Riad Mur Akush
A pleasant riad with friendly staff. We pre-booked an evening meal as arrival time was late and the tagine they cooked was excellent. We had pre-booked a taxi with them which picked us up from the airport. Pre-booking a taxi is always worth doing in Marrakesh, as it saves lots of hassle at the airport and most of the best riads are difficult to find. There are also lots of touts, who will direct you, with all sincerity to another establishment. The Raid Mur Akush is about a 20 minute walk to the main square in Marrakesh and good for the souks.
The breakfast is good and even on January 6th we were having the breakfast on the roof terrace. There is only one drawback the nearby mosque has some brilliant amplification and the four calls to prayer boom out across the area. The 4 am had me paying for it to stop. To be fair this is only a small problem. The calls must have been magical before electronic amplification but there now seems to be a battle as to which mosque has the best annoy system. The hotel do provide ear plugs. This is a pleasant place to stay the rooms are clean and good.
