Riad Kniza is absolutely gorgeous! We were greeted with mint tea and treats during check in before touring the premises. From the various relaxing sitting spaces, to the serene spa pool, to the restaurant and rooftop, this riad is absolutely breathtaking and picturesque. Our room in a junior suite was spacious but cozy with wonderful light flowing in from the...

The riad is gorgeous and the staff is incredibly friendly. We lost an item of luggage from our previous stop and the staff worked to contact our previous hotel and the transfer driver until we eventually found it. The room was beautiful. The style of this riad is modern, yet authentic Moroccan. It's about a 15 min walk from the...

After being dropped off by our driver, the hotel staff/travel company staff were awaiting us. We were in the middle of a busy intersection with motorcycles whizzing by, cars and scooters parked everywhere, and the smell of hanging raw meat, something being smoked, spices and bread! Quite a combination of smells. We walked down an ally, with vendors on each...

We stayed here for just one night on our way back from the desert and we seriously considered extending our trip just because this is one of the most beautiful hotels we've ever stayed in. Beautiful and authentic Moroccan interior architectural details, impeccable service, and an amazing restaurant. I can't recommend staying here enough if you are coming to Marrakech....

I stayed here with my boyfriend for just one night earlier in the week. It was our first place upon arriving in Morocco. The staff were so hospitable, helping any way they could.

We had the most enjoyable stay here - the bedrooms, the shared areas and furnishings are beautiful, the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Although the hotel is near bustling streets, it is an extremely quiet haven. The roof terrace is spacious and offers a great view of the rooftops and of the atlas mountains. Location...

I would highly recommend this Riad, family owned hotel, Beautiful, traditional Moroccan spotlessly clean with a wonderful roof terrace, located in the heart of the real back streets of Marrekesch we loved its location, everything is walkable if you don't mind negotiating the narrow winding streets. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, the rooms were lovely with every comfort and...

We stared here and really enjoyed it. We had a lovely room with a fireplace, which they lit every night for us. It is really well placed and the cooking is good. We took a morning cookery course there, which was well worth it. At the end of the day, if it's good enough for Brad Pitt....... Tip: the hotel...

First visit to Marrakech, wasn't sure about where to stay (and what was safe). Here is a quick review for your visit to Old Town. STAFF: the staff was extremely accommodating - professional, helpful and there is no negative critique whatsoever. LOCATION: it is in Old Town - you will be surrounded by the authentic city. There is a small...

We wanted to find a special location to celebrate my wife's birthday and Riad Kniza excelled as our choice. It is a truly beautiful property with classic Morrocan architecture and lovely touches like a rose filled fountain in one of the courtyards, plus private areas on a roof top where you can take breakfast or enjoy the sun with mint...
