Ideally located in medina, in the district of mouassine, maybe the best district of the medina because close to souks, the place Jemaa el Fna and to the new city (gueliz). The house has 2 rooms with A/C and private bathroom.
A charming small house renovated in 2009 located in a very quiet and sure alley.
The house has a large lounge with kitchen, 2 rooms with A/C / heating with private bathrooms, and a roof terrace. The first room is on the ground floor and the second one on the roof terrace.
The kitchen is completely equipped and the lounge is also air-conditioned. The WIFI is of course available (and free).
House linen is provided.
The house is located at 5 minutes walk from Bab Laksour, the closest door of the medina and 5 minutes from place Jemmaa el Fna.
You can find a lot of shops, grocer's shops ....
I can organize your transfer from and to the aiport (15 euros/ 1 way).

Other Things to Note
As I'm not living in Marrakesh all year long, Aimad and Yassine will welcome you in my house and will give you all information you need so that you have an excellent stay. You can contact them if you need during your stay. You can also have on request a cleaning lady who can also cook special moroccan dishes for you.
The house is always rented entire (I mean you will not have have to share the house with other guest even if you rent my house just for one or two people.)
We had a great time at Ben's flat. We were met at the airport by a lovely driver who despite having to wait 2 hours due to baggage issues was still extremely friendly... Just what we needed. The house was lovely right in the heart of the medina (5 minutes from the sooks and about 5/10 minute walk to the square)
We were two couples and the house was spacious enough to not be on top of each other. The roof terrace was a welcomed haven when returning from a day of exploring the town!
The room upstairs was lovely bright and airy whilst the ground floor room was a bit dark but still fine. There was a little bit of damp but it didn't impact our stay at all and we loved the house!
Yassine was always available when needed and was extremely friendly and helpful. Upon arrival he spent time explaining where to go and what to be aware of... He was fab!
I would recommend to others. Thanks for a great introduction to Marrakech life!
We hebben een heel fijn verblijf gehad in het huis van Ben! De taxiservice van het vliegveld naar het huis was goed geregeld. Bij aankomst in de stad stond Yassin op ons te wachten, een hele vriendelijke en behulpzame jongen die ons naar het huis bracht. Het huis is een oase van rust in de drukke medina, de bedden waren zeer comfortabel en alles was schoon en netjes. Als je zelf wat inkopen doet en 's ochtends vers brood haalt kun je heerlijk ontbijten op het zonnige dakterras.
Ben's house is a delight. It's in good nick, the kitchen and living area are bright and airy, and the beds are comfy. In fact, one of my travel buddies claimed it was the most comfortable bed he's *ever* slept in. And the roof terrace is lush - a nice spot to unwind, have a drink and retire from the hubbub of the city.
It's within easy walking distance of Jemaa el-Fnaa, and the souks are just round the corner. But it's surprisingly quiet at night. And great value.
Although we didn't meet Ben in person, he was always quick to respond to messages, and very friendly. We met his friend Aimad, who was very smiley and welcoming. And took me for a spin on the back of his scooter. Which was fun. Although, if you do this when you're picked up, try to pay close attention - because the streets are a bit of a maze, and take a little while to get used to.
So, all in all, both thumbs up!
This riad and his owner are everything they promise. We got fast responses to every email, phone call, ... Transportation was well organized. The apartment is cosy, clean and spacious. Hot water, cooking possibilities, big fridge, wifi, everything you need if you travel with kids like we did. Ben, Yassine, Karim thank you for taking good care of us!
Beautifull house in the Medina, in a really nice street, Ben was very good at communicating with us and organized the taxi from the airport which was very handy. Aimad was very nice and helpful showing us the area the first night and being happy to help all the time. 100% recommended
Ben's apartment was beautiful. Clean, nicely appointed, exactly as described. It was also perfectly located near the medina. Close enough to walk to everything and yet quiet at night. Thank you!
We had a fabulous time in Marakkech. Ben's apartment was lovely and very comfortable. It was also centrally located to the Old Medina Souk and the popular square where there are street performers. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen that even provided us with coffee fixings. We would highly recommend Ben's apartment for a relaxing, interesting stay.
