“An oasis in a sea of chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

La maison arabe is a truly outstanding establishment, with impeccable service, spotless rooms, scrumptious food options (for both the buffet breakfast and the gourmet in-house Moroccan restaurant) and an unbeatable location. The free afternoon tea service, with cookies, offered daily is also a wonderful treat. The staff is extremely friendly and is always willing to help.

The only comment with respect for areas of improvement would be regarding the quality of the morning coffee, both the regular coffee and cappuccino. However, the breakfast buffet itself offered a wide variety of fare and should be able to satisfy all tastes.

La Maison Arabe is an excellent hotel which is well located in the medina. The food and service is exceptional. It also has a lovely garden with pool accessed via a free shuttle bus 15 minutes away where a good range of lunch/drinks is available. We were given excellent recommendations for dinner in the city.

Room Tip: The De Luxe room is much better than the Junior suite with patio

We have stayed 4 nights at La Maison Arabe and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Our Deluxe room was very nice and had a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and we also had a partial view of a mosque . The service was excellent and the staff very polite and friendly, especially at the reception. We have stayed at many luxurious hotels around the world and this one is definitely among our top favourites. La Maison Arabe has made our first trip to Marrakech extremely enjoyable, we highly recommend it.

Every detail of this hotel is thought carefully. The Moroccan decoration is amazing; we were astonished with the lamps. The location is very convenient (not inside, but only 10 min. walking from the Djemaa el-Fna).
The room is clean and spacious, with a big bed and good bathroom. The only point of improvement is the shower, which does not have enough pressure (but it is not bad at all).
The hotel service is extraordinary, the staff is very helpful and they are very concerned with our experience. We certainly recommend the Hotel's Hammam (the Moroccan bath). One little tip is for the breakfast. It is great, but it lacks some "sweet" options -- nothing to dampen the quality of the breakfast. I would certainly stay in this hotel again. It set the accommodation bar very high. It is difficult to explain the bad reviews we read here.

We had the great pleasure of staying at La Maison Arabe for an amazing second visit in November. This hotel has the most exceptional and caring staff of any hotel we have ever visited. Also, for a second visit, we were so delighted to see that the same incredible customer service was still as wonderful as our first visit.

The General Managers of the hotel, Taoufik and Nabila are fantastic and made our 15th wedding anniversary the most unforgettable experience that we have ever had. Thank you to you both and all the staff for making it so special.

From the restaurant staff to the spa staff to the front desk staff – every single person that works at the hotel makes sure that all your needs are taken care of. Moroccans are famous for their hospitality, but La Maison Arabe goes above and beyond to make your stay truly unforgettable. We feel as though we have a second family at La Maison Arabe and we are planning our third visit back very soon!

Don’t miss the opportunity to stay at this marvelous hotel when you are in Marrakesh - not only is it a beautiful and breathtaking riad, but the staff make it a place you want to keep coming back to again and again.

PS - See my first review of La Maison Arabe for even more details about the hotel.

Fatima and Waha were the best!!! Fatima the Dada was very bubbly and funny and kept making a noise called "ululation" to express her happiness and Waha was very knowledgable and made us feel at home and was very helpful!

The cookery course was amazing! and the food and the lunch at the end of the course we brilliant!

Thank you La Maison Arabe!
