“Brilliant Marrakech Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Booked the Suite Olive room, however, given heavy rain the room was a bit water damaged, but we were upgraded to their best room without any extra cost. The room was amazing, great comfy bed, very clean room, nice sofa area and brilliant bathroom with amazing shower. Would highly recommend this place for a stay in Marrakech.

It is about 8-10 minutes walk to the main square (we also to Palace Bahia in 15 minutes), so really easy to get anywhere in the Medina. If you stay here, go and try eating at Maison Arabe (about one minute walk from the Riad) and try the hammam at the end of the alley the riad is on (I think it was called Les Bains des Azahara) which was really really good!!

The roof terrace is also an amazing place to sit and relax in the sun, with great views over the mountains and the medina.

Would completely recommend this place without hesitation.

p.s. the breakfast is enormous!

Of the many excellent riads we stayed in Morocco, this one was the best. Had to move rooms after two nights but that just meant we were able to experience two of their beautiful rooms. Great location between the heart of the souks, the square and Gueliz. Best part was the incredible hospitality of Rasheed and Mohammed who were constantly welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended.

Mur Akash is a fantastic riad, with great service in a beautiful building. service delicious breakfasts and dinners in the foyer, or on the roof terrace (with a view over Marrakech), the roof terrace also has basket swings, sun-loungers, and umbrellas. A short walk from the main square Jamaa-al Fna, it's far enough to be quiet in the evenings, but close enough to stroll down to. The staff are excellent, and the rooms are beautifully appointed. I'd fully recommend this place to anyone.

An oasis of calm and tranquillity amidst the madness of the medina beyond its walls. Our host, Rasheed did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace and sitting in the lovely courtyard (birdsong included!). We hope to return

We had a lovely stay - from the welcome on arrival, to the wonderful vegetarian friendly dinner on the roof, to the helpful but not pushy staff. The rooms were stunning and very well furnished.

There are only two, small, quibbles. The first is that the wifi doesn't reach all the rooms (even though the website says it does). The second is a common problem in riads and similar refurbished old houses, the plumbing is a bit smelly ... if we didn't keep all the plugs in the basins and shower the whole bathroom started to smell of sewage.

Room Tip: If you want wifi check that the room you're booking has wifi, then check it again when you arriv...

Charming rashid and the gang will make you welcome in this beautiful hidden riad in the medina. Great room and location but you will be woken up early if you're on the ground floor as guests have breakfast in the courtyard.
