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.

My wife and I loved this riad. It had everything: beautiful antique Moroccan decor, nice indoor swimming pool, great views from the roof garden, excellent location within the Medina, friendly staff, quiet atmosphere, and delicious food. It is authentic with a sense of place unlike the huge, Hollywood-style La Mamounia which could be located anywhere. If you want a feeling... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The Riad is a beautiful renovated and very well located in Marrakech. We were very well received by the staff and they arranged the best guide in the city.

I have been in many places, but never felt a so charming and cozy treatment. Riad Kniza is undoubtedly a fantastic place to stay ... surrounded of superb architectural good feelings. All the staff is very good but the persons that we’ve contacted more were superb: • The Managers always present and attentive • The smiling and helpful reception staff... More

We travelled with 2 teenagers. It was going to be a holiday never to forget and it truly was. From the moment we booked till the moment we were dropped off back at the airport, we felt very welcome, home and comfortable. A cooking experience with Amina, the chef, shopping for the ingredients, special care was taken for one of... More

Riad Kniza (www/riadkniza.com) is located in the medina of Marrakech on the site of the owner's' 200 year old family home. The Riad has been rebuilt following the architectural details gleaned from family photographs. Every detail from woodwork, tilework, and furnishings has been carefully executed by local craftsmen using hand-held tools. The open courtyard with a beautiful fountain is flooded... More

Service was excellent at this Riad. It's seconds away from the rush and teeming life that is the medina but it feels another world away as soon as you step in the door. It's tranquil, relaxed and very well run, with 24 hour reception facilities. From the welcome cup of peppermint tea to them seeing you out the door, the... More

The decoration was very authetic and very well cared for. The roof terrass was an incredible place to take the meals, which were lovely. The staff was excellent. The... More

My wife and I, and another couple stayed at the Riad Kniza for four nights. We had just come from the Jamai Palace in Fez. The Jamai Palace is an exceptional hotel, but the Riad Kniza experience was more of a visit to an elegant Moroccan home, where the sincere hospitality and interest in your having a wonderful stay were...
