In Marrakesh, you have a lot of lodging options. The Riad Kniza is pricey for Morocco, but you get very good value, Moroccan hospitality, and a chic, relaxed atmosphere. The Riad is well-placed for walks in old city and walks in the new town. What we appreciated was the well-kept public areas, great plunge pool, ability to have meals on...

We have just returned from a lovely anniversary weekend staying at the riad kniza. The staff could not have been more helpful or lovely ensuring that we had a special weekend. We arranged some excursions and a cooking lesson with The raid before we arrived and everything was organised to perfection. The cooking lesson was fantastic and all the food...

This is a special find in Marrakech. We stayed here based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews of other guests and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful, peaceful and tasteful Riad within the Medina. We would come back in a heart beat if we were to return to Marrakech. If you are interested in being in the thick of...

We chose this beautiful Riad for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and we could not have chosen anywhere in the world better than this. The staff are the most kindest, likeable, honest and genuine people we have ever met...every single one of them could not do enough. I re-read some of the reviews today after getting back from our trip away...

My husband and I are just home from a wonderful stay in this beautiful Riad in Marrakech to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. When we arrived we had no idea where we were going, down alleyways following the man carrying our luggage! The door opens and you enter into this wonderful cool oasis. Words can not express how lovely the...

My family had the good fortune to spend 3 nights in the Riad Kniza in mid June. This property, which has been in the family for 8 generations, is pretty much flat out perfect. The rooms are beautiful. The riad is stunning. The service is remarkably gracious, friendly, unpretentious and welcoming. Kamal, the general manager and the owner's grandson, is...

Stayed at this riad for 4 nights, not consecutive, but every time we arrived, the staff got friendlier. Very clean. First time staying in a riad and it has been a great experience. Would recommend it. Good break from chain hotels.

This was our first visit to Marrakech and Morocco. We booked the four night package at this Riad, and it was better than perfect. Every detail of our stay was carefully planned and executed by the Riad. It is difficult to describe the beauty of the Riad Kniza, my husband and I were speechless when we arrived. The Riad is...

The place is wonderful, as reviews atest. But I think the real proof is how a staff addresses minor inconveniences. Our first suite, though lovely, was a bit noisy for me. We were moved without a fuss. Our meals were top quality, and breakfast in the luxurious parlor or our own room, at our convenience. We enjoyed a hammam as...
