We stayed at the La Maison Arabe for two nights and it was wonderful! We stayed in room 264. It is a smaller room but it was beautifully decorated. Once you arrive at the hotel, you're given this delicious Welcome drink. We are then walked to the room and were shown the feature of the room (e.g. how to use the safe, etc). Room had a king size bed that was comfy and outfitted with a lot of pillows. Staff at the hotel were friendly and attentive. We were invited by our tour guide to a dinner in his village outside Marrakech and we asked the front desk if they could provide us with a cake last minute. and they happily provided us with a cake within 30 min - it was a delicious chocolate mousse cake that was a hit with our tour guide and his family. The hotel is located on a side street, so its quiet at night and you dont hear the noise from the street or the Medina. Yet it is close to the Medina, about 10-15 min walk. We walked to the Medina and felt safe. there is also a small BIM/ supermarket near the hotel, about 5 min. walk away if you need to grab snacks or water for the stay. The restaurant in the hotel is on the pricier side but delicious! Breakfast was buffet style and is 200 MAD. Definitely would stay here again if we get to go back to Marrakech. Beautiful Riad with wonderful staff!

One of my requests when planning our anniversary trip to Morocco was to stay in a riad. La Maison Arabe exceeded any expectations I may have had. The design was beautiful.. The attention to detail by the entire team was outstanding. The service was amazing! We began our stay with a refreshing glass of juice (just calling it juice diminishes the beauty and flavor, it was great) in the beautiful courtyard. We then enjoyed the services of the Hammam at their spa. This is a "must do", especially after our flight (we had a seven hour delay in Paris but that is another story). Walk into the spa and take a deep breathe; instant relaxation due to the calming fragrances. My husband and I ate in the jazz bar our first night and listened to the most magnificent lute playing I ever heard (I wish I knew the gentleman's name so I could give him the flowers he deserved). The food, just awesome. For breakfast, those Moroccan pancakes are addictive (although they have the normal breakfast offerings which are just as good)! In the evening, my husband and I ate in our room on the second night istening to the music from our terrace. Room service food is the same as the restaurant (just as great). I cannot find sufficient words to tell how grateful I am for my Marrakech experience but I can say that my stay at La Maison Arabe had a Argentina part in making it a memorable one. Thanks to all of the staff!

I can't recommend this place highly enough. By the end of our stay it truly felt like a home away from home. The Riad sits in a perfect location, slightly out of the craziness of the souks but just a short walk away.The entire staff was super welcoming and helpful, often going out of their ways to assist us. The rooms (we stayed two separate weekends) we both fantastic. Plenty of space, so much beautiful and intiricate art throughout the whole building. The food was fantastic. We loved having breakfast by the pool, eating delicious Moroccan pancakes with nutella and sipping coffee. We had dinner pool side and everything was A+ from service to the food. We were lucky enough to indulge in a hammam and massage while we were there. It was truly and out of body experience. Soo relaxing and just what the doctor ordered after walking around the souks all day. We had a blast at the cooking school, and are excited to try our hand at Moroccan food back home. Hasna was fantastic. Special shout out to Adil, the front desk manager. He was incredibly helpful the whole time we were there. From checking on our lost luggage with the airport, to arranging COVID tests pre-departure, to calling and making reservations and any restaurant we asked him to. The experience wouldn't have been the same without him. All in all, if you're considering stay here, do yourself a favor and book it! You will not regret it!
