From the minute you pass through the large wooden door you are enveloped in an oasis of calm in a noisy and vibrant city. This is an extraordinary place and one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. The staff are welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. So helpful and accomodating. The rooms, the food, the service. Wow. Just...

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...

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...

We have just returned from our 1st visit to Marrakech where we stayed for 4 nights in Riad Kniza. We were delighted with every aspect of this Riad.

My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous five-night stay at the Riad Kniza in Marrakech, the success of which was due in no small way to some expert advice and guidance from Kemal the manager, and to the kindness and care of his wonderful staff. As first time visitors to Morocco the hundred paces from the car...

What a fabulous experience! Riad Kniza is a most special place. The general ambience is one of lovely tranquility, the rooms are spacious and cozy with the perfect blend of "old and new" and the service is impeccable. Never have we experienced such wonderful people, especially Mohamed, whose warmth and charm made us feel like "family". Our dinner was beyond...

We stayed for three nights at Riad Kniza in January 2010. Riad Kniza was a delight, hidden away in the midst of the medina, an oasis of calm and tranquility. The welcome and the service given by everyone was perfect and could not be faulted. The suite we stayed in was lovely and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed the real...

Fabulous riad. It was like being the guests of a wealthy moroccan family! The rooms are lovely. Clean, well furnished and welcoming. The food was some of the best in Marrakech. The service outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. Ask for Mustapha to be your guide, he's well informed, doesn't push shops onto you and he has a great sense...
