Highly recommend Riad Kniza! Everything is perfect and to your satisfaction - rooms, food, service and staff. Conveniently located on the interior edge of the medina - easy walking to the souks and sights and easy access to taxis for dinner and entertainment in the new city area. We wish we had more days to spend here!

We had an amazing time staying at this luxurious riad in Marrakech. The riad is so beautifully decorated it will take your breath away. The staff was amazing and so helpful. The owner made us feel so at home and welcome. We really felt like we were staying in a home. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. It was a...

Sadly I was only able to stay one night in this incredible Riad! The rooms are large, luxurious and comfortable. The dinner served was excellent and the staff was very helpful. A bonus was the Art Gallery opening next door. It had interesting items to see and some lovely and reasonably priced things, like carpets and handbags, to purchase.

Outstanding Riad located in the Medina! Sumptuous accommodations that has been meticulously restored with the vision of the owner Muhammad and his family.

We travel a lot and have experienced many hotels, but the service in the Riad Kniza is unparalleled! The ladies in reception (Samira & Salma) were delightful and they made our entire trip, not just our stay at the Riad Kniza, truly unforgettable. From airport transfers, taxis to the Atlas mountains and back, spa and restaurant bookings, nothing was ever...

Truly exceptional hotel in the heart of Marrakech. One of the best Riads. If you want to experience true far eastern culture this luxurious hotel should be one of your top choices (if your budget allows and if they are not fully booked). The service is second to none, the owner Mohammed and friendly staff helped us with an early...

The riad is fabulous. When you arrive there are rose petals artfully placed all over your room and the fountain in the entry way of the riad is full of roses. They are so helpful and accommodating at the front desk. If you go to Marrakesh stay at Riad Kniza. It is also very well priced for a luxury property

I would thoroughly recommend staying here. It was our first visit to Marrakech and we were so glad to have stayed here. It puts you right in the heart of the action. The main parts of the medina are within an easy 10-15 mins walk. There are plenty of restaurants within 5-10 mins walk. Having said that once you are...

Due to my husband having to go through gruelling treatment for cancer towards the end of last year I decided to treat us to a week away somewhere completely different and chose Marrakesh and Riad Kniza. We were not disappointed pure luxury and service second to none. We could not fault anything, nothing was too much trouble and everything came...

Overall, best value for the price, service excellent, kitchen magnificent and comparably great bargain, though, might benefit from listing this advantage on the menu. Highly recommended for a stay in Marrakech!
