designer, but also with an ancient solid underlayer.
Our room was so pretty & romantic with the most amazing bathroom.
The staff looked after us so well - they were there when we wanted them, and melted into the background when we didn't need them - perfect unobtrusive service. Hanane, the manager, was so good - full of tips & information and always a big smile.She genuinely seemed to want us to have a great time. All the other staff, from breakfast until late at night were chatty, helpful & smiling. What a great place - they have made the perfect holiday hotel. We can't wait to come back very soon.

Lovely hotel where the staff appear to anticipate your needs. There are lots of little things that made it perfect for me, too numerous to mention such as the afternoon tea and cake, coffee outside the room in the morning, the chill-out music, free money exchange, phone, ipod etc. The room was very good and quiet (room 3). Food was very good - and they made our dinner special (probably the best in Marrakech) by providing us with a private room.

We came to Marrakech during New Years - and it was very, very busy. Situated just on the outskirts of the souks and a short walk from one of the Medina gates, stepping in to Maison MK was like entering an oasis. It is calm, beautiful (except for the rubber ducks...?) and the attention to detail is perfect. The excellent breakfasts (the Morrocan pancakes are addictive!) up on the roof terrace, the hospitality, iPods and mobiles to use, coffee outside the rooms on a little tray in the morning - everything adds to the ambiance. As for the restaurant - we went there for New Years Eve and there was a set menu. We got a bit dissapointed but New Years Eve is not the best night to judge a restaurant. But the spa....ah we loved it! The hamam was heaven and also the massage. As for booking restaurants, outings, guides etc - Hanane (the manageress) made a great job. And always with a smile. The whole staff was extremely nice.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good and 5 of them face the courtyard. They are a bit noisy so bring ear plugs an...

We stayed for three nights at Maison MK at the end of November. It surpassed all our expectations. The location is brilliant for exploring the Medina, but, once inside the riad, you can relax and leave the madness behind. What truly lifts this riad above others is the level of service and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and attentive staff, who made us feel so welcome. Afternoon tea, brilliant breakfasts, ipods, rose petals and a smoking camel...Mk Maison had it all. We will be back in 2013 and unreservedly recommend it to others.

I stayed at Maison MK for 5 days, I had a lovely time. I stayed in room 6, the room was perfect, the bed was very comfy, there was everything to suit your needs in the room. I particularly enjoyed using the iPod speakers in the room to play music! Breakfasts were fantastic. Each day it alternated between French and Moroccan style breakfasts. The Moroccan mechouia - (similar to pancakes) were delicious, and the freshly squeezed orange juice was great. I enjoyed sunbathing on the terrace with the lovely views, and when I was hot, it was nice to take a dip in the pool. Lunch was great, the beef skewers were delicious, and as with the breakfast the service was wonderful. It was nice to be able relax after a long day shopping and watch a movie in the cinema room, with some popcorn and a milkshake!
Overall, the Maison MK was very welcoming and had a calm relaxing atmosphere, I loved my stay.
