We had a wonderful stay here. It is a traditional Moroccan riad. Beautiful mosaics, plaster work, and wooden ceilings. The roof top terrace was a little too cool for us but it is wonderful in warmer weather. Our room was large and comfortable. Meals are by appointment and are delicious. Breakfast s an individual buffet. Every member of the staff... More

"Only my mum has treated me better than you". This is what I told Kamal, the smiling manager of Riad Kniza, at the end of our stay. As a southern Italian, this is arguably the best compliment I could have made him. Riad Kniza is simply fabulous. Strategically located, inside the Medina but close to one of the entry gates...

Dont trust your first impression when you land in Marrakesh and are dropped off in your taxi. The riad is located in a very run down area however once you step though the door you are blown away with sheer opulance and fantastic service. Our room (9) was amazing with a lounge area and fire place offered up with fresh... More

Riad Kniza is a wonderful riad right insider the Marrrakech medina. Lovely public rooms downstairs -- including a beautiful pool and steam room -- and very welcoming staff. Our dinner was wonderful and overwhelming in its choices and variety (the salads were particularly good and different from many we had had throughout Morocco). Breakfast was also great (and plentiful) and... More

I can say this was the best place I've ever stayed. The riad is located in an alleyway but don't let this fool you- once inside you are met with a spectacular site. We were first given some morrocan whiskey (mint tea) whilst our suite was prepared (we arrived at 10am before the check in time but this was no... More

We have just returned from 4 days in Marrakesh. The owners and staff of Riad Kniza helped to make it a very memorable stay. We had meals in the other very expensive hotels of Marrakesh but the food inRiad Kniza was the best of all. The hotel and staff deserve every one of the five stars we have given them.

The Riad is absolutely beautiful. Such a warm and romanic welcome awaited us with absolutely charming red rose petals carefully placed to adorn all the rooms. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, we even met the owner! Nothing is too much trouble. the Riad is very spacious with a lot of areas to eat. Well located in the Medina, everything... More

This place is amazing! At first we were surprised by the location, opposite a dusty rubble filled empty lot down a backstreet of the bustling market. But once inside the giant wooden doors, you enter a completely different world. The doors came to look so inviting to my wife and I after days spent in the crazy streets of the... More

My partner and I stayed at the Riad Kniza the week leading up to Christmas. Everything about our stay was outstanding. The staff are exceptional – so friendly and efficient. They couldn’t do enough to help, on my birthday they bought a cake to our room! Our trip with Mohammed round the Souks was fantastic, we learnt so much and... More

We recently stayed at Riad Kniza from the 31st to the 5th. The property was amazing, and we cannot say enough about the quality of our stay. Firstly, the riad is stunning. Secondly, and most importantly, the service was outstanding, and the staff went out of their way to help us and make us comfortable. From customizing breakfast requests to... More
