Reviewed 14 July 2012

Pleasant staff, great rooms, very good location and an all around gem makes this hotel a 5 star experience. Don't bother w Mamounia which is too big and stay here. I had a hamam at the Spa which was spotless and breakfast had a great spread. Of the 7 hotels I stayed in while traveling Morocco, La Maison Arabe was by far the best.

Me & my wife stayed here for three nights from July 7th.

As the previous reviews state it's in an excellent location,less than ten mins to the square & Souks.
The hotel is like Aladdins cave,with lots of small courtyards,rooms and authentic passageways.

The restaurant looks over the pool and is romantic at night with candles all around.
We ate there one night,we had a Tangines which was very good,although a little on the small side compared to the one we ate at AlFassia.we had a beautiful lunch,a chicken sandwich, it had a wonderful taste of spices.

The staff were so friendly,polite & professional, we was greeted by a warm smile,good morning/evening every time we saw someone. The hotel arranged out half day walking tour,taxi to Al Fasia rest & was always very helpful with every enquiry we made. Adiel at the front desk was so efficient with our check in and tour of hotel.

Our room was very clean and authentic,every time we went out they came inane made the room up.

Rashid in the jazz bar loves to make cocktails and we can recommend you try them, he is an excellent host.

I had a Hamman/massage which was good.

We went to the Mk Maison for dinner and was socked how small and not authentic compared to la maison, good meal though.

We also spent. To the day at the country club they own, a ten min courtesy bus ride away. It was peaceful with lots of layout beds, there are four tents with double beds in to relax, we had lunch as well. The facilities at la maison are not as good to lay out.

If you are in any doubt wether to book this, Do it, you will not regret it.

This gorgeous riad hotel is in the heart of the medina – so shopping in the souk is just outside the front door. The design of La Maison Arabe is a mix of traditional Moroccan tiled columns, interior fountains, marble floors and European antiques, artwork, sumptuous linens and old world comfort and service. I've stayed in luxury hotels many times and this one has all of the amenities of a larger place with the charm of a boutique hotel. The staff, especially Madam Nabila the manager and the front desk guys, couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. The two restaurants serve delicious food - Moroccan and International, and the spa / wellness center is top notch with traditional hammam, massage and all the rest. Great. I'll be back with friends and family.

Room Tip: The hotel is very quiet day and night.

We arrived tired and I was coughing. The staff were wonderful. They kept bringing warm "remedies" to my room (and they did help). The rooms were large, exotic and beautiful I awoke each morning to birds singing just outside my window. We ate in each restuarant and enjoyed all. The last night we were having wine in one of the quite courtyards and they brought our dinner there. Everyone was so accomodating. The hammam experience was not to be missed,. We did one for couples and were so relaxed, I wasn't sure I could walk! Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back. It is a great location for all the most interesting walks and sights of the "old city."

Room Tip: Each room is different. Our suite was upstairs in older section. Both room and bath were great!

We spent 5 days at La Maison Arabe (March 2011), and thus ended our trip to Marrakech. The words are too poor to describe the La Maison Arabe, you must see and stay to get a bit of the energy and the magic of space.
Just wonderful !!!
Thank you very much for the wonderful hospitality!!!

Delightful Riad/ Hotel. A great mix of authentic Moroccan tradition with modern service and facilities. 10 minute walk from the Souks and sites of Marrakech. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food and comfortable bar/lounge. Cooking school and Hamam both worth doing in hotel. We had a wonderful time.

Would recommend a trip to their Country Club which has an excellent pool and the staff "cook up" a great barbecue. We would also recommend a trip to the Atlas mountains and guided walk around the city to "get your bearings" which the concierge can organise.

Room Tip: Rooms with terraces worth the extra. Cant vouch for the fitness centre as we didn't look for it.
