“If you're going to Marrakech, look no further, simply the best place in the city.. bar none.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

If you're going to Marrakech, look no further, simply the best place in the city.. bar none.


Location
Great location, 5 minutes walk from everywhere you want to be in Marrakech's Medina but somehow when you get back it seems you have stepped into your own private oasis miles away.
Taxis are available yards from the front door if you wish to venture further, and trips are easily organised from the riyad itself or from the numerous places on the doorstep.

Decoration/Rooms
Chic, sophisticated and chilled with a generous helping of quirkiness.
Almost everything is bespoke and helps to create a lovely relaxed and unique atmosphere. You'll definitely appreciate that you're not in a generic hotel
The rooms are generously appointed and the attention to detail is epic!. We really appreciated the iPod Dock (and iPod), local sim (and phone), travel adapters etc etc.

Cleanliness
It seemed to me that staff cleaned our room every time we stepped out, literally 2-3 times per day.
Staff are well turned out and the communal areas are well maintained.

Service
The staff are incredible.
Nothing is too much trouble, we were always greeted with smiles and they were always ready to help in any way they could.

Activites
The great thing about the riyad is that they have give you the flexibility to do as much or as little as you want. We spent most of the time kicking back in the private cinema room, roof terrace and spa, but there were cooking classes, excursions and much more.

Food
The food is outstanding. Breakfast is fresh cooked (an in the case of the yoghurt fresh churned) every day. Lunch and dinner are great and residents of the riyad are given first choice of the best seats (a nice touch i think). Just look at the Gastro MK reviews - enough said.

Price
In life, you generally pay for what you get.

Overall i would recommend this riyad to anyone!. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We spent 4 nights at the MK and it was absolutely fabulous. The staff are second to none and could not do enough for us. They anticipated our every need. The breakfasts were excellent... French one day and Moroccan the next all served on the fantastic roof terrace with views towards the mosque.

Most of the time we were the only people there so we actually had the roof terrace, the riad and the staff to ourselves.

One of the highlights was the cooking course we did with chef Omar and Mouna his assistant. We got to make vegetable salads, tagines, couscous, bread and mint tea. We carried the bread to the local communal oven and had it baked there. Omar and Mouna were excellent teachers and showed us traditional techniques. We were then served what we had cooked for lunch on the terrace with a complimentary dessert.

Later during the afternoon each day there was a beautiful cake made by Mouna served with delicious mint tea.


The other highlight was the excellent tasting menu meal in the restaurant cooked by Omar. The food was of exceptional quality and the presentation superb.

We cannot praise this riad enough. Everything about it was fantastic but it's real
strength is their people. They were all quite delightful. Would highly recommend and would go again if we had the chance.

Room Tip: My husband and I hade the biggest room number 1. It was huge with a sitting area. The special advan...

Maison MK is an amazing Riad, with remarkable attention to detail, the staff, food, décor and cocktails on the roof and all beautifully presented. Literally nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they booked a day trip to the Atlas Mountains, as we set off they presented us with a bag of clothes to give to the Berber children so that everyone has a great time.
It’s a perfect location to get out and about to enjoy the fantastic frenetic souks, then return to the perfect oasis to relax and chill out.
I would highly recommend the whole experience, the taster menu, the trip to the Atlas Mountains, the cookery course with the head chef Omar and relaxing in the house Hammam and treatment room. Staying at the Maison Mk was a truly excellent, special experience. If you are looking for a relaxing treat this is an amazing place a real gem. Perfect!

This Marrakech riad has been refurbished with a great eye for design, from the courtyard plunge pool to the bedroom fittings, and features everything you need for a luxury break: in house hammam, massage room, even a private couples cinema. But the real treat at Maison MK is the service from the staff who take care of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible, and always with a smile.

If staying here, you should definitely take the chance to enjoy the degustation dinner, if not do a cooking course with head chef Omar, and relax with a treatment in the in-house hammam.

Room Tip: Room #3 with the bay window overlooking the central courtyard is pretty special.

Maison MK is a beautiful Riad in a fantastic location (5 mins walk from the square, 2 mins walk from taxi drop off). The owners/staff at Maison MK have thought of everything, including sending the hotel info pack via email in advance of your stay so that you can book excursions, dinner etc before you arrive, to little touches such as cake at 4pm.
The spa is small (1 treatment room and 1 hammam room) but the treatments were excellent and they are very reasonably priced.
Dinner at Gastro MK was delicious, with pre-dinner drinks on the terrace before the meal.
Although in the busy medina area, the Riad itself is very quiet and we slept soundly.
This was our first trip to Marrakech so don't have other Riad's to compare to, but we'd highly recommend Maison MK.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a lovely bay window which floods the room with light.

It's very rare for me to want to return to hotels, even when they are as good as they get, as I much prefer to keep moving on. However for Maison MK I am ready to go back at my first opportunity. I felt so very relaxed there. The accommodation is fantastic but its the staff that make the real difference between a great stay and one that is exceptional. Top marks.

For a top class stay in the ancient Medina of Marakesh you can't beat the Maison MK
Breakfast and lunch are served on the rooftop garden with stunning views over Marakesh.
The old building has been tastefully restored to provide every modern convenience. The staff are friendly and think of your every need including providing you with a mobile phone,so they can come and find you if you get lost in the Souk.There is a varied and delicious menu for dinner and the rooms are all air conditioned combining traditional elegance with modern electronics
