This perfectly located 18th-century riad has been in the Bouskri family for almost 200 years and offers the complete package of traditional architecture, authentic furnishings, exquisite cuisine and, above all, overwhelmingly hospitable service. The owner, Mohamed Bouskri, having been a guide for the rich and famous for 34 years (Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, former US presidents and others) is a mine of information and is always glad to share his knowledge and passion of Marrakech.

I don’t normally wrote reviews but for this hotel I couldn’t help but write one! Where to even begin. Riad kniza is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in terms of every component. I stayed in Riad kniza from 10th-15th of Sep with my wife and daughter and would 100% come back a thousand times no doubt since I really felt like I was a part of a family and really felt at home with all the staff who worked there. Their hospitality is beyond comparison to any other hotel I’ve stayed at. All the staff were absolutely amazing special mentions to Loubna, bo jumaa, Sara, Salma, Kamal and the manager and many other staff that I don’t recall their names but every single one of them is amazing. They even gave me another room to use for the day since my flight had a late time after the checkout time. CANNOT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH! TRULY! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. When you leave you feel like you left your own family behind! Looking forwards to seeing you all again soon!

There are obviously hundreds of riads in Marrakech, and it's not easy to choose. Riad Kniza has several inbuilt advantages - excellent decor (opulent without being too much), a sauna, a great pool and terrace, and an attached museum - but where it really stood out was as a base for a holiday in Morocco during COVID. The front of house staff were excellent, very communicative before we came and able to arrange whatever we needed - including a PCR test for our return flight.

Wonderful property just into the Medina near the New City. Impeccably decorated and spotlessly clean. No rush, no crowds; just peace and quiet. The staff could not possibly be more accommodating and helpful.

Riad Kniza is an outstanding Riad in the heart of the Marrakech Medina. Run by Haj Mohammed and his son, the Riad is fantastically designed and hosted by exceptionally welcoming and kind staff. Room was perfect (w/ working ac), breakfast was great and the Riad truly made the trip to Marrakech special. Don't miss out on a chance to take a tour with Mohammed, who deeply understands Marrakech and conveys his passion for the city with charisma and heart.
