This was possibly the most beautiful place I stayed in all of Morocco. I can with 3 friends on a tour. I think it would have been better to come with my boyfriend but now I have an excuse to come back. 20 min walk from the square 2 min from the bus station

We stayed over 3 nights and found the Riad Kniza to be perfect for a romantic weekend break. The magnificent building, the exceptional service and the location make this an ideal base to explore the Medina. I can't speak highly enough of the Royal Suite, taking breakfast on the roof terrace or the spa treatments. We particularly enjoyed lazy afternoons...

My partner and my daughter stayed here for 5 nights. Our first stop in morocco direct from Australia. So we were quite jet lagged on arrival. The staff made us mint tea and fed us sweet meats, calmly arranged an excellent guide for mid morning the next day and generally cosseted us. Breakfasts are huge and delicious although included in...

Don't go anywhere else. My partner and I flew in to Marrakech and were met at the airport by a driver, courtesy of Riad Kniva. For both of us it was our first visit to Morocco. Make sure you ask them to arrange for you to be collected from the airport as the driver will take you to the Riad’s...

This hotel was more expensive than other we had looked at in Marrakesh, but they gave us so many perks, it was totally worth it. My friend & I arrived via 2 separate flights and they organized 2 airport pickups at no extra cost. The dinner (included in the price) was the best we had in Morocco. I loved the...

We journeyed to Marrakesh for a birthday weekend and could not have chosen a better place to stay for 3 nights. The riad's location on the edge of the Medina gives good access to the souks and other attractions of the old city as well as being (just about) within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of the new....

We stayed three nights and really enjoyed both the riad itself, the wonderful people that work here, the location and everything else about this Riad. Very comfortable and so beautiful too! You can easily walk to Jamaa el Fna the famous square.

Even though I was traveling with a girlfriend I cannot wait to return with that someone special. The quiet elegance of this riad was a true refuge from the sometimes overwhelming intensity of the medina. Our host, Mohammed, went above and beyond to make our stay extraordinary.

We stayed in Riad Kniza four days an every day was a treat. The staff is simply the best and being good hosts seems to be a natural habit. The Riad is in the old Medina but the new city is also within walking distance. The interior and decorations, paintings and antiques in Riad Kniza are top notch and it...
