“A beautifully restored guest house, full of antiques from the Eastern world, with a rooftop terrace and exceptional cuisine, in the heart of Marrakech’s Royal quarter”
The house's centrepiece is a meticulously restored 17th century salon, with tall, cool white columns, intricately painted walls and archways, and stained glass windows which bathe the room in a cool and tranquil mix of reds, greens and blues.
A narrow staircase from the central salon leads to the Upper Level Rooms. All 3 are comfortably furnished, combining modern simplicity, raw silk cushions from Asia, antiques, and traditional Moroccan details. There are 2 twins and a double to choose from. One of the twin rooms can be booked as an Upper Level Suite which includes the addition of a sitting room (with a single bed), reached by a private flight of stairs, that opens onto its own little terrace.
The Ground Level Room is furnished with antiques but is smaller than the other rooms and has less natural light. There is an exterior door leading to the street for separate access to this part of the house, which helps it feel more private and exclusive.
All guests have access to the main roof terrace from where you have a view of minarets, the royal palace and distant Atlas mountains.
When you wake, fresh, sweet orange juice, coffee and croissants are served for breakfast on either the shared sun or roof terrace.
Maison Mnahba has a cook and dinner can be provided by arrangement (request over breakfast). Try some authentic Marrakech home cooking, which can be enjoyed on the roof terrace overlooking the city. Speciality dishes include bissara, tagine, chicken with olives and Moroccan apple cake. We sadly missed out on dinner, but all reports have been glowing.
Pre-ordered packed lunches can be made for excursions, and snacks are on hand from 1-6pm.
Don't miss the chance to try out some of the great restaurants nearby.
