I was very surprised to read previous review to mine. We are just back from 3 nights there and we have nothing but praise for the Riad. Yes it may be a walk to the square - but it isn't far and the area around the Riad is full of locals and colour. Completely safe. The service was excellent; nothing...

We chose this place based on trip advisor and reading about it in a travel magazine. We weren't disappointed at all. The place is amazing, beautiful, the staff is kind and arranged for a tour guide and even a driver to drive us to Fez. We arrived our first night after traveling over 30 hours straight without any sleep and...

My husband and I stayed at Riad Kniza in late March and were impressed with the attention to detail and service. For example, late one night my husband was experiencing severe back pain and we did not have any medication. Riad Kniza sent a staff member to a pharmacy for us and my husband had ibuprofen within 20 minutes. We...

What a gorgeous little slice of paradise in the Medina! Tucked away on a little side street, nice and quiet is this fabulous gem. I was a bit suspect at first when the driver had us hop out of the vehicle with our luggage on a very busy road and started to walk us through these somewhat dirty looking streets...

Riad Kniza is in the north west segment of the Marrakech medina close to Bab Doukkala. the accommodation is luxuriously furnished in traditional Moroccan style and the dinner served in the restaurant was excellent. Though small this Riad lacks nothing in quality or service.

We are enormously grateful to Tripadvisor and the helpful reviews which was the deciding factor in choosing this stunning Riad. The owner takes great pride to ensure we enjoyed and appreciated an attentive and reliable service at all times, and our choice of...

After a very long drive from Erfoud, we were so excited and relieved the moment we stepped into this beautiful haven tucked just inside an alley near Bab Doukkala. The service was top notch: pleasant, professional, and prompt. The riad and our room were very beautifully done and were very clean. We were greeted with rose petals on our beds...

Absolutely beautiful Riad! Set in a quiet location, it is about a 10 minute walk to the main square. The staff are friendly, and efficient. Breakfast on the rooftop was amazing. Hammam was good, but I have had better but good nonetheless. The rooms have been beautiful done..

Describing Riad Kniza, it's easy to run out of superlatives. The riad itself is beautiful, luxurious, spacious, and clean. It's located in the Marrakesh medina, close to the souks if shopping the stalls is part of your plan, and a comfortable walk to the legendary Jemaa el Fna (Marrakesh's central square). Beyond the riad itself are Kamal, the director, who...

Riad kniza is everything you read about in the excellent reviews held here and so much more. It's difficult to describe perfection and a stay at this riad comes close. Service is second to none, the rooms are just beautiful, the sun terrace is great, breakfast, massage wonderful. The trip around the medina gets your bearings but the guide tends...
