This is certainly not the only Riad in Marrakech, but it is quite possibly the best. My experience was uniformly excellent. The Riad and its rooms are beautifully decorated; no surprise as the owner is a well-established antiques dealer with an excellent gallery of his own (also worth a visit.) The public ares of the Riad are gorgeous. There are... More

We just returned from a 10 day trip to Morocco and Riad Kniza was without a doubt the best riad of our trip. The property is absolutely beautiful and in a wonderful location just inside the Medina. But what really made this place special was the staff. The service was absolutely 5 star. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and... More

I recently stayed in a beautiful suite at the Riad Kniza with my 23 year old daughter and 19 year old son. The rooms were so beautiful and the beds so comfortable we had a hard time leaving. The bath was totally modern and luxurious with all amenities. Our stay included airport transfers and a half day guide (which we... More

The welcome was the warmest we have ever enjoyed and the service superb throughout our all-too-short stay. The Riad is beautifully restored to glory and the indoor pool a welcome oasis from the hustle and bustle which awaits just outside the front door. We can't wait to return. Read the other reviews - it is hard to add to them.... More

This is a gem of a place with luxurious amenities (nice terrace, nice pool, nice patios) and very dedicated, nice staff who went out of their way to help us; clearly above average!! The place has been recently refurbished and all details are up-to-date and in optimum condition. A beautiful oasis of tranquility in a very loud city of Marrakech!

This family owned and operated riad was the highlight of our tour. We were treated like family, given a personal tour of the souk and museum, and provided excellent tips for surviving the many tourist scams. There was no request that the family or staff could not accommodate. The owner has been tour guide to five U.S. presidents and personally... More

I use Trip advisor all the time when looking for places to stay and this is the first time I have posted a review. I had high expectations of Riad Kniza & Marrakech... very rarely does a experience go beyond those expectations! Riad Kniza is the most amazing place, stunning in every aspect. We stayed 4 nights, one night in... More

Due to a mess up with our booking at another riad we were fortunate enough to find a spare room ar Riad Kniza. And how lucky we were! From the moment we arrived Samira and her colleagues looked after us tremendously and it was always a pleasure returning to the riad after a day out in the streets of the... More

We spent four days at the Riad Kniza in April and it was a wonderful break. The hotel is well situated, within walking distance of all the sights in the medina, but also close to the medina walls and the more modern parts of the city. We had booked a room, but were upgraded to a beautifully-furnished junior suite. On... More
