We spent 5 days at the Riad Kniza last week and we concur with most other reviewers. This is an amazing place. Upon arrival to the area near the entrance to the Riad, the first reaction is one of culture shock. You have to walk through a busy market reminiscent of something out of National Geographic but after walking down a narrow alley way and the door opens into the Riad you are transported into a beautiful paradise. The accommodations, service, food and hospitality are fantastic. We stayed in the Suite Yakout which was spacious and luxurious. Beautiful separate bedroom with a chandelier hanging from a domed ceiling. Separate living room with fireplace and traditional Moroccoan furniture made for a pleasurable experience. The food was delicious and when it was served on the rooftop, it added a romantic dimension.
The staff seems to anticipate your every need. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility for them. Anything from getting a simple bus ticket to a major excursion was no problem for Hannah, Kamal and the rest of the staff. One morning we woke up late and at 1145 am the staff had breakfast ready for us. We took the complimentary tour of the medina (the old town which the Riad Kniza is located in). The guide provided by RK was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The excursions to the Atlas mountains was also organized by them and was of high quality. Marrakech is exotic, exciting as well as challenging and coming back to RK every night was like coming home to a palace. Definitely recommend RK to anyone
