Basic double bedroom in a cute little house in the Medina. Shared bathroom with shower and hot water on the same floor. 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 and quiet terrace perfect to relax. All utilities included, bedlinen and towels provided.
The bedroom is in the groundfloor by the kitchen. Window on street view level. One bedside table with lamp), one coffee table, one wardrobe. 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 just gets too warm or cold.
The house is small but comfortable enough. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one kitchen and a rooftop which serves as a sunny lounge room. It also has a 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.
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 also Nezha, cleaning lady and general helper, that comes roughly twice a week to clean all the common areas of the house. She does not enter the rooms if they are occupied.
There is one key for the front door and I provide locks for the bedroom door, if you require one.
Be respectful to the neighbours (no loud noises after dark, no topless sunbathing and be discreet when enjoying your drink in the rooftop).
During your stay, the cleaning of your room is your responsibility. All the required products and tools are available at the house.
You are not allowed to bring your own guests without prior authorization.
Smoking is allowed in the rooftop only.
Make sure you turn off all light and devices (includes fan and heater) when you go out! I reserve myself the right to go to your room to turn them off, if they are left on. Electricity is expensive in Marrakech too and, honestly, would you do it in your own home?
I like to go and meet the person at the square to walk them to house so as to show the way there. After that, I usually come to the house twice or three time a week to check that everything is ok and I'm happy to chat and exchange with guests about their experiences and others. I'm also available for any questions through Airbnb message or phone. It is ideal for independent travelers who still like to be able to have the insight of a local.
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.
