With amazing deals on flights from Madrid to Marrakech this June, my girlfriend and I booked a 3 day holiday to Morocco, without much knowledge of the area or language. I booked 3 nights with the Riad Slawi, based on other amazing reviews here and on booking.com, and was very pleased with my choice.
Even before our arrival, Adam (our host at the Riad Slawi) was more than happy to arrange for transport from the airport, and arrange for extra-special roses in the room for when my girlfriend and I arrived. Once we got there, we were met by a baggage helper who guided us through the alleys to the Riad. Greeted with fresh cookies and mint tea, we were in awe of the decor and design of the hotel, and shown to our room. The Riad is beautiful, very clean and quiet, and Adam and his father make for wonderful hosts. While it seems a bit difficult to find without an assistant at first, it is easy to figure out after walking to town once or twice, and is in actuality pretty close to the main areas Jemma el Fna, Kotoubia minaret, etc.
Normally, a walk like this would seem a bit daunting (especially since we don't speak French or Arabic), but with the Riad Slawi, there were not problems. Adam was more than happy to take us to town when we arrived, show us the ways around the souks, suggest good places for food, suggest prices for what we should expect to pay, and so on. Best of all, he met us at the taxi drop-off point in the evening to make sure we didn't get lost on the way back.
Tasty breakfast in the morning, wonderful service, and because of the Riad, we met another couple from Belgium staying there whom we went into Marrakech with the next day. We had a blast, and if it weren't for a cool place like this Riad (with its service and charm attracting other good-natured people), we wouldn't have met our new Flemish friends and had the fun we did in Morocco. An amazing time, and very thankful to Adam and is father at this Riad.
