La Maison Arabe is an absolute dream! If you’re looking for a Moroccan hotel with a luxury boutique experience in a prime location of Marrakech -- you found it with La Maison Arabe. My husband and I spent four incredible nights here, and would return in a heartbeat.

La Maison Arabe Hotel Review
La Maison Arabe is a riad hotel (traditional Moroccan home with an outdoor courtyard). It offers old-school charm and top notch service in the most stunning setting. There are numerous common rooms worth exploring. Walk around and you will discover flowery courtyards, sexy salons, and lavish little nooks to curl up with a book. There is even a brightly colored rooftop patio that resembles the famous Majorelle Garden.
La Maison Arabe is in an excellent location -- right in the heart of the medina. You can walk to the central Jemaa el Fna square and go shopping in the souks. If it wasn't walking distance, anywhere we wanted to go like Majorelle Garden was a cheap and quick cab ride away. You can find it at Derb Assehbi, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco.
There are 26 individually decorated guest rooms. You’ll find Moroccan style with lavish furnishings, hand-carved doors, and intricate tile work. Our suite had a spacious balcony that overlooked the swimming pool. We enjoyed having a glass of wine or tea on our balcony while live music played each night below us.
Eating and Drinking at La Maison Arabe
Afternoon Moroccan Tea
Every afternoon guests can enjoy Moroccan tea and pastries in the stunning courtyard or in your room. During this time, a musician plays Moroccan music over the trickling noise of the fountain. It is a lovely way to relax on vacation!
La Maison Arabe offers two restaurants. Les Trois Saveurs has an indoor and outdoor seating. The poolside tables are magical and Moroccan lanterns light up the restaurant. You can order French, Moroccan, or Asian cuisine. The other restaurant exclusively serves Moroccan cuisine, and both restaurants have live music and excellent food! In fact, La Maison is widely recognized for its wonderful meals. Sir Winston Churchill was actually a regular at La Maison!
Complimentary Breakfast Buffet
Breakfast is included for guests and it is served in the poolside restaurant. There is a large breakfast spread with Moroccan and Western options, as well as made-to-order omelets and Moroccan pancakes. It was neat watching the woman make my Moroccan pancakes each morning, and they tasted phenomenal.
There is a dimly-lit piano bar at the riad which was a great place to cozy up with a cocktail before dinner. There always seemed to be live music throughout this hotel!
