At the end of a narrow street off one of the main streets of the Souk is a large wooden door. Outside - mayhem. Through that door you will discover one of the most enchanting experiences imaginable. Fountains, rose petals, luxuriously decorated and wonderfully appointed suites and rooms, delicious food and sybaritic dining experiences on the roof terrace. We had... More

I don't remember how we chose to stay in Riad Kniza, but it was the best place we ever stayed all over the world. When I emailed hotel to book the room, senior suite was not available so I booked the regular room. When we arrived we were told that we had upgrade to senior suite. How wonderful! Like other...

A lovely, tranquil Riad right in the Medina. Excellent service, mint tea & pastries when you arrive (& at any time you ask), lovely rooms, beautiful furniture, superb food & great service. Everything you could want for a stay in Marrakesh. Very good breakfast on the roof terrace. All within a 10 minute walk of the main souks & Jemaa... More

Gorgeous rooms and fabulous services (dining, spa, city guides) are provided, but what makes the Riad Kniza unique is their staff. The level of hospitality they provide is extraordinary and has probably spoiled me forever. For example, I just stayed at the Ritz in Madrid and thought, "Well, it's beautiful, but the staff at the Riad Kniza is better..."

Tucked behind a wooden door on a backstreet in the medina is this stunning riad with truly exceptional staff and service. The riad itself is ABSOLUTELY beautiful. We spent 4 wonderful days in Marrakesh, spending most mornings exploring the market, museum etc., returning to this haven of tranquillity for an afternoon g&t before enjoying dinner in the riad (fantastic) or...

A gorgeously restored Riad in the Medina of Marrakech. The warmth of service there is unparalleled and we felt totally looked after from the moment we got in touch. The whole place was spotlessly clean, and managed to be both cosy and spacious. Had such a fabulous massage there which relaxed me for the whole weekend. Comfy beds, authentic design,... More

Delightful, helpful staff; magnificent suite with great attention to design detail; splendid food (and so much of it...); not too far on foot from the Jamaa el-Fnaa and the souk. Utterly charming and comfortable.

We had suite #1 and it was perfectly beautiful. The bed was so very comfortable, the carpets elegant, exceptionally clean. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The Riad itself is lovely and restful. The food at breakfast and dinner was delicious and in beautiful settings. It may have been the best place we stayed in Morocco.

After extensive research, we selected this Riad to celebrate my 50th birthday. What an incredible find! We were lucky to be upgraded to the Royal suite, Bahia. An exceptionally large bedroom, decorated in sumptuous style with antiques overlooking the central courtyard. The large sitting room area made the perfect bedroom for our daughter, divided by a large bathroom. Nothing was... More

We were dropped off by our car after an 8 hour drive from Fes & we're just blown away by the beauty & tranquility of this hotel. We were warmly welcomed, refreshed with a freshly squeezed juice and shown round the hotel before being taken to our Senior Suite which had a sumptuous living area, twin beds & a large... More
