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

We stayed in Riad Kniza for three nights and it was wonderful. The Riad is located in the Medina, making it easy to walk to the most interesting parts of Marrakech. The staff is warm, welcoming, and accommodating of any need. The rooms are beautiful and the food is not to be missed. We stayed there after a week-long tour... More

We had a fantastic 3 night stay at the Riad Kniza. We were upgraded to the Royal Suite upon checkin, which was amazing. The riad is beautifully decorated and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had dinner at the riad on 2 separate nights, both were delicious. Would recommend this place if heading to Marrakech

We stayed here 2 nights on our trip to Marrakech and it felt like we were staying with family. A super friendly pick up by staff, no menus in the restaurant... simply tell them what you like and they serve it and it was delicious!!. I would highly recommend Kniza.

Walking down a small alley, who would guess a palace would be just inside a big wooden door? Well, be prepared, because this riad is a gem! The vintage Moroccan decor is superb as is the service and the staff. The rooms are incredible, incorporatng the past with contemporary amenities. Our rooms included an incredible sitting area, bedroom, and huge... More

I stayed here with my other half in Feb 2014. We were here for an extended Valentine's day break and split our stay between the Maison Arabe and the Riad Kniza. We were very lucky as we stayed at 2 excellent (and quite different) places. We had a split-level duplex suite at the Riad Kniza, it was very luxurious, very... More

This perfectly located 18th-century riad has been in the Bouskri family for almost 200 years and offers the complete package of traditional architecture, authentic furnishings, exquisite cuisine and, above all, overwhelmingly hospitable service. The owner, Mohamed Bouskri, having been a guide for the rich and famous for 34 years (Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, former US presidents and others) is a mine of information and is always glad to share his knowledge and passion of Marrakech. ... more   less
