We had 3 nights stay at this riad. It was amazing!!!! I wanted to write review sooner but it was so hard to explain how kind they were. At first night, there are small accident that could be much bigger if it weren't for them. We lost our passport and cell phone. We were so panicked, at the same time,...

Riad Kniza is directly located in the Medina in a quite side road. The Riad is absolutely wonderful. We felt directly at home. The Riad has amazing rooms in different sizes, very nice furniture and cosy atmosphere. The stuff is professional and so nice. They want to fulfill each wish. You have to start your day on the Roof top...

The rooftop breakfast at the Riad Kniza was a highlight of the trip. We were able to order our complimentary breakfast at any hour. We had the family room which was such a palace with comfy beds and very quiet for good sleep. The staff kept fruit in our room and a 3 tiered dish filled with Moroccan cookies. The...

a fantastic place to be; very friendly staff, superp riad which is located in the middle of the marketplace near Bab Dhoukala. Within walking distance you may reach all the main attractions of the Medina. Many thanks to Mohammad and his staff for allowing to stay in this great place! We will return soon!

If you want to experience a traditional Riad owned and run by a Moroccan family, not by Europeans, this is the place to stay. Riad Kniza is a beautiful oasis not too far from the bustling souks. Accommodation, food, especially breakfast, and staff are all superb, We look forward to returning to see Mohammad and his exceptional Riad.

We can not say enough about the Riad Kniza and especially the staff. All of the staff was so welcoming, friendly, accommodating and helpful, but we want to give a shout out to Selma who was simply amazing. The Riad itself is beautiful, food very good and offers Hamann and massage on site which we enjoyed. Our room was spacious...

Amidst the bustling souks of Marrakech is this quaint mini hotel with a super friendly and authentic staff. The accommodations are so welcoming with a rooftop terrace, refreshing pool, and beautiful courtyard. The food is incredible here and it's just a really incredible experience.
