When looking for accomodation for our trip to Marrakech, I came across this hotel on Lastminute.com for a very reasonable price. After reading reviews on several hotels I am so glad I picked this one. The Riad is in an excellent location, just inside the Bab Doukalla, a gate on the north-west perimeter of the Medina. Venturing out of the... More

Without any exageration, this Riad is the best. My wife and I stayed at the Riad at the beginning of December and I apologise to the Riad for not writing this sooner.. We both have stayed at some very nice hotels in the past in some equally interesting cities and countries and I have to say that without exception, This... More

We fully support the rave reviews on this site. It is indeed difficult to fault any aspect of our three night stay. The only missing facility was a pool (however small). Even in the 'mid-winter ' of January, with temperatures well into the twenties, a quick dip after a hard morning's sightseeing would have been welcome. Apart from this, the... More

I have struggled to find a negative because it's so hard to believe that perfection exists in this mad world, but it does and it's called Kniza. Without exception the owners and staff were wonderfully helpful, always there to sort anything that we wanted to do. The suite was lovely and cosy with mega comfortable beds and it became a... More

This Riad is perfectly situated on the edge of the Medina a short 10 min walk to the Jemaa-Al-Fna. The staff could not have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The Riad is beautifully furnished giving it an exotic feel. The kitchen was able to make anything you required I took two children under 13 and they... More

We stayed at Riad Kniza for 3 nights in November, and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this Riad. It was like an oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the medina. From the ornately carved woodwork and plaster; to the decor of the rooms; the rooftop terrace; the food; the incredible hospitality of the staff -it... More

This was the most incredible place we visited. We had read the reviews online which were excellent so we already had high expectations - but these were surpassed during our stay at the Riad Kniza. we were treated like royalty for our four days at the kniza. as there are only seven rooms you really feel like you know the...
