“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We stayed at 3 different places during our trip to Marrakesh and this one was our favorite! The service was exceptional and the overall ambiance of this hotel is the perfect! It really gave us the sense of being in an exotic, romantic location and the underground spa was magical and so relaxing. Waking up every morning for breakfast by the pool was a fantastic start to our day and dining in one of their two restaurants made for a wonderful ending to a full day of sightseeing. The other places we stayed at were very nice too but La Maison Arabe is the one that I hope to return to someday.

My better half and I swung by "La Maison Arabe" looking for a nice place with a good food. Although online reviews were quite positive about "Les Trois Saveurs" restaurant inside the hotel/riad, we were still surprised by what we found inside. The restaurant offers three most important things you should expect from such a place - great food, professional service, and beautiful atmosphere. If you add a good location to that list, you get a perfect place for a peaceful getaway from usual street madness of Marrakesh Medina. Don't miss it!

When I visit a country I try to stay in places where I find the country’s character, culture and style. There are times that I even stayed at simple guest houses just to experience the local life. In Marrakech, luckily I found La Maison Arabe to meet my expectations. Situated within walking distance to most of the places of interest in the city, La Maison Arabe is a small boutique hotel (called “riad hotel” in Moroccan) with only 26 rooms. It was nicely and skillfully converted from an old arab house with a sympathetic swimming pool in the courtyard. The entrance is through a very narrow alley, typical of Marrakech’s old “medina”. Above all, the staff is extremely warm and friendly and very attentive. If you love to dine out of hotels, I advise you to think twice because La Maison Arabe offers two separate fine-dining restaurants by the pool with outstanding menus, including, of course, famous “tagine” varieties. If I had the time, I would definitely have loved to take cooking lessons from the Chef. Yes, dining there is not cheap, but it is definitely worth the money. All in all, La Maison Arabe is a great experience in Marrakech.

Sneaked off to Marrakech 2 weeks ago, without the kid,s to quietly celebrate my wife's 50th birthday (she didn't let on!) and had 5 delightful days at La Maison Arabe. Very good food and attentive friendly staff. The country club was an oasis of calm and tranquility with a good size pool and as much or as little attention as one desired. We enjoyed a large very well appointed suite with super-comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking the smaller but eminently swimming pool at the center of the riad and are already wondering when we can go back.

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.

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...
