Adam, the owner is the best customer service person I have EVER encountered. I have never had this level of service no matter how much I have paid for a room (even $400+ a night rooms). This is a budget room so you would not expect much at all but I was given everything. My wifes throat was sore so he went and got us cough drops. She is a picky eater so he would go out and get customized food for us and bring it back as well as snacks I would also want. We were going to the train station to buy tickets to go to Casablanca - he went and got the tickets for us. He hand drew maps to direct us to places we wanted to see. He would walk us to meet tours we had booked to make sure they came and to call in case they were not there on time The list goes on and on. For the service, he gave us I had to give him a superb tip as well as wish. Adam is from Canada so he speaks perfect English if that is your native language. Thr ROOM - is very nice The bathroom has a ceiling with stars of colored glass that are beautiful. The bathroom is very spacious with lots of counter storage as well as shower storage. There is an in room fridge. There is a in room sofa for relaxing on or extra storage. There is a cove by one side of the bed for storing small things you ant close by. And there is a good amount of room on both sides of the bed as well. And for tech people there are a lot of electrical outlets beside the beds as well (5 in our room). The WiFi is free and I had no problem accessing it. FYI - there is no TV but I dont think you need it in Morocco. Breakfast has a wide variety of breads and they all taste good. If you need anything Adam will gladly help you get it, help you find it, or arrange it. And because he is French he speaks French and English, as well as some other languages. I could not recommend any other for people to stay at im Marrakech. Sure this is not a 5 star riad, but the service and total quality it 5 for sure!!!!!

Adam and his team at Riad Slawi are truly one of a kind. We chose this riad over others due to the rave reviews for the staff - and we were not disappointed. The riad is located in what at first seems like a labyrinth, but we learned our way around quickly and came to love to walking by the familiar routines of the locals. Staying in the medina, but just outside the tourist chaos was a wise decision on our part. I'm a cautious traveler, and though the neighborhood may seem daunting at first with it's twisting alleys, the area is actually very safe, and highly residential. Adam is there to help you with any accommodations and inquiries - he is so kind, so helpful, and very professional. Our first trip to Morocco owes much of its success to Riad Slawi - I couldn't imagine staying in Marrakech at any other riad.

I would like to start off by offering our sincere thanks and heartfelt gratitude to the Riad owner Adam for making our stay extra special. Thanks for treating us to a nice cup of mint tea on our arrival and for making us feel at home straightaway - you really do know how to make a good first impression! And thanks for offering us some really useful information and tips about getting around Marrakech which proved absolutely invaluable. Your and your team's attentiveness and thoughtfulness throughout our stay was beyond exceptional and highly commended. So what about the Riad itself? Well the whole place was simply immaculate: room was spotless, traditional Moroccan decorations, good shower, comfy bed, cosy surroundings, excellent location in the heart of the medina, exceptionally clean throughout...the list goes on...The thing we particularly liked about here is you really do get to stay in the most traditional Moroccan way. If I really have to pick out a negative then maybe the breakfast lacked a little bit of variety but we were offered something different every day and it was sufficient. All in all, for the price it was quite simply one of the best places we've stayed in in a very long time and Adam and the team truly deserves all the credit and praises they get - well done and keep up the exceptionally good work! So if you wish to experience the very best of genuine traditional Moroccan hospitality then look no further than Riad Slawi, you will not be disappointed. 6/5!

Adam and his team redefine the meaning of hospitality - we had a superb visit and were looked after with great care. This beautifully, lovingly restored Riad is in a charming, friendly neighbourhood in the magical Médina - close to everything. A perfect first visit to Marrakech- thanks to Adam and his hospitality.

We were nervous about opting for a Riad but equally did not fancy staying away from the hubbub of the City Centre and using a hotel that would be indistinguishable from many others in the Med/Canary Islands. The TA reviews for Slawi were excellent so we decided to go for it. We are so glad we did. Adam the owner as has been posted so frequently is the most genial of hosts and a massive asset if you want help with anything from airport transfers (do get him to arrange this as otherwise you will never find the Riad!) best way to get to the Souks, where to pick up a taxi if you want to venture further afield, what taxi fare to haggle for for key Marrakesh attractions, adjusting your breakfast time to accommodate trips etc etc. He kindly walked us to one of the restaurants as well. The Riad is spotlessly clean, beds comfortable, hot water available all the time we needed it, a European standard toilet, plenty of towels and do pre book a dinner for one of your nights. We had an excellent 3 course dinner very reasonably priced and beware the starter is big so pace yourself! Use the Slawi's website to get in touch with Adam by email so he can confirm the airport transfer before you go - we were met by a taxi driver he had organised and then escorted to the door of the Riad where Adam met us to introduce himself and answer any queries. The Riad is in a quiet part of town so no noise interruptions whilst we were there apart from the early morning call to prayer from the local mosque but you cannot avoid this staying near the city centre. And the Souks are only minutes away - we walked to Jemaa el-Fnaa the main square via the Souks and from there navigated to most of the main tourist sites which are all walking distance. All in all thoroughly recommended!

Had a lovely stay in this wonderful Riad. We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our time. Adam is a wonderful host! He really went the extra mile to ensure we were having a good time, including walking us to the riad on a few occassions and organising transport to various locations. Also we opted to eat dinner at the Riad on our last night and it was absolutely delicious!!! would highly recommend this, so fresh and tasty. The breakfast in Riad Slawi is delish always serving yummy warm breads. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend staying here!

Our stay was incredible. We are two young women who were nervous to travel alone in Morocco at first but Adam was so welcoming and helpful and unbelievably kind. He walked us to a safe and reliable ATM the first day so we could pay him for the room and always made sure we had everything we needed/checked in on us at night to make sure we were home safe and sound. He booked us a taxi in the morning for our very early flight and even called me once our flight landed in France to make sure we got home okay. The Riad itself is beautiful and calm. While the location is confusing at first, we loved how it was a hidden gem in winding streets and we never felt unsafe during our walks home at night. It is also within walking distance of all the major sites. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The dinner was TO DIE FOR. I highly recommend eating there one night. The woman who makes the food is an incredible cook and it was the best couscous/tagine I have ever had, and by far one of the best meals we had during our week stay in Morocco. We could not be more thankful for the hospitality and experience we had at Riad Slawi and will definitely be returning in the future!

We had an excellent stay at this magnificent Riad in the old medina of Marrakech. Once you have made your way through the narrow and turbulent streets of the medina and enterred the Riad Slawi, you will find yourself suddenly in pardise. Not only is the Riad very beautiful but also the team is a gem. They will take care of everything to make your Marakech experience very unique and memorable. The food is excellent, fresh and tasty, the rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Adam, the manager is very caring and kind and makes you feel you are at home and almost part of the family. Don't bother yourself looking at alternatives. This is the place to be in Marrakech if you are looking for a unique and affordable experience. My wife and I will definitely come back. Thanks Adam and team!

Adam is a warm and welcoming host with lots of helpful advice. The riad is beautiful , peaceful and tranquil, away from the hustle and bustle. We had a lovely room for our family of four with delicious Moroccan pancakes for breakfast - a highlight for the boys. A memorable stay for our first experience of Marrakech.

Staying with Adam at Riad Slawi was a dream. The room was beautiful and the quality was exquisite. The furnishings are beautiful throughout, making it a peaceful haven away from the busy streets of Marrakesh. Adam was easily the best host we have ever encountered-friendly and more than happy to organise things for us, such as our transport. We also had dinner in the riad one night, which we both agreed was the best food we are in Marrakesh. Thank you Adam and staff for creating such a beautiful riad and for making us feel so looked after.
