Although the city of Marrakech for me had changed dramatically outside of the center after an absence of 25 years, the essence—charm and enchantment—remains. This was in no small part due to Riad Kniza, a Moroccan-owned and run boutique hotel in the Medina near Bab Doukkala. The multilingual staff were warm, efficient, and knowledgeable. Welcomed with a traditional glass of mint tea and sweets, the riad is thoroughly Moroccan in décor and beautifully designed. The rooms are spacious and striking. A private hammam followed by a massage was a perfect ending to a travel-weary day. Breakfast on the roof terrace was a wonderful way to start the day, with the sound of birds chirping. The evening’s menu was discussed and chosen earlier in the day and was always excellent. The “street” a stone’s throw away from the riad was a cook’s delight—exotic spices, beautifully displayed fruit and vegetables, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life away from the throngs of tourists. For an unforgettable stay in one of the world’s most unique cities, chose Riad Kniza for your “home away from home.” You will not be disappointed.
