“Gorgeous hotel in the heart of old Marrakech with phenomenal service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights which clearly was not long enough! Every inch of the hotel is beautifully decorated, our suite was impeccable! The food is spectacular, try their moroccan tasting menu so you get a sample of everything. Do not miss a hammam and massage treatment it's out of this world fabulous! Their service is better than the four seasons! Also they are well located and well hidden yet walking distance to the Market and the heart of old Marrakech. I would stay at this hotel over and over! It is like an oasis in the middle of the Sahara desert!

On our recent business trip to Marrakesh, i discovered an amazing boutique hotel, la Maison Arabe. After long days of traveling around the city and conducting meetings , it's was such a welcome relief to come to this oasis. The front desk manager Adil and the hotel manager Nabila took care of everything for me including making sure that important documents were faxed to Boston, taking information for me on important business calls and making sure that my laundry and room was always perfectly clean and ready or me. There are plenty of large luxury hotels in Marrakesh, and they're great too, but for me it's will be La Maison Arabe for all future trips.

Room Tip: Suite Nahar

My husband and I stayed at La Maison Arabe on the last two nights of our ten day trip to Morocco. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted to experience different types of accommodations. We had a picture in our minds of how a riad should look and La Maison Arabe didn't disappoint, it's gorgeous. The food was very good, the location convenient for everything the Medina has to offer and we had a lovely quirky room, Sabah over the reception. At night all the public rooms, patios, restaurants and bars took on a magical ambiance especially around the pool area with candles and beautiful lantern lights everywhere. Oh and last but not least ALL of the staff we encountered were delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our last two nights, a perfect ending to a perfect holiday.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are good but Sabah is convenient to reception and the rest of the Riadh a...

We have just spent four nights in La Maison Arabe and it couldn't have been better. The staff were very attentive and kind and always looked after us. For example they made sure that we didn't pay too much for taxis and other things. The rooms were lovely, the heated pool was great and my wife really enjoyed the Hammam. It's not a long walk to the Djemaa al-fna and the Medina. We are already thinking of returning next year.

Room Tip: Patio side is nice and quiet.

Fantastic Riad.......with the most kind and friendly staff you could ever wish to meet.

This is NOTsome sterile hotel with staff wearing fixed smiles, but more like a friendly home with genuinely happy staff wanting to help......a rare thing in this day and age !!!

We stayed here for 1 week and the welcome we received from the moment we stepped through the door to the day we left was truly exceptional and by the end of the trip we felt we were leaving friends behind.

The Riad is a beautiful place, very elegant and a real oasis of calm from the busy streets of Marrakech. The food is superb, from the poolside snacks to the restaurants. We had room service a few times and it arrived within 10 minutes of ordering .

The staff are always attentive and prompt, but with the perfect balance of being available without hovering. Nothing was too much trouble.

We’d like to say a big thank you to Hi cham who met us on arrival with a cheerful smile, genuine kindness and continued to help us during our stay. Also an added thanks to Nabila, who arranged a special upgrade for us, and all the rest of the staff who made our stay so special.

It is highly ranked on tripadvisor, which is why we booked it, and its ranking is justly deserved.

If ever there was a perfect example of great service with genuine friendliness.....then this has to be it.

Thanks again to all our friends at la Maison Arabe from Nick & Katie

This perfect little boutique hotel, a large extended Riad really, is well situated within walking distance of all the must see attractions. The facilities and decor are superb, and the country club is just beautiful. however, what makes it the best hotel I've ever stayed in is the staff. the team of attentive, friendly and efficient people who welcome you to their hotel is absolutely top class, five star plus. I cannot think of a single thing they could do better. Food in the restaurant is good too, and cocktails in the jazz bar are not to be missed. The traditional musicians playing at the candle-lit pool made all our evenings very special, as we could enjoy them from our room, as well as in the restaurant. Will be going back one day, and will try out the spar next time!

Well, back again in Marrakech. On my past trips I was stunned from all those lovely Riad's, so I tried another one this time - and again, it was a wonderful experience. Perched in a narrow street you enter into an oasis like from 1001 nights - 2 very stylish restaurants, a heated pool, Hammam, delicious breakfast and a highly motivated team. It can't get any better. I'll come back to Marrakech for sure one day!
