Don't usually do reviews but this hotel took us in last minute after another was closed and treated us extremely well. The place is beautiful and spacious and the pool is brilliant for cooling you down in heat, whilst the air con in the rooms make it easy to sleep at night.

Our only regret about our stay at Riad Kniza was only booking one night! This Marrakesh oasis was absolutely top notch. We received an lovely upgraded suite to celebrate our honeymoon. I will never forget the fountain filled with roses in the foyer, the delightful smell and atmosphere make you instantly calm. We decided to have dinner at the Riad... More

We stayed at the Kniza for 4 nights. The room was spacious and well appointed. Service throughout the stay was excellent. We had dinners in the Riad twice and the food was superb. It's a real oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.

Definitely one the best riads in the old town. Personally I think the best way to experience the Moroccan culture is to stay in a riad such as kniza riad in the old town. Kniza riad is built in the 18th century and owned by a prominent family. You can see the astonishing decoration and embellishment in every room of... More

Riad Kniza is a spectacular place to stay. The service is first class and the rooms and food amazing. It's located not quite in the center of the old city and this is a plus. Getting to the main square and the souks area is a short and enjoyable walk but the neighborhood is a little less touristy than the... More

A beautiful riad hidden away amongst the chaos of Marrakech! Rooms were stunning, service was amazing and food was also amazing. It was my stepdaughter's birthday out there and the hotel arranged a lovely cake at our request with no charge. The grounds are so beautiful and calming, the perfect place to relax. A special mention to Amin who always... More

We had the pleasure of spending our honeymoon at Road Kniza and it was certainly one of the highlights of our stay. The Royal Suite was fantastic, the rooftop terrace was immense and the staff were brilliant. Amine and his team always went the extra mile to make our stay special. Some hotels are not as good as you expect... More

Riad Kniza is an amazing place located in the northern end of the Medina, a bit far but still within walking distance from the souk and Jemaa El Fnaa market square. On the other hand, Jardin Majorelle (definitely worth the visit) is just a 15-20 min stroll away. We were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the hotel staff (and generally... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this riad just after New Year and we were blown away by how wonderful the place and the staff were. We were welcomed with Moroccan sweets and mint tea in a reception room as we checked in. Our room, as well as the pool and living rooms of the hotel, were opulent and luxurious... More

We stayed at some beautiful places during our two weeks in Morocco but this was hands down the best upscale great value. The facilities are immaculate and beautiful, the food is some of the best we had in country and the service impeccable. Definitely worth every dollar. Kudos to all at the Kniza.
