This place was an oasis in the middle of the crowded Medina in Marrakech. The rooms and shared spaces are beautiful, tasteful, and perfectly appointed with antiques and furnishings, as well as the ever present aroma of jasmine throughout. Yet the Riad never feels fussy, and you are comfortable as soon as you get in to this welcoming refuge after... More

Kniza is a small Riad style 11 room hotel located inside the Marrakech Medina. It's location is excellent but the helpful and kind staff gets my five star rating. Our suite was beautiful and spacious, packed with all the amenities you would expect including great WiFi...but what put our visit over the top was the careful attention that went into... More

Everything about this beautiful Riad was exceptional. Lovely, friendly, professional staff, beautiful rooms, lovely pool, roof terrace, lounges and delicious food. A real find, and a very welcome escape from the crazy life in Marrakech!

This is a wonderfully- run, peaceful, classy yet homey small hotel. The staff are so helpful and genuinely kind. We felt well cared for in all respects, such as meals whenever and wherever desired (e.g. breakfast in our room the first morning), cookies and water for our journey after leaving the hotel, and general tips on the area. We had... More

My 5 yr old daughter, my mother and myself stayed here July 2016. From the second we walked through the doors at the Riad Kniza we knew our stay would be nothing but amazing. After we checked in we were shown to our room. We were very happy with the size and decor and couldn't have asked for a better... More

I was strongly recommended by a friend to stay at this riad and it absolutely did not disappoint. Upon first booking, I was quickly contacted by staff regarding transportation from airport. We were met by a wonderful staff member to show us our way from where the car dropped us off. The area surrounding the riad is not very aesthetically... More

We booked a 1 night stay in a superior double room and have to say Riad Kniza was just perfect and nothing we would have changed! Although we booked the cheapest room, we were amazed at how spacious the room was. From the traditional Moroccan styled chandelier, to the rose petals on the bed and bathroom to the bottom of...

This is absolutely breathtaking, I challenge all to find a place more peaceful the staff more helpful and the quality anywhere close. They couldn't do enough for us, I have never been anywhere which comes close. In the middle of the souk it is a haven of peace, unprepossessing from the outside but abject luxury inside.
