The staff at Riad Mur Akush were very helpful and friendly. Maria helped before we arrived by answering my many emails and giving useful tips. I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who complained about 'greed and rudeness'. Maria offered us the Riad-organised trips but always told us about the cheaper alternatives, for example local buses. We were also able to check out late (at about 6pm) at no extra cost.
We stayed in the Salem room which was bigger than it looks in the photo and a great place to relax after a day's sightseeing.
A daytrip to the mountains with Mohammed is unmissable, he is very funny and offered interesting insights in to Marrakech life. The Riad staff were very helpful in giving directions and making reservations for us. Breakfast on the roof terrace was the best meal of the day. I would recommend taking earplugs though, the call to prayer and a cockerel woke me up in the early hours every day.
Our visit to Marrakech coincided with the bombings so we were a bit shaken by those events. However, it wouldn't put me off visiting Marrakech again which generally felt like a safe place. I would definitely recommend this Riad and will stay here again on my next trip.
