“Beautiful riad, perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2009

Couldnt be in a better location, approximately 2 minutes walking from the jemaa el fna on a well lit street. The riad is beautiful - a very well thought out restoration. The courtyard had several comfortable sitting rooms, a smallish but pretty pool, and there is a spacious roof terrace for lounging or meals. The rooms were well appointed with excellent use of accent and indirect lighting and our bathroom had tub big enough for two with more soft accent lighting. There was seamless integration of modern technology, the rooms were fitted with speakers that could play the music from the riad or from our own or their in-room provided ipods. We appreciated the mobile phone in our room (programmed with important numbers) for us to use in case we got lost and needed to call for a ride (fortunately we didnt). Pauline, the manager on for most of our stay, was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. When we arrived the driver was at the airport as promised. The food was good the one night we ate there and they have a reasonably priced wine list, for those who are so inclined. At our request they arranged for a guide our first day, he was friendly and we got a good tour of the medina and not a 'shopping' tour that can sometimes happen. Overall an excellent stay, worthy of 5 stars.

I stayed at Maison MK recently on the first night of a hectic week long tour round Morocco and it was the perfect way to begin the trip. It's located in a charming alley literally minutes from the main square, and everything there is done with the utmost style, from beginning to end. An absolutely delightful, personable stay, topped off with breakfast on the roof terrace in brilliant sunshine. Make sure you have a hammam treatment while you stay...it's pure bliss.

In desperate need of a getaway from London, we decided Morrocco would be ideal for a short break, hot in November and only a couple of hours from London. The minute I came to the Maison MK website www.maisonmk.com, I knew we had to stay there.I'm glad to say it met with every expectation and the service was superb throughout. Paul and Aoibheann (the owners) were so helpful and Pauline (the Manager) made us feel absolutely at home. Pauline even booked restaurants, investigated a balloon ride (which I also recommend www.marrakechbyair.com) and made sure our gin and tonics were kept topped up. The whole experience felt luxurient and I came back to London feeling refreshed, having had lots of treatments in the hotel spa, longs baths in the amazing bath and lots of time chilling out on the rooftop terrace. Thanks for everything - hope to be back!

Maison MK upsides: a) Great location literally 5 mins from the action/main square/souks etc. b) Beautifully designed - some wow factor. c) Really good food. d) Excellent/discreet service. e) Best roof terrace ever.
Maison MK downsides: a) In summer you may want a bigger pool. b) All the rooms are doubles but some only just.

My wife and I really liked this place a lot. It's not cheap, but it's very nice. The breakfasts were very tasty, especially the uber-fluffy scrambled eggs, and our room was very nicely designed. The owner is English and is very helpful.

The riad is quite hard to find, but everywhere in the Marrakech medina is hard to find! The "New Marrakech" area where the big chain hotels are is absolutely soulless in comparison.

This was also one of the few places in Morocco where our wifi worked well!

Random Marrakech tips: it's almost impossible to cash travelers checks. Divide any price quoted to you in a shop by at least three, and bargain hard, with the walking-out-of-the-shop trick always being a good strategic move. Don't drink the freshly squeezed orange juice from the street stalls in the main square, no matter how delicious it looks: the stalls don't wash their glasses properly, alas.

Mary and I spent 5 nights at the MK. The location was perfect, only a few minutes into and more importantly ( after a couple of hours ) out of the souks! Whilst good fun little and often suited us, so to be able to retreat back to the oasis of the fantastic roof garden of the MK was a real treat.
The standard of service throughout was impeccable - Pauline ( manager ) lead from the front and nothing was too much trouble. The food was first class. Hesna in the spa was fantastic - I recommend the 90 minute massage!
We will go back!
