An Authentic Riad Experience
Shaun M

Nicely located in the medina near the bab doukala gate so easy to find after excursions into the city. A wonderful riad with friendly personal. The property is in exellent condition just like in the photos.Sara at the reception is a real asset to the riad.We had a wonderful stay,and would book this hotel again ! I would recommend asking for an upper floor room,as the downstairs is quite noisy although the room had a romantic decor.

First Time Visitor

Unbelievably friendly staff. Everyone from Manager to Waiting Staff and Cleaners took great care of us as first timers to Marrakech. The entire ambience of Riad Kniza has an authentic family feeling as soon as you are literally welcomed (not signed in) through the door until you finally sadly, say goodbye and that's what you get in Riad Kniza as opposed to a multiple Hilton-esque environment.
Proper Riads are based on the old Roman villa style square with one central atrium open to the sky (heat rises) where there maybe four of five floors each with one suite (bedroom, bathroom, sitting room) on each side. There are few windows (historical reasons) but with no windows brings peace and silence never experienced before. Great for sleeping and that's kinda the point :)
When we left after three nights we felt and still feel like part of the Kniza family. A hospitality lesson to everyone who wants repeat business and recommendations.

A beautiful oasis of peace in a super-lively city

This is one of the most elegant and charming places I have stayed. The hotel is just inside the Medina, the true centre of Marrakech. A step outside takes you to the bustle of street stalls selling live chickens, side by side with bakeries and leather workshops. It feels like travelling back in time, as well as across miles. But inside the hotel, the contrast couldn't be greater. The plain outside of the building gives no clues to the spectacular interior. There is a central courtyard containing a fountain, filled with rose petals. There are exquisite fabrics, beautiful tiles, an amazing swimming pool. And yet, the most memorable and my favourite aspect of the Riad Kniza, is the friendly and helpful staff. Nothing is too much trouble, they are always smiling and willing to arrange whatever you need. I loved it!
