Aside from excellent accomodations and superb hospitality, the staff went out of their way to help uw with our extensive travel plans throughout Morocco, AFTER we had departed. Kamal was able to save us a great deal of money arranging private guides with new SUV's for half the best price we could find elsewhere. Hi adivce on where to stay... More

We arrived at 9 pm from having spent a night in the desert (Erfoud) totally exhausted and hungry. The minute we got to the Riad, Kamal and his staff took over. We were ushered into our beautiful suites and had a wonderful meal at the restaurant. A surprise was the belly dancing show along with dinner and after having many... More

The Riad Kniza is a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary. From the intricate tilework and beautifully embroidered fabrics to the sound of water falling in the main courtyard fountain and the delicious tagine dishes, this place is an absolute feast for the senses. Even if we had never set foot out the door to see Marrakech, it still would have been... More

This was our first trip to Morocco and our stay at Riad Kniza made the experience a memorable one. We have traveled all over the world and stayed in many luxury hotels and resorts, but this was our first stay in a property like a riad. The Riad Kniza was an experience that I would highly recommend with no reservations,... More

I stayed here for 4 nights and can thoroughly recommend this Riad.It has been beautifully restored by the family generations of whom have owned the property for 200 years.Spotlessly clean, superlative service and friendly staff made my stay very memorable. All the excellent meals were served in delightful surroundings and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My friend... More

My wife and I went on a trip to Marocco. I booked the Hotel Riad Kniza in Marrakech before hand with the Sons owner Kamal, checking on prices and deals, and it was the best experience we had. I'm from the hospitality business myself but this was somethings else. Included in the package we had a local Gourmet dinner with... More

As a travel writer, I frequently stay in hotels the world over as part of my traveling and writing about my travel experiences. Riad Kniza is, quite simply, one of the most beautiful and service-oriented hotels I have ever been. The place has been in the family for two centuries, and some years ago was added to and remodeled to... More

My wife and i went to Marrakech and stayed at Riad Kniza after spending a few days in Fez (at one of the top hotels) and this was really special. We booked the Royal Suite Bahia (the top of the line) since there were only 2 rooms available and we aren't coming back to Morocco any time soon given the... More

We went to Riad Kniza for a special birthday celebration, looking for somewhere out of the ordinary. We were not disappointed in any way. The suite we had booked was superb, and even now our photos make us go 'wow' at the memory. The beautiful and tasteful decoration, combined with the 'whatever you want, whenever you want' service which was... More

I celebrated my 50th Birthday at Riad Kniza along with my closest friends, 17 of us in all taking over the whole of the Riad. The Riad itself has to be seen to be believed, it's stunning.
