After lollygagging around my hotel for a couple hours, Karem picked me up to take me to the Jemaa el Fna. Now I am still contemplating how to exactly describe the Jemaa el Fna. First and foremost it is a huge, huge square in the middle of the Marrakech medina surrounded by the souk, restaurants and the Koutoubia Minaret (more about that later). It …
October 30 to November 2, 2011: Marrakech, Morocco
We departed from Argentina knowing that we were definitely entering a new phase of our trip: leaving the Americas; going to a country where we didn't speak the language; going to a non-Christian country, etcetera. Our flight to Morocco was a marathon slog: from the extreme southern part of …
... large brown eyes. As kids, some of us were embarrassed for her when we stumbled across bare breasted tribal women hidden deep inside the glossy pages of National Geographic. Others slightly resented her with millions of starving children. We sat alone at the dinner table, chastised, long after the plates had cleared, chewing on fatty chunks of meat floating in cold irish stew. We have been in Africa for two ...
... Under the expansive food tent, the Saturday crowd devours everything from barbecued springbok paninis to kingclip sushi rolls. Craft brewers pull pints of cold lager and local vintners pour glasses Sauvignon blanc. The solo musician loops djembe beats below the primal drone of the dijereedoo. The crowd bounces to the rhythm. We venture south to the Cape of Good Hope located at the most south westerly point of Africa. Here the basal shale mountains ...
... yogurts and boys played and screamed up and down the playground. Gill and Saba found oranges growing in a tree in the courtyard and before you knew it all of the kids were queuing impatiently for one. They were delicious and calmed them all down briefly before getting excitable again for ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’.
Dinner and more Mint Tea and the Broiché Café tonight before packing our rucksacks for the waterfalls trip ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Maison Arabe Marrakech
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
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
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.
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!)
Simply the best
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
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 - 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
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
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
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.
