Riad Kniza

A hidden sanctuary with traditional Moroccan flair

In the heart of the old medina in the city of Marrakech, hidden in the winding alleyways sit the intricately restored 18th century Riad Kniza.  Beautifully decorated the Riad Kniza oozes Moroccan authenticity.  With only 11 rooms and suites, its homely style and warm service will ensure you're stay is more than comfortable.

Explore the city and its cultural hotspots. The famous Jema l'Fina Square, enticing souks and monuments are only a few minutes walk away and the new modern city is just a short distance too. After a day of exploring the old and new retreating Riad Kniza offers exquisite gastronomy in a stunning location, either under the stars on the roof terrace, or surrounded by Moroccan antiques.  The pool, hammam and spa are ideal for refreshment and rejuvination before your next exploration.

Lovely Riad.

Key West, Florida

My wife and I stayed here one night. Would have stayed longer, but no availability. Great location just inside Bab Doukkala, short walk to the heart of the Medina and the Jama El f'na square. Rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. We had an excellent dinner at their restaurant the night we stayed. The staff was helpful, and friendly, and always greeted us with a smile. Try to visit their museum across the street from the riad. Well worth it. Also, the driver who drove us from the airport to the riad, Ali, was fabulous. We enjoyed riding with him so much that we had him drive us to Essaouira and back to Marrakech. Safe driver, clean car, great tips about Morocco. Highly recommend this riad, and Ali.

Beautiful riad, excellent staff, great location

New York

The experience was unbeatable. The location is just inside the walls of the medina so an excellent location for exploring inside the medina and walking out to the modern city. The riad itself was amazing. A former home, it retains the authentic old Moroccan layout, charm and beauty. Our room was very large with a modern bathroom and an A/C, heating unit. They also have an indoor pool and roof top decks for relaxing with drinks.The staff was very warm and the service couldn't have been better. Everyone was anxious to please including the owner Mohammad, who was always present, making sure we were happy.
