Visited Marrakech for 4 days during early November and spent the first 2 days at Riad Kniza and the last two in a hotel in the new city. Reservations for the Riad were handled promptly by email and all arrangements made for airport pick-up went as planned. So good in fact, we forgot to exchange money at the airport, since... More

It is hard to know where to begin when singing the praises of Riad Kniza and its staff. I recently stayed at the Riad from November 5-11, 2008 with 12 family and friends to celebrate my birthday. We took over the entire Riad except for 2 bedrooms. To say that the Riad is stunningly beautiful is an understatement. It is... More

This was a boutique hotel to remember. Greeted by fantastic staff headed by the family that owns the Riad we felt like we were staying in their home. It was lovely to relax in the salon overlooking the courtyard and fountain and sip mint tea (or coffee if you wish) after coming in through the busy streets of the souk.... More

Where do I start?? All the other reviewers have said it all--but until I experienced Riad Kniza I couldn't have understood how right they have been in their praise. 1. Our welcome: the owner brought us the traditional tea and cookies. When reviewing our room choice I asked him if he thought I had made the right decision. He said... More

Firstly, let me say that my husband and I are not “bed and breakfast” types. We normally prefer much bigger resorts. However, after reading the number of positive reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to try Riad Kniza. We cannot say enough positive things about this Riad. It was amazing. The quality touches in this place are outstanding- from the suites... More

All the reviews of Marrakech wax lyrical but, we struck gold with Kniza. Yes it is more expensive than the average, but having stayed in a much lower price place on our return to Marrakech for the airport, I can say that the money at Kniza was very well spent. I do not think I have ever stayed in a... More

Marrakech is a fantastic destination to visit but after a few hours in the insanity of the souks you really need a break. Down an alley in the most unlikely of places you will find the doors of the riad Kniza. The riad is an oasis of calm and as soon as the large wooden door closes you are transported... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Kniza and would recommend this Riad wholeheartedly. Our transfer was waiting for us at the airport and we were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown around the property by Kamal, before taking our (first of many) mint tea on the roof terrace. Having read the positive... More
