"I stayed at Riad Kniza a while back, and the experience was totally faultless! We were on a package through the Riad, and the food on offer was great, including the in room breakfast. Everything else the Riad organised (Airport pick-up, Walking Tour, Hammam, Massage and Atlas mountain visit) were superb. They even arranged a Shisha pipe on the roof terrace for us with no extra cost!"


"The raid is gorgeous and a true haven from the bustle of Marrakech, as beautiful as it is. Our suite seas beautiful, and we were made to feel so welcome by the fantastic staff. It was like a home from home, and the whole atmosphere was calm and relaxing and so interesting at the same time. The restaurant is superb, and the food and wine were really quite amazing. We used the hammam, and it was fantastic. We felt so sad to go and definitely will back. Thanks to Kemal and the team for a wonderful introduction to their wonderful country and city!"


"We stayed here for 5 nights with our two teenage children and all loved it. A wonderful civilised refuge from the buzzing mopeds and busyness of the Medina. The building is beautiful, the staff so kind and helpful - nothing is too much trouble and always with a smile. The roof terrace to die for. We had breakfast up there every day under a glorious canopy, my daughter frequented it regularly to perfect her tan, and it was the perfect place to dry off after a swim in their charming pool, and lovely for an evening drink. After a heavy morning bargaining the kitchen prepared a perfect salad for us for lunch, served with a smile and beautifully presented. We had dinner there twice and it was delicious, by far the best tagine we had in Morocco. If we get the chance, we will be back. Definitely. And incredibly reasonably priced."


"We have just returned from 3 nights at Riad Kniza and can not fault anything, the decoration of the Riad has been completed to the highest standards from the communal spaces, rooms and dining areas (both inside and the outside terraces) and the staff are amongst the best we have met anywhere.
Nothing is too much trouble for the smiling team at the Riad - even the cookery lesson with the ever patient Amina who took us to shop in the souk and tried to teach us to prepare tagines and salads but didn't have much luck with getting our bread to rise to her high standard!
The location is perfect, easy to find and not too far from the centre of the medina but also easy to get to the modern part of the city. It is a real treat to enter the cool calmness of this oasis to be met with mint tea after a busy time sightseeing and haggling in the hot souks.
This trip, with our family, was to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we will never forget the welcome we received at Riad Kniza.
We did visit La Mamounia for drinks and dinner which was lovely but were so glad we chose the Riad option for the personal service and unstuffy atmosphere which made our trip so special. We would not hesitate in recommending this place."


"The free hip Marrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find tgheir way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."
