“Absolutely outstanding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The numbers say it all: over 430 "excellent" reviews in Tripadvisor, the number 1 restaurant experience in Marrakech... what more can I say? Well, the glowingly positive feedback is all true. This is an exceptional small hotel, designed with meticulous care and eye-for-detail by two very creative Brits (Paul and Aoibheann Hopkins, who we were lucky enough to meet and hang out with on the roof!) and run with equal care and passion by them and their fantastic team, headed by the friendly, super-chic and professional manager, Hanane.

Nothing here is too much trouble. I had a hunch I was going to be in for this kind of experience as soon as I started emailing prior to our trip - the responses were always lengthy, informative and very timely (and friendly too). Having been whisked from the airport, you enter the chaotic, dusty Medina, turn right and then a door with "mk" is ahead of you. Inside lies an oasis of great taste, tranquility and charm.

I loved everything about this place. The food was wonderful - I've eaten in a lot of top places and this was a very solid 1 Michelin-starred standard, which in Marrakech is an achievement (curiously, this city is not the foodie mecca you'd expect). The rooms are beautiful, sporting very high-end finishes and supremely comfortable beds. The view (and sounds) from the roof terrace are amazing, the drinks keep flowing, the pool is super-refreshing, the cinema is a great touch... I did not experience the spa personally but one of our group did and she said it was the best massage of her life.

We took two excursions organised by the riad: one into the Atlas Mountains in a 4x4, visiting an Argan oil co-operative and enjoying lunch in a Berber home; and a half-day learning how to cook Moroccan food with the chef Omar, with a trip to the market, and the communal bread oven, culminating in lunch (our handiwork!) on the roof. Both were organised exceptionally well, and were actually great value for money as well.

If you're visiting Marrakech for a short break, this is the place to go to let somebody else do the organising, relax and enjoy the very best hospitality. Thanks to all, great work, keep it up!

Staff is super friendly, surrounding area is quite and very safe (you don't have to worry about returning to the maison late at night), there is a great attention to details in everything in this place, you even get a mobile phone with a morrocan SIM in the room to use during your stay, in addition to an IPod with a great playlist of music to use in the room (connected to a sound surround system using a docking station) or outside the hotel.

Lovely place,and lovely people.My wife and daughter joined me in a cooking class that was the highlight of our visit, with the evening gourmet meal a close second.
Brilliant place to stay and especially to eat! The cooking lesson was such fun! Really recommended.

A beautiful small Riad with excellence in everything they did for us. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Food, room, ambience and service all without fault. Hanane the Riad Manager is exceptional in her level of care. Thank you Maison MK, we will be back!

I had the pleasure of staying at Maison MK at the end of last year. I loved the feel of the riad with it's very personal service. It is this personal touch that really gives it the edge over it's competitors. Maison MK offer extremely comfortable accommodation with a relaxed vibe. The public areas are really nicely done with ample space for lounging around. The hammam was an experience in itself! And definitely comes highly recommended. As does the delicious tasting menu!
I would definitely return to this beautiful 'home from home' without hesitation.

Staying at the Maison Mk was a truly excellent, special experience. From the moment we arrived to minute we left, the service was impeccable. Attentive but never intrusive, and always warm and friendly. Beautiful, personal rooms with especially gorgeous bathrooms. Amazing lighting and soothing music throughout the hotel lent it an air of tranquility and calm. Having completed the Marrakech Marathon my friends and I were also in need of high quality Spa treatments, which we received to perfection in the small but cozy Spa. A truly blissful, thorough massage and an equally lovely hamam. And, of course: the amazing roofterrace with views of mountains, rooftops, sunsets and sunrises. Returning to Marrakech and Maison MK is not a matter of if, but when.
