My friends and I had , in every respect, an absolutely wonderful stay at the Kniza. In fact our whole Marrakech experience evolved from the warmth and generosity of spirit of the owners and staff of this welcoming, beautiful, elegant little Riad. We were certainly made to feel special, you had only to ask, and any request was dealt with... More

I recently stayed at the Riad Kniza with friends. It was a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived their care and attention to detail was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, whether they be serving meals, servicing our rooms, or arranging restaurants and transport for us. The Riad is maintained and furnished to a...

In terms of value, authentic, luxury amenities, beautiful pool, quality of food and their warm staff, Riad Kniza is second to none. I have traveled all around the world and this is simple, pure bliss. Mohamed and his son Kamal go the extra mile to ensure your experience is the best. Imeana, the chef, is knowledgeable and personable when teaching... More

This was our second stay in the Riad and it was even better then we remembered. We stayed in the Royal suite which is beautifully laid out and furnished. The only failing is that it desperately needs more natural light. Apart from that the suite was huge, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with free wifi. Breakfasts are huge and served...

Spent 5 days at Riad Kniza Feb 2011. The whole Riad is full of authentic luxury antiques and artifacts. Service is discreet and accommodating. We were upgraded to the "Rose suite" which was vast and beautiful. The food was excellent. It was almost an effort to leave to see the sites. Congratulations to Mohamed Bouskri, owner. Would certainly return.

We selected this Riad on the strength of the reviews on this site and were not at all disappointed. The staff were as attentive as you could wish, obliging, charming and polite, organising restaurant reservations, trips and transportation with efficiency. A quiet haven amongst the hubbub of the medina we particlarly enjoyed the truly enormous breakfasts on the roof terrace.... More

We arrived at the hotel after an unsatisfactory trekking experience, so were hoping to have our spirits revived by Riad Kniza. We were not disappointed! The hotel is perfect in every respect: the food, the accommodation, the service, everything really. The dinner we had in the hotel was quite spectacular, and though not cheap by Moroccan standards cost no more... More

We had the most wonderful time in Riad Kniza during Christmas. We loved the staff who is extremely kind and very helpful. This Riad is a beautiful pearl and quiet spot in the hectic of the Medina. The room was nicely decorated and very tastfull and the breakfast is unbelievable! Especially sitting in the sun on the roof terras..

We stayed at Riad Kniza for 3 nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Having read previous reviews, our expectations were very high, but I'm pleased to report that we weren't disappointed in the slightest. The consistency of great reviews for this place is definitely justified and well-deserved. The airport transfer service was very smooth and without any hitch in... More
