After reading the reviews on tripadvisor and seeing the pictures on the website I was very excited about our stay at the Mur Akush. I want to say that it was amazing, I want to say that I loved it; but I can't. There wasn't one big thing wrong with it, but I found it rather underwhelming and there were lots of little 'niggly' things that let it down.
Our room (Salaam) was lovely, but needs a bit of TLC. The blanket had huge catches in it, the safe wasn't actually attached to anything, making it unusable and it felt really basic and a little 'grubby' The bed was very comfy though and the air con was impressive.
The noise travels terribly from the courtyard, which seemed to be where most people chose to eat breakfast, meaning that we could hear every conversation from our room on the first floor.
Breakfast itself was a great mix of meat, cheese, fresh bread, pastries, yoghurt and coffee and we alternated between having it in our room and up on the roof terrace. But the crockery was no longer at it's best, there were chips and cracks on most pieces and it needs replacing.
The roof terrace was lovely, but again the cushions were all stained and grubby.
I think two years ago, the Riad Mur Akush would have been very impressive indeed, but I don't think it has had much love recently and it is starting to show. Some TLC and attention to detail would make a huge improvement.
