The Riad Kniza is among the best places we have stayed in in over 40 years of travelling. Coming from the UK it is more than refreshing to find staff so accommodating and friendly - not to mention polite. Nothing appears too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms and suites charming and the service, impeccable. Further, don't... More

This is a marvelous place in the old city of Marrakech. The guidebooks will tell you that you have 3 options for accomodations in Marrakech: the old city; the new city; or the Palmerie. If you want the full experience of Marrakech, stay in the old city. Riad Kniza is a family owned and run riad in the old city.... More

I had never been to morocco and it was my boyfriends first time overseas, so it was great to have someone pick us up from the airport and... More

Stayed here with my wife for our first anniversary. Very pleased with Kamal and his staff. This place is tucked away on a narrow side street off the main medina. From the outside you could not tell what a gem this place is. As soon as the front doors open, its like a portal to story from Arabian Nights. The... More

We stayed in the duplex Ambar Suite for four nights and loved every minute. Kamal and his staff could not have been more accomodating. They went out of their way to fulfill every wish we has during our stay. This included having snaps installed on a leather bag, searching for the correct memory stick, "whatever you want" menu at mealtimes,... More

We enjoyed a splendid 3 days at Riad Kniza and would return without question. The food is excellent, the service is impeccable, and they offer to take care of any needs at all--sightseeing, massage and steam bath, restaurant recommendations. Kamal is an impeccable host. Highly, highly recommended!

My husband and myself have just come back from a four night stay at the Riad Kniza and were totally delighted with it. The staff could not have been more helpful, generous of their time and strenuous in their efforts to do everything possible to make our stay exceptional - and it was. The quality of the staff was matched... More

The Staff of Riad Kniza could not have been more welcoming, more helpful or more charming. Kamal Bouskri and his team make this delightful, small hotel a real secluded gem, just off the hustle and bussle of Bab Doukala and life in the Medina. Rooms are a little chilly in January, but the open fires quickly warmed us up. The... More
