We have just returned from a long weekend stay at the Riad Kniza. It was a special birthday celebration and the party consisted of five couples. The hotel was just perfect. Mohamed and his staff could not do enough for us and made our stay exceptional. Our rooms were beautiful, especially our suite the Royal Bahia, it was magnificent. I... More

Just back from a wonderful week in Morocco, first four nights of which we spent at Riad Kniza. What a wonderful experience, from the shock for my other half of arriving in a market in Marrakech and walking through the market and down an empty alley - I think he thought I'd lost the plot! Then arriving in the Riad... More

It is difficult to add to what has already been said about this absolute gem of a place. 5 stars don't adequately describe it! The breakfasts were superb, and the evening meals were worth every penny and more. No menu; they discuss your preferences when you tell them you want to have a meal. If you want something particular or... More

I arranged to stay here as a birthday surprise for my wife and what a surprise. The accommodation is sensational, opulent with ornate decoration and the location is ideal being so close to the food markets. It provides a wonderfully tranquil environment, perfect after a day out in the souks. The service was generally impeccable with our every whim catered... More

My husband and I spent several days at the end of April at this fantastic riad, and in 40 years of travel, we have never stayed anywhere to match it. From the driver who met us at the airport (he gave us a mini-tour explaining the miles of roses, the old walls, some history), to Kamal, his father Mohamed, and... More

I spent 4 lovely days with my son and daughter in Riad Kniza. The location was good, in the north of the medina, though a bit far from Jemaa El Fna. Service was excellent, everybody was so kind and helpful, nothing was too much for them. I loved the mint tea they served with delicious cookies when we returned to... More

This small riad located in the old mdina of Marrakech is an absolute delight. Beautiful antiques everywhere, service second to none, wonderful food....it is hard to find anything to criticise about this place. We spent a wonderful three nights here and will certainly return.

I have stayed in many places worldwide from 5* lodges in Africa to boutique hotels in LA and none have compared to the service, friendliness and overall experience of this hotel. They truely make you feel like a friend rather than a guest and nothing is ever too much trouble. I love this hotel especially as its in real Marrakech... More

My husband and I stayed at Riad Kniza for 4 nights in April. For 3 nights we were in Suite Kenza and one night in Deluxe Room Samar. Everything about this Riad was wonderful. The rooms, the service, the breakfast, the mint tea, the staff, the owners, the location, their recommendations...We can't wait to go back again one day.
