We stayed here for a weekend as a family of four. The bedroom was beautifully laid out, one floor for the children and the upper floor for us. The food and service were exceptional. The ambience is one of peace and tranquillity. There was a problem with a leaking pipe in our room meaning that we lacked hot water on the last evening. As a result, the owner offered the luxury hammam for our use and did not charge us for what turned out to be a spectacularly delicious three course dinner. My wife and I also got a private tour of the Berber museum which is soon to be extended. The owner, an erudite and fascinating gentleman, was generous with his time and his knowledge. We could not have been better looked after. A stunning riad.

They successfully negotiated La Mamounia’s strict security to pick us up at the front door! Dropped us us off at the nearest vehicle access to to Riad. Greeted and escorted to that Friendly studded front door, to be greeted by the friendliest receptionist. A lovely cup of tea and the features of this stunning Riad carefully explained. A large cosy room with some very good features, a transformer plug socket so any guest can recharge their mobile phone iPad etc using their own plugs at the correct voltage. We were given the most useful guide device so that we could navigate the souks and tiny streets with ease and confidence, it even recommended sites to visit, restaurants to eat in. Owner of this Riad and his son have really tried to think of everything to make our stay a total pleasure. The staff from lovely receptionists, very attentive waiters, and you can see the care they take to make your table look absolutely perfect at each course, the chamber maids had our room spotless at all times and the beautiful folded towels and tasteful use of those stunning rose petals! All friendly and determined to make sure your stay with them, just an exceptionally pleasant experience. Food excellent and perhaps the highlight, the invitation by our host to see the excellent museum that he and his wife have created in the Riad just across the alley. The display of Berber costumes and jewellery even better than in the Majorell gardens and then the display of city costumes and the exceptional modern cloathes and jewellery designed by his daughter. As you may gather this Riad went the ‘extra mile’ in every direction to make our visit just super. The interior of these premises, just down an alley so large, so perfectly layed out and decorated will just blow you away. The attention to detail, design and facilities a wonderful success. Pay them a visit and be pampered and treated in the most friendly way, you will remember your visit with a smile for many years to come.

I can’t even begin to explain the level of customer service at this Riad. They sent a driver for us at the airport and made sure that we were completely pampered during our entire stay. I can’t wait to come back! Thank you for everything from the rides to the breakfast to the handy phone we used to guide us through the streets.

STAY HERE!! I stayed 2 nights at Riad Kniza and absolutely loved it. Could not recommend it more. The staff was accommodating and lovely, the room was amazing, and the food was DELICIOUS. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was the best start to a day of exploring the charmingly chaotic Medina. Be sure to have dinner here one night!
