My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Kniza and would recommend this Riad wholeheartedly.
Our transfer was waiting for us at the airport and we were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown around the property by Kamal, before taking our (first of many) mint tea on the roof terrace.
Having read the positive reviews on this site, and chosen our room (Suite Kenza) via their own website, everything was as good or better than we expected.
All the staff without exception were friendly, very helpful and charming throughout our stay.
Our comlimentary tour of the medina on our first morning was very useful and our guide very knowledgable and good company. A useful orientation of the Souks etc before you go exploring yourself.
We used the new Spa at the Riad and enjoyed an invigorating Hamman - highly recommended.
We dined at the Riad mid afternoon (on the roof terrace) and every dish we tried was freshly prepared and very tasty. Breakfast in our room was also very good.
We dined at Cafe Arabe on our first night - relaxed and fashionable. We also ate in the square at Jamaa al-fna at a barbeque stand to take in the experience at night.
Reservations were made for us at Amanjena (and a transfer arranged for 300 dirham return and was 20 minutes) We had a lovely evening at this hotel and would recommend it if you enjoy fine dining.
We also dined at Dar Moha, a short walk from Riad Kniza. Very friendly staff, enjoyable tasting menu and traditional music by the courtyard pool.
Riad Kniza deserves all the positive reviews because you feel so welcome, the property is immaculate, the location is ideal (a completely different world just outside the alleyway) and it is so tranquil.
Marrakech is a great city, with so much to to interest travellers, and we could not fault Riad Kniza as a perfect place to explore it from.
