Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 January 2017

We had a very special experience in La Maison Arabe which enhanced our overall experience of Marrakech. The minute we arrived the service levels were superb, from the pick up at the airport from Abdellah to the lovely greeting at the front desk from Nourredine. The hotel itself is a beautiful Riad, we were upgraded to a deluxe suite which was very spacious and exquisitely laid out. We ate out on a couple of occassions but the food could not compare to the in house restaurant Les Trois Saveurs. We ate here twice and on both occasions the food was superb. The restaurant has a beautiful poolside location and it is where they also serve breakfast. Our favourites were the Lamb couscous, Fish Tagine and the Morrocan Pancakes at breakfast with a honey and almond paste. The service at dinner was again exceptional with nothing being a problem, thanks Mohammed.
Being in the centre of the Medina meant it was the ideal location to visit the souks and the Jemaa El fnaa square. It is very easy to get lost so make sure you get your bearings from the start.
We loved the whole experience from the snakecharmers to the calls to prayer that makes Marrakech a very unique destination.

Room Tip: The rooms over the pool are serviced by a lift and have their own balconies.

I must start by saying that I have been to La Maison Arabe a number of times now but I wanted to give you an idea of what it is that keeps me coming back. First of all, it is a gorgeous place to be, both visually and in the olfactory sense. The quality of the rooms is excellent, with beautiful furnishings, ornaments and artwork in every room and the public areas are charming, with a very warm swimming pool at the moment and an absolutely beautiful hammam and spa with fantastic people looking after you and highly skilful staff. It has absolutely excellent wifi everywhere and the usual business facilities. Both restaurants are excellent, in terms of food and the setting of the Trois Saveurs by the pool is beautiful both at breakfast and for dinner. In short, it is a lovely place to be which combines the old and new.
But it has an X factor. The staff. They are efficient, attentive, friendly, playful, have a sense of humour and make your stay truly memorable. We turn up for a few days each year and within minutes of arrival we've relaxed and started to be looked after. Nothing is too much trouble and they are extraordinarily kind whilst knowing exactly what they're doing, and they do it with charm. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Pick the patio side if you want more traditional rooms but there are lots of steps. The pool side ha...

I have been here twice, once dinner in the courtyard and the other inside, both times absolutely fantastic - the lamb tagine is divine, staff are fantastic and atmosphere is great....this place has an amazing history, it's the oldest Riad in Marrakesh, it was Winston Churchill's favourite place eat. It's down a little alley way from the main road, so don't be alarmed. It's best to get your pick up sorted as the taxi drivers will try and charge you an arm and a leg to get home. The courtyard is best when the weather is hot but inside is best when it's cold, and it does get cold in January.

The entrance to the restaurant isn't what I'd expected when we arrived. It wasn't like we were able to get out of the car and step into the establishment.

Once inside it was authentic Moroccan setting. Staff were dressed in Moroccan dress and Moroccan music was playing. There was a relaxed sense about the place that even if one arrived feeling stressed, it would melt their stresses away.

The food is amazing.... the taste is awesome and the tenderness of the dish was perfect. I can't fault anything about my diner experience at La Maison Arabe.

One of the best hotels I stayed at. Impeccable service, great facilities and perfect location near the square. Did I mention the service? They try to accommodate any request, the staff is very attentive and courteous. This is the best place to stay in Marrakech.
