Super friendly staff, great food, lovely room, great spa. The entire property is beautiful. We were very pleased to have chosen this hotel just inside the Medina and would return. There are stairs everywhere but somehow that adds to the charm, rather than detracting from it. Some areas are accessible by elevator but we found ourselves using the stairs instead. Beds and pillows are very comfortable.

This riad is stunning. There is a truly dedicated and welcoming team. Not only is the hotel beautiful, but it has a warmth that makes staying here a pleasure. Small and intimate is often better than a large and sometimes impersonal hotel. Not to forget the restaurant! A destination location for many people, it augmented my stay enormously. I enjoyed many amazing meals in the restaurant and in my room. The setting is stunning as it’s next to the pool. There are many other features including a cooking school, hammam, and a second, very private, beautiful swimming pool situated in a gorgeous garden (with food available) 15 minutes from the hotel (well worth the hotel shuttle ride!) At some point during my two-week trip to Morocco (arranged with the excellent tour company, Gateway2Morroco) I contracted a breakthrough case of Covid. Fortunately, the symptoms were mild. I chose to extend my stay. The management and staff did everything to accommodate my quarantine. Besides offering a “covid” rate, they brought meals to my room, helped arrange testing, facilitated airline reservations, and even provided daily “therapeutic” drinks to help me recover. I’d be remiss not to mention the support of Mourad, truly an amazing person at the front desk. Mourad was available every day asking how I felt and offering useful and supportive suggestions. So, if you want to be in a great and authentic location with excellent service (near the Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa-el-Fna) this is it.

I loved this place and it's definitely the place to stay if visiting Marakesh! I visited with my husband for our honeymoon and the staff was kind enough to give us special accommodations. Their rooms are spacious, clean, and absolutely lovely! Their breakfast was delicious and the staff is beyond friendly Everyone welcomed us with smiles. The best thing about La Maison Arabe is that they have facilities you can actually use that live up to a 5-star standard. Their pool is clean and quite big, their spa treatments are at a very fair price and is so beautiful. They even offer dinner at the hotel, it's so good that even people staying outside the hotel come have dinner here. Honestly the price is very very fair for the service you'll receive, and if I ever come back to Marakesh, you'll find me at La Maison Arabe. Thank you to Adel and his kind staff for the great accommodation.
