This place is absolutely incredible, but it's almost so Western that much of the Moroccan feel is lost. If you're a fan of rose petals in fountains and aggressively luxurious air conditioning, then this might be the place for you.

Greetings from Riad Kniza, We pride ourselves on offering our guests the most authentic Moroccan experience, both in terms of decor, service and cuisine. We are actually one of the very few high-end Riads in Marrakech which is owned and run by the same Moroccan family for generations, with the owners being renowned antique collectors. And since the comfort of...

We began our Moroccan vacation in Marrakech and we were so glad we stayed at this Riad! After 20 hours of travelling, we arrived at the Riad pretty late in the evening. We were immediately greeted with hot mint tea and pastries while they prepared our room. The son of the owner gave us a quick tour of the Riad...

We stayed at this Riad for my 30th birthday and it was a dream from start to finish. We were greeted with delicious Moroccan mint tea & biscuits upon check in before being shown to our room. The rooms themselves are spectacular. As it's a traditional Riad the layout is quite open plan so if you're a light sleeper like...

For our first time in Marrakech, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff is extremely helpful, food is fantastic and good wine choices. The spa is a must and rooms are over the top. We will certainly be back!

Wow! This place really is he best find in Marrakech. We actually dined in the restaurant but did not stay here - however we would definitely consider staying in the future. Tucked away in the riad, the staff collected us from our taxi and guided us to the restaurant. We were blown away by the beauty of the place which...

A beautiful riad tucked away in a quieter area within the city walls - about a 15-20 minute walk from the medina, which worked great for us. Our room was beautiful and the riad itself is just amazing - a haven of tranquility in bustling Marrakech. I loved the roof terrace! Service was outstanding, the staff couldn't have done more...

With the typical welcoming and warm heart of Moroccans and in the heart of the old Medina, this elegant Riad lies 1 km from Koutoubia Mosque and 2 km from Majorelle Garden. The warm, luxurious rooms feature ornate decor and traditional Moroccan furnishings. All have cable TV, free Wi-Fi and safes; upgraded quarters include fireplaces. Dramatic suites offer sitting areas...

Highly recommend Riad Kniza! Everything is perfect and to your satisfaction - rooms, food, service and staff. Conveniently located on the interior edge of the medina - easy walking to the souks and sights and easy access to taxis for dinner and entertainment in the new city area. We wish we had more days to spend here!
