In common with most other reviewers I cannot speak too highly of Riad Kniza. I and my wife accompanied by our 2 late teen children spent 2 nights in the Bahia suite and a junior suite respectively in early April. Both were lovely rooms - the Bahia particularly, very spacious, well appointed and quiet. The email communication prior to our... More

we just came back from Marrakech, and i had to write this review. We had the most wonderful stay at riad kniza. The people, the surroundings, the beauty of the place are not to be believed. The rooms are gorgeous, we had a pleasure of staying in two different rooms, and they were both very nice, and beautifully decorated. The... More

I can only fully endorse the positive reviews that have already been written. The service,attention to detail,comfort,ambiance,and facilities are all excellent. However room 7 is affected by outside noise,so avoid if you are light sleepers. ALSO,THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT WHY YOU ARE VISITING MARRAKECH - IT ISN'T PLEASANT

Well, how do you write a review after reading all the other previous ones. I can only confirm how lovely a Riad this is. The ambience and beauty of the hotel was superb. The staff were most helpful and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. The meals were served at our own convenience, no set times, and the food... More

I have been there for 3 nights in March. Riad Kniza was the highlight of our stay. The service is unique very personalised and luxurious. My wife and I felt like being the unique guests in the Riad. The food was also amazing, tasting the best Moroccan dishes. I highly recommend Riad Kniza for couples looking for a good rest... More

You feel like you are staying in a private palace from the moment you arrive. They welcome you in one of their gorgeous sitting rooms, with an ample serving of local pastries, and, of course, mint tea. You meander through the courtyards to your room. We stayed in the King Bahai suite and were blown away. It is not to... More

What not to love about Riad Kniza! The building is just beautiful with a stunning courtyard, lovely pool and a particularly nice roof terrace and the staff are all wonderfully helpful and friendly from the cleaners to Walid on reception. Our room (no 5) was beautiful - with romantic drapes over the bed and sofa/cushions to lounge on. We had... More

Very romantic and luxurious place, the best food, excellent and highly educated staff that paid attention to every detail. From the moment of booking they offered to pick us up at the airport. The staff was very friendly.

Just a few steps away from the madness of the Marrakech Medina, this Riad was everything we hoped for and more. We were collected at the airport, a relief being mother and daughter travelling alone, and then welcomed by Walid at the Riad with a map to orientate us accompanied by mint tea and moroccan pastries. We were thrilled to... More

The rooms and the service were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Riad has a lot of charme and feels very authentic. Apparently it is one of the very very few Riads that is actually Moroccan managed. Most other Riads are owned by foreigners. The guided city tour by a certified guide that is included in the rate,...
