Maison Mnabha, Marrakech, Morocco

An inexpensive, beautifully restored guest house in the heart of Marrakech’s Royal quarter

Maison Mnabha is an exquisitely restored townhouse, built over 800 years ago by Sultan Yacoub el Mansour in the centre of Marrakech’s Kasbah.

If you are looking for an inexpensive and authentic base from which to explore the city, Maison Mnabha is ideal.

Owners Peter and Lawrence will treat you as friends in their home, picking you up from the airport and familiarising you with Marrakech. They’re a fount of local knowledge – Peter has completed a PhD on the Kasbah – and they’ll give you the low down on the best places to buy Moroccan furnishings.

As the owners note, Moroccan houses are designed to conceal their interiors from the outside gaze, and Maison Mnabha is no exception. Once inside, this small maison d’hotes boasts sumptuous fittings and classic Moroccan architecture.

Maison Mnabha in the Marrakech Kasbah is a guesthouse with 5 rooms, with doubles costing from €70 for B&B.
