I took my husband, daughters and their partners to the Riad Kniza to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and I have to give myself a pat on the back for finding such a super place to stay! We had 4 nights of superb service, where nothing was too much trouble, excellent value for money and in a very good location.... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 most enjoyable nights at Riad Kniza which is well situated to explore the many places of historical interest in Marrakech, as well as experiencing the bustle and diversity of the Jemma El Fna and learning to haggle in the souks. At the end of a fulfilling but tiring day, it is wonderful to... More

We arrived at Riad Kniza via the bustling market, rang the doorbell, entered and were instantly transported into a peaceful, stylish and truly wonderful space. Even though it was late in the evening we were met by Kamal, the owner's son, whose love of his establishment is apparent - and rightly so. His family has created a gorgeous home and... More

I visited Marrakech with my sister for a long weekend of sightseeing and relaxation. Riad Kniza is a traditional Moroccan place to stay, full of intricate wooden and marble carvings, fantastic furnishings, art work and antiques. There is something to catch the eye around every corner! Kamal and his staff were very welcoming and dedicated to ensuring a perfect stay,... More

My wife and I, along with friends, just returned from Morocco, and spent three nights at Riad Kniza. The riad is beautiful, and the staff is superb. The dining room serves the best meals that we had during our entire time in Morocco. We had dinner at La Mamounia one night, and although the grounds are beautiful, the dinner (tagine... More

Riad Kniza is an outstanding hotel. It is a beautiful house,well sited for sight-seeing, with very comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine. What makes it particularly special though are the staff. They are supremely well-trained, friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Strongly recommended.

Though our flight was three hours late our English-speaking driver awaited our arrival to personally greet us at the airport. Our greeting at the Riad was momentous, Kamal and his staff ready at every call; personable, attentive and willing to please, this was by far our finest traveling experience, beating any of the five stars we’ve stayed. As this was... More

Riad Kniza well deserves its reputation. The interior is beautifully decorated in Moroccan style, and our room (junior suite) was large, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was very solicitous and helpful. An oasis of calm in the bustling medina. A 1/2 day guide, 1/2 hour massage, breakfast, and 25 Euro gift certificate to an affiliated artisan gallery was all included... More
