“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

A group of us stayed at this hotel in September for a birthday weekend away and this was mine and my husbands first time experiencing Marrakech. The hotel is right near the the town centre so going into the hotel you get a true taste of Marrakech and its busy streets!
As soon as you entre the hotel though you feel safe and welcome, the staff are friendly and Paolo who owns the riad is very kind and helpful when planning your trips around the area with his extense knowledge.
If you want a true experience of Marrakech then this is the best place to stay!!

I booked this hotel willing to try to experience a nice and comfortable accomodation but with the morocan taste while staying in La medina which is the old main area of Marrakech. I got everything i was expecting and more.... G.Paolo, the owner of this place and his staff took care of me and my friends like nobody else would have done it in a big hotel.
The place has 8 rooms with a nice roof terrace and everything is beautifully decorated.
The location is perfect as while it is in la Medina, you can walk easyly to the main avenues of Marrakech and so it is possible to enjoy the modern and the old city.
I have traveled all over the world and this is the kind of place that a traveler would love to find in every city...
G. Paolo will take care of you in every detail, you will feel like the most important guest.

Hotel in the heart of the medina, which was central to all sights. Owner and staff made us feel so welcome and attended to our every need/wish. The atmosphere of this hotel made our stay in Marrakech exceptional. Thank you to everyone at Maison Arabo Andalouse!

Room Tip: We had a terrace overlooking the plunge pool which we loved!

Such an oasis of peace, good taste and casual hospitality in bustling Marrakech. Although located only a few minutes walk from the city centre, inside the Kasbah, the only sound you can hear in your room is the occasional clacking of the storks, nesting on the neighbouring Palais El Badii.
Because we like to travel, and because I also travel a lot for work, I have stayed in many a hotel, but I have never felt so welcome and taken care of (without being pushy) as in the Maison Arabo Andalouse.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here a few weeks ago and can't recommend it enough. The place is perfect, rooms are really nicely decorated -ours had a lovely outside terrace space that was really nice to relax in at night. Perfect location. Although the place is great and couldn't be nicer, our favourite part of the stay was Paulo and the staff that worked there. Had never been to Marakkesh before and they made us feel very at home. NOthing was too much trouble for them!!! From recommendations of places to go to making sure we had had enough to eat for breakfast before we left for the day! They were amazing.... would never stay anywhere else if we went back....

It is definitely not easy to find - but once you are there you are quite comfortable. Rooms were clean, very spacious, and comfortable. Paolo and his staff are amazing and make you feel at home. They cannot do enough for you during your visit and always go out of there way to make sure you have everything you need to include direction to the local attractions, day trips, or desert excursions. Mohamed is wonderfully extraordinarily accommodating. I would steal him to work in my Riad if I owned one.

Can only whole heartedly endorse many of the previous positive comments about the place. A lovely place to stay, in a great location. Five minutes walk from the Djemaa el Fnaa, and within walking distance of many of the other sights of Marrakech. Arabo Andalouse has a calm, relaxed and luxurious feel to it, and is easy and safe to get back to on an evening once you know where it is. Our room was air conditioned, scrupulously clean, and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was a freshly made treat. In Mohammed we felt that we had someone who was on our side, and for whom nothing was too much trouble. He looked after us wonderfully during our stay, and was always willing to help and give us the benefit of his local knowledge. Highly recommended!
