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 (house is less than 10min away from the square) Sunny terrace. Two house cats.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed in Patricia’s house for 3 months and it was wonderful. The room is spacious and quiet and the location of the house is just perfect, in the heart of the medina close to everything you need and only a few minutes walking from Jema El Fna. Patricia herself (email hidden)/roommate and very helpful & relaxed. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Patricia is a respectful and friendly hostess. Her place has a great location in the medina, close to all tourist sites as well as shops, restaurants, was a different experience than staying in an riad / hotel and a very positive one!

  • Patricia's place is well located in the old medina but is quiet. The price was great. Elephant and Mouse were also good housemates. Being able to use the kitchen and clothes washer were nice features.
    This (email hidden) to bookmark.

  • Patricia is a very sweet person & although it was on very short notice, she was able to let me in smoothly.
    The place is centrally located but if you are scared of walking alone at night in dark allies, you will have issues going out late at night. This is an issue with all places located in old medina.
    I took the room in the ground floor so it felt like the kitchen, washing machine & bathroom were all mine :D
    I liked the fact that I could smoke there because riads have an open ceiling in the middle (but this make it quite cold at night)

  • Awesome relaxed little house deep in the medina. Patricia is an excellent host full of local knowledge, advice and fun. So glad I stayed here and not in a guest house for 3 weeks :)

  • The best thing about Patricia's traditional Moroccan home is Patricia. She (email hidden) who is generous with her time as well as sharing her home. We shopped locally for fresh fruit and vegetable supplies, ate lunch and dinner on a few occasions and also with friends of hers. I was invited out to dinner, where we ate at one of the many restaurants/ outdoor stalls on the very lively Dejmaa El Fna Square, (which HAS to be seen in this life time. Put it on your bucket list!) Equally, I was left to my own devices to explore the city, relax or work in the house and in the sunshine on the terrasse. The house is quiet enough if you are working away from home, which suited me well. The room I stayed in was the converted living room so the kitchen is outside the door. This was not a problem, because as I have said it is a quiet house and otherwise you are mostly included or invited to any social activities. There was also a shower room and toilet on the same floor which I had exclusive use of, so that was nice. The apartment is in the heart of the souks and 5 minutes from the square. There is a lot to see in Marrakech and Patricia's place is a great base for that.

  • Paricias house is situated close to the Medina and thus directly on the famous Djama el Fna. The rooms are attractive and typical Moroccan décor, so that the right flair arises. Patricia herself is a very helpful and friendly person who takes the time to answer all questions and also helps in difficulties. She has good contacts in the neighborhood if you like to book a day tour. Her very sweet cats receive their new roommates very joyfully, so you feel like a little family. I glad to recommended Patricia as host for anyone who wants to spend cheap and comfortable in a friendly typical Moroccan accommodation.

  • Patricia (email hidden) and I have enjoyed her company and friendship during the period I stayed at her house. The room is cosy and I was comfortable in it throughout my stay, it also has its own bathroom which was a real bonus!
    The area is central and at the same time very quiet.
    Good terrace for reading and watching the sun set!

  • Patricia's apartment is well located within the Medina in a quiet residential area just minutes from all the Souks. The apartment has charm and character and also a lovely rooftop terrace, great for reading, eating or simply taking in view of Marrakech rooftops! Patricia is an excellent host, friendly and informative and respectful of her guest's privacy. I enjoyed staying there.
