      Fabulous La Maison Arabe

      The service is second to non in what i believe has to be the best riad/mansion in Marrakesh. Room 218 was gorgeous and the food was fabulous.

      Historical Traveler Reviews La Maison Arabe Marrakech

      Just perfect

      from

      this boutique hotel is just perfect

      The room we had " Dalila " have a lot of arabian charm ; The service is excelent ;

      we had the best moroccan food at theire moroccan restaurant, and the cooking work shop we did joined was very interesting .

      We will come back for sure and we will recommend this place

      Avoid the food

      from

      I agree with the member from Spain that the riad was lovely, staff helpful, pool and garden tranquil and sadly we had the same experience with the food. We travelled by train from Fes during which we all ate very little, arriving at La Maison Arabe for supper. My husband spent the night and next day with an upset stomach. And yes, he did have the fish pastille whereas we didn't. He lost out on a whole day of our holiday, staying at the Riad with the immodium (which we'd brought). Hygiene standards are obviously different from those in the west and I guess travellers just have to be aware of this, whatever the type of hotel/restaurant.

      Lovely Riad, but ...

      from

      I share the view of many of those who have written reviews about La Maison Arabe - it is an exceptional hotel, for Morroco in particular (and see my review for Riads in Meknes if you'd like to know how bad they can be!)

      Both the public areas and our room were exceptional. The level of design and finish was quiet remarkable. The weather was terrible - cold and wet, but the hotel was kept at a very good temperature. Definitely 5 star accommodation, and worth the high price. However. . . . .

      We ate dinner in the (main) Morocan restaurant. I had fish and, at 4am the next morning, I got very ill with diarrhoea, definitely from the food we ate in their restauarant, since we'd had nothing to eat since mid-day of the day before I got ill. Suspect it was the fish 'pastille'. The hotel management were, to give them their due, very concerned and responsive - they organised, and paid for, a doctor, who prescribed an antibiotic and Imodium - once again, the hotel management arranged to collect the medicines from a local pharmacy. They also waived the entire meal cost and charged us for the room only - I would have much preferred to not get sick, however. The manager was unable to say what was the origin of the fish, or when it was bought, because we decided to cut short our stay and left before the chef arrived for the day. All in all, a great disappointment, given our high expectations from reading other reviews before we made the reservation. I think that the message is that anywhere in N. Africa, hygiene can be a problem, so go prepared with your own anti-diarrhoea drugs. If you get 'the runs', drink bottled water only (no solids / food) for 24 hours. If it persists after 24 hours, then see a doctor.

      Simply the best

      from

      I will never forget my stay at la maison arabe, the food was so good, friendly personal and the cooking school was the best experince, for the fisrt time i made my own Tagine with moroccan spices. coming back soon

      Amazing , Fantasic , once in a life time trip

      from

      Wow , what a place. The staff could not do enough for us the setting was stunning and the rooms were out of this world. Mohammed at the pool became a wonderfull friend during our short 7 day trip.

      They would cook on demand and with 2 children the demand usually meant chips in one form or another.The food was delicious from cous cous to kebabs all fresh and colourful.

      A truly beautiful hotel with a totally tranquil pool just a short drive away by private car with driver where you would go to relax for the whole day and be waited on like royality.

      Amazing. Marrakech its self is a true mix of colour flavour and spice Fantastic a real eye opener to a different culture and way of life.

      Thank you to the staff and well done we will be back one day

      Beware

      from

      Beware - After not receiving a confirmation I cancelled by reservation. La Maison Arabe still charged my credit card. Moral of the story - use American Express when traveling.

      He was expected to arrive on the 7th of october ( Very high season in Marrakech)but he did not show.

      According to our cancellation policy, this is concedered as " A no Show guest "

      Moral of the story: The Hotel doesn't accept American Express in order to avoid people who don't fulfil their commitments

      Fantastic hotel in the heart of Marrakech

      from

      Situated in the heart of the old town of Marrakech and only five minutes walk from the main square, La Maison Arabe offers a haven of peace and tranquility in an otherwise busy part of the city. The service offered by the staff was EXCEPTIONAL and the rates were extremely reasonable considering the size and standard of the beautifully decorated rooms. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in this part of Morocco.

      Best Hotel In Marrakech

      from

      My wife and I found this to be the best hotel in Marrakech. We have been going to Morocco for 10 years and have stayed at the Mamounia and other Riads in Marrakesh but found La Maison Arabe to be the best. The main part of the hotel is located in the medina, the rooms are excellent, quiet, and filled with antiques and unique carpets. The pool is 10 minutes outside of town in a former lemon orchid and has the feeling of an exotic, upscale, peaceful oasis. The also have a cooking school near the poolhouse where we learned how to make tagines from one of the hotel cooks. The hotel's restaurant is excellent and Fabrizio Ruspoli, the owner of the hotel, is a very gracious, warm host who made us feel very welcome.

      Small charming first class

      from

      This small maison d'hotes with 19 rooms is charming with a staff that is first class. The location is close to the main Marrakech attractions and the rooms are super comfortable. Our maid cleaned our room 3 times a day and added fresh linens and soap.

      The restaurant is one of the best - a little pricey but worth it. The breakfast and afternoon Morrocan tea with sweets is included in the price and delicious.

      The pool is relaxing and refreshing where you can order food and drinks. It is not far from the hotel - a car service runs hourly.

      Every detail has been thought of with this hotel!

      It's our last day - so as we have half empty bags we have to fill them! So it's off to the souks to do some haggling. Lamps first - three coloured lamps for less than £15, bargains I think. Real leather babouches for 200 dirhams, some pots, a teapot and a lovely leather pouff. And a lovely punched metal lamp. Done. Lunch at bourganvillia - tasty pizzas! Back to pack our bags then off to the airport to head home. What a fantastic week, love Morocco, hope we'll be back ...

      ... immediately decide to book another night just as we will struggle to do anything other than relaxing.

      After we sort ourselves out we head downstairs for dinner (we had booked and highly recommend) and it was a fabulous way to start our Moroccan food experience. We had couscous and Tajine (kind of like a stew, but that's not really doing it any justice)


      Well we made it to Morocco lets see what the rest of our time here will bring ...

This was the first time I had ever been complimented on my facial hair, and no doubt ill get more compliments on the next few weeks, as I'm aiming to not shave till La Tomitinia (which is still two weeks away). Therefore, I assume my beard will be ferocious by then. - At dinner, a little girl just grabbed my half drunk Fanta bottle and assumed as her own. I thought nothing of it, till she brought her little brother back and wanted Cam to volunteer his coke to him. Lucky ...
