We staryed in Jan 2012 and couldnt have picked a more fantastic Riad. The luxury of the rooms and the helpful and friendly staff made it an unforgettable holiday. Breakfast on the roof terrace is a must as is the evening meal in the dining room which is reminiscent of something out of Arabian nights. We stayed in the Kenzo... More

My wife and I have been fortunate to travel all over the world and stay in many forms of accommodation. This easily ranks as the finest in many ways. Ironically I arrived in marrakesh with food poisoning. The staff was beyond kind and helpful, even after I rushed from dinner, even after I got sick in a very messy way,... More

From the moment the beautiful wood door was opened for our entry, our entire stay and experience with Riad Kniza was amazing. We were greeted with warm mint tea and cookies before being shown to our beautiful suite. First impressions are important, and our first impression of our suite was stunning.

We stayed at the Riad Kniza in November of 2011. It was a delightful place and the owner was also the top rated tour guide in Marrakech. He has directed tours for presidents as well as other famous people in Marrakech. Highly recommended place to stay in the old city.

We just returned from a wonderful visit to Marrakech and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend the Riad Kniza. The riad is a beautiful sanctuary from the bustle of the medina, but you still feel that you are surrounded by the culture. The decorations and cuisine is authentic Moroccan, and the service is incomparable to anywhere we’ve stayed around... More

My husband and I stayed at this Riad during our stay in Marrakech in January 2012 and we can definitely recommend it and would go back! The staff is so nice, service oriented and knowledgable. The Riad is beautiful, clean (I'm a bit of a cleanliness freak when it comes to hotel rooms) and traditional. It has all you need... More

My wife and I stayed at the Riad Kniza with another couple in November 2011. I can totally recommend this Riad. It is situated fairly conveniently just inside one of the massive mediaeval gates of the old medina and the Jmaa-el-Fnaa is about 15 minutes' walk away. The riad is (as they usually seem to be) hidden away down a... More
