“The best treatment in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

I booked this hotel willing to try to experience a nice and comfortable accomodation but with the morocan taste while staying in La medina which is the old main area of Marrakech. I got everything i was expecting and more.... G.Paolo, the owner of this place and his staff took care of me and my friends like nobody else would have done it in a big hotel.
The place has 8 rooms with a nice roof terrace and everything is beautifully decorated.
The location is perfect as while it is in la Medina, you can walk easyly to the main avenues of Marrakech and so it is possible to enjoy the modern and the old city.
I have traveled all over the world and this is the kind of place that a traveler would love to find in every city...
G. Paolo will take care of you in every detail, you will feel like the most important guest.

Hotel in the heart of the medina, which was central to all sights. Owner and staff made us feel so welcome and attended to our every need/wish. The atmosphere of this hotel made our stay in Marrakech exceptional. Thank you to everyone at Maison Arabo Andalouse!

Room Tip: We had a terrace overlooking the plunge pool which we loved!

Such an oasis of peace, good taste and casual hospitality in bustling Marrakech. Although located only a few minutes walk from the city centre, inside the Kasbah, the only sound you can hear in your room is the occasional clacking of the storks, nesting on the neighbouring Palais El Badii.
Because we like to travel, and because I also travel a lot for work, I have stayed in many a hotel, but I have never felt so welcome and taken care of (without being pushy) as in the Maison Arabo Andalouse.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here a few weeks ago and can't recommend it enough. The place is perfect, rooms are really nicely decorated -ours had a lovely outside terrace space that was really nice to relax in at night. Perfect location. Although the place is great and couldn't be nicer, our favourite part of the stay was Paulo and the staff that worked there. Had never been to Marakkesh before and they made us feel very at home. NOthing was too much trouble for them!!! From recommendations of places to go to making sure we had had enough to eat for breakfast before we left for the day! They were amazing.... would never stay anywhere else if we went back....

It is definitely not easy to find - but once you are there you are quite comfortable. Rooms were clean, very spacious, and comfortable. Paolo and his staff are amazing and make you feel at home. They cannot do enough for you during your visit and always go out of there way to make sure you have everything you need to include direction to the local attractions, day trips, or desert excursions. Mohamed is wonderfully extraordinarily accommodating. I would steal him to work in my Riad if I owned one.

Can only whole heartedly endorse many of the previous positive comments about the place. A lovely place to stay, in a great location. Five minutes walk from the Djemaa el Fnaa, and within walking distance of many of the other sights of Marrakech. Arabo Andalouse has a calm, relaxed and luxurious feel to it, and is easy and safe to get back to on an evening once you know where it is. Our room was air conditioned, scrupulously clean, and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was a freshly made treat. In Mohammed we felt that we had someone who was on our side, and for whom nothing was too much trouble. He looked after us wonderfully during our stay, and was always willing to help and give us the benefit of his local knowledge. Highly recommended!

We chose this riad because of great reviews, appealing decor, and the pool (we found very few centrally located riads with a pool). We could not have made a better choice!

Location: 10min walk to the central Square (from the southern side), 1 min walk out to get a taxi, yet once you turn into the alleyway that leads to the riad, you immediately feel as if you've left the hubbub of the city behind you. always felt safe even late at night.

Atmosphere: Beautifully decorated and airy, but also cozy and intimate. We loved our terrace which was wonderfully breezy and quiet (Red room, junior suite 6). We would leave the door open throughout the night (no AC needed even in the summer) and wake to birds chirping, then have our breakfast on the terrace. We had a candlelit dinner on the rooftop terrace one night that was a better experience than any restaurant could provide.

Service: Paulo is an exceptional host, like a benevolent European uncle. He has traveled widely, speaks many languages (including English, Italian, French), and knows Morocco well. He was always interested to hear our plans for the day and provided many useful tips (including where to go to frame artwork) and options without ever being the least bit pushy. He arranged a day trip into the Atlas mountains for us with our own knowledgeable driver for a reasonable price. Fatima and Mohammed were also delightful and always helpful. Younes showed us where to have our artwork framed and helped us get local prices.

Food: Breakfast was always bountiful, fresh, and healthy - homemade crepes, flaky croissants, fresh figs and other local fruits, hot tea/coffee. The homemade multicourse dinner was also exceptional and very reasonable in price given the personal service and customized menu.

Rooms: We stayed in junior state 6 and my mom stayed next door in junior suite 7. Both were colorful and large with very homey but gorgeous decor. Plenty of storage space and places to sit, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean, water was hot. Pool was good for dipping your feet in after a long hot day.

Overall, we felt cared for and pampered and felt it really contributed to a delightful trip. I will recommend this place to all our friends.

Room Tip: We loved Junior Suite 6. Terrace was large and breezy in the mornings and evenings.
