After reading all of the extraordinary reviews on Riad Kniza, there was no way we were going to stay anywhere else but there. A couple of e-mails later, we were surely going to embark on an adventure whilst staying in opulent luxury. The adventure was there for sure, but what about all these positive reviews? Riad Kniza is very beautiful,... More

Management response:

As a reply to the review posted by the guests who lost three items of clothing, it is important to add that these guests stayed at Riad Kniza for few nights and moved to another Riad before they came back to finish the rest of their stay in Marrakech with us. The guests took with them some of their belongings... More

I don't even know where to begin. My sister-in law and I stayed at the Riad Kniza at the beginning of a 3 week trip around Africa. Once I discovered this Riad on the Internet, I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Kamal was extremely helpful in making all arrangments for our stay. We were in need of 5 nights accomadations,... More

The TripAdvisor reviews don't even begin to do this wonderful residence justice. Kamal and his staff were so helpful in planning our trip. The emails flew back and forth, and every question was answered and attended to. We were met at the airport by Kamal himself. After a quick drive around the city, we were taken to the lovely Riad...

My friend and I stayed at Riad Kniza for three nights in May. The hotel is very welcoming and the room was lovely. Unlike all the other riads we looked at it was the only one that offered twin beds. Travelling as a single person either alone or with a friend can be really difficult and frustratingly expensive. This was... More

Why duplicate exactly what's been said about Riad Kniza? It's amazingly luxurious, without being pretentious. You will never want for anything (the staff will see to that) within the four walls of this achingly lovely riad. Stay here, but save room for my return!

Just returned from a wonderful four-night stay at the Riad. To reiterate the rest of the reviews, service could not be better. Each time we returned to the tranquility of the Riad we were warmly welcomed and offered mint tea and pastries and made to feel this was our 'home' for the duration of our stay. When it rained, we...

We have stayed in European 5 Star hotels but this Riad was exceptional in comparison. We were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble. Our son of 3 years was kept entertained by the staff and everyone and everything was just perfect.

From being met at the airport by Kamel we received top class, warm friendly service at all times. As mentioned in other reviews the Riad is beautiful and packed full of interesting art all put together with amazing taste. Food at the Riad is lovely. I was not well for a couple of days so Kamel arranged for some soup... More

We stayed for 3 days to celebrate our silver wedding. It was a great choice. The Riad Kniza is a haven of luxury and tranquillity in the mayhem of the Medina. Ring the bell and the door opens and you could be in a different world. The staff were faultless, the breakfasts excellent, the suite was luxurious. This is a... More

In need of a few days away from the UK and the somewhat depressing world of the NHS, who could have believed the perfect scene that greeted us when Samira opened the door at 34 Derb l'Hotel. Riad Kniza has been restored with exquisite taste and is furnished throughout with antiques from the family antique shop (well worth a visit).... More
