Riad Kniza, Marakesh Morocco
No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
A tasteful, privately owned traditional option in a relatively accessible area in the north east corner of the Medina. Stairways are less steep than in other riads in the city and less agile guests may find the handrail a help.
Personal service and attention to detail is the rule and evening meals are served in the authentically designed lounges and small dining room. Roof terrace is particularly inviting with its open sided tents and comfortable sunloungers.
In two sections with a couple of small courtyards located in a flat sided, forbidding corner building. Beige coloured traditional stucco architecture surrounds the upper levels of the main courtyard while pillars and gentle arches offer a more appealing view on the lower level. A roof terrace offers sweeping views across the Medina.
Property type: Hotel
Small alcove like seating areas surround the courtyards with sturdy carved wooden doors giving way to the ground floor accommodation, lounges and dining room.
Drinks are served to guests throughout the interior areas. Fireplaces add style and character to the communal lounges and wide, railed staircases lead up from two corners to the upper levels.
Lush vegetation adds colour and style to the courtyards and lanterns are used to create an authentic feel during the evenings. A small pool has little more than ornamental value, although a Jacuzzi is incorporated.
Wide sofas provide comfortable alfresco seating and there are a few tables for breakfast and summer dining. A large roof terrace in two sections offers a few comfortable sunloungers as well as white, open sided tents.
Area Type: Located at the north east corner of the Medina, surrounded by other similar styled properties, local shops and mosques. The Jemma el Fna, with its host of tourist attractions and nearby souks is just over 600m to the south east and Bab Doukkla, with its market stalls and bus station, is 120m away. Taxis wait by Bab Doukkla, near the bus stop for the airport.
