Our previous visits to Morocco had not seen us venture further south than Marrakech. Consequently there was a sense of both excitement and trepidation when we drove south to Ouarzazate. We had planned a 6-day stay in the town, and needing a little peace and quiet, we elected to stay at the Temple Des Arts. This was possibly the best... More

A very welcoming place indeed, with just seven suites but each with a story of its own to tell! Many great movies have been filmed in this oasis of Morocco and Temple des Arts plays homage to several in its rooms. Albert, the owner, is the most gracious man in the world and his warmth made us like family!

As soon as the front door opened, we felt like walking into another world, a "mirage", the mysteriuos world of movies of our childhood. The reception was very warm from everybody and we flet quite wellcomed. The moroccan pastries served were home made and delicious. The suites were exquisitely decorated with different movie theme each. A lot of attention for... More

We had a lovely stay here before and after a few days in the Sahara, it was wonderful and the hospitality shown to us by the owner, Albert and his staff was warm and welcoming. The staff were very polite and most welcoming. Rooms are beautiful and very well kept, food was fantastic. Would highly recommend a stay here after... More

An unscheduled stop-over in Ouarzazate (the Hollywood Morroco's) turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Due to flooding after some serious rain we got stuck in the city of Ouarzazate and found this amazing "seven-star" guest house. The very warm welcome from Ibrahim and Albert turned our miserable faces into a big smile. The guesthouse and it's seven rooms... More

Only 7 fantastic rooms, 4 of them suites in this city famous for the number of movies with scenes shot there. Each room is based on a different theme, some of them related to these movies. We stayed in the Lawrence of Arabia room, a reconstruction of a bivouac in a Berber setting surrounded by wool hangings, leather, and copper.... More

We drove up to this beautiful walled hotel and right away we knew we were somewhere special. The public spaces and the pool were very pretty. It had a very comfortable welcoming atmosphere. We received excellent service---the staff could not do enough to help us. The hotel did not look like the usual luxury hotel--it was more like a fun... More

The most extraordinary boutique hotel based on films set in North Africa. Truly an oasis in Ouarzazate! It was much appreciated, particularly after the heat of the Sahara (we visited in August!) Ibrahim greeted us and showed us around the hotel. He encouraged us to feel right at home and he made it feel just that way! The owner Albert... More

I stayed here with my family after a horrific trip into the Sahara where we caught the most nasty stomach bug, the Riad organised a doctor to come to our room and even went to town to get our prescriptions. They went the extra mile by organising a special meal for our dinner to settle our stomachs, everyone there is... More

Le Temple des Arts is a boutique hotel done in the Riad style but with unique decor and exceptional service. Ibrahim will greet you and make sure all your needs are met. Call him ahead if you need directions. Street signs are rare. The chef is great. I had the best lamb chops of the trip. The seasoning on kabobs... More
