“A real Moroccan Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This was a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff. We stayed here two nights and loved it. Don't miss dinner by the pool lit with candlelight. We highly recommend you stay here. Close to the medina, but quiet so you can get rest and enjoy.

Me and my wifes first holiday abroad was to Marrakech and we were in awe when we arrived at this fantastic Riad, it is located perfectly inside the old medina wall which makes it right on the border of the old town and new town. making the location perfect to access from all directions and keeps the taxi fares low and you can walk to many points of interests easily.
the Riad itself comprises of 26 rooms and 2 courts, a swimming area beside the restaurant and all you can ask, the Riad from outside doesnt look like anything but once you step inside you are in heaven, the decor is a superb mix of morrocan and french fusion, each section compliments each other, every little peice of furnitioning is carelfully chosen and hand crafted. the staff at reception and all other dept are so wonderful and caring including the reception manager and one of the receptionist by the name of Mourad, and also if using the restaurant, the female restaurant manager is so sweet and caring.
the food is beautiful and the breakfast is fresh and variety is endless, and eating it beside the pool is very romantic. We had a chamber which was beautiful, romantic and very well kept, it was room 228. It was maintained very well throughout the stay, the receptionist would organise eveything for you upon request. the Riad being of 26 rooms meant that they can give a special personal attention to all clients of the Riad. Me and my wife would only recomment this hotel if you are goimg to stay in marrakech as its luxurious, romantic, hospitality at its peak and truly a gem of marrakech itself.

Room Tip: Room 228 is perfect if you want a secluded private location and yet be close to reception and be in...

La Maison Arabe is an excellent hotel in which to stay, and is well located in the Medina.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the buffet breakfast was excellent, as was the Moroccan restaraunt and the jazz bar.
Our room was very comfortable, and the bathroom facilities very good.
If we are lucky enough to travel to Marrakech again, we would definitely stay at La Maison.

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.
