We recently spent four days here. Riad Kniza offers a rare combination of an authentic and deeply civilized home, with the best characteristics of a luxury hotel discreetly and consistently present. The classically Moroccan surroundings are impressive on entering, but it takes a day or two to take in the special atmosphere of the place and notice the care taken... More

Cordial contact before our arrival,including very helpful advice on arrival and travel plans in the area assured us this was a great choice. Our initial contact was upon the upon the recommendation of friends who had previously traveled to Marrakech and were not able to stay at Riad Kniza. The entire experience was delightful from the vivid spotless atmosphere of... More

Riad situated near a Gateway in the Walls of the Medina, we passed the food stalls into neat Derb l'Hotel and found this haven of calm and elegance. A refreshing glass of mint tea was provided in one of the dining suites by the cream pierced walled court yard with its petal strewn fountain, like all of our non alcoholic... More

We had the pleasure of spending four nights at the Riad Kniza and must share our wonderful experience with the tripadvisor.com community. We enjoyed a beautifully decorated two-story suite, filled with antiques collected by the riad's owner, Monsieur Bouskri. The riad's public spaces (several stunning lounges, tranquil courtyard, picturesque terraces and even a swimming pool) are all lovely. Besides enjoying... More

We spent 4 nights in this superb riad. The rooms are cool,beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean (and trust me I am fussy about cleanliness). The service was exceptionally good. The staff are friendly,courteous and attentive without being over the top. And the food.... the best I have eaten anywhere in a long, long time. This is a definite must when... More

I loved this hotel and I highly recommend it! The decor was charming and all the rooms have beautiful antiques and are authentically decorated. Also, the service and location was great. If you stay here, definitely eat dinner at the RIad Kniza. Our dinner here was one of my all time favorite meals! It's a must!

I am currently sat on the roof terrace of Riad Kniza admiring the view of the Atlas mountains before I leave in the next hour. You can see why Riad Kniza is top rated and has won Trip Advisor awards. The service is excellent from our arrival to our depart. The staff are very polite and helpful and nothing is... More

Travelled to Marrakech with my girlfriend and my parents for a 3 day get-away and could not have been more thrilled. Thought it was a bit mad at first as we were led down a very busy, narrow, market street, really shocking your every sense, but then turned off down a small side street, rounded the corner and there was...

We love Riad Kniza. It's as simple as that. I've been recommending this place to so many people since I've been back. The service is impeccable. Staff are so friendly and very attentive. Location is good, despite the 10-15min walk to the main square, Djemaa el Fna. The Riad itself is beautiful and peaceful (even though being in the centre... More

Located a short walk from Bab Doukala, and a 10 minute walk to Jemaa el Fna. We arrived at Riad Kniza after 10 hours of traveling, & were greeted by the warm, friendly & the riad's brilliant gem, Samira. Our 2 rooms, both suites were beautifully decorated & had all the comforts of home! The roof terrace where breakfast daily... More
