“Perfect stay amazing experience”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

The most amazing Riad, friendly staff that can't do enough, food and hospitality is perfect, made my mum's 60th one to remember. I would most definitely recommend Riad murakush.

Have just returned from Riad Mur Akush having spent a wonderful four nights stay. It was our first visit to Marrakech and a wonderful experience starting with a welcome of Mint tea and pastries prepared by Rachid and Zohra. Mohammed, Rachid, Zohra and Yusuf made us feel at home and were on hand for all our many questions about life in this amazing city. The whole riad is wonderfully decorated and appointed andeach room is themed. From the roof top balcony to the open courtyard for dining, it is an oasis within the bustling city of Marrakech. We decided to eat in on two evenings and the food was freshly prepared to our needs and served with enthusiasm; wine was available. We went on a day trip to the Atlas Mountains with Mohammed as our guide and were able to see life outside of the city. Our friends were also of a like mind about the whole experience.

Room Tip: The Grand Suite Amel is the one if your budget stretches that far. But all six rooms are individuall...

My partner and I have just returned from 4 nights at Riad Mur Akush and cannot recommend it highly enough. We arrived mid-evening to find the courtyard beautifully lit with candles and the sound of the fountain running. Rachid, Yosef and Mohammed were incredibly helpful and answered all our questions knowledgeably.

We stayed in the Hamman room which is located on the first floor. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean.

I recommend having breakfast on the roof terrace if the weather is good, it has a wonderful view over the city and is very relaxing. Breakfast was served whenever we wanted it and consisted of pastries, breads, fruit, yogurt, tea and coffee ( one day we also got an omelette), breakfast changes daily too.

The riad is located very close to the Bab Dokala Mosque and the first call to prayer is around 4am. This woke us up every morning. I would advise taking ear plugs to avoid being woken up.

We found the riad a wonderful refuge from the madness of the city. Despite being so central it is very peaceful and relaxing.

The main square is only 10 minutes walk, the souks are even nearer.

All in all a fantastic riad, wonderful staff and a relaxing haven.

Simon from Birmingham (uk).
I recently stayed here with my girlfriend for our first holiday in morocco. I can honestly say I've never been more well looked after anywhere else I've travelled to before. The Riad is so peaceful inside your torn to decide wether to get back early on an evening after a meal to just enjoy the beautiful gardens within the available communial areas. The breakfast was always of a good standard and we were never left wanting for any more. All of the staff are so welcoming and friendly you really do feel like your leaving home on your last day. We also had great advise on the best places to visit and amazing day expeditions to take. It's located perfectly to capture all of the different sides to Marrakech. Locally are great sites to see in the old town, lovely restaurants to eat at and your still close to the westernised new town if you like shopping etc. I really would recommend here to anyone, a place we enjoyed so much and a place we will definitely return to again.

We simply loved the place although it was quite a stretch for our budget – it turned up in the tripadvisor selection of 1-50 US$ but it is far more expensive. Fortunately we got a discount that made it possible for us to stay there. All rooms are beautifully decorated and big. The staff is very, very friendly. The breakfast which you can take on the rooftop terrace is excellent and although within the Medina it is a very quiet place to stay. We highly recommend staying there! In the end we stayed for 5 nights!

Room Tip: We would go for rooms on the upper floor – the suite d´olive on the ground floor is very nice but a...
