“Lovely place to stay in Marrakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I stayed at the Riad Kniza last month. It was nothing short of amazing. The staff was truly top notch -- their service seems to be an authentic extension of who they are. The room and facilities were immaculate with many special touches added. I was also traveling solo, so I read the reviews thoroughly before deciding on a place. The reviews did not disappoint in any way. I was personally looking for a place to rest, and experience the culture. The Riad was the perfect choice for a relaxing get away, and during the day they arranged a guide for me so that I could explore the city and culture. I highly recommend considering that route; it is well worth it. It was a beautiful trip and stay, and I look very forward to returning!

I can recommend Riad Kniza to anyone traveling in Marrakech! The grounds and rooms are immaculate with an old world charm. The daily breakfasts were delicious and served whenever and wherever (in your room, on the rooftop, etc,) we wanted. The staff and the proprietor were friendly and accommodating. They let us keep our room until 9:30pm on our checkout day since our flight was late at night. I'd definitely stay here again!

We had the pleasure to stay in Riad Kniza (it's in name = a real hidden treasure in the middle of it all!) a couple of nights last month.
We had a great time and truly enjoyed hospitality exceeding the 5 stars standard.
Staff always present, smiling and making sure you are always comfortable.
Glad we trusted the fantastic reviews about the Riad!
Keep it up and good luck!

Riad Kniza deserves the highest ratings. My two nights' stay here was the highlight of my Moroccan trip. The staff's attention to detail is incredible, not to mention the absolutely gorgeous interiors that have been well-preserved throughout history. The atmosphere was magical. I would definitely come back to stay here again when I return to Marrakech in the future.

Nestled within the Medina this gem of a boutique hotel delivers everything that you could ask for. We chose it for a double birthday celebration and we were delighted with the menu, service and overall experience.
Many thanks!

I've been to Marrakech many times, and I also visited many Moroccan riads.. Riad Kniza is surely one of the most amazing places out there.

The moment you walk in, you'll be amazed by atmosphere of that place. Quiet, chill, smells like heaven ! If you get there in the evening you might even found a live traditional band playing some amazing arabic-chill-out music near the fountain, it's really hard to describe that atmosphere with words.

And everything else is just perfect. The rooms are extremely clean, and decorated with an amazing taste (not some "cliché" rooms like what you can find elsewhere), the pool, the restaurent, the two rooftops !

And what to say about the food... you have to taste it and just let the staff recommend you what they have the best, it's just incredible (the restaurent is one of the bests in Marrakech).

Well, could talk for hours about the Riad, but I let you discover for yourself... last thing, the pool has underwater music. ;) Enjoy.

My family and I had an awesome stay at Kniza Riad. The rooms are fabulous. The ambiance is amazing, and the service is second to none. We enjoyed our stay so much, we wanted to spend an extra night. Unfortunately, they were booked. We spent the night at La Maison Arabe which was more expensive but the service was not nearly as good or personal as Riad Kniza. We were asked how we could be served everywhere we went within the hotel. They make you feel like royalty. We enjoyed the breakfast very much.

Thanks to Kamal, Mohamed and the entire staff for making our stay a very pleasant one.
