“Always welcoming and friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We have stayed at Riad Slawi 3 times because we are made so welcome each time. Adam goes out of his way to help his guests in every way. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The evening meals are absolutely delicious.

Not sure how anyone could find anything negative to say about this riad. We arrived back home tonight after two weeks in Morocco, with the last three nights at Riad Slawi. I am not a frequent reviewer, but our experience at Riad Slawi was so great that I felt compelled to write a glowing review. This riad is gorgeous and spotless from top to bottom with tons of attention to detail. The neighborhood is ideal...a pleasant walk through the medina and souks to the main square gives you some breathing room from the main tourist areas and an opportunity to experience a less touristy part of the medina. Adam the owner is a great person and he really went out of his way to make us feel welcome and well taken care of during our stay. Keep up the great work! Highly recommend this place!

This was a really great place. Adam is all-around good guy who will make you feel welcome. He arranged our pick up from the train station and he got our train tickets to Rabat for us. He'll walk you through the medina to the square; pay attention so you can find your way back. I'd recommend buying dinner one night: it was delicious, arguably the best meal we had in Morocco and a great introduction to Moroccan cuisine. The riad is beautifully decorated and is kept incredibly clean. I highly recommend this place.

I loved this Riad! I have nothing to complain about! It's quiet and beautiful, and Adam is super friendly and helpful with anything you need to know about local culture, customs, and places you must see. He is also a great conversationalist, so on lazy mornings, he is great to chat with (there's only 4 rooms so you will run into each other a lot and be on a first name basis). We were sadly only here for one night, but we had friends extend their visit because this place was so wonderful. It's true, it is a 3-5 minute walk from the furthest place that taxis can drop you off, but most Riads within the medina and impossible for cars to get to. Adam was waiting for us for taxis drop you off, but we had an unfortunately long wait at customs, and he went back thinking he had the wrong time. A local boy walked us to the Riad, and they will beg and beg for money, but you don't have to give them much. They'll basically follow you waiting for you to get lost and then ask for some money once they point you in the right direction....this is the case all over Marrakech, though, so it's not a downfall to stay here.

Words of warning...taxis in Marrakech are nortoriously overpriced. They refuse to use their meter, but DO NOT pay more than 100-120 DH to/from the airport and the Riad (It's about 10 euro). If the meter does actually run, you'll see the fare should be much less, but NO ONE will take you if you ask to use the meter. Negociate a price ahead of time, stay firm, and take the taxi who will take your fare.

Room Tip: One of the suites hangs over the walkway and woke me up from people walking home late once, but you...

I was so lucky to be staying in this raid . Amazing place , clean , tidy and enjoyable ...
I stayed there for 5night . The owner ADAM is fantastic man , very helpful anytime day or night . We arrived very late in his raid but he was still up waiting for us . After showing us the beautiful room . We could not sleep so were staying in setting room enjoying the decoration .....
The food was the best , do not waste your money in the other restaurant , you can order the food there at fair price and you get on time straight for the kitchen

Well recommended place
Try yourself
Adam all the best , hope to see you soon

The Riad was beautiful and the owner Adam was the perfect host. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the local life but still be close to all the attractions. Adam is more than happy to help you explore the area and offer advice, he arranged a day trip to the mountain villages for us as well as airport transfers and was always interested in hearing about our day. The staff provide lovely home cooked food and the bed was so comfortable and cosy! Staying here made the whole trip so relaxing and we felt like part of the community after only 2 days! We will definitely come back to Marrakech and stay here again.

We stayed one week in Feb 2013 in a first floor room in this lovely riad. We had a fantastic time, it was the most relaxing holiday. Adam the very welcoming manager of the riad had arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and a lovely dinner was ready for us on arrival. The room was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable with an on suite bathroom and a mini-bar. The riad is well decorated throughout with plenty of communal spaces to be shared with the other guests. As it only has 4 bedrooms it doesn't get noisy or crowded, an oasis of peace and quiet. The breakfast was traditional and plentiful, very tasty pancakes, crumpets and similar pastries, all with freshly pressed orange juice, coffee or tea, honey and jams... Adam was around each day and happy to be of assistance. He provided us with a map to find our way home again after venturing out. The location is a bit out of the way, which means it is very quiet at night. The neighbourhood is very pleasant very near the edge of the Souk and the walk from the taxi is only about 5 minutes, We would definitely stay there again. This was second stay in the city and we really enjoyed staying at the Slawi riad. We have already recommended it to friends.
