My husband and I are just back from Riad Kniza having stayed for 4 of the most magical nights! We had pre-booked dinner on arrival and after some welcoming mint tea were treated to an exquisite six course meal of traditional Moroccan food in beautiful surroundings and superb service. Outside is the souk - colourful, hectic but amazing - another... More

This is a lovely small riad with rooms spread around courtyards. There are various sitting areas, a pool, a dining room with log fire and a lovely roof terrace where breakfast can be taken on sunny days. Our room was moderate in size but decorated in traditional decor, spotlessly clean, had room for a table and a couple of chairs... More

... as his father, grandfather, great-grandfather before him. The riad is splendid as a building, with its courtyards, pool, its varied rooms, all tucked away behind bland-seeming walls, but it is the family feeling that gives it such edge. The February chill whilst we were there was warded off by open fires, hot soup, succulent lamb, and the exceptional warmth... More

We are so happy to have chosen this riad. It was a stunning place to stay, with all the original features of a very grand family home. The owners have created a very traditional and exceptionally tasteful small hotel. I would say that the quiet, traditional atmosphere is more suited to an 'older' guest and indeed the other guests we... More

It was simply that - outstanding. It's an oasis right in a bustling, exciting and very hectic city. Great location. Gorgeously decoratied, live music at night - the perfect experience. My wife and I stayed here last weekend and it was wonderful. We reserved a junior suite but we're upgrade to larger suite, which was gorgeous. It had high ceilings... More

Was quite disappointed, i was expecting more after reading all the reviews of this hotel. The service of the hotel was not to bad. Sadly i didn't like the dinner at all. The room was not too bad, though the room was rather big the way the furniture was kept it made the space very tight. Wifi connection in the... More

From the moment we were met at the airport Riad Kniza took care of our every need. A guide to the city, massage and dinner were included. Food and drinks are served whenever and wherever you want them. They even lit the fire in our room when it turned chilly at night. You are surrounded by the hustle and bustle... More

Was recommended by a friend who stayed here - we booked a senior suite which was fantastic, the Riad staff are exceptional and nothing was too much travel. The place was kept very clean and the nightly entertainment was great and authentic. Plus was free non-alcholic drinks :-) roof terrace was lovely and the breakfast was a good, eggs, pancakes,...
