“A luxury oasis within the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2009

Three friends and I recently stayed at maison mk and had a fantastic time. I had read a review of maison mk in the Sunday Times travel magazine and then looked at the website and contacted Paul, the owner, who was extremely helpful in answering my many questions and emails. It was priced above our initial budget but we were pleased that we spent the extra to stay here as it is very stylish and is finished to a high standard, with attention to detail. As four females we were a bit apprehensive about staying in a riad within the medina, but we were so pleased that we did opt for a luxury riad rather than a hotel as it was more authentic, the service was more personal plus we were lucky enough to have the whole riad to ourselves and took full advantage of the stunning roof terrace for sunbathing, relaxing and enjoying drinks. We also enjoyed spa treatments including hammam, gommage and massage. The relaxation massage was one of the best I have ever had and I would highly recommend it. Maison mk is ideally situated for exploring the medina and the main square, and has amazing views at night of the Koutoubia mosque. It is also only a short walk to take a taxi to restaurants in the new town, and there are also several good restaurants within a short walk. Le Tobsil was our favourite, and a member of maison mk staff escorted us to the entrance of the alley where we were met by a member of Le Tobsil's staff. We felt safe in Marrakech and found people very helpful when we asked for directions. I would highly recommend maison mk to those looking for luxury accommodation and good service within the medina.

Maison MK is a beautiful Riad which is made better by the managers. We only met Aoibheann but she was really helpful. The attention to detail was great - from the mobiles you can take out with you, the ipods, the coffee waiting outside the room every morning to the large duck in our bath. Breakfasts were amazing and i had the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted.

Downside for our stay was that we were the only people staying there... I guess out of season, but it was odd having the place to ourselves (& I think they should perhaps have upgraded us to the Master Suite as a result which was sat empty the whole time with it's door open flaunting it's luxury to us every time we went to our suite).

The location of Maison MK is truly fantastic - a 1 minute walk and you're in the main souks and under 5 mins to the square...

We chose the Maison MK from reviews that we had read as well as after looking at their website. It was our first visit to Marrakech but we had stayed at excellent riads in Rabat and Fes. Maison MK turned out to be an ultimate riad experience with a beautiful, comfortable design with much attention to details; attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff and a wonderful location in the medina. Breakfast on the roof as well as a drink there after our very busy days gave us the opportunity to meet and talk to other guests in the riad. We stayed there four nights and were sorry to leave.

My husband and I have just come back from a 3 days stay at Maison MK. What can I say: A truley wonderful experience. Starting from the the advise, help and support we received from Paul weeks prior to our arrival to the help provided by Pauline and Jallel once we were in Marrakech. They organised wonderful guided tours and restaurant bookings for dinner in excellent locations. Keep in mind high quality comes at a price...surely not a cheap weekend, but entirely worth it!!!
About the riad: it trluey is just 2 minutes away from La Place and the Souks, and has an amazing terrace for yummy breakfast and relaxing sunset G&Ts.
We stayed in the master suite and simply loved the romantic setting and supercomfy bed.
For our last night Jallel cooked us a private candel lit dinner with wonderful food and wine.
A must before you leave: a hammam and relaxing massage in Maison's tiny spa... great for your body and soul!!

We are just back from a 5 night stay at Maison MK. We can't recommend the riad highly enough.
The location is perfect - just 3 minutes from the Souks and a further 2 minutes from the main square, yet when you sit on the rooftop terrace it's like you are somewhere completely different, totally detached from all the hustle and bustle.
The interior of the riad is decorated and maintained to a high standard. The staff are attentive, yet discrete - they maintain a good balance of always being there to help but never intruding. Every day one of the managers, Jallel or Pauline, checks to see if there is anything that they can organise for you - trips, resturants, taxis etc. Everything we asked for was organised well.
We used the spa and had a massage and a hammam, both of which were wonderful.
We also took a trip to the Atlas mountains which was organised by the hotel. This is a great day out which we can thoroughly recommend.

Can't praise this wonderful friendly Riad enough - if you eat in the food is excellent, options for sitting on the roof looking at the views (we were lucky enough to have the classic backdrop of the snowy Atlas Mountains), staff ultra-friendly

If you can afford it, book it

That's not too much I can say that hasn't already been posted on this page. I really want to say that this place is brilliant. It's the perfect blend of decadent and relaxed. The staff were incredibly helpful and charming. The massages, champagne, orange juice and world's comfiest bed were my personal highlights. The bath in our room was bigger and better than anything I've ever been in before. Highly recommended!
