This is perhaps the best small hotel in the world. Why? So many beautiful hotels...so many good ones....why is this one better? BECAUSE THIS ONE DOESN'T NICKLE AND DIME YOU! This one makes you feel like you're at the mansion of a close friend.
Every hotel claims that they do this, but only Riad Kniza has accomplished it for me. They do it by charging one price, high end but reasonable for what you get, and then taking care of you. If you're thirsty, they give you a soft drink. There's no $3 charge for your soda. You pay for liquor of course.
My husband got stuck between meals one day; They sent up some lovely bread and olives. No ridiculous charge appeared on our bill. It was done out of TRUE HOSPITALITY. This is, after all, "the hospitality industry". The place is gorgeous, the restaurant is one of the best in Morocco, but it's all about hospitality.
Do you know what we did with all the soda money they saved us....we gave it to the hotel in the form of tips to their wonderful staff, at the end of our stay. And we loved the quiet little ladies who took our clothes and brought them back washed. It was a pleasure to tip them too. Usually I resent all the tipping, so this really means something coming from me.
I've been meaning to write this review for a while now, so I hope it's still relevant. If it is, then choose Riad Kniza and never look back. You have chosen well.
