Riad Kniza is an amazingly beautiful oasis in the madness of the medina of Marrakesh. The rooms - public & private - are stunningly decorated. The service was wonderful -everyone is very friendly and helpful. And the food at breakfast and dinner was delicious. I highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

We have just returned from a long weekend stay at the Riad Kniza. It was a special birthday celebration and the party consisted of five couples. The hotel was just perfect. Mohamed and his staff could not do enough for us and made our stay exceptional. Our rooms were beautiful, especially our suite the Royal Bahia, it was magnificent. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to stay here.

Just back from a wonderful week in Morocco, first four nights of which we spent at Riad Kniza.

What a wonderful experience, from the shock for my other half of arriving in a market in Marrakech and walking through the market and down an empty alley - I think he thought I'd lost the plot! Then arriving in the Riad to be greeting by the lovely Hannan, and served Mint tea and Moroccan sweets in an antique filled lounge overlooking a tranquil courtyard.

We had dinner the first night on the roof terrace - which was excellent, portion sizes were not overwhelming unlike many other restaurants. I'm vegetarian and catering for me was no problem.

Breakfasts on the terrace were great (my only slight criticism was they could do with bigger coffee jugs - the poor waiters probably wished for that too as we always had to order more.

All the staff were great, helpful with money exchange, booking restaurants and any ad hoc drink or foor requests during the day. Service was constantly on-hand but very unobstrusive - perfect.

We also enjoyed a hammam and massage - be warned its Very Hot, and cooled down in the pool which was immaculately clean.

Room and bathroom were great - bed comfy and plenty of additional bed linen if required. As all rooms are round the courtyard if you are an early sleeper or late riser then some ear plugs wouldn't go amiss - but in terms of external noise from the city its amazingly quiet.

It was a comfortable 20 minute walk to the Koutoubia Mosque through the market. A great location - close to the centre of things but not too close to the night time noise of the square.

All in all the perfect small hotel (and we don't do big hotels) experience . One of our favourite hotel experiences to date, we would not hesitate to recommend.

It is difficult to add to what has already been said about this absolute gem of a place. 5 stars don't adequately describe it! The breakfasts were superb, and the evening meals were worth every penny and more. No menu; they discuss your preferences when you tell them you want to have a meal. If you want something particular or would rather not have something - just ask! The staff , all of them charming were helpful and welcoming. Mint tea, coffee, accompanied by Moroccan pastries,and soft drinks on demand at all hours with a smile and without charge. An oasis of calm in a noisy city not to be missed. We loved it.

I arranged to stay here as a birthday surprise for my wife and what a surprise. The accommodation is sensational, opulent with ornate decoration and the location is ideal being so close to the food markets. It provides a wonderfully tranquil environment, perfect after a day out in the souks.

The service was generally impeccable with our every whim catered for .. mint tea and morroccan delicacies on demand and a fantastic evening meal provided on arrival. The food here was some of the best we tasted in Marrakech. The hammam was good fun too.

Our only minor criticism was that since we stayed in early December the riad seemed to get a little cooler than ideal.

Otherwise a perfect stay and highly recommended.
