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.

We stayed at raid Kniza for three nights in the autumn of 2013. Our room was clean and the service was very good but, after staying in other riads in Marrakesh and Essouria and the Atlas Mountains, there was nothing about Kniza that touched me.

If you haven't been to any Riad then I suggest you should experience it at least once. Riad Kniza is the only Riad I had stayed in so far and I am sure others may be equally good too, but the experience of hospitality at this one, was very memorable. Transportation from airport was included in our stay and a... More

The staff at this guesthouse could not be friendlier or more helpful. They were all charming. The owners too were extremely welcoming. A hair drier, toiletries, fruit and water were all provided in our room and replenished when necessary. Our room (no.7) overlooked the narrow derb and was a little noisy at times. However we enjoyed the sounds of the... More

Everything about Riad Kniza is class. The service, the food , the rooms and the Haman are all brilliant. The location of this hotel is close enough to the tourist souks but then its just far enough away to be a perfect location to also experience the "local" Marrakech. I will return.
