About this listing
Basic bedroom (converted living room) 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. Four house cats.
The bedroom (converted living room) is in the groundfloor by the kitchen. Window on street view level. Two bedside table (one with lamp), one coffee table, one wardrobe. Not visible on the photos, but several spots on the wall with peeling paint. 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
At the time, I am only spending two nights a week at the house (usually Mondays and Thursdays) but I am always available through phone or internet.
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. If this is not possible because you're arriving during my working hours (9h to 18h30), I will send someone I trust to do it.
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 many 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.
