I booked this Riad in February and ever since have been in contact with Maria the owner ever since regarding taxis, local custom and meals at the Riad. On arrival (ask for a private transfer, 15 pounds is nothing for the safety and security of arriving at night safely and not being harrassed by possibly dodgy taxis) we were treated... More

We spent 2 nights here before heading out on our tour of Morocco. Everything was perfect and the location is amazing since it is a short walking distance to the square. Maria was amazingly efficent with her information on details of exploring Morocco. I would not hesitate to recommend Riad Mur Akush, for it's authentic Moroccan flair. Great Service.

After a hectic week climbing the Atlas Mountains and camel riding in the Sahara, arriving at Riad Mur Akush was the perfect, relaxing break we needed.

This review will be an odd one as due to a mix up in another part of morocco we missed our transfer back to Marrakech and just ended up staying nearer the airport.

Very pleasant stay. Had a very spacious and well-appointed room. The rooftop is lovely and provides for nice views of Marrakesh. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Djemaa el-Fnaa and the souks, but we were actually very happy we weren't located amid all those crowds. The call to prayer did wake us up, but it was not overly...

It was like being at home. Complete comfort with the people, tea and coffee whenever we wanted (for free!), and we even got to watch the world cup on one of the staff member's tablet! Oh, and it was a beautiful, quiet place (except when the call to prayer sounded from the nearby mosque). And cheap. I'm recommending it to... More

This Riad is a little sanctuary in Marrakech that surpassed my expectations. Myself and two friends stayed in the Amel suite on the top floor. Very comfortable, great taste in decoration and a spacious bathroom. The Riad itself is beautiful and a great deal of thought and care has gone in to every mirror, painting and rug!
