This riad-hotel is supposed to be the first riad in Marrakech. The structure and architechture are traditional and typical of Marrakech, with a lot of woodwork, tiles and courtyards. In the rooms, all the doors are covered with leather, ours had a little balcony-terrace.
The staff was very friendly and attentive, always ready to help with any request or question. They suggested restaurants, atracctions, escorted us to nearby restaurants, provided transportation from Fes, and to the airport.
We had dinner at their restaurant the first night, it was very good and served in the lovely courtyard with live music and beautiful moroccan lighting. Breakfast was served in the same courtyard with the pool in the center, it was a buffet with traditional western and also moroccan items. Their pastry was made in house. There was a moroccan "pancake" station where you had your choice of fillings for the "pancakes" that were really good.
The best part was the cooking school course that I attended. The ladies(translator and "dada") were amazing and made it a great experience. I really liked our stay here. There are more luxurious hotels in Marrakech, but La Maison Arabe felt like a more personal and authentic Moroccan experience.
