We arrived in the evening and were dropped, hot, tired and wondering what we had got ourselves into, in the midst of the souk Bab Doukla in full chaos. We were led through the clamour down a dark allley to an imposing wooden door. The bell was rung and we were led into an oasis of tranquility. Mohammed and his lovely staff greeted us, showed us around and then offered refreshments in a splendid cool lounge. The Riad has been restored authentically and lovingly and our rooms were beautifully furnished in Moroccan style. The staff are very friendly and attentive and even took time out to lead us through the souk one evening to dine at the Riad Pavillion (which was excellent). We hope to have the good fortune to stay at the Kniza again.
