We have just spent four nights at this superb riad. We spent three at the beginning of our stay and one at the end after spending three nights at the Kasbah du Toubkal. On our return to Riad Kniza we were greeted like old friends and the staff wanted to know all about our stay in the mountains. It was... More

I booked the Riad Kniza on the basis of recommendations on Trip Advisor and have to say, having just returned, that it more than lived up to expectations. Right from the start, Kamal and his staff proved that nothing was too much trouble; my brother and I arrived on separate flights but no matter, a driver was sent to retrieve... More

Loved Marrakech and the Riad Kniza. Room (not sure I agree with the suite status our room had) was very comfortable, breakfast lovely on the roof terrace and as has been said many times before the staff are truly exceptional, gentle, kind and fantastically helpful without over-fussing. Also I really like the location near Bab Doukkala gate in the Medina,... More

We have just got back from the most amazing weekend in Marrakech and the best part of the trip was this wonderful Riad. The reviews and pictures you see on here can never do it justice and all I can say is that you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. The place is beautiful but for... More

We had the most unbelievable fantastic time and experience at Riad Kniza. Just after we arrived my wife and I came down ill from some tea we drank elsewhere earlier in the day. The people at the Riad got a doctor to come to our room (twice in fact), got our medicine at a local pharmacy, cooked us special meals... More

Many other reviewers have written at length about the Riad Kniza and this very short review is just to confirm that all the superlatives are true, If you want 5 star accomodation, unrivaled service, total piece of mind, the Riad Kniza experience is for you. Do not have any doubts. Our 5 night stay in February 2007 could not have... More

I have stayed at many hotels and B&B's throughtout the world but I have never had a better stay in all my years of travel. The hotel itself is adorned with antiques of the highest taste and has been lovingly restored to create an old world atmoshere that works in a modern age. The location could not have been better...

Marrakech seems to be a conumdrum. First its a vibrant city, but it is still somewhere in the dark ages.. or is it! As you wander through the old souks of the city you get the impression that it hasnt changed for hundreds of years, until you catch a glimpse of a satellite dish on the roof. The Riad Kniza... More

This was an oasis of calm in the madness of Marrakech! A lovely, calm atmosphere, where nothing was too much trouble. Friendly staff and lovely surroundings- making my partner's surprise 40th trip just perfect!
