“Stunning food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We ate there last night. The bar is more fun than the fine dining and you are not restricted on the menu options. We were spoilt for choice, the menu was so varied. The atmosphere was relaxed with a piano player who nearly hit all the right notes.... Food and service were fantastic, highly recommended, it doesn't get its number one status for nothing! We'd most certainly stay there next time as by day the hotel and amenities were first class.

I had the pleasure to stay at La Maison Arabe as part of a birthday party and I was most impressed by the service and friendliness of all their staff.
It is very homely and individual and I would recommened this wonderful hotel to anybody.
It was the absolute highlight of my Marocco holiday all the way from Australia.
Thank you very much.

Of all the hotels we have stayed at, La Maison Arabe it's the only one we stayed twice. The hotel has two parts. The older rooms are full of character and nicely decorated in the old part of the building, the newer part of the hotel has more modern rooms, which they are also lovely but more modernly decorated. The restaurant at the hotel is really good, would recommend to try it if you have time, as there is so many good places to eat in Marrakech... It also worth going to the out of town gardens and pool belonging to the hotel, there is a complementary bus service and its a nice place to visit and relax. No need to say, that if we ever go,back to Marrakesh we'll be staying in La Maison Arabe.

We stayed here with two other couples as part of a Moroccan tour and it was the best of the trip. Our room overlooked the pool and restaurant area and had views of the nearby mosque. The service here was simply the best. Staff at the front desk knew our names immediately and treated us to a healing rosemary, thyme and lavender tea when we mentioned we had stomach troubles. Our room was spacious with two flat screen TVs, a wonderful bathroom, great WIFI connection, and a comfortable bed. We simply loved it here!

This restaurant is the very best genuine Moroccan food you can have in Marrakesh at the most beautiful Ryad in a decor and atmosphere that complete the experience to a level you will not find anywhere else. We have been to other top rated restaurants in Marrakesh during our trip but this one is our #1. The service is impeccable , the live music is a charm and the Moroccan wine list is a great treat.

Room Tip: If you have a chance come back in the following night and have a night at the Jazz Bar - Great Piano...

My girlfriend and I spent four fantastic nights here recently for my 50th birthday celebration. Marrakech was wonderful and exotic, and the hotel made our stay equally memorable. We had read the good reviews before making our booking, but the hotel surpassed our expectations.

The service, from the moment we arrived to when we left, was exceptional - all the staff was friendly, attentive, and nothing was too much trouble. I have stayed in a lot of top hotels around the world - La Maison Arabe ranks as one of the best, in terms of service. They have managed to combine luxury with that special, personal touch.

All the little touches, that many institutions find so difficult to accommodate, seem to come naturally to the staff here. Nothing was too much trouble. For example, when we asked one morning about where best to buy some bottled water, we were promptly presented with two bottles for free. When we asked whether we could order dinner from one of the two restaurants to be brought to our room (as we preferred the menu to the room service menu), we were reassured, without hesitation, that it would be no problem at all. I know what the answer would have been in a lot of hotels.

We were even given a local mobile phone to use for free on our daily trips around the souks, in case we got lost (which we did once or twice). As we were leaving the hotel on the last day to go to the airport, the manager heard us talk about buying some biscuits or sweets at the airport, as gifts, and suggested to us that it would be much cheaper to buy these in town. He then instructed the hotel driver to take us to a local patisserie before taking us on to the airport. By the way, he was right, of course. We were also given a late check-out at no extra charge as our flight was not until late afternoon.

The hotel itself is beautifully decorated with charm and elegance. There are lots of lovely, secluded areas, where you can chill and relax. There is so much character in every corner of this hotel that was apparently put together from several riads. We stayed in a spacious and tranquil, deluxe room with our own balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. It would have been nice to have spent more time taking advantage of our lovely balcony, but we were too busy exploring Marrakech.

The food in the restaurants was also very good. We ate in the hotel as well as in the top ranked restaurant in Marrakech, and we had lovely meals in both. Dinner around the candle-lit pool in the hotel, whilst being serenaded by Moroccan musicians, is a must for romance.

Breakfast is also served around the pool. Although we could have had breakfast served to us on our own balcony as well, we didn't take advantage of that option as it was so lovely to start the day with a relaxing breakfast around the pool in the morning. The restaurant staff, as elsewhere in the hotel, were very friendly, and attentive without being intrusive.

The hotel also has a great spa - the spa itself is a lovely candle-lit grotto. My girlfriend and I both had very good treatments there.

Location-wise, the hotel is located conveniently about 10-15 mins walk from the Djemaa el-Fna square, so it is close enough to all the sights, but also tucked away in a quieter corner.

We would definitely recommend this hotel, and would love to stay there if we visit Marrakech again.

We've just returned form a fabulous long weekend in Marrakech, staying at La Maison Arabe. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite, and shortly after our bags were delivered our fresh complimentary cocktails arrived. This was a lovely room, and nothing was too much for the friendly and courteous staff. We enjoyed an excellent meal in the traditional Moroccan restaurant on site.
the highlight was the Moroccan cookery class we signed up to on our last afternoon. This was the highlight of our trip - and we enjoyed the results after the end of the course.

A lovely hotel that is a little bit of luxury, in a fascinating city.

Room Tip: All rooms seen were excellent. I think wherever you are, you will probably hear the call to prayer...
