Small and basic bedroom in a cute little house in the medina. Perfect for those looking for budget accommodation and basic facilities in a great location less than 10min away by foot from the Square. Sunny terrace and three nice cats in the house.
The bedroom is small but has everything needed for a comfortable life. Bedside table with lamp, wardrobe for your clothes, table and chair and a console to range your stuff. Thick inside curtain on door and window to keep the room isolated from the cold in winter and the heat in summer so it stays comfortable without any major devices.
The house is small but comfortable enough.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one kitchen and a terrace which serves as a sunny lounge room. Also shaded area to cope with the heat of Marrakesh.
With the room comes access to internet, kitchen with fridge and washing machine, bathroom and sunny terrace with space to hang your clothes to dry.
The room comes also with towels and bedlinen, so you can use that space on your suitcase for something else.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house as well so expect to interact a lot with me (and my cats). I like to go and meet the person at the square (or some other place nearby) to walk them to house so as to show the way there.
As this is also my house there are something to consider:
- Whether we become friends, housemates or keep a "guest" and "host" relationship depends on a lot of things like time of your stay, whether you come alone or in couple and general "feeling". Whatever happens, respect for each other's space (whether physical or personal) remains essential.
- I may ask you to feed the cats if I go away for some days (this is, of course, not mandatory, but, in case you say no, there will be somebody from outside the house coming in everyday to do it).
- There are no locks for the rooms. The only key is the one for the front door.
The Mouassine neighborhood is in the center of the medina and offers many activities.
There are a lot of groceries, souvenirs and handicraft shops in the area, as well as restaurants and cafés.
It is also known for hosting a range of picturesque arches and part of the souks.
The house can be only reached by foot or motorbike or bycicle. The closest place to get a taxi is Bab Laqsour about 5 min away by foot. The square of Jema El Fna where you can get taxis and city buses is less than 10 min away. The closest bus station is at Bab Doukkala about 15 min away.
Other Things to Note
The house is cleaned weekly by a professional cleaning lady and I do some tidying up in between.
Be nice to my cats and respectful to the neighbours.
During your stay, your room's cleanliness is your responsibility. If you are not going to help with the cleaning of the common spaces, at least, keep them as you found them.
If you want to bring your own guests, for the evening or to sleep over, please, inform me before. I believe you will agree I have the right to know who comes to my house other than the ones who booked with me.
Smoking allowed on the terrace only.
The room is spacious and comfortable, well located in the old town (Medina). Patricia is helpful and kind. Many animals in the apartment, so it's not so clean. Recommended

Patricia is a very friendly and openminded girl and our stay at her house was great. She gave us tips for our time in Marrakech and was always very helpfull. She didn't act only as a host but also as a friend. Her house offers a great terrace to chill together. I recommend warmly to stay at Patricias home ans spend some time there with Patricia herself.
I had a great experience staying at Patricia's place. First off, making arrangements was very easy--Patricia was responsive and communicative. The room itself was spacious and comfortable and the location was very convenient--most places were within walking distance with the Plaza Jema El Fna being only a five-minute walk away. Patricia herself was a great hostess--very relaxed and easy going, she was able to answer my questions and provided me insight into Moroccan culture. The cats were also very friendly and provided good company. Overall I was very satisfied with my stay and would highly recommend it.
Patricia is a very communicative and helpful. We had a nice correspondence after i booked her apartment for my friends - honeymooners. They are really excited and happy about their stay. They found their small cosy room and Patricias's cats very charming. I hope to have a chance to visit her by myself soon.
We had a great time at Patricia's place - the house was a great base for us to explore the Medina and Marrakech and she was an amazing host. She was very welcoming and we felt very comfortable in her home. The wifi was good and we got to meet Patricia's adorable cats. Thanks for having us.
If you are looking for a place on a low budget, which is also located in an ideal location for exploring the souks of the medina and the Jemaa al Fna, then this accommodation is ideal. The winding streets leading from the property are lit at night, so feel safe enough to walk. The facilities are basic, but sufficient, with plenty of hot water for the shower, and the bed was comfortable. However, do not expect perfect facilties or decor, for this price. Although not evident in the photographs, paint is peeling from several places (but not in the upstairs bedroom), and the moroccan door to the bedroom is 'sealed' with crunched up newspaper. The advert describes two bedrooms and a living room. However, the living room is a small room used solely by the host, so do not expect a sofa to relax on. None of these factors were an issue to us, as we knew we were paying a small amount for our stay, and wanted an authentic feel to living in the medina. Our prime motivation, other than price, was the promise, described by several other reviewers, that Patricia was an excellent host, willing to share meals, and treat her guests as housemates.
Alas, this is not what we experienced. Despite the fact that she was not present for the first six days of our stay, we agreed to feed her cats while she was away, and were very happy to do so. Although her two cats were well trained, she did have a further temporary feline resident recovering from a serious injury, who was not so well trained, meaning that every day we had to clean up mess from the floor outside our bedroom, as well as clearing out the litter tray a few days into the stay. Again, this we quite happily did. When Patricia turned up, despite our attempts to be sociable and conversational, not once did she ask us what we had done or seen, nor thank us for looking after her cats, nor even welcome us into her home. Her main concern seemed to be what we should have done with a small tied up bag of rubbish, despite us having no way of knowing where or when we should leave it.
From that point forward, it was barely possible to elicit a friendly good morning, let alone engage in any conversation. Strangely, when another guest arrived a few days later, she freely chatted and laughed with her. This made us feel quite uncomfortable at times. She did not even say goodbye to us on our final day. We are at a loss as to why it turned out this way, but this was all a great pity, as we had looked forward to the possibility of making a new friend in Marrakech.
The "living room is a small room used solely by the host" is actually my bedroom and as such rightly used by myself alone. I do acknowledge the description is outdated as, at the time I wrote it, there was indeed a living room downstaris that has since been transformed into another sleeping room. The description will be updated to best describe this.
