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

We stayed for four nights at the Riad in January 2009. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and spoke perfect English. We were given a free upgrade to a junior suite - a beautiful room with a wonderful domed ceiling. The food was great - don't eat unless you are very hungry as the meals were substantial. Breakfasts were... More

What a lovely Oasis of quiet serenity after hard days of shopping in the dusty Souks of Marrakech. My wife and I fell in love with this place after having a less then pleasant 2 nights at another Riad. This place is just so oppulant that you may not want to leave as the rooms and foyers, and ramparts on... More

Riad Kniza was an amazing place to stay. I can't even call it a "hotel" because the staff make you feel like you are in their home. They are welcoming and attentive. Kamal is the manager and he made sure everything was perfect! Their breakfast's were soo good!! Rooms are big and very comfortable. I traveled with my husband, parents... More

This was the last part of our trip, so Riad Kniza was our last stop before going home. We only stayed in Riads in Morocco and recommend to any traveler that they do the same. We were treated as family and felt we were in a person's home, and Riad Kniza was no exception! Riad Kniza was gorgeous! The rooms,... More

My husband and I just spent five wonderful nights at the Riad Kniza. We travel and use hotels extensively, but the service at this Riad was exemplary. The manager, Kamal, and his staff were all friendly, courteous and efficient, and they did everything to ensure we encountered no hassles. The rooms were very pretty, very tastefully done and very clean.... More
