After arriving in the Medina of Marrakech and walking down a narrow side street to a plain looking front door we were unsure what to expect. On entry we realised we had found a gem, inside Riad Kniza seems a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the streets outside. The tranquility and beauty of the spaces and... More

£1 - 13dhs This riad is beautiful and one of the best places I have ever stayed because you will simply not experience anything like it anywhere else. Off a busy bustling street behind a fruit and veg stand is a door way down a dodgy looking corridor thats a dead end of a street - there is a door... More

We stayed at the Riad Kniza for three nights having booked it due to the overwhelming glowing reviews. The location is good especially if, like us, you want to be in an authentic part of Marrakech. Although the immediate surroundings of this Riad are not for the faint hearted, it is what Marrakech is all about. The Riad Kniza is... More

My husband and I just spent the best 6 days in Marrakech at Riad Kniza. We where celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary and Riad Kniza made it better than our Honeymoon. We took advantage of their special package and I have to say that it was superb, it didn't feel like a package it was luxury and service all... More

I just wanted to say thank you very much to all the staff at the Riad Kniza for looking after me and my friend Natalie on our stay in Marrakech. Being two young girls travelling for the first time to morocco being out in the old Medina was a bit daunting but once in the hotel you felt safe and... More

Riad Kniza is an amazingly beautiful oasis in the madness of the medina of Marrakesh. The rooms - public & private - are stunningly decorated. The service was wonderful -everyone is very friendly and helpful. And the food at breakfast and dinner was delicious. I highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

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
