About this listing
Basic bedroom in a cute little house in the medina. Perfect for those looking for budget accommodation and basic facilities (including wifi!) in a great location less than 10min away by foot from the Jema El Fna Square. Sunny, quiet terrace perfect to relax. All utilities included, bedlinen, towels provided.
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. There is one ventilator and one radiator available, though, in case it gets too warm or too cold.
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, fully equiped kitchen with fridge, washing machine, cooking utensils, silverware and spices, bathroom with shower and sunny terrace with space to hang your clothes to dry.
The room comes also with towels and bed linen, so you can use that space on your suitcase for something else.
Interaction with guests
I like to go and meet the person at the square to walk them to house so as to show the way there. Then I come by the house two or three times a week and like to interact and exchange about the guest's experience if we cross each other's path. I'm also available at all times through Airbnb message, or phone. It is ideal for independent travelers who still like to be able to have the insight of a local.
The Mouassine neighborhood is in the center of the medina and offers many activities. It is considered to be one of the safest and cleanest neighborhoods of the medina.
There are a lot of groceries, souvenirs and handicraft shops in the area, as well as restaurants and cafés for a wide range of budgets.
It is also known for hosting a range of picturesque arches and part of the souks, with plenty of great photography opportunities.
The house can be only reached by foot or motorbike or bycicle. The closest place to get a taxi is Bab Laqsour less than 10min away by foot. The square of Jema El Fna where you can get taxis and city buses is also less than 10 min away. The closest bus station is at Bab Doukkala about 15 min away by foot.
Other things to note
There is one cat in the house, Candy, and permanent resident. I buy the food and usually guests are happy to feed her twice a day and change her water. There is one key for the front door and I provide locks for the bedroom door, if you require one.

Living in Marrakech for over 6 years, I have extensive knowledge on the city and culture to help you make the best of your stay in the city and the country.
I still like the contrasts and contradictions, the fact that there is some order in the chaos. Moroccan people's smiles and helpfulness.
As a host, I like to meet my guests in person and give them a bunch of tips on how to best enjoy the city according to what their preferences are. A lot find that staying in my house in the old medina adds another layer of interest to the experience.
