WONDERFUL STAY IN A “SPECIAL” RIAD What can I add to all those lovely reviews about Riad Kniza, which has already been named the No 1 Riad in Marrakech? Three friends and I spent five enjoyable nights in the Riad, not as clients, but as “guests”... of the Moroccan family, who own it and who supervise everything in the friendliest...

Riad Kniza is a wonderful and amazing place. We spent Easter here and all agreed that it was one of our best family holidays. The owners and staff are so kind, friendly and attentive, and they make every effort to ensure that anything which we might need or want was anticipated in advance. The riad is beautiful and so peaceful,...

We were so impressed with the hospitality and quality of the staff, the rooms, the breakfast, and the attention to detail. Our every need was attended to in the most professional and warm-hearted manner. The location was excellent - we walked every...

This riad was recommended by a friend and I am totally indebted to her. This is the real deal, an oasis of calm, impeccable service, beautiful and carefully chosen interiors and scrumptious food. The walk to and from is a bit of an eye opener but worth it and only a short walk to the main square. They organised trips...

We had a wonderful experience at the Riad Kniza in Marrakesh. The service was friendly and very,very helpful. The private rooms were large, comfortable and elegant. The public rooms and the pool area were comfy, intimate and tastefully decorated. When the weather was sunny,they served us our meals on the roof garden and that was wonderful.

I've recently returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Kniza and felt compelled to write a glowing review after such a great time. I have to say this is one of very few places I've been where the experience of the guest is put ahead of everything else - INCLUDING (and this is the rarity) the owner/manager's own profit....

Having just spent 5 glorious days at the Riad Kniza, we have certainly found our Number One spot in Marrakech. The Riad is a peaceful and elegant oasis, housed in a beautifuly and meticulously restored 18th Century villa, in the midst of the 16th Century-like Medina. The entire interior is a feast for the eyes, as are its accomodations. The...

We loved this place! We spent the first 4 nights of our Morocco trip in this lovely riad in the medina of Marrakech. The downstairs public rooms were cozy and beautifully decorated with stunning architectural details. Intricately carved features, intimate and beautiful lighting. Antiques everywhere you looked. Our suite, number 3, had a king-sized bed, with fireplace, 2 sofas and...

myself and my husband chose to stay here for our honeymoon, and everything was completely amazing. The hotel collected us promptly from the airport and we were welcomed into the hotel with a refreshing mint tea. Rarely does somewhere live up to the photos and the press, but I have to say this place does. Fresh rose petals in the...
