This Riad is absolutely beautiful and the staff are very kind and helpful. The room was huge and spotlessly clean and we were allowed to be served meals wherever we liked within the riad which was a lovely touch. The reception staff were incredibly helpful and we were provided with loads of information when we arrived. However Something I feel... More

Great! The reception staff were fantastic to deal with - smiling all the time, and quick to respond to any request or question. The rooms are really big and clean, the hotel is perfectly located. Thank you all for your excellent service.

I visited marrakech this august with my husband and 2 kids (aged 4 and 1.5 years old). The riad is very sweet, small and peaceful. We enjoyed the authenticity of it all. However I wouldn't advise it for kids. It's not suitable for them and neither does the hotel cater for them. Due to it being very quiet and peaceful,... More

I stayed at the Riad Kniza last month. It was nothing short of amazing. The staff was truly top notch -- their service seems to be an authentic extension of who they are. The room and facilities were immaculate with many special touches added. I was also traveling solo, so I read the reviews thoroughly before deciding on a place.... More

I can recommend Riad Kniza to anyone traveling in Marrakech! The grounds and rooms are immaculate with an old world charm. The daily breakfasts were delicious and served whenever and wherever (in your room, on the rooftop, etc,) we wanted. The staff and the proprietor were friendly and accommodating. They let us keep our room until 9:30pm on our checkout... More

We had the pleasure to stay in Riad Kniza (it's in name = a real hidden treasure in the middle of it all!) a couple of nights last month. We had a great time and truly enjoyed hospitality exceeding the 5 stars standard. Staff always present, smiling and making sure you are always comfortable. Glad we trusted the fantastic reviews...

Riad Kniza deserves the highest ratings. My two nights' stay here was the highlight of my Moroccan trip. The staff's attention to detail is incredible, not to mention the absolutely gorgeous interiors that have been well-preserved throughout history. The atmosphere was magical. I would definitely come back to stay here again when I return to Marrakech in the future.

Nestled within the Medina this gem of a boutique hotel delivers everything that you could ask for. We chose it for a double birthday celebration and we were delighted with the menu, service and overall experience. Many thanks! Sophie

I've been to Marrakech many times, and I also visited many Moroccan riads.. Riad Kniza is surely one of the most amazing places out there. The moment you walk in, you'll be amazed by atmosphere of that place. Quiet, chill, smells like heaven ! If you get there in the evening you might even found a live traditional band playing... More

My family and I had an awesome stay at Kniza Riad. The rooms are fabulous. The ambiance is amazing, and the service is second to none. We enjoyed our stay so much, we wanted to spend an extra night. Unfortunately, they were booked. We spent the night at La Maison Arabe which was more expensive but the service was not... More
