“Don't Hesitate to Book - Exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

From start to finish our 2 night stay was perfect. We had an airport pick up which I would recommend, then we were welcomed by all the staff and whisked off for a delicious welcome cocktail - Virgin mojito I think - prepared by Rachid the talented head barman.

Our pool view suite - Nars - was spacious and beautifully appointed. Wifi was brilliant.

Breakfast round the pool was so pleasant. The fresh juices are delicious and really recommend the Moroccan "pancake". Enjoyed drinks in the jazz bar before dinner in the Moroccan restaurant which was a real highlight.

We were lucky enough to enjoy some lovely weather and spent a very pleasant afternoon on the sun terrace dipping in and out of the heated pool.

Nothing was too much trouble during our stay and I would go back in a heart beat.

A delightful and architecturally interesting riad in a good location in the Marrakech medina. Very comfortable, varied menus with good food, and very helpful and friendly staff. Log fires in public rooms on cool evenings were very cheerful.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony with an attractive view over the swimming-pool and outdoor dining area.

We had an amazing stay in La Maison Arabe. Excellent location, just at the gate of Medina and walking distance to major sights and restaurants, so after soaking up the city, we can quickly walk back to the hotel/riad and freshen up. For me, the hotel gives even more Moroccan feeling than outside on the streets. The interior is authentically and beautifully decorated, doors and drawers in real leather, rooms are very cozy, and overall the hotel exudes elegance. Most importantly, the staff and service are tip top! They anticipate your every needs, from making up rooms EVERYTIME you go out, to organizing excursions or even just taxi services. The in-house cooking workshop was also nice, especially the chef/dada. I highly recommend staying in this hotel and we'll certainly be back.

Our stay at La Maison Arabe was faultless, the hotel arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport, which is only 20 mins away. It was our first time to Morocco, The hotel is beautiful, it was our anniversary and the manager kindly upgraded the room, the room was spacious with a very nice bathroom & small outside area to sit. We booked the cookery class, I feel this is a must do, it was so much fun & we learnt so much about Moroccan cuisine. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance for Koutoubia Mosque & Jemaa el Fna, we also visited the stunning Majorelle Gardens. We found the hotel very relaxing The Jazz Bar is great of an evening, asked Rashid to make one of his lemon specials. We went to the Moroccan restaurant in the hotel serving very authentic cuisine, which was superb. Breakfast was taken by the delightful pool area, again the food was great, you must try the Moroccan pancakes with home made jams. My wife had a massage at the spa which was most welcome after walking round the Souks. We would like to thank the staff for there hospitality & we will be making a return visit in the near future.

We stayed at La Maison Arabe for a short break from 12 Feb 2014 to 15 Feb 2014. We had booked a deluxe suite with a patio and were kindly upgraded to the Royal Suite (227) by the manager upon our arrival. The room was spledid with a private terrace and whirlpool tub which allowed us to relax in solitude and enjoy the sun for a few hours each afternoon after walking through the medina. The location was perfect - not too far from everything but quiet and tranquil within the walls and courtyard of the property. The food at the two restaurants was of very good standard and the staff were always attentive and accommodating. The restaurant recommendations were very good as well. Thank you La Maison Arabe for a wonderful holiday. We hope to be back again next year!

Absolutely everything we encountered at Arabe was first-rate. Absolutely gorgeous, very relaxing; the service in every aspect was superb from front of desk to restaurant. And speaking of restaurants, the food was fantastic. Best yogurt ever for breakfast, delicious tea service in the afternoon (welcome after a day of walking the souks), and the international restaurant was outstanding. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: We loved the garden/pool view, but the Mosque next door does broadcast its call to prayer at 5:30 a...

The hotel is very good. The decoration is great. The hotel is made of a few adjacent houses and is full of character. The rooms are beautiful. A place with character and in the middle of the Medina. We had a good time in this hotel.
