I can't recommend this place highly enough. By the end of our stay it truly felt like a home away from home. The Riad sits in a perfect location, slightly out of the craziness of the souks but just a short walk away.The entire staff was super welcoming and helpful, often going out of their ways to assist us.

The rooms (we stayed two separate weekends) we both fantastic. Plenty of space, so much beautiful and intiricate art throughout the whole building.

The food was fantastic. We loved having breakfast by the pool, eating delicious Moroccan pancakes with nutella and sipping coffee. We had dinner pool side and everything was A+ from service to the food.

We were lucky enough to indulge in a hammam and massage while we were there. It was truly and out of body experience. Soo relaxing and just what the doctor ordered after walking around the souks all day.

We had a blast at the cooking school, and are excited to try our hand at Moroccan food back home. Hasna was fantastic.

Special shout out to Adil, the front desk manager. He was incredibly helpful the whole time we were there. From checking on our lost luggage with the airport, to arranging COVID tests pre-departure, to calling and making reservations and any restaurant we asked him to. The experience wouldn't have been the same without him.

All in all, if you're considering stay here, do yourself a favor and book it! You will not regret it!

I have stayed at many 5 star hotels around the world and La Maison is absolutely flawless! The Maison is gorgeous and embodies the spirit of Morocco. Location is wonderful, and I definitely prefer to stay here over the larger hotels such as La Mamounia. The staff, especially Said at the Jazz bar go above and beyond to be of service and they are so friendly. I highly recommend a stay here when visiting Marrakech. I am already planning a return trip.

This hotel was so beautiful. Every detail seemed perfect for a Morocco experience. The different seating areas in the hotel feel very authentic. The room was clean and spacious.
Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. And the restaurant setting was very pretty around the pool (although I can’t imagine using this pool).
Location was perfect. The market was a 5 min walk and the neighborhood felt safe.
Must try the hammam and cooking class.

Where to begin?

La Maison Arabe is an incredible boutique hotel which manages to achieve great service (maintaining a personal touch) within a truly stunning, traditional Moroccan backdrop that does not disappoint.

From the moment you are welcomed until your final farewell, the staff make you feel fully at home always and nothing feels like too much. Whether you need to make a reservation, need recommendations, require a taxi (and support with the inevitable price negotiation) or simply want to chat, it will always feel seamless, natural and enjoyable when engaging with the team at the hotel.

The hotel is essentially a number of riads which have been purchased and then joined together. So it’s a maze of stairs, corridors and rooms which adds to the traditional feel and the overall experience. Our room, a suite (a complementary upgrade which was very welcomed), was spectacular, with a large bathroom and an amazing terrace with a view overlooking the pool and main restaurant. This was probably the best view in the hotel and at night, with the traditional Moroccan music, ambient lighting and the chatter of people dining was really a sight to behold. The room had a mini bar which was well stocked and not ridiculously priced however they did charge for nespresso pods which was a first for us. Not excessive but a little unusual as coffee is usually free in the room.

The restaurant service was excellent and the food exquisite. A minor observation on the first evening could be made on the speed of the waiter service, but this is Morocco, and a relaxed pace should be expected. We had dinner twice during our stay and would thoroughly recommend it.

Breakfast was a buffet style, with an egg station and a separate pancake station. The service was again, excellent, however our personal preference is towards a table service style of breakfast and the buffet took away some of the charm which you come to look forward to when visiting Marrakesh. Again, this is a personal preference and it shouldn’t detract from the overall experience or expectation.

The room was serviced daily and there was a turn down service which is always good to see. The laundry service was also reasonably priced and efficient. Everything felt very clean and there were no concerns during our stay on this front.

The hotel is well located within easy reach of both the ‘new’ town outside the town walls and the main souk area. Taxis were easy to catch and all drivers know the location of the hotel which is helpful. The hotel warned us about a current scam involving people pretending to work for the hotel approaching you in the street and claiming to be off duty before striking up a conversation and then trying to scam you. I can confirm we had a few attempts ourselves so do be mindful of this! It usually starts with someone coming up to you and saying ‘Remember me, I work in your riad’.
We spent half a day at the country club, which is part of the hotel and approximately 15 minutes away by hotel shuttle. The shuttle runs daily on the hour and also provides the return journey.

We were extremely fortunate to have the country club to ourselves for the entirety of our time there, with full use of the pool along with lunch and bar service. A special thank you to Mohammed who provided excellent, personal service and ensured we were very well looked after. Lunch was excellent and you can charge to the room as if you were in the hotel.

A visit to the country club is an absolute must if staying at the hotel!
Overall, an excellent stay, with top notch service and amazing amenities. Cannot recommend La Maison Arabe enough!

We had a beautiful room overlooking the pool. The noise level was quiet every night. I enjoyed having a complimentary mint tea with small cookies by the pool at the end of a long day. The whole hotel is elegantly decorated and has a world class cooking school too! The staff were gracious and helpful towards us all week. After visiting friends at a few other high class riads in Marrakesh, I determined that La Maison Arabe was the best. We would not want to stay anywhere else if we return to Marrakesh!
