Riad Kniza is located in the heart of the medina – guests actually walk through the market and down a quiet lane to reach this family-owned boutique property. In fact, Riad Kniza is a former residence and it truly does feel intimate and comfortable, like staying at the home of good Moroccan friends.
The décor is traditional but modern amenities like flat-screen televisions and wi-fi access have been carefully added to ensure the guests’ comfort. The spa is small but beautifully appointed, with a hammam, treatment room and outdoor heated courtyard pool. Riad Kniza has been in the same family for several hundred years, so consistency of service is virtually assured and the staff is extremely helpful. They are especially adept at accommodating special interests – for example, a private cooking class can instantly be arranged to suit the guest’s personal tastes and culinary interests.
