We spent 3 wonderful days at the Riad Kniza in a lovely 2-level suite with our family. Prior to arrival, the staff helped us with arranging taxi transfers as well as multiple restaurant reservations. Our arrival and check-in was smooth -- we were met at the taxi stand and accompanied by a member of the staff to the riad. Throughout...

As we've walked along the alleys in the souq following the google map to reach the place that we've just randomly picked from trip advisor, I must admit I was a bit skeptical. We've reached the address, knocked the door and we were welcomed into a different world. I've been to Marrakech many times before, but after this experience I...

The riad is really like in all those pictures...apart from heaters, that were never installed. The room is beautiful and spacious, and has a chimney which needs to be used at all times (we went at the end of november) if you want to reach 20C in the room. Unfortunately, the staff in the hotel isn't managed in a way...

From the moment they picked us up from the airport, the service was impeccable. We were upgraded to the suites which were unbelievable - pure luxury. The location was so central and the staff were beyond helpful. They could not do enough for us and were more than happy to make our stay pleasurable. Honestly, it felt like the staff...

From first contact through to checkout, the experience with Riad Kniza was just outstanding. Customer focused, nothing was too much trouble, and the quality of accommodation and food was superb. This isn't a cheap option in Marrakesh but it must be one of the very best. The real stars of this beautiful place are the staff. Always helpful and friendly....

I had high expectations based on the TA reviews. The place is beautiful and they very kindly upgraded us to a suite since it is off season. Unfortunately, we must have stayed there on an off night. Service was anything but amazing. When we returned for the evening we asked for a wine key. The front desk said a waiter...

Riad Kniza is absolutely gorgeous! We were greeted with mint tea and treats during check in before touring the premises. From the various relaxing sitting spaces, to the serene spa pool, to the restaurant and rooftop, this riad is absolutely breathtaking and picturesque. Our room in a junior suite was spacious but cozy with wonderful light flowing in from the...

The riad is gorgeous and the staff is incredibly friendly. We lost an item of luggage from our previous stop and the staff worked to contact our previous hotel and the transfer driver until we eventually found it. The room was beautiful. The style of this riad is modern, yet authentic Moroccan. It's about a 15 min walk from the...
