“Sensational!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2009

Before travelling to Marrkech with my girlfriend I researched many of the hundreds of riads in the Medina, and found Maison MK to be the outstanding option for a modern twist on traditional Moroccan style, coupled with excellent service, and a great location. We were not disappointed.

Greeted at the airport by the ever helpful Amin, we were whisked through the City walls, and led along the narrow streets to the riad's imposing front door. Jallel, the manager, greeted us with mint tea and cake. Prior to us arriving, they had checked if we had any food allergies, and remembering that I don't eat eggs or nuts, the chef, Nora, had prepared two cakes without these ingredients. They were delicious, as they were every day we were there, and it was a great first impression of the service we could expect. Jallel gave us a tour (i won't spoil it for you, the website is impressive, but the reality is far better), and arranged our plans for dinner that evening. They are relaxed about you eating in, or out, and if the latter, you are in luck. Jallel has an extensive network of contacts in the city, and especially at all the top restaurants and bars (of which there are many fabulous ones to try), and can get you in anywhere, even on the day. He even found me a bar to watch the football in.

Maison MK's great location in the medina meant we could easily visit the Jemaa El Fna square, the Souks, the Kasbah, and various other attractions. We also took a Caleche (horse drawn cart) ride, which was a great way to see the sights. If you decide to spend time in the riad, there is much to do aswell. Whether you fancy shisha, dvds, games, sunbathing, hammam, or massage (my girlfriend said her massage from Hasna was the best one she's ever had), you can indulge, and seemingly at any time - the staff are happy to assist.

Our lasting memories? The views from the roof terrace really are amazing, and breakfast is delicious - best scrambled eggs ever, my girlfriend said. We used the terrace as much as possible, relaxing on the cushions with a drink in the evening or lazing in the afternoon sun. The rooms were also wonderful. Very comfy beds, all the amenities you need, cool music playing, and a great shower. We had the pleasure of being upgraded to the master suite for 2 of the 3 nights, and it is a fantastic room. Above all, the service was terrific, and we are quite fussy guests! Amin even delivered one of the yellow ducks to us after we had departed.

All the staff at Maison MK are wonderful, we can't remember all their names, but Jallel, Nora, Amin, Somi, Layla, Hasna and Paul - thank you so much. You fully deserve the excellent rating you have on Tripadvisor. We will be back soon. Peter and Jen.

We stayed at Maison MK for our Honeymoon at the end of October. We had a truly amazing time and this chic boutique hotel made our stay all the better. All the staff were very attentive without being intrusive and could not do enough for us, the small number of rooms made it feel like we were the only ones there even though we were not!
we were given lots of information on where to go and where to eat and our excursions were all sorted for us without us having to do anything but say "we would like to do.... " they even provided a mobile phone for our use in case we got stuck/lost - and that is very likely in the souks. The food was delicious and breakfast out on the sunny terrace (even at the end of october) was a must!
Being in the centre of the medina was a great location and our trip into the Atlas mountains was fantastic - even having tea at our Berber guide's home. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to all our friends.

We just came back from our trip to Marrakech, we stayed in this hotel for three nights. From the moment we arrived we were greated with mint tea and friendly staff til the last moment we were there it was fantastic. The staff was very friendly, and the manager Jalal was very welcoming great and informative. We will stay in this riad the next time we are in Morroco. I will reccommend it to all my family and friends. Thank you so much for the great service.

If you want to live like a king then come to Maison MK. The pictures on the website however beautiful, do not do this haven justice. Think of the heavenly ambiance of a luxury spa, with calming music piped into all areas , friendly helpful staff and copious amounts of cushions to sink into.

If you are lucky enough to have booked the Master Bedroom, you wake up to the sun gently highlighting a cross crafted into the lovely wooden windows, one of far too many special touches to mention here.

Breakfast on the lovely rooftops overlooking Marrakesh with the mountains in the distance is a perfect way to start the day before you take your life into your own hands traversing the manic streets of the town.

The breakfast consists of tea and coffee, fresh orange juice, with fruit yogurt compote, bread with jams and pastries.

You will find yourself spending time in all of the hotels spaces from the opulence of the camel room, to the dvd lounge where you can't resist but to have a go on the xbox 360. The pool is lovely just after sunning yourself on the terrace.

Don't forget to have a lovely massage, with the pick of the bunch being the Hammans.

Overall if you want peace and tranquility a couple minutes away from the hustle bustle of Marrakesh markets, then this is the place to come. It may be expensive, but it is worth every penny.

We stayed at Maison MK while on a television shoot in Marrakech and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is stylish, fun, friendly and incredibly luxurious. The rooms have Moroccan mobile phones, i-pods, hairdryers, giant plastic bath ducks and delicious chocolates. The masseuse is fabulously good. The manager Jalel and owner Paul are really helpful and good fun and the staff are attentive without being sychophantic. The roof terrace has one of the best views of the Atlas mountains in town - I know because I checked out a load of them for filming.

maison mk looked so wonderful on the website I didn't expect it to be a million times better in the flesh. It really came alive with the fun and friendly staff, beautiful lighting at night and lazy morning breakfasts on the roof terrace. With so many places in Marrakech to choose from , it can be a hard choice... unless you know of this place. Then it's simple. There really is nowhere better.
