“Gorgeous, Peaceful Riad in Heart of Media”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The staff here could not have been more helpful with directions, tours, and dining. The breakfast is superb. The cooking class was beyond expectations- not only did we learn how to make chicken pastille in tagine (a common Moroccan dish), prior to the class we took a tour around the medina to see a local bakery, spice store, and butcher. The well-informed instructions spoke excellent english, and the kitchen was clean and beautifully arranged. Our room had a view of the pool- a true oasis the middle os the busy medina. I couldn't recommend this road more-

My fiance and I spent 12 days traveling throughout Morocco, staying at all 5 star accommodations. Far and away, our favorite was La Maison Arabe. This gem of a riad is just perfect. From the friendly staff to the gorgeous grounds to the fabulous restaurant to the GORGEOUS country club (15 mins by car), the entire experiences was amazing. I would go back to Marrakech just to stay here. We loved our room, too.

Very friendly staff (which is hard to find in Marrakech), excellent spa facilities and great dinning. We tried different restaurants and hammams but our hotel probably had the best and most convenient.

Definitely book a table by the pool to dine one night, the cuisine is incredible and very authentic.

Looking forward to going back and taking my partner there!

Room Tip: Try to get pool view!

Few places tick as many boxes as this. A stunning warren of rooms in combined restored Riads right on the edge of the Medina. We were greeted by charming staff and a cocktail on arrival and the high standards never wavered throughout our stay. You have the choice of 2 classy restaurants, both with traditional live musicians as well as a welcoming bar. The underground hammam is an oasis of tranquility offering all spa treatments as well as henna for children. Regular shuttles to the nearby country club and it's cookery school are the icing on the cake.

With it's location in Old Town, excellent restaurant, old world charm and and modern amenities, the La Maison Arabe. was the perfect way to end our trip to Morocco. The staff was attentive and friendly. This hotel ranks five stars in my book.

Ideal hotel for a stay in Marrakech, wasnt too expensive, located well in the Old town in a beautiful old building (although fairly anonymous from the street). Staff were great, rooms were great, food was lovely, spa was great. Arrived v late on Wednesday before going kite surfing in Essaouira - came back a day early to relax at the hotel as thought it was so nice on first night. Country club idea is hilarious and was perfect for spending last afternoon before heading to airport.

Room Tip: top floor looking over the pool with Balcony and a big bath - cant remember what number
