My partner and I stayed at Maison MK in July to celebrate my birthday. We didn’t want to leave. Maison MK is, quite simply, one of the best hotels we’ve ever stayed at – an oasis of warm colour, stylish interior design, impeccable service and an attention to detail, all within a stone’s throw from the wonderful, frenetic Djemaa el-Fna.
The owners have done an outstanding job turning a crumbling old riad into a beautiful boutique hotel!!
From the supremely comfortable bed and enormous tub in a polished tadelakt bathroom to the ambient lighting, fresh coffee outside your door each morning, ipod in room (pre-loaded with chilled music) and the mobile phone provided in case you get lost wandering the souk, Maison MK offers a level of quality and service we’re yet to find elsewhere.
We enjoyed afternoon tea and cake by the pool each day and drinks at sunset on the über-cool roof terrace, overlooking the rooftops of Marrakech and the Katoubia Mosque.
We also took advantage of Maison MK’s in-house spa – the hammam and massage were excellent; did their cooking course, which was great fun (and we got to eat the delicious results!); and celebrated my birthday with a beautifully presented and tasty degustation dinner at gastro MK.
We even managed to leave the hotel occasionally and explore fantastic Marrakech, but we really were hard-pressed to leave our little sanctuary.
And if you run out of steam in the souk, and don’t feel like enjoying the roof terrace or the plunge pool, why not watch a film in the private movie room - they’ll even rustle up some popcorn for you to get that real cinema feel :-)
In fact, if we had to dig deep for a negative, the only thing we can think of is that the air-con started leaking the afternoon we arrived. Within minutes of telling the manager, we were moved to another room and someone was sent to fix the problem. Really amazing service - I guess you can tell a lot about a place by how they deal with these kind of challenges – and Maison MK passed this test with flying colours!!
We’re already talking about a return visit, with friends and family. Marrakech is a wonderful, vibrant city and our stay at Maison MK made it even more memorable. If you’ve got a little more in the budget or are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion or honeymoon, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it – it’s a place like no other.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
