I have never stayed in a riad before, so was surprised and delighted when we got there. It felt as if we were transported back to an exotic past. My husband and I and two friends stayed at this riad for 4 nights. Our friends organised the booking, and we were picked up at the airport by the riad manager. It was all very efficient. We also booked a meal at the riad on the night of our arrival, which was a very good Morracan food, and a wise move on the first night. Our room was delightful, traditionally and very tastefully designed. We were very comfortable. Unfortunately our friends chose a ground floor room, which seemed damp. The management were very sympathic, and were able to move them. Unfortunately they had to move twice as the riad was fully booked, but ended up with a gorgeous suite in the end.
The breakfasts were very good (traditional Morrocan breads, and fresh orange juice, scrummy!) and was served on the roof terrace, which had spectacular views across to the Atlas mountains. One could'nt ask for a better situation. All the staff were helpful and very pleasant. We also met one of the owners who related the history of the riad, very interesting. He plans a display charting the riad's history in the lounge area.
Riad Mur Akush, is very conveniently situated, and is short walk to the medina and the souks. The riad also organised a tour guide for us, who took us on an excellent walking tour. This is well worth doing if you have never been to Marrakech before. In total this is one of the best holiday stays I have experienced, and would certainly return to Riad Mur Akush.
