Staying at Riad Kniza was one of the highlights of our trip to Morocco. From the fountain with rose petals in the courtyard to the amazing decorative tiles, every detail was impeccable. The rooms were spacious, including a sitting area, fireplace and a huge bathroom. We were greeted with cookies and hot tea upon arrival. The breakfasts were beautifully served...

After a long drive through the Atlas Mountains we arrived in Marrakech somewhat tired and wrose for wear, with two of us having a tummy bug for a few days prior. We, two couples, made our way to the Riad that had been booked for us. Arriving at the door, one has no idea what to expect on the inside....

This fantastic hotel is situated in the heart of the Medina. Marrakesh has provided the best holiday and life experiences I have had to date. Of course the location of the Riad was central to the success of my holiday. A very short walk and you are transferred into the heart of a wonderful cultural experience. The hotel staff were...

Relaxed luxury haven surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the medina. Genuinely charming staff who anticipated our needs and provided every comfort and service. We could not have been better cared or catered for. The luxury and comfort of the riad was complemented by the unobtrusive service from the riad staff and the guides they used for our trips....

We were picked up at the airport and greeted by Kamal at the Riad with mint tea in one of the many salons in the Riad. There were 4 of us (many different personalities) and we were all put immediately at ease. The location of the Riad is perfect. It is just inside one of the Medina gates. There was...

If you decide to stay in the Medina (that is, inside the walls of the old city), I recommend this gem of a hotel that provides a peaceful, luxurious oasis that is still close to the action. The moment you check in you're served traditional mint tea with an assortment of bite-sized pastries, and welcomed in the most genuine display...

Amazing riad; pure opulence and indulgence and fantastic staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The stay (booked direct) included airport transfers, a tour and soft drinks during the staff just added to the experience. It is truly a superb place to stay in an excellent location; just inside the medina but also walking distance to the new city....

My Mum and I stayed in the Qamar Room during our wonderful week-long stay at Riad Kniza. We decided to stay there because of all the great reviews on trip advisor, but our main criteria was the fact that Riad Kniza is one of the few riads in Marrakech actually run by Moroccan people. We were amazed by the beautiful...

This was the most wonderful vacation I have experienced in many years and it is all due to the beautiful Riad Kniza and its staff. Upon entering the riad, you are greeted warmly by the host and are given drinks and immediately feel like you have entered a magical garden of delights. The rooms are beautiful, with their moroccan tile,...

My husband and I began our Moroccan trip at Riad Kniza. We spent 4 days being totally pampered at this beautiful riad. Every room and public area is beautifully decorated with stunning fabrics and antiques along with exqusite contemporary and traditional moroccan paintings. Our room was the Junior Suite Loubana. On our arrival it was covered with rose petals. The...
