An 18th-century, five-star family-run riad and long-term award-winner in the medina - with breakfast, arrival transfer and massage included

You can expect sugar and spice and all things nice in Morocco’s bustling capital, Marrakech. Head into its heart, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed medina, and you’ll find a magical maze of souks and more than 800 charming riads. Dating from the 18th century, Riad Kniza has been in the owner’s family for more than 200 years and has history and tradition on its side.

Restored by current owner and renowned antique dealer Haj Mohamed Bouskri, the riad's design draws on Bouskri’s day job to recreate an authentic Moroccan experience with the use of traditional materials and artisans. Moorish architecture mixes with Moroccan flavours in richly decorated guest rooms and one of the city’s best restaurants to make this five-star hotel a celebrity favourite.

It has also won the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for many years running, ranking among Marrakechs top 10 hotels on the site. Retire to its intimate salons and atmospheric roof terrace and you’ll be following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and many others.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2.50 per person, per night is to be paid directly at the hotel.


Hotel owner Haj Mohamed Bouskri has completely restored Riad Kniza using only traditional materials and artisans. The result is a decadent mix of luxe fabrics, parquet floors and intricate latticework. Rich golds and reds echo the spices of the nearby souks in the design of the Deluxe rooms and Senior suites here, which are spacious with separate seating areas and en-suite bathrooms.

Follow the likes of Brad Pitt, Will Smith and Tom Cruise to the restaurant here and you’ll find one of Morocco’s most celebrated eateries, holding just nine tables. Intimate salons and an impressive roof terrace provide the perfect backdrop to traditional flavours and fresh ingredients that are served up for dinner or a light lunch. In fact, orders must be placed at least one day before dining here to ensure that each dish is prepared with ingredients bought on the same day.


When you’re not soaking souk-weary muscles in the turquoise swimming pool, you’ll find a hammam, massage room and sauna among the facilities here. Intricate mosaics continue the traditional design, too.


Located in the heart of Marrakech’s old medina, Riad Kniza is within walking distance of the snake charmers of Jemaa el Fna square and the scents of the souks. For a break from tradition, you’ll find Gueliz, the modern quarter of Marrakech, also within easy reach from here, while Marrakech Menara Airport is just a 20-minute drive away.
