You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place to stay in Marrakesh. Beautifully decorated, authentic Moroccan riad. The room was so luxurious and we loved the spa area too. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic. Taking breakfast up on the rooftop was an ideal start to the day. Don't miss out on the 5 course... More

We stayed 3 days/2 nights in the most beautiful Riad we have seen during our private guided tour in Morocco. Our very spacious Junior Suite was decorated with antics in traditional Moroccan style without missing any comfort we needed. The food in the restaurant was second to none and our dietary wishes were perfectly looked after by the very friendly... More

Fantastic riad run by a Moroccan family. Great location in the Medina, ideal for visiting key sights, and hidden amongst the busy streets and local life. Everywhere is beautifully furnished and staff are willing to attend to every last detail. Our suite was also beautifully decorated with plenty of space and great bathroom. We shared this with our two adult... More

Marrakech is famous for its riads, and if you stay here you will understand why. Situated close to one of the gates into the medina, it is well placed for accessing both the old town and La Ville Nouvelle on foot. The interior of the building is beautiful, a quiet oasis with a small pool and even smaller library; in... More

There's no denying the architectural delight of this place, it is just wonderful. It is handy for the bus station and there are markets right outside the door, but not the main ones - they are 20-30 minutes walk at least. The food is top class, the room are sumptuous. Live music in the evening. Pool in the shade. Rooftop... More

We were promptly picked up by our private transfer from the airport and taken to Riad Kniza. Our driver was so knowledgeable and advised us of things to do in the local area such as Marjorelle Garden which is a must !!

Absolutely fabulous amenities and beautiful! It was surprising to discover what was behind the unassuming door in the tiny Marrakech alley! A library, water features and wonderful food awaits. Four women shared a suite that was on the top floor and quite spacious.The service was excellent as we were greeted by appetizers and refreshments morning and evening.

Fantastic Marrakech experience. This Riad is ideally situated to get about and visit the Medina and historical sites. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the food delicious. The rooms (we had an upgrade to a suite) are beautifully furnished and clean. Plumbing modern and plenty of hot water. Dining on the terrace a must.

While planning our trip to Marrakech, Riad Kniza made the shortlist because of all the positive reviews. In the end, we decided to stay at a different riad but knew we had to visit and see what everyone was talking about. We decided to go for a late lunch at the restaurant at this riad. We called and made reservations... More
