I loved this hotel and I highly recommend it! The decor was charming and all the rooms have beautiful antiques and are authentically decorated. Also, the service and location was great. If you stay here, definitely eat dinner at the RIad Kniza. Our dinner here was one of my all time favorite meals! It's a must!

I am currently sat on the roof terrace of Riad Kniza admiring the view of the Atlas mountains before I leave in the next hour. You can see why Riad Kniza is top rated and has won Trip Advisor awards.

Travelled to Marrakech with my girlfriend and my parents for a 3 day get-away and could not have been more thrilled. Thought it was a bit mad at first as we were led down a very busy, narrow, market street, really shocking your every sense, but then turned off down a small side street, rounded the corner and there was...

We love Riad Kniza. It's as simple as that. I've been recommending this place to so many people since I've been back. The service is impeccable. Staff are so friendly and very attentive. Location is good, despite the 10-15min walk to the main square, Djemaa el Fna. The Riad itself is beautiful and peaceful (even though being in the centre...

Located a short walk from Bab Doukala, and a 10 minute walk to Jemaa el Fna.

The service at Riad Kniza was excellent. If you ordered a mint tea, meal or any other refreshments it arrived promptly anywhere you wanted it to be served. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The building itself is beautiful. Our room was very nice. We stayed in a Superior Deluxe which had lots of character....

Riad Kniza is very easy to find just inside the walls of Marrakech's old medina, with an excellent location close to most of its top attractions. This five-star palace has welcomed guests including Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt, and is truly the epitome of luxury. The “Hotel de Charme” has been in the family for two centuries, completely...

The Riad Kniza was majestic in itself, within a medina full of surprises. The riad contains quieted enclaves spread throughout the grounds, from ground floor to rooftop. The location was perfect: near a main gate and near Jamma El Fna but firmly within a local neighborhood. The staff were exceptional in every detail, every request, every way to make us...

Upon our 4-day exploration of Marrakech, my partner and I found the site for Riad Kniza when looking for a spa and for cooking places - - all while trying to fill our time in the oppressive Moroccan heat (suggestion - don't visit in August!). Sadly, we hadn't found it when looking for Riads to stay in, but were happy...

Words cannot describe this Riad. The inside is like any ancient palace you will see in Marrakech, opulent yet tasteful. The rooms are gorgeous and clean and well-maintained. The staff is so helpful, it is ridiculous. Mohamed, Kamal, and Samira are all wonderful hosts. In short, this is the best place to stay. It deserves all the accolades it receives.
