5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

sono tornato con la mia amica giorgia in marocco perché ci mancava. e non potevamo non trascorrere una notte a marrakech in questo splendido riad, i cui proprietari ormai sono diventati come amici. se volete un posto tranquillo, affidabile, pulito, bellissimo, centrale e volete sentirvi coccolati e consigliati, bè, questo riad è cio' che fa per voi! david

I went back to Morocco with my friend Giorgia because we missed it. ANd we couldn't but spend one night in marrakech in this wonderful riad, whose owners have become our friends! If you wish to spend your days in marrakech in a quiet, reliable, secure, clean, beautiful, central place, and you wish to be cuddled and advised, this is the riad you must absolutely go to! david

Rispondo in Italiano a questi** Amici del Riad**in quanto il mio Inglese al confronto é superficiale.Mi dispiacere che le volte che sono venuti da noi,anche se brevemente,o stavo per partire o non c'ero proprio. Quanto sembra il nostro Staff ha saputo ricevere con altrettanta premura, forse é anche il luogo che affascinae richiama i nostri ospiti, Shukran, siate sempre i benvenuti,spero di poter spendere piu' tempo con voi le porte della vostra casa Marrachi sono sempre aperte.

Our family of four stayed at the riad for four days during the month of August. We traveled with our two children (8 & 9) and stayed in the family suite, which was not only beautiful, but also roomy. The entire hotel was immaculate (even the bathroom in our room was beautiful & clean). Our room also had air conditioning and wifi. Since we were there in August I just want to point out that the hotel has a plunge pool (although small, we were very grateful for it!) The raid was close enough to the main square to walk, but far enough to have a quiet's night's sleep. Also, we were able to do laundry for very cheap. A large laundry bag cost us about 200 dirhams ($25). A great breakfast (including fresh fruit, coffee, tea, croissants, fresh bread, jam, etc..) was served beside the pool every morning. Mohammed attended to our every need and made us feel like family. The raid would not have been the same without the attentiveness of the staff.

Fantastic that you shared those priority

Our family stayed here at easter 2013. The riad is well situated in the centre of Marrakech, and most attractions are within walking distance.
The rooms are well equipped with storage space and a mini safe. We missed reading lamps though.
The roof terrace is very nice, and attended all day. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, always at your service. They really go out of their way for you.
Warmly recommended!

We couldn't have asked for a better setting for our holiday with our children (aged 9 and 11). Having debated whether we should stay at a large hotel, we opted for the uniqueness and charm of a riad. Maison Arabo Andalouse is full of charm, beautifully restored to retain its original features (carved celings, painted doors, tiled floors) with a cool inner courtyard with a small swimming pool and a wonderful roof terrace. The riad is perfectly located for all the major sights of Marrakesh, including Djema el Fna square. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and all have air-conditioning. Some reviews focus on the dark rooms (ask for a room with windows overlooking the courtyard and some have their own terrace) but riads were built like that for a reason - they keep the inside cool and the noise outside. However, Maison Arabo Andalouse's best feature by far is how it treats each of its guests as family, providing a home away from home. GianPaolo and his staff provide a wonderful warm and friendly service and made every aspect of our stay so easy, from airport pick-up, to recommending local eateries, helping us organise a day-trip with the kids.(they recommended a couple of water parks but we never went - Marrakesh is far too much fun and the riad offered everything we needed after a day out) and the lovely mint tea and hot chocolate provided on the roof terrace every night. Breakfast is provided at your convenience, a variety of fresh breads, pancakes, different fruits every day and eggs on request (all the food is locally sourced). We opted for dinner at the riad on the last night and were treated to a wonderful feast in a magical, candle-lit setting (its pricier than many local restaurants but the food is fresh, its quality outstanding and the setting is unbeatable). We all left with heavy hearts but knowing we have found somewhere truly special to return to someday. Highly recommended and take the kids!

I don't understand great part of others Riads they don't like to have family with kids,perhaps me I am specially fortunate because I received till now very Special persons,even the kids educate and well appreciate. Thanks,for having reply at the previous guest who complain about the light,you exactly said the trough I can't make modification in a House more than 100 Years old trying to let more light to get inside, at summer time with more than 50 degree centigrade.............
We are not perfect,but with the staff we try to do our best,without necessary looking the profit,if property of sheets or towels one fruit or vegetable or all kind of local product don't satisfy us immediately it's changed,but not through away,a lot of people need a help.
Thanks for all your positivity,we will not forget you,you are not commune

We chose this riad based on the trip advisor feedback and were not disappointed. Location-wise, it is very conveniently located within a short walk of many of marrakech's main attractions and restaurants. Despite this centrality, the riad is sheltered from the noise and dirt of the main streets- located down a smart little side street. The building is a genuine riad- a 100 year old town house with beautifully preserved original interiors and a charming little courtyard with pines and a pool. The elegant furnishing reflects the owner's background in design. However, it was the quality of the service which really made the visit. On arrival, we were greeted by the lovely housekeeper Fatima and then introduced to the Italian owner, Paolo, who took the time to tell us about the Riad and then even led us for a walk towards the square to orient ourselves. We were then upgraded to a spacious double with an additional annexe room. Unfortunately, I had food poisoning while I stayed and was stuck inside for a day. Paolo and his staff were wonderful- checking I was ok, giving advice and even preparing appropriate food free of charge. Paolo's caring approach really gave a home from home when I felt rubbish and my girlfriend was having to put up with it. Overall, MAA is a wonderful, well-kept Riad which provides a great base for exploring Marrakech.

We stayed in Maison Arabo Andalouse for two nights. Paolo was very helpful, explained us where to go and what to see, all in detail. The terrace is fantastic as well as the rooms.
Very warm welcome, perfect location. Pickup at the airport, transfer back to the airport, all just great.
Highly recommended.

My Friend Two days it's really short for visiting Marrakesh,it' seams you leave very intensive moment with your family and relatives for that reason I was particularly full of suggestions to give to you.
It was also a pleasure to share with your groupe and others hosts, on the big terrace the delicious water- melons and different ""Beldi"" (local)fruits always well accepted,carefully selected by our staff.
I hope to have more hosts from your fascinating country.

The stay at Arabo Andalouse is one of varying complexities, indifferent service and excellent canapés. Mohamed is the real star in this mildy blattaria infested hotel. His warmth and service were very welcoming on arrival and his English surpasses that of his colleagues. The rooms are clean, warm and, despite the Vitamin D deficiency, all together very pleasant. Paulo is a true gentleman and made us feel at home. His Italian touch (literally) and Spanish decor means that every night is a 'buenas noches'. He was kind enough to share a glass of wine with us, which was a lovely touch, especially when i could barely see the glass and put on a fabulous spread of canapés...which i will harp on about because they were so delicious, especially the cooked ones. Overall, a lovely place to stay in Marrakech and a fantastic Riad. Paulo...sorry i ate your dinner mate!

Dear mate,....... your fantastic review it's little bit to deep for my poor English but I've understand the meaning,.....generation conflict........it was warmly and friendly share with your friends and others guests a Moroccan Tapas,don't worry wasn't my Dinner.
The only complain I have, way you didn't tell us about ""Blattaria"" on 7 years Riad management happen two time that we find same of innocuously insect, as you know I found anywhere except on the North Polo,now we are making more deepest control on the Patio garden side. For sure we will not cut the Oranges, Tangerines,Bananas and Palms trees for 2 INSECTS.
Next time I will give you a aseptic Suite on top floor.
