Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2012

Absolutely loved this place which hasn't lost any of its original charm but boasts all modern facilities. We couldn't fault the service. I could rant on and on about how great it is but it has been more than adequately covered by others, so thought I would add in some things you should do when you're here:
1 take mint tea in the salon
2 take lunch in the central patio area (we recommend the assorted Moroccan entrees washed down with some Moroccan wine)
3 take a cocktail in the Jazz Bar
4 don't miss the fantastic leather goods shop in the Ensemble Artisanale, 5 minutes walk from the hotel, its fixed price, relaxed shopping.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe room with a private terrace, well worth it.

My goodness! My sister took me to Marrakech for my 65th birthday...a sort of senior citizen Carrie Bradshaw trip. We read the reviews for this place and decided this was the one. To say Marrakech was a culture shock for 2 Iowa girls raised on a farm is an understatement! But we never expected to be so welcomed as we were, especially at La Maison Arabe. It started life many years ago as a famous Moroccan restaurant and was turned into this charming little hotel by an Italian prince. We felt like princesses here. The service was so special and they were very helpful to us oldsters and attentive to our needs. The rooms were so beautiful and the food was delicious. I have to admit we were a little worried visiting Morocco, but we never had anything more bothersome than an agressive shopkeeper. The tone of our trip was nicely set by our welcome at this hotel. I would stay here again without any hesitations.

Sadly, we didn't spend the night at Maison Arabe but we ate at the restaurant and drank cocktails in the jazz bar every night. We were very impressed! It's beautiful and the service is outstanding. A gem in a hustle and bustle of Marrakech.

From the moment we were greeted from the airport and chauffeur driven to the Maison Arabe we knew we were going to be staying at a fine place. We walked down a narrow alley way and then through a small side door and were bowled over by its warm surroundings and friendly staff. We had a welcome drink in the courtyard and then a tour of the hotel. It was a maze of rooms ranging from a elegant spa, sophisticated jazz bar and relaxing pool area. It was friendly, smart but not formal. A great combination.
The country club is a must!
Ishlam on reception was so helpful. All the staff were very pleasant.

We felt we were in safe hands the moment we walked in and were ushered over to sit by the pool and served a refreshing orange and carrot juice.
We were in one of the Royal Suites and the room was fantastic. Comfortable, well thought through and with large very clean bathrooms. The roof terrace was the reason we went for the Suite and it was just perfect. We had breakfast there every day looking across the rooftops of Marrakesh and it was the ideal spot for some private sunbathing - and it had a jacuzzi!
The main hotel restaurant in the evening was like a film set. Arranged around the pool, subtly lit and with wonderful food it was a terribly romantic dinner making us both feel very special.
Staff were extremely helpful and efficient - the climb up to the roof terrace to carry up our breakfast was always undertaken with good grace - and at some speed.
The hotel is very convenient for the centre of town.

As soon as we entered La Maison Arabe we knew that we were in for something special. The staff could not have been more helpful and obliging. The atmosphere of the riad was everything we imagined Morocco to be yet it was peaceful and calm inside the riad compared to the hustle and bustle of the main square which was 10 minutes walk away.

We would give the Maison Arabe Six out of Five it was so good. It was a surprise finding it tucked away in the back streets - it's really convenient for Djemaa el Fna but also a pleasant stroll away from the mayhem. The staff at every level were incomparable, absolutely charming and lovely and nothing was too much trouble, they even filled in our departure cards long before we needed them so they were ready for our return flight! The shuttle to the Palmerie piscine proved a lifesaver after the bustle and heat of the medina. I really hope we can return one day. If I had a criticism it was that they were so on top of things we felt they were changing our towels before we had even had time to use them - we would have been happy to hang them back up for reuse but there was no provision for that and I think if you want to help save resources you should be given the opportunity. Other than that it was fabulousness itself!

Room Tip: You are in the medina so it is never going to be silent! Having said that our room was pretty quiet.
