“A warm welcome in this stylish riad”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This pictures do not do this riad justice, they cannot capture the full scope of the carefully crafted spaces, the cool peace and calm of the riad in the heart of the city, and the warm welcome of the staff who tended to us. The rooms are beautifully finished, with thoughtful additions to make the stay pleasurable. All the spaces are uniquely decorated with rich Moroccan furnishings and colours, smells and shadows that make the riad and the city so memorable. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to eat breakfast, or to while away a hotter hour before venturing out into the souks and the main squares.
Many places were easily walkable, the main square, getting lost in the souks, and stylish hammams and restaurants where all close at hand.
I would love to stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Me and my girlfriend have just left this riad which we spent a week in. We booked travel from the airport which we were glad after spending a hot hour at passport control!! We were shattered an arrived at the riad at about 9:30pm we were greeted cheerfully by rashid and walked through to paradise it was so peaceful after the stress of the airport. We booked a meal and although it was late they didn't mind the cook laila always had a smile the whole week and cooked us a wonderful 3 course meal. We had the olive suite but was shown another room incase we wanted to switch but the olive suite is like an Aladins cave and we stuck with it. Breakfasts were filling pancakes and cakes, yoghurt, oj, tea, coffee, bread, cheese all in one breakfast. The location is good for the souks and the square or a walk to the majjorelle gardens all around 10 minutes walk. Rashid and Muhammad were perfect hosts both speaking good English and gave good tips on places to see and eat. Also they would give u bottles of water, fresh orange juice or mint tea whenever u wanted which was very helpful in the evenings. I would recommend this place to anyone. Muhammad, rashid and laila were a delight and the room was a spectacle in itself. We wouldn't hesitate at choosing this riad of we come back.

We decided on this Riad after extensive research (there are hundreds of Riad's to chose from!), we were definitely not disappointed!.

Firstly if you do book this Riad I would recommend you arrange for them to pick you up from the airport (this cost us 15 euros). We were collected by Mohammed who spoke perfect English and was very friendly. On arrival (after about a 15 min drive from the airport) who were welcomed by Rashid with fresh mint tea and a selection of Moroccan sweets. He provided a map and recommended a number of sights to visit and let us know how to get there (most things are walking distance in the old town).

We chose to stay in the Grand Suite Amel, and it was a great decision! The room is huge with separate living room and bedroom. The bedroom has a huge four poster bed and the living room has a corner sofa and working fire place. The room felt very homely and is decorated very traditionally. The bathroom is also huge!

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Riad Mur Akush. We chose it from pictures and reviews on Trip Advisor and were very pleased with our choice. Muhammed and Rachid were our hosts and Zorah our maid and cook. They truly worked hard to accommodate all our needs from picking us up from a late flight, serving a delicious meal in the atrium by the waterfall, setting up a tour, serving and cooking breakfasts, and providing directions and advice. We loved our Moroccan style room and tiled bathroom with locally made bath soaps and shampoos. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the roof of the Riad while relaxing in the morning sunlight amid the many flowers and listening to the sounds of the city. The breakfasts were very generous with a selection of breads, jams, orange juice, tea , coffee, yogurt and sometimes eggs. I took a cooking class from Zorah, accompanying her to the market to choose meat, vegetables and spices and helping to prepare the lamb tangine (a flovorful Moraccan stew). Mohammed and Rachid speak English so we were able to converse easily with them. The Riad is only a few blocks from the Sikh area (the bazaars). We walked all over town, day and evening, and felt perfectly safe; just watch out for the cars and motorbikes! If we are ever fortunate enough to go back to Marrakesh, we will definitely stay at Riad Mur Akush again!

We had 4 nights there and are extremely satisfied. Clean and spacious rooms, very friendly, helpful and discrete staff, quiet surroundings, only 10min walk from the Square, 5 from the top of the main Souk, 5-10 from walls to get to the Nouvelle-Ville. Different pastrie or pancake every morning, very generous on the food portion. Possibility to have a lovely relaxed dinner on the roof terrace. We wish we had another night there at the end of our Morocco trip. We were in Suite Yassine room.

We spent one week in Riad Mur Akush to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been better. Just as other people have said, it really is an oasis of calm to retreat to after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Maria and her staff were all very friendly and helpful. Halfway through the week we were upgraded to a four poster suite due to a cancellation (at no extra cost). Whilst the double room we had at first was lovely (room Salam), the suite was even better (Suite Hammam). The toiletries are gorgeous and were replenished each day. Breakfast could be taken at any time at all, either in your room, in the courtyard or on the sun terrace which consisted of freshly squeezed orange juice, pastries, pancakes or omelette, or sometimes hard boiled eggs, and fresh bread and homemade jams, coffee and tea. All delicious. We ate in the riad on the evening of our anniversary (on the sun terrace) and had a lovely mixed salad to start - the aubergine salad was delicious - followed by lamb tagine, and fresh melon and a chocolate and cardamom dessert to finish. Would definitely recommend. All in all a fantastic riad in a good location about 10 minutes walk from the square.

Room Tip: Think all the rooms are good. Ours was on the first floor.

Stayed here with my girlfriend as an xmas present for her.
The room was amazing and the service was even better, Could not find any fault in our experience at Riad Mur Arkush. Would advise on getting the taxi service to the Riad as it would be hard to find. Location is perfectly placed between old & new marrakech.

Staff were incredible, really friendly and will help you with absolutely anything.
Would stay here again fantastic bombastic.
