Outstanding service, very friendly, can't do enough to help. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Room was delightful, atmosphere was intimate and very Moroccan in style. Location was a worry as we arrived but it is delightful inside, an oasis of peace amongst the mayhem of the medina. Amin, the waiter was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Worth every penny.

We just returned from a lovely first time visit to Morocco. We echo Kaye G's description of this gem. Our stay included three nights at Riad Kniza and I can't say enough about the hospitality and accommodations. Everyone deserves a chance to experience a riad when in Marrakech and this one will be memorable for all the best reasons. The... More

After a long & very slow passport control experience, we were greeted by a smiling pleasant driver. Whom took our luggage & we entered a spacious air conditioned mpv. We were privy to a personal tour, as he advised of the various architecture & buildings we passed enroute to the Riad Kniza located within the media (holy city). We were... More

This riad has been owned by the same family for over 200 years and their pride of ownership is apparent everywhere you look. It's impossible to find a single nook or cranny that isn't decorated with impeccable taste and beauty. If you are looking for riad style accommodations in Marrakech look no further. The appearance and cleanliness of this property... More

I have never reviewed anything but Kniza deserves a glowing review. I was blown away by the understated opulence, the hospitality and the tranquility of this place. It was a terrific way to finish my 2 week sojourn in Morocco. I did a one on one cooking class with chef Amina - she was delightful and I am brought back... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in this excellent location. Perfect service and hospitality made our 3 nights here an amazing experience. The building has been renovated to the highest standards while preserving the historic characteristics. We also enjoyed an excellent dinner on the wonderful rooftop.

Marrakech is exciting and in your face and then you return to this oasis of tranquility. Interior is stunning and the staff couldn't do enough to make your stay relaxed and special. I just want to go back ASAP. We also did a half day cooking course at the hotel which was really good fun.
