We stayed here for three nights in April 2007. The Maison Do is an excellent Riad in terms of cleanliness, price, decor, comfort and friendly staff.
The reception and dining areas are inviting. Our room was beautifully decorated with a very comfy bed, good quality linen, furnishings and an attractive bathroom with a huge shower. The Riad is very tranquil and the staff will do all they can to make you feel at home.
From the rooftop terrace - where you can take breakfast - you can listen to the sounds of the medina and in the evening hear the drums and music from djema al fna. Breakfast is superb - freshly cooked eggs and breads as well as orange juice, coffee/tea and a wide selection of jams and preserves. We ate one evening meal in the Riad (book and select your choices the day before) and it was one of the best meals we had in Morocco - we wish we had eaten on other evenings too.
The Riad is located in the medina - about 10 -15 minutes walk from djema al fna. It is not difficult to find with the help of a taxi driver - there is a small residential square nearby where a driver will navigate to and local children will walk you to the door of the Maison Do for a few dirham - be careful not to tip the equivalent of a month's wages though! We had no problems navigating our way to and from riad after the first night and again people are happy to help.
On our second night the electricity in the medina went out for a couple of hours and the staff immediately lit the Riad with candles and lanterns and checked all guests were ok. We would not hesitate to recommend the Maison Do as a good value, beautiful Riad in Marrakech.
