Entering this beautiful riad is like entering another place and time. It takes one immediately away from the hustle and bustle of the travelling. The service is fabulous and everyone there is able to respond to the traveller to make the journey the 'best'. The staff coordinated with travel plans, sight seeing needs, and every other request. The rooms were... More

Easily the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, just perfect in every way. Fantastic staff, beautiful & serene inside decor. Multiple lovely options for eating (food also incredible). The rooms are boutique and very unique, it's definitely an experience you won't forget.

This Riad is a quiet oasis from the noisiness and bustle of Marrakech. When we walk in you instantly feel sense of calm from the tranquil vibe inside the hotel. We were greeted by the manager, Kamal and he immediately made us feel welcome. The rooms are big with a nice separate seating area. The service was wonderful. A minor... More

We booked to stay here for our honeymoon and it was truly an unforgettable experience. We've travelled the world and never stayed anywhere as magical as Riad Kniza. I cannot recommend booking to stay here enough: stunning rooms, beautiful decor and incredible customer service. It is a little tricky to find but all good treasure chests are! In fact, being...

Beautiful rooms, memorable service, ideal location. Would definitely stay here again! Staff was incredibly helpful in arranging activities, making recommendations and reservations, and addressing various requests. Rooms are some of the finest I've seen, and welcome tea, fruit, and rose petals are delightful.

My partner and I stayed at the wonderful hotel for 2 nights. I have stayed at many 5 star hotels around the world and to be honest, this has been my most memorable to date. Kamal and his staff were the most accommodating, hospitable people imaginable. The location is perfect and when you need to escape from the medina, simply... More

My wife and I have recently returned from our fifth trip to Marrakech. All the riads that we've stayed in have been very good. Riad Kniza has probably been one of the best. It's very comfortable and the service was excellent. A couple of suggestions for any first time visitors to Marrakech. First, hire a guide for half a day... More

My wife and I stayed at Riad Kniza for 5 days and had an absolutely wonderful time. The Riad has been beautifully and tastefully restored to the highest standards and all the rooms (we stayed in 3), are gorgeous. The pool is perfect and very pretty, the roof terrace great, with two separate areas with loads of space to spread... More

My husband and I are so glad we decided to stay at Riad Kniza during our time in Marrakech. The riad itself is stunning and spotless, with mosaic tile work, carved plaster, a beautiful pool, and a terrace with great views of the medina. However, the people who work at Riad Kniza are the best part. From the moment we... More

Book this Riad! Arriving in hot August we received a lovely warm welcome. The rooms are STUNNING, as is the whole Riad- beautiful and palatial. There are four courtyards with sitting rooms so the Riad feels quiet and private. A gorgeous pool just big enough for a bit of a swim around and cool off, stunning roof. Venturing out into... More
