Riad Kniza is a small and charming upscale Medina 5 star riad, set in an 18th century restored building, allowing guests a jump into a regal past.

The owners are from a well-known Marrakesh family: the father is a renowned tourist guide with 35 years experience, and many prominent people listed in his agenda. The mother is a successful antique dealer, and is responsible for the perfect interior design of this accommodation in Marrakesh. The son manages the riad.

A top end riad in Marrakech, this riad took my breath away. From the point of pick-up, to the welcoming tea ceremony and the introduction to our suite...this place just ouzes style and ambience. We stayed in the Sultan suite which contained everything you could need, plus more. We had just arrived after a 15 day tour of Morroco so these luxuries were a warm welcome. Traditional Moroccoan dinners on the roof terrace were just superb. The riad is only a short walk to the famous Djema El Fna and other sights in Marrakech. Definitely a highlight of our adventure in Morocco.
