“The perfect riad in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

I spent 4 nights at La Maison Arabe with my wife and my three little daughters this Easter and we will all came back in the future. The riad very well placed in la medina, with easy access walking to every place, it´s fully restored preserving it´s original taste and ambiance, but with all the facilities; all the staff was absolutely nice, warm, polite and helpful, specially with the children. The breakfast by the pool, among the best we know; dinner at the morocan restaurant, the best meal we have had in Morocco. Drinks at the jazz bar, just perfect, with the complicity of Rachid mixing non-alcohol cocktails for the childs. The heated pool is great after a hard time shopping, at the souks and the garden with the big pool, after a short way by private transfer, is just beautiful and truly relaxing. Not to forget the great hammam, After 3 trips to Marrakech, I can say that La Maison Arabe is my favourite riad. It´s a pitty we didn´t have enough time to attend a morocan cooking class. Congratulations!!!

My husband, daughter(late 20's) ended our Moroccan 12 day vacation in Marrakech for three nights at this wonderful riad - it was the perfect way to end our trip! Easy location for getting around! We had two beautiful suites next to each other-roomy and lavish, and done in great taste! Our breakfasts by the pool were wonderful and we enjoyed two meals at the two restaurants here- both yummy! The staff was was helpful and service A+. My daughter and I experienced our first hammam here, followed by massages!...very relaxing(would highly recommend)! Thanks to all at La Maison Arabe for a nice ending to our Moroccan adventure!

This hotel/riad is better than many 5 star establishments we have stayed in. Walking through the door of this centrally located riad transports you instantly into a dream from the Arabian Nights. The decor is magical and wonderfully evocative of past times. The ambiance is restful. The staff are exceptional, from the reception desk onwards to every department in the hotel. My wife and I have just spent 7 nights there. Marrakech is quite a culture shock (in an enjoyable way!) and La Maison Arabe is an oasis in the madness of the city. Our room was excellent. The restaurant is welcoming and offers a good range of dishes. My wife had two treatments in the Hammam and loved it. We both took part in a cookery class and learned a great deal and then ate the proceeds of our efforts. Great fun. The hotel's Country Club (free shuttle to get there) is a little gem. The hotel organised an english speaking driver to take us up into the lower Atlas Mountains for a day. Well worth doing. This English couple highly recommend La Maison Arabe. You'll be hard-pressed to find better! Bill & Barbara Hughes, UK

I spent my last two nights in Morocco at La Maison Arabe and was very impressed. The hotel is beautiful and I had a great spa/hammam treatment and really loved the room decor - original artwork, relaxing decor and within walking distance to jemaa el fna.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Marrakech - it is a much more intimate experience than a huge hotel.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are unique so review them online to see their particular decor.

We hesitated between staying in a big hotel in the Palm Grove outside the city and a riad in the medina. It took forever to decide and since we were arriving by rental car finally chose La Maison Arabe as they provide free parking. What an amazing place! All the mystery and coziness we were expecting from a riad, plus the chance to be in the center of things – the medina is just crazy and bursting with energy – you really should be
in the medina especially if like us it’s your first trip. But the big plus for us was the country property and swimming pool in the Palm Grove owned by La Maison Arabe which only hotel guests can use. They provide a minivan transfer several times a day and took around 15 minutes to get there. Pure rest and relaxation! And we practically had the whole place to ourselves, just magical. The hotel doesn’t have rooms out there (too bad!) but it’s a great place to spend a few hours. We ate 2 evening at the poolside restaurant at the hotel, great food and service. I don’t think I would rent a car again in Morocco. The driving is just too dangerous!

We just returned from our second trip to Marrakech and La Maison Arabe.
What a pleasure it is staying here. You're within walking distance of the main
square and the nearby souks where I always end up spending too much money
(not a good bargainer here). Since our last trip the hotel seems to have doubled in
size and now has an on site pool. They still have their drop dead beautiful country property
where we spent 2 relaxing afternoons. The staff remains as friendly and professional
as during our last trip. I'd especially like to thank Mostafa at the front desk for all his help
booking great restaurants, our transfers from the airport, and a fantastic side trip to
Essaouira.
