While planning our trip to Marrakech, Riad Kniza made the shortlist because of all the positive reviews. In the end, we decided to stay at a different riad but knew we had to visit and see what everyone was talking about. We decided to go for a late lunch at the restaurant at this riad. We called and made reservations... More

My husband and I had the most amazing honeymoon in Marrakech and stayed at Riad Kniza. To this day we are still reminiscing about our beautiful experience at the Riad. First and foremost, the staff are simply amazing, truly gracious. Each and every staff member was extremely friendly, hospitable and kind - they always went above and beyond to make... More

I simply loved Riad Kniza. I found it to be a genuine gem of a place and hope to visit again. Luxurious, well appointed and comfortable ( but historical) rooms set in two attached legacy riads just inside the walls of the Medina of Marrakech. Lovely public spaces, great service and lovely professional staff, nice pool and spa, wonderful art... More

Not going to repeat myself saying how fantastic this riad is. This is my second review of the property. You have to experience it to believe it. Staff, food, cleanliness in a fantastic property and not to mention a good location are to us, essential ingredients to a great visit. But, when it's all done with a smile and nothing... More

Simply fantastic! Highly recommend for so many reasons. Don't hesitate, just book it and enjoy the welcoming, relaxing environment of this Riad. If you visit during the cooler season, the open fires within the lounges are just perfect.

Amazing atmosphere, excelent suites, very nice food, better than top restaurants in Marrakech, excelent service, kind and discreet. It's like a spiritual paradise when you need to rest from de Medina agitation.

We have travelled extensively over the past fifty years but I cannot remember staying in a more delightful place. Step through a fairly anonymous front door into a tranquil environment which is in total contrast to the hustle and bustle of the medina. The pictures show the exquisite décor and attention to detail but overriding this is the seamless, friendly... More

Following recommendation from our hotel to eat at Riad Kniza and having had a brief look over reviews and their website, we didn't hesitate in booking dinner at the restaurant. We were met from our taxi by the Riad and escorted through the busy streets of Marrakech, in no more than 5 minutes we'd arrived at Riad Kniza - a... More

From the moment we were met at the Bab Doukkala Gate to the moment we left we were treated like kings. The Riad was spotlessly clean, with spacious rooms, great food (try the lamb tagine) including breakfast on the roof terrace (served until 2pm!) and the pool a pleasant escape from the heat. Above all else the staff were extremely... More

Riad Kniza is beautifully decorated with lovely tile and exquisite plaster work. There is a lovely courtyard with a beautiful fountain open to the sky, and a beautifully tiled swimming pool that is deligtfully refreshing after a long day in the Medina. We enjoyed a wonderful traditional lamb tagine with a Moroccan salad comprised of 7 different cooked vegetables combined... More
