Amazing stay at this hotel which is a typical but luxurious riad, with Spa, pool, restaurant, jazz bar and panoramic terrace. The room was great, quiet and clean, with water and wine offered every day. The staff is super friendly and they've helped us through out the journey. Breakfast is fabulous too. Highly recommend!!! We hope to come back ASAP!

Nice Riad in a good section of the Medina. We had three rooms and all were unique in a great way. Super design aesthetic, spacious, clean. Our rooms were up a couple of flights of stairs which was fine for us but just noting because it may be of interest to others. Dinner in the restaurant was very good as was the huge breakfast buffet. Staff was lovely.

What an amazing hotel! I’ve stayed in many hotels and this is definitely one of the best! Upon arrival they will treat you to a welcome drink which I don’t know how to describe other than the most refreshing drink I’ve ever tasted. The hotel itself is gorgeous and huge! It took us a few times to remember how to get to our room. The breakfast buffet was amazing! The offsite “country club” was spacious, we got a daybed and some lunch, so easy and relaxing! They also give you a complimentary bottle of wine, which we enjoyed on one of their several rooftop terraces! In the afternoon they also offer complimentary tea. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. What a great experience and so many amenities! It’s all the little things that really put this hotel over the top! If I ever go back to Marrakesh I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

My wife and I, with another couple, made a last minute booking at La Maison Arabe after we cancelled our proposed cruise to Norway. We had hoped to see the Northern Lights but bad weather meant that Viking Venus could not leave Norway as planned and our cruise schedule was being radically altered. We made a great decision to go to La Maison Arabe instead and this hotel quickly removed all disappointment about not seeing the Northern Lights. We had a wonderful welcome from Manager Mourad who very generously offered the four of us room upgrades because of mobility problems within our group. The spacious and very comfortable rooms we were given were in a delightful courtyard and afternoon tea there was one of the many highlights of the day. All members of staff were eager to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. Nothing was too much trouble and our breakfasts and dinners beside the heated swimming pool were delicious and delighful. So was the sun which provided us with lovely (best English) summer weather. Advised by Mourad and his staff, we explored Marrakech including the souk and various museums and gardens. One special and memorable day trip was to the snowcapped Atlas Mountains. Another great experience for my wife and me was to spend time cooking our lunch in the superb Cookery School which adjoins and is part of the hotel. The gym, the swimming pool and the sun terrace all had many return visits from us during our 10 day stay.. La Maison Arabe has a fascinating history and it was Marrakech’s first Riad Hotel. The four of us all hope we can return to it. But not in the summer when we understand that it can be unbearably hot.

Faultless service throughout our whole stay. Every member of staff is on point to make your day special. The building is stunning and every corner is decorated and furnished beautifully. Fantastic welcome with a refreshing drink and tea and a tour. Breakfast selection was fantastic. Dinner was less impressive, but beautiful setting and music. The pool was perfect for a calm dip after the busyness of the souk. We had the hammam in the spa, as well as facials and massages - really great experience. The highlight though was the cookery workshop with Rokaya and Fatiha. It far exceeded our expectations and gave us an experience we will never forget.

La Maison Arabe gives you the personal hospitality of a Riad complimented by the luxury experience of a world class boutique hotel. The food across the many restaurants was a personal highlight, particularly when enjoyed on their rooftop bar or cooked in the hotel brilliant cooking class. The staff are also great at either providing or advising residents with packages from walking tours of the medina to camel riding in the dessert

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marrakech at La Maison Arabe! The location is ideal for walking, the building is beautifully old with just the right amount of updates to make it very comfortable. The accommodations in the room are all that was needed, and we really loved the amazing breakfast buffet every morning (we heard the hotel restaurant is also delicious, but we were only there 4 nights and wanted to explore more). The common areas of the hotel/riad are quiet and cool, with delightful refreshments and treats. The staff were incredibly kind, helpful, knowledgable, and patient. We would stay there again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend.
