We have just returned from 4 nights at the Riad Kniza, a treat for my husband's birthday. A colleague had recommended it and I have to say, it lived up to the wonderful review he gave. We arrived in the daytime, having had a driver pick us up from the airport (arranged by the Riad) -be aware that cars cannot get to the front door and that you are dropped off in the middle of a bustling, noisy market ... however you are quickly picked up by one of the staff and you are taken down a small dark alleyway and into the Riad. Once inside, if feels as though you are in another world - quiet, calm, serene and beautiful. This is a magical place, the staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the Yakout suite which was stunning - comfortable lounges and an open fire (which we needed on our first night). The bed was supremely comfortable, and having wireless internet in the room was an added bonus. We ate in the Riad on the first night and the food was delicious, and every morning we had breakfast on the sunny roof terrace. We had two tours included in the package, a guided trip round the city and a day in the Atlas mountains - both guides were knowledgable and friendly (and one of them even lent us some cash when we ran short!!) We also had a hammam and massage which were excellent. The location is perfect for the souks and the square - both easy walking distance, and you soon get your bearings. This was our first trip to Marrakech - and the Riad Kniza made it incredibly special. The awards are well deserved, thanks to all at the Riad for making this a memorable trip.
