“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

This hotel was perfect. An excellent hotel in Marrkech--great location, excellent service, and the quaint hotel made my family and I feel very welcome and comfortable.

Definitely Recommend! Best hotel we stayed in in Morocco!

Our group switched to this hotel last minute from one of the larger hotels in Marrakech, and we were really glad we did so. The quaint feel really gives you a taste of Marrakech culture, and because there are so few rooms, the service was really great. Our group had three rooms, all of which were different and nice.

We also did the cooking class that the hotel is known for and absolutely loved it. Really put the rest of our eating on the trip in perspective and I would highly recommend doing the cooking class. Hotel management was also very friendly and wanted to please its guests and ask for any ways to improve the hotel. We had nothing to say to him, as the stay was fantastic.

We also had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant and really enjoyed the food.

I can only recommend this place, it's perfectly located, very elegant and sophisticated, with great facilities, a fantastic restaurant and the most charming and helpful staff one could ask for. They were particularly nice to our children, who felt welcome and well received. The suite was big, cozy, with a super romantic balcony, where we had a nice glass of Moroccon wine offered by the hotel. The riad has many warm and beautiful living rooms, a nice pool and a great hamman. It was the best place we stayed in Morocco.

My familly of 4 loved this riad. We spent our first 4 nights in Morocco here and it was an excellent choice. Ours rooms were a little small but very charming and comfortable. The location was ideal for exploring the medina on our own and with a guide. The staff were extremely helpful with retreiving our lost luggage at the airport and with restaurant recommendations. The in house restaurant was expensive but excellent. We also took a 4 hour cooking class which my teenage children think was the highlight of the trip. Would definitely recommend it.

La Maison Arabe was our home for 5 nights while in Marakech. Warm welcomes at the door, staff to answer every question and fulfill every need. The Hammam was an unforgettable experience which left us feeling awesome, refreshed and cleansed (maybe a little violated but that's ok).
All the meals we had were incredible. Music and ambience in the restaurants was perfect.
My girlfriend was sick during our stay and the staff did everything to help get her better. They sent people to the chemist for me and brought tea to our rooms.
They really went over and above.
The fact that we received complimentary upgrade to a suite definitely doesn't hurt their case for a great review either.
Was sad to leave and would love to go back.

My husband and I got married on December 4th and decided to go to Morocco for our honeymoon. When we arrived at Maison Arabe, we couldn't stop smiling - it was romantic and beautiful on every level, and in every sense. From the amazing room with fireplace and balcony to the wonderful breakfast poolside and the delightful heated pool, to the gorgeous and sexy hammam and jazz bar, we are planning to try and come back every year on our anniversary. The staff were all kind and extremely accommodating and the location was terrific. We can't say enough extraordinary things about this place and are so happy it was part of our honeymoon.

From the time we got to the riad to the taxi leaving we were greeted with the best service you could imagine! The small riad is home to a maze of winding stairs with two great restaurants, enchanting live music, and memories you won't forget! After having a great meal one of the nights, we decided we wanted to have the tea back in our room. After asking if the tea in our room was possible, the server replied, "For you, all is possible!" (We decided that was the motto at this riad!) We left the restaurant, then noticed one of the servers at the restaurant door waiting for us to leave to follow us with tea and cookies. We arrived to the room and to our surprise noticed for the second time in one day the room was cleaned! After we sat down to enjoy our tea we busted out laughing because we really did feel like a king and queen!

The riad does have a really nice hammam, but is very pricy. The hammam (spa) is something you absolutely have to experience! Just look in some guide books to tell you the best one to go to!

Walking distance to the medina was not bad at all and we found it very safe! There is not much nightlife we found outside the riad, but the riad is complete with a piano bar and plenty of room to enjoy the riad and friends at night.
