Was the lucky one to get a surprise weekend in Marrakech beginning of February 2013 and we stayed 2 nights at the charming Riad Mur Akush. Ahh... what a wonderful place, one feels at home straight away. A very friendly welcome, well organized check-in and absolutely helpful in every way.
We had our room at the top floor, a big bedroom with a lovely 4 poster bed (and very important…a very comfortable mattress!) and a lounge area with a fire place. The bathroom is enormous (when compared to other hotels) with a fabulous big shower. Everything tastefully decorated with local traditional furniture and interesting big mirrors. Every room is different: some smaller some bigger. Very creative indeed. At night it is quiet and you sleep like a baby, though if you are a light sleeper be aware that the Riad is very close to a mosque and the dawn call to prayer may disturb you.
We had dinner on the evening of our arrival at the Riad which was perfectly fine but just a bit too much for 2!! If you want some wine with dinner or for an aperitif, you better request it in advance since the Riad, like many in the Medina, is not licenced (very kindly they organized it for us within short without any problems). Since it was sunny and already quite warm, we had our breakfast on the roof terrace - you can also have it in the patio or in the room if you wish - with a splendid view over the city and the mountains.
The Riad is well placed in the old town, short walking distance to the souks and the main square.
Really I would have liked to keep this place secret but I need to thank everyone at the Riad again for our super perfect stay. Please don’t change - we will come again!!
PS: we recommend a visit to the ‘Jardin Majorelle’ – absolutely beautiful garden with the most amazing colours. The restaurant there is also good!
