“An Amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We have recently returned from a 3 night stay at the fabulous La Maison Arabe which was recommend to us by a friend - we were so impressed!
We were given an escorted guide around the riad on arrival, followed by tea and pastries sitting by the pool in gorgeous sunshine which felt even more special having left England on a cold wet morning. Our room was spacious and elegantly decorated in Moroccan style with complimentary wine and water (the water was renewed each day). We looked out on the swimming pool and pretty garden area with olive trees and lanterns, which when lit up in the evening was a beautiful place to be. There was so much attention to detail throughout the riad - pretty patios, amazing lighting and reflections, water features, carved wooden doors and panels, warm hues, pretty seating areas and not only was the decor excellent but also the high standard of service. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
La Maison Arabe was a fantastic oasis of tranquility to return to after exploring the city.
We covered a lot of the tourist sights in the two days, and ran out of time to try out the cookery school or visit the country club - it looks like we will have to return!

This hotel is well located, beautiful, luxurious, and the service could not possibly be better. The breakfast is top notch, too, and the restaurants are excellent. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, beautiful in fact. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.

Stayed at La Maison Arabe in March '13. Had a wonderful time. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and polite. The location is outstanding. The facilities are also top notch: the decoration, restaurants, and hammam are fantastic. I would encourage anyone staying in Marrakech to select this ryad.

Just returned from a 10 day vacation to Morocco and finished our tour in Marrakech at La Maison Arabe which turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Everything we read on TripAdvisor was accurate and it really is a magical place. Location, ambiance, service and attention on the part of the Riad staff was absolutely superb. Once minor point; the shower in the bathroom should have a better protection from the rest of the bathroom as the water splashes all over every time you take a shower. Everything else was perfect

A short late February stay in Marrakech led us to the wonderful 'La Maison Arabe' (guided there by the very helpful company 'Lawrence of Morocco'). Once through the door, you enter another world where everything is beautiful and nothing is too much trouble for the charming and helpful staff. Our bedroom was stylish, comfortable and immaculately kept. Fresh flowers and bottled water were welcome touches. We could only stay 2 nights and ate both nights at La Maison Arabe - not something we would normally choose to do when in a hotel. We were very happy that we did. Breakfasts by the pool were unhurried and totally delicious - if you are lucky your Moroccan crepe will be created for you by the wonderful lady who runs the cookery school. We hope to return and stay longer to try the cookery school and relax even more in the divinely-scented hammam.

Although we knew this was a good hotel we were not prepared for the magic of it. We stayed for a total of 6 nights.
The splendid rooms,impeccably serviced, the attention to detail, the delicious breakfasts and complimentary afternoon tea, the incredible meals, (French and Moroccan menus) at the wonderful restaurant, all were superb.
But the most important aspect was the human factor: the unforgettable staff! The personal concern, kindness, good humor, were well beyond expectations.

Room Tip: We had two separate stays, the rooms were different, they both were great. I have a weakness for sep...

When intending to stay in Marrakech for the first time one can only rely upon advice from friends and information from the internet. One doesn't know if the facilities, the ambience, the service or the food would be better elsewhere but having stayed at La Maison Arabe in early march we can say that all were outstanding. The gamble paid off!

It is doubtful that any other hotel could match the welcome one receives and the courteous attention at all times from all the staff but one can say with some certainty that the hotel building itself and its interiors must be unmatched in Marrakech. Where a new hotel establishment may order fixtures, fittings, artefacts etc in bulk on a commercial basis, here, (as the history tells us) the aristocratic italian owner has had a hand in the selection of every item - and has done so with singular good taste and apparently with no expense spared. The combination of Moroccan artefacts and craftsmanship with Italian sensibilities and flair have created interiors of exceptional quality - for all guests to enjoy. If this is your interest it is a real treat.

One finds too that this visual feast is matched by one for the ears. Every evening one is entertained at dinner with lute, guitar and the tremulous voices of the players (not to mention the pianist in the Jazz bar!) - not travelling musicians but masters from the academy of music in Marrakech no less. It doesn't get more exclusive than that!

It is so difficult to orchestrate the proceedings of a hotel with such seemingly effortless efficiency but here it is done with great success. Here in the UK we have the television series "Faulty Towers" to remind one just how difficult that is! Well done to management and staff. We shall be back for more.
