“A good way to finish our Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

This was the only place we stayed that recognised it was our honeymoon and got out the red carpet for us so we'll always be grateful for that little something extra that the staff of the Riad were happy to do.
The location is perfect, just outside the busy lanes to be quiet and peaceful but close enough for it to be a matter of minutes walking to the sites and sounds.
The staff couldn't do enough for us showing us around, booking tables for us and arranging a massage in the Riad itself.
If and when we go back we'd book into here again without doubt.

We started our 2 week trip in Morooco with 3 nights in the Mur Akush in Marrakech. Tea and cakes on the terrace was a perfect welcome to the hotle. We have 2 children and were given the suite with the sitting room converted for the children to sleep in. It was beautiful and perfect. The rooms are finished to a high standard and have a suitably Moroccan feel to them, fresh flowers and cacti were everywhere, the central courtyard is a haven from the hectic medina and the roof terrace is a perfect suntrap. The staff Hussan, Mohammed and Zora, were terribly helpful and were ready to assist with organsing hire cars, travel ideas for the rest of our time in Morooco etc, including plenty of things which did not give them any income. It would not be suitable for little children but for ours (10 and 8) it was great. Go there!!!!!

No one can deny the hospitality at the riad, from day one, we were given the warmest of welcomes. Helpful - nothing was too much trouble for the riad team, a map, a mint tea,
and a brief guide to the sites. The room was very comfortable with tasteful Moroccan decor. Although hot during the day outside, nights were cooler and on our second night a blanket had been placed in our room just in case. We could not fault the cleanliness inside the riad.
Well situated; both the Djemaa el Fna and the Nouvelle Ville (try Cafe 16 for delectable pastries) were within walking distance. The terrace offered a spectacular view, the Koutoubia Mosque framed by the snow tipped Atlas Mountains. A picture postcard experience. We ate in the riad, the food was superb, especially the couscous. It was wonderful to sample a traditional, home cooked Moroccan dish.
Each morning the staff provided a marvellous array of breakfast dishes, from pain au chocolats to traditional Moroccan pancakes. We were well set up for the day.
Any trips can be organised, we went to Essaouira, a three hour journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. This bustling sea port with its winding white washed streets and Atlantic wind made for a contrasting Moroccan experience.
The riad truly was an oasis of calm, a world away from the hustle and bustle of the souks, but it maintained a quintessentially Moroccan flavour.

We have just returned fro a wonderful stay at Riad Mur Akush in Marrakesh, the service was exceptional, staff so delightful, fun and eager to help us in any way possible - without being overbearing or pusshy. The rooms were clean and exceptional well furnished - we fell asleep very quickly each night and sleept so well in the comfortable beds.

The postion of this riad makes it so easy to pop in and out of the Souks and venture to sites such as the Yuve Saint Laurant garden - good to go to this early as you avoid all the toursit buses then and it such a haven.

Breakfasts are far to much for old people like us to eat ! Views fantastic.

Thank you to Mahammad and Hussan for all their attention during our stay.

We will return

We found out about this hidden gem in a local shop where the owner lives. The website and leaflet looked too good to be true - but the actual experience was even better! We were met with such kindness and the most thorough and thoughtful staff. Mohammed, Hassan and team are amazing. Nothing was too much bother for them and we were made to feel so at home. The Riad is perfectly situated and was perfect for our family and allowed us to walk to the main sites daily. The Suite Amel was stunning and thoughtfully decorated. Both my 5 year old and my teenager loved their stay, especially the magnificent breakfast and a superb dinner on the roof terrace. We will definitely return.

We arrived early but Mohammed greeted us with sweet mint tea servedwith delicious dates and almonds. He was happy to arrange a hamam and massage experience for us both. We were upgraded to the Amiel Suite with a comfortable four poster bed decorated with rose petals. We loved the tadelakt bathroom.We were sitting on the roof terrace when we heard the dusk call to prayer which started at Koutoubia and echoed around all the mosques including Bab Doukala but it was not intrusive after that. We had a generous breakfast on the terrace. Mohammed, Hassan, Zohra and Abdul were always cheerful and happy to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We were impressed with the friendly efficiency of Maria when we made our online booking.

I stayed at The Riad Mur Akush for 4 nights recently (25.03 - 30.03) with 2 girlfriends to celebrate a big birthday . We loved this Riad! Mohammed and Hassan who ran the Riad were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The Riad was beautifully furnished .. very tasteful in Morroccan stye and each of the 5 bedrooms individually decorated. There was lots of additional space too. The roof terrace with it's views of the Atlas mountains was fab in the sunshine ...not so good in the heavy rain that we had on 3 of the 4 days we were there! But there were 2 gorgeous sitting rooms to lounge about in when it was wet. We can also recommenda meal in cooked by the Riad staff..The staff made the courtyard table very pretty with candles and rosepetals and we thought it looked very romantic. I want to persuade my husband to go now!
