Excellent hotel with a really cool history and phenomenal staff. We booked a suite, which was nice and spacious and the decor was wonderful. The only ding is that both of our rugs would definitely benefit from a deep cleaning (not just vacuuming). Other than that, this place was a lovely oasis in the medina and the breakfast was unbelievably good. We'd definitely stay again.

Hotel's Favourite
Our second stay, and this was just a great as the first. We love it and cannot fault it. A great new addition are the rooms in the Douiria with a gym and new rooftop terrace. The swimming pool provides a welcome cool down in the afternoon and the evening is finished by a cocktail in the Jazz Bar. Very well located for the Souks and main square Jemaa el-Fnaa, which are short stroll away. This is the only place to stay in Marrakech.

This is an amazing place in central Marrakech. Nothing was too much trouble. Room and restaurant were superb. One to stay at if you are in Marrakech! Haman was very good and the cooking class was one we would repeat again!

My stay here was a dream. There’s a spirit of generosity and hospitality here I’ve not encountered anywhere else. The riad was built in the 1930’s and I couldn’t help but be swept away by the hotel’s history - oh, the things and people it has seen! I made sure to venture out to eat, hit the top spots recommended by Trip Advisor, but at the end of the day, the best food I had was right here in the hotel. I had a blissful Hammam/massage experience here, ten out of ten, and had a blast in the cooking class they offered. I’m usually an Airbnber, but this is one experience I’m so glad I went for. Thank you, La Maison Arabe for bringing such care and kindness to the art of hospitality.

Beautiful riad in the heart of Marrakesh. Staff all very welcoming and friendly, and helped us everyday with booking/confirming tours, guides and taxis. The location was perfect for us as it could be accessed by car but was also only an 10 min walk from the main square. Our room was in a beautiful internal courtyard with stained glass windows. There was also a lovely spa and amazing cookery class offered by the hotel. Highly recommended for first time travellers to Marrakesh who want a lovely base from which to relax and explore!

A truly authentic Moroccan hotel with beautiful rooms, courtyard tea areas, bar and restaurant. I didn't get to the hammam but wish I had - the space is magnificent and felt very private and intimate. The pool area is picturesque although loungers are on a different level. A bonus is this hotel is within walking distance of one of the main entrances into the medina (souk/market area) which was useful.
