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.

Outstanding service at Riad Kniza, Marrakesh

Sunny Isles Beach, Florida

Private, personal and conveniently located in Marrakesh. Outstanding personal service! This was one of the best authentic experiences, and at the same time feels homey and comfortable. Breakfast in the room was a real treat! Excellent staff, great restaurant and Hammam. Do not miss private tour of the owner’s museum across the street! Thanks to all at Riad Kniza!

Cozy and beautiful Riad, excellent service!

New York City, New York

We stayed at Riad Kniza only one night during our last day in Marrakech but we wished we had stayed longer. This boutique hotel is a large restored Riad, super clean and beautifully outfitted with authentic Moroccan decor. Breakfast was included and was delicious. What really stood out was the service, from beginning to end. The hotel staff were proactive in making sure we had the option of a transfer from the airport or train station, transfers back to the airport the next day, directions to our restaurant for dinner, and lighting the fire in our fireplace. The hotel staff is very charming and friendly and do everything with true warmth and a smile. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
