“Amazing and calm place in a hectic city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We checked many different reviews on tripadvisor and decided to go for this Riad. We booked the taxi in advance which was a very good choice as the streets in Marrakech are narrow and some places not easy to find. We were greeted with mint tea and sweets and showed to our room. We had breakfast every morning on the roof top overlooking the Medina. Staff was very friendly and helpful and recommended good places. Overall a great hotel I would always get back to.

This is a truly outstanding riad in a fantastic part of Marrakech. Location is ideal. A casual 7-8 minute walk to the main square, easy access to the new town and conveniently situated beside Bab Doukkala mosque. The riad is spacious, bright and boasts the most beautiful courtyard and roof terraces. The rooms were immaculately clean and offered both comfort and authentic Moroccan style. The ideal location and excellent accommodation would have easily been enough to rate this place as excellent, but the reason I've described the Riad Mur Akush as outstanding lies solely with Rashid. From the moment we arrived, Rashid made us feel like it was our home. His warmth and hospitality set the mood for our stay in Morocco. Thanks once again Rashid and sorry for ordering mint tea on the roof terrace every night!! (Best mint tea in town!!!!) Great riad in a great city!!!! Highly recommended!!!

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
