After being picked up at the airport we were greeted at the Riad Kniza like old friends. Our room was so lovely and so clean with toiletries in the bathroom and roses everywhere. The four day package was excellent value and Samira, Ashraff and all the waiting staff were very helpful and professional.

We recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Riad Kniza having booked one of their excellent 4 day packages. Their motto is for you to treat the place as your own home and we certainly did so-- having breakfast when we wanted to, catnapping on the roof terrace in the afternoon with their resident cat, enjoying the hammam and...

This riad in the Marrakech medina was all we could wish for. Nothing was missing. So much personal attention, starting with being picked up at the airport to tending to our needs. We were made to feel as if this were our home. But such a magnificent home in the Moroccan tradition. Antiques, art work, like a palace hidden behind...

During my stay at the Riad I visited one of the world renowned hotels in Marrakesh (La Mamounia) and it was not a patch on Riad Kniza for value for money, service and authenticity. The Riad is the sort of place where they expect you to ask for whatever you need so that you feel at home, for example I...
