A group of us (3) stayed in a suite within this delightful Riad which is tucked away in the Heart of the old town, only a 6/7 min walk from the Jemaa el-Fna. If you are looking for a true Moroccan experience within a luxury setting then this is the place to be. The staff are at your service with a smile at all times, happy to make bookings and arrange trips at your requests. The in-house restaurant is suburb serving breakfast by day and transforming into an idyllic oasis by night. The food was delicious and service second to non. Would definitely return to this Riad in the future!!

Had a throughly enjoyable time at this riad/boutique hotel. Yes, the rooms were beautifully appointed, clean, and the beds very comfortable. Yes, the location was central and we could walk to the souks and the square, but it is the staff that wins you over above all else. Ahmed gave us a wonderful half day guided tour of Morocco, We definitely needed this and learnt so much about Morocco, its people and its history. We couldn't have navigated the souks without him. Mr Adil Chaif and other staff at the concierge desk were very professional and helpful. Badr, the manager of the restaurant arranged a beautiful surprise birthday cake for my friends birthday along with restaurant staff singing traditional berber music to her. It was done beautifully without a hint of cheesiness! The food in the restaurant was the best we tasted during our 3 day stay and we had already dined at the renowned Comptoir Restaurant. The late 4.30pm checkout made our last day in Morocco so much easier and relaxing. A very personalised service overall. After the constant hassling in the souks and the square, the continuing effort required to avoid the rip off merchants, the beautiful, surreal and tiring experience of trekking in the Atlas Mountains, this was a haven of tranquility to come back to. This is not the sort of city where you can get away with staying in a mediocre place.

A beautiful riad in the centre of Marrakech with attentive and charming staff and mmmmarvelous food. La piece de la resistance has to be the spa, I could while away more than a few days in there without surfacing for air. The accompanying country club is a short drive away and is a lovely bit of respite from the busy Marrakech streets.
The heat was a factor in August, I won't lie, and not all of the riad is air conditioned but the rooms, reception and dining room are so it's not a problem. I would definitely, without hesitation, recommend the riad.

We did not stay here but did enjoy our best meal in Marrakech in the beautiful dining area by the pool. The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the setting exquisite. We highly recommend this Riad/Hotel for a romantic dining experience.

Loved this hotel, the staff, decor, facilities, wonderful. The cooking school class was in a state of the art kitchen, highly recommended. The hotel is an oasis to the outside hustle of Marrakesh. The long breakfasts were delightful sitting by the pool and the restaurant was very elegant. The hotel provides a delightful Moroccan experience within the Medina. A day of rest at the hotel's country club property offers a relaxing lunch under the olive trees and lazing in the luxury cabanas by a fabulous pool.

Excellent from start to finish. The staff were outstanding with all the time in the world to help you (Hisham, in particular). Quiet away from the Souks but close enough to walk in 10 minutes. The hammam was excellent. We had one of the royal suites with a rooftop terrace - could not ask for more space or comfort.

... and another WOW ! My wife and I recently had a vacation in Morocco. Passing a few days through Marrakech, Ouarzazate and then the Sahara, the last leg of our trip was in Agadir. Apart from Royal Air Maroc, everything on this trip until Agadir was beyond perfection, in every way.

Le Riad (Hotel) Maison Arabe is sheer perfection. Rooms, service, meals, and everything in between is simply on the spot. We could not have hoped for a better first immersion into the Moroccan lifestyle than this hotel. Do not hesitate to go to this hotel ... you will never regret it.

P.S.: in addition, the interior architecture is absolutely breathtaking.
