I can not recommend more highly a stay here! The hotel is absolutely fabulous..a wonderful mix of old world charm and luxury. Sure there are bigger , flashier places here ..BUT ...what you will not find is a more passionate team and the elegant charm this place exudes...walking distance to the Medena is a plus ...simply beautiful spa ..and the food is superb in a tranquil setting around the inner sanctum pool. Highly recommend attending their cooking school to hone your tagine skills. Pre dinner drinks in the jazz bar ( Morrocan G&T) with live music is a must and easy to see why Sir Winston Churchill frequented the place. Now my favorite place to stay on the planet! Top marks to Adil and his team !

Hotel's Favourite
Our second stay, and this was just a great as the first. We love it and cannot fault it. A great new addition are the rooms in the Douiria with a gym and new rooftop terrace. The swimming pool provides a welcome cool down in the afternoon and the evening is finished by a cocktail in the Jazz Bar. Very well located for the Souks and main square Jemaa el-Fnaa, which are short stroll away. This is the only place to stay in Marrakech.

This upscale hotel (by Moroccan standards) has absolutely amazing food! The chef is probably the high point of the entire stay, especially his masterful rack of lamb available at each dinner. The breakfast buffet is also extensive. The hotel spa offers hammam (a Turkish bath), which is the unique experience of having your skin thoroughly scrubbed clean while relaxing in a steam room. This can be followed by a very relaxing but not very effective massage. As a warning, if you suffer from asthma, you’ll feel tremendous torture in the steam room, so skip the hammam. La Maison Arabe also has excellent proximity to Jemaa el-Fnaa Square where all the action is. There are a few downsides that prevent this from snagging a five-star rating. There are a lot of pigeons, which isn’t the hotel’s fault. But you’ll see a lot of pigeon poop on your patio and feathers coming through the open-air slotted windows in some of the rooms where the pigeons roost at night. We found all the sinks and the shower to be clogged, and one toilet button and the television were broken, none of which you’d expect to find in an expensive suite. You also won’t find USB ports which is unfortunate in this day and age. But La Maison Arabe is trying hard to offer a fabulous experience in a less developed nation. The staff is absolutely fantastic, and the hotel is definitely a jewel in Marrakech. I highly recommend it!

As a family we spent a marvellous extended weekend at La Maison Arabe. Located in the middle of Marrkech, we spent the mornings sightseeing by walking around, and in the afternoon we enjoyed the country club with its spacious pool. Lunch and dinner were great. Live musics served for a perfect feeling. Hamam for the whole family was just great.

We stayed at La Maison for 4 nights from May21-25 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I first got to know of La Maison because in 2020 during the pandemic, I took up several online cooking lessons with them which I thoroughly enjoyed. They said YES to all my requests to learn even difficult dishes not on their usual menu list. Thanks to Souad (who was still there at that time), Haznah and the dear Dadas! The Riad was beautiful and we loved our douriya room with our own courtyard. We enjoyed the quiet and calm, and the service and staff were impeccable! From Mostafa who booked our room and to the front office staff: Adil, Mourad, Hakim, Ismail, Driss, Raja, Aziz, Mehdi, Ahmed, Fatima and Rachida. The food for lunch and dinner at Le Trois Savoirs was delicious and we enjoyed the Moroccan pancakes everyday. Since we had to check out early even if our flight was still at night, we spent time in their private gardens by the pool where we had a leisurely lunch and when we went back to the Riad, they allowed us to take a shower at their spa to freshen up. I had my free cooking class in their well organized kitchen and enjoyed the lunch immensely. I love La Maison and will recommend it highly!

We stayed at Maison Al Arabe for three nights, what a wonderful experience. The hotel itself is amazing, the pool at the hotel is a stunning setting, the restaurant was excellent, and the country club was worth the transfer time to experience a different setting. I want to commend all the staff, who went above and beyond for the whole duration of our stay - especially Ismail, who was extremely attentive, knowledgable and charming looking after our whole family. I would say this was the best hotel, and the best hotel experience, that our family has ever had. Well done Maison Al Arabe.

My wife and I found La Maison Arabe on an Instagram influencer's YouTube channel. It looked like a spectacular and truly unique riad right on the edge of the Marrakech medina. We checked out the website, confirmed availability, ensured it was within our budget and then booked. The 3 night stay did not disappoint! The room, the staff, the food, the everything..5 stars all around. Truly a unique riad that felt very much like we were staying in a hotel unlike anything we could ever find in the USA. I'd akin this Riad to what Americans might expect from a St. Regis, Intercontinental or hotel of that caliber. But much more intimate. The staff defined the expression "overdeliver" and went that extra mile for us in every way. I'd strongly recommend this riad for anything visiting Marrakech that is seeking a really unique Moroccon hotel experience.
