Enjoyed every minute of my stay. I was pleasantly surprised after a one night stay in another riad in another city that did not meet my expectations. Maison did....and more. My room was wonderful. The only exception was-no clock. But that can be worked around. Loved the location. The staff were all very friendly, patient and helpful. The food was excellent. The same can be said for the Country Club. A very elegant and nice break from the rigors of sight seeing!

Room Tip: I was in room 228 just a few steps up from the front desk. Two of the windows were directly above th...

it was our first trip to Morocco and we found it was a bit daunting to be harrassed in the street whenever we left the hotel, but La Maison Arabe was beautifully peaceful and the service from all the staff we came across was exceptional. We also visited the country club outside the town where the service was fabulous.Also the spa was first class.

An exotic oriental dream come true, the riad has several courtyards where one can loll about in a food or wine induced stupor while enjoying a cool breeze at night. The spa is just beautiful. There is also a country club with an even bigger swimming pool that is right outside of the city and accessible by free shuttle from the hotel. We were treated to a Morroquito, the alcoholic version of the Moroccan mint tea (is basically a slightly exotic mojito).

Lovely hotel with beautiful Moroccan features and design. Large spacious rooms. The food was nice in the evening but breakfast was limited. The staff were all very friendly. The pool is small and cold but the sunbathing areas are lovely. The hotel is in a good location. Really enjoyed Marrakech.

Ghaffouli, General Manager at La Maison Arabe, responded to this review, 7 October 2013
Dear Madam,
Thank you for your feedback and kind word regarding La Maison Arabe.
We begin heating our on-site swimming pool soon, and it remains heated during the winter months; we regret you found it cold during your stay with us. We would like to mention to readers that our pool is 14 meters long, which is large for the medina, where space is so constrained. Your review suggests you unfortunately may not have taken advantage of our second swimming pool, which is set in a luxuriant garden property, reserved exclusively for our hotel guests, and located 15 minutes away from the hotel by complimentary shuttle.
Our breakfast buffet includes, among other things, a selection of freshly squeezed fruit juices, fresh fruit salad, homemade yogurt, homemade breakfast pastries, organic eggs prepared your way, a selection of cereals, and Moroccan breakfast crepes cooked before our guests. This week we are adding additional varieties of cheese and ham to those already included in the buffet. Nevertheless, we are sorry you found the breakfast limited. I would very much appreciate it if you could contact me at gm@lamaisonarabe.com with your suggestions as to how we could improve our breakfast.
I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back soon to La Maison Arabe.
Best regards,
Taoufik Ghaffouli
General Manager

My wife and I consider ourselves pretty seasoned travelers having been to about 50 countries and stayed in over 150 commercial accommodations from mega luxury to modest and from one night to weeks in the last decade or so.
After the grueling and tediously boring 8+ hours train trip from Fes, we arrived in Marrakech and were met by a pleasant English speaking guide exactly as booked with La Maison Arabe. We were taken a short drive in a modern aircon'd Mercedes van to the hotel and escorted into the lobby where we were pleasantly greeted by a number of staff. A lovely gesture was moist scented cool face-washer/towelettes to dab of the dust and grime of the journey. From that moment on throughout our stay, every member of the staff was overtly concerned for our comfort and well-being We mentioned we needed to freshen up and that there was no lunch or even any refreshment on the train. We were efficiently checked-in, then guided through the interesting adjoining buildings that comprise this riad to our room.
The room was light bright and well appointed with a small separate sitting area, mini-bar, flat screen TV and balcony overlooking the swimming pool. The bathroom was modern and well appointed with toiletries and plenty of towels.
A nice touch was rose petals dotted around that added to the welcome.
Within just a few moments there was a knock on the door, and a staff member presented a tray of cheese and fruit and tea with compliments of the management (responding that we had had no lunch). This was a thoughtful and appreciated touch and one of just many we experienced over the next few days. For example, the first day at breakfast I selected a home made yoghurt from the buffet and placed in on my table. I did the same thing the second day. On the third day, before I got to the yoghurt, the attentive waiter had already placed it on our table. Another was my wife asked the in-house pastry chef for a vanilla millefeulle. He hadn't made any that day but did so the next and one was brought to our room for her. I needed to get a sole glued onto a sneeker and asked the porter where a cobbler was located and practically had to fight him off taking it for repair for me, explaining I really wanted the experience.
We both enjoyed lovely treatments in the day spa, an amusing session in their cooking school (not fine dining but fun nevertheless). All the meals and wine at their outlets were internationally good standard which thoroughly we enjoyed.
Everyday there was attention and care. This is not the flashest hotel or the biggest or even the most luxurious - but it was the best we have ever experienced in terms of welcome and constant discreet attention and effort to make our stay comfortable, enjoyable and fulfilling.
The owner also has a country club a short drive out of town where we spend a pool-side afternoon taking lunch and relaxing in the cool gardens.
If we ever have occasion to go back to Marrakeck, we would stay here again.
