Northern Africa

Regarded as an Oasis in the Desert of Marrakech, Riad Kniza guarantees a royal stay with generous personal care in its 200-year-old Medina walls. With its easy to find location that is uncommon for the other hotels here, Riad has become the top booking lodge even though its décor is of a small upscale guesthouse of the 18th century, but offering an imperial ambiance to its guests. Further, Riad Kniza is nestled at a walking distance from the very well known tourist attractions in the city. So, for most of the enthusiasts, the hotel acts as a starting point for discovering the city on foot.

The owners of this hotel are famous as they belong to a well-known family – father Haj Mohamed is the most admired tourist guide having more than 30 years of experience and so he is always the choice of the famous VIPs, mother is responsible for the perfect interior design, and the son is the manager here. Expect all here including the staff to speak English and that they are at your service throughout your stay booking restaurants as well as exciting excursions for you.


This boutique hotel is the home of 12 elegantly selected guestrooms as well as suites all of which feature free Wi-Fi, AC, and the true treasures of the Moorish architecture.
