We stayed several nights at Riad le Clos des Arts based on TripAdvisor reviews, and could not have been happier with the choice. The riad is beautiful -- quiet, peaceful, and very tastefully decorated -- and the staff is friendly and attentive. Giorgina arranged a car to meet us at the airport when we arrived in Marrakech, then met us at the nearest drop-off point to walk with us to the riad (because cars cannot enter much of the medina, it is a few minutes walk to the riad from the nearest vehicle-accessible point). While a porter went ahead with our luggage, Giorgina pointed out landmarks so that we could easily find our way back to the riad on our own. On arrival, she spent 20 minutes or so going over the map of Marrakesh, pointing out recommendations for restaurants, sites and walking routes.
We stayed at the riad twice (at the beginning and again at the end of our trip to Morocco), so we stayed in two different rooms, Citrine and Ambre. Both were perfectly large enough for a couple, and were beautifully decorated. All of our meals (breakfasts on the roof, and dinner one night at the riad) were excellent.
As great as the house was, it was Giorgina and Massimo that really made the stay memorable. We enjoyed talking with them about their travels and their life in Morocco -- both have lived and worked in various places throughout Africa. We could not have asked for better hosts.
