“An amazing hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

My wife and I stayed at La Maison Arabe in Marrakech for three nights as part of an extensive trip around Morocco. We had already experienced some terrific Riads in Rabat, Fes and Ouarzazate but La Maison Arabe was easily the best accommodation we stayed in during our Moroccan trip. In fact, La Maison Arabe may be the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. Certainly nothing springs to mind that we would say was better. The level of individual service provided by the staff at La Maison Arabe has to be experienced to be believed. They even gave us a cellular phone with the number of the Riad already entered so that we could call if we ever had any problems while visiting the city. In addition to the service (which is really what sets this hotel apart from others) the room was extremely well appointed and the other facilities were simply world class. We were so sorry to have to leave La Maison Arabe (and Marrakech it has to be said) as we moved on to our next part of the trip.

This place is first class.
The decor is charming with nice rooms filled with antiques and unique carpets.
They also have a cooking school where we learned how to make a tagine. The staff is first class as well.

We stayed at La Maison Arabe in the middle of November 2013.
The hotel is tucked away down a quiet street about 20 minutes walk from the main square. It has a quiet unassuming entrance which leads into a beautiful interior of 6 raids beautifully decorated with a cool courtyard.
Our room was tastefully decorated in typical Moroccan style. The hotel has two excellent restaurants ( one indoors specialising in Moroccan food and one outside for Moroccan and international food).
There is also a villa outside of the city owned by the hotel which has an outdoor pool etc. this is 20 minutes away via free hotel taxi and when we were there, there were only 4 other people. It was like having your own villa.
The staff at the hotel were very very polite and attentive.
The main square and souks are only 20 mins away walking distance and the whole area was very safe and the Moroccan people in general very welcoming and helpful

La Maison Arabe is a very special place, and one of the best small hotels
we have ever stayed in. It's located within walking distance of
everything we wanted to see in Marrakesh: the old marketplace, the main square,
the new city, and even the Jardin Majorelle. We were able to go
to all by foot. The service at the hotel was flawless and personalized, friendly
without being too much so, just perfect. Our room (called "Noor"), although up
quite a few stairs, was beautifully decorated, and had two private terraces;
well worth the climb. We especially enjoyed the atmosphere at night, between the candlelit
salons and patios, the musicians, the great ambiance in the piano bar, and dinner overlooking the pool.
Magical! My husband and I were totally seduced by the city of Marrakesh.
Just wish we had left more space in our luggage, Marrakesh is a shopper's
paradise.

I recently went to Marrakesh and stayed at La Maison Arabe. I somehow got booked in this beautiful suite. The room is well apponted with traditional Moroccan furnishing. The service at the hotel was amazing and they attended to your every whim with a smile. For example, I informed that I was heading out to the souk on my own (as a single woman) and without prompting they provided me with a local cell phone to insure that if I needed help I could easily reach the hotel and have someone come get me.
