Riad Kniza is located close to the Bab Doukala in the old historic medina of Marrakech, about 15 minutes walk from the Djemaa El Fna and the city's fabulous souks.
The Moroccan owner, a former guide and antiques dealer, has employed some of the best craftsmen in the country to create a real gem of Moorish architecture. The riad has been in the family for over 200 years.
Eleven tastefully-furnished rooms are well equipped with satellite TV, air conditioning and even Wi-Fi internet access, with laptop rental for wireless connection available on request. The English-speaking staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the Moroccan cuisine available in the riad is justifiably famous.
The riad has a swimming pool and hamman, perfect for relaxing after a day exploring the city.
This is not really a riad for young children, indeed only children over 12 yrs can stay. It is however perfect for couples or friends wanting a quiet, stylish place to escape to in Marrakech.
