We spent a week at the Riad Kniza in January 2012. This is a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the heart of the bustling medina. January is low season and for most of the week it felt as though we had the Riad to ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. On arrival we took mint tea followed...

We stayed in Riad Kniza in January and I can not praise this hotel enough. It is hands down the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The food is excellent. We even ate breakfast one day at 11:30am, which you will never be able to do in any hotel. Nothing is to much for the staff. The spa treatments...

Just coming to the end of our 3 night stay at Riad Kniza and really do not want to leave. The building is amazing, the detailing in the cornices and wooden ceilings has to be seen to be believed. Our room, the junior suite Johara, had the most amazing dome above the bed with hand carved plaster work. The staff...

An exotic and architecturally stunning oasis in the ancient medina. Convenient location only steps away from the Bab Doukkala gate. From the moment my husband and I entered this exquisite Riad we surrendered under its spell. The professional staff welcomes you warmly and no request seems to phase them. The elegant large suite with fireplace and divine traditional Moroccan cuisine...

We stayed at this riad in January and the hotel completely met and exceeded all our expectations. The decor was grand yet authentic, the food was the best we had during our trip, and the service was outstanding - friendly, professional and warm. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

One of my favourite holidays ever due to the charm and warmth of the Riad and the fabulous staff. A superb location in the Medina - you honestly wont be dissapointed and you'll find it difficult to get lost too - one straight road to the square!

The riad staff could no do enough to make us welcome. The first evening we had a fantastic dinner with great service. Our room was very clean and beautiful.
