The rooftop breakfast at the Riad Kniza was a highlight of the trip. We were able to order our complimentary breakfast at any hour. We had the family room which was such a palace with comfy beds and very quiet for good sleep. The staff kept fruit in our room and a 3 tiered dish filled with Moroccan cookies. The...

For our first visit to Marrakech we followed trip advisor reviews and chose this Riad. Prior to arrival, we emailed them for transport from the airport, and they arranged that and outlined that nothing was too. Much trouble to arrange for us to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The short walk from the taxi to the hotel past...

a fantastic place to be; very friendly staff, superp riad which is located in the middle of the marketplace near Bab Dhoukala. Within walking distance you may reach all the main attractions of the Medina. Many thanks to Mohammad and his staff for allowing to stay in this great place! We will return soon!

If you want to experience a traditional Riad owned and run by a Moroccan family, not by Europeans, this is the place to stay. Riad Kniza is a beautiful oasis not too far from the bustling souks. Accommodation, food, especially breakfast, and staff are all superb, We look forward to returning to see Mohammad and his exceptional Riad.

We can not say enough about the Riad Kniza and especially the staff. All of the staff was so welcoming, friendly, accommodating and helpful, but we want to give a shout out to Selma who was simply amazing. The Riad itself is beautiful, food very good and offers Hamann and massage on site which we enjoyed. Our room was spacious...

Amidst the bustling souks of Marrakech is this quaint mini hotel with a super friendly and authentic staff. The accommodations are so welcoming with a rooftop terrace, refreshing pool, and beautiful courtyard. The food is incredible here and it's just a really incredible experience.

My friend and I stayed here during a girl's weekend to Marrakech. The hotel was stunning and the service was amazing. We felt very well taken care of and the hotel helped us figure out where to eat / visit during our trip. Also, we highly recommend eating breakfast on the rooftop! It was a really lovely experience.

My wife and I came here for a mini moon after our wedding last week. It is just a serene paradise. You go in from the crazy medina and everything is suddenly ok. The place is spotless and nothing is too much trouble for the incredibly professional and friendly staff. I know that hospitality is important in Moroccan culture but...
