My mother and I had a wonderful stay at Dar les Cigognes. The experience was luxurious and relaxing from beginning to end - from the airport pickup and patisseries and mint tea offered on arrival at the hotel to our last moment - we didn't want to leave. The entire stay was relaxing and worry-free, facilitated by staff and management who were incredibly helpful in booking dinners and excursions and offering suggestions on where to go and what to do - especially reassuring for two women travelling alone to a completely new city - as well as the great location. Dar les Cigognes is only a short walk away from the medina, yet we felt worlds away from its hustle and bustle and forgot all our worries as soon as we entered the hotel's beautiful courtyard. Definitely would recommend to a friend and hope to stay there again soon.

Thank you for this confortable and nice stay, we'll come back soon! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, confortable, clean. In general a very clean Riad for Marrakesch, quiet and we loved the design: puristic with a touch of traditional arabic details. Absolutely only desadvantage: no pool or showers on the rooftop. Otherwise everything perfect!

Only stayed at this riad for one night at the end of our 4 night break away. Chose dar les cigognes due to the central location. Have to say Christopher and the staff were all very helpfull and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Having stayed at two locations in Marrakech the service we recieved here was second to none. They seemed to go out of their way to make your stay perfect. On the afternoon of departure we ordered 2 sandwiches only to find that there was no chicken left for the sandwich which to us wasn't a problem as we were then going to pick something up from the airport. However within half an hour there was a knock at our door, on which 2 chicken sandwiches were delivered on the house, also recieved a personal apology from the Christopher the owner. One of the staff even travelled with us in a taxi and then walked us to a riad we had booked for dinner that evening, as we didn't have a clue where it was. Things like this made a huge difference to the quality of service we recieved. Christopher was very approachable and full of knowledge and advice about the local area, and seemed to genuinely enjoy chatting to guests making them feel welcome. The riad is in the perfect location for exploring the delights of marrakech, with only a short ten minute walk to jemma el fna square. Would definately recommend staying at dar les cigognes.

Myself and seven friends have just returned from a stay at Dar les Cigognes to celebrate my birthday and I couldn't have wished for anything more special. Christopher Ryan the general mananger had gone out of his way to organise a superb itinary for our 3 night stay. The Riad is so special and welcoming and an oasis awaits through that door in the wall on a dusty street. The suite we occupied was beautifully furnished and the bed huge and comfortable - we could even have a log fire if we wished! We enjoyed our dinner so much on the first night that we decided to dine in again on our last night and we were not disappointed the food is supurb and the birthday cake a special treat!! Breakfast is taken on the roof terrace in the sunshine where you can observe the Storks nesting on the building next door. We also got a bit of sunbathing done on the roof terrace after a morning guided tour of the medina and souks which is highly recommended. Do take a day trip to the Atlas Mountains it is stunning and lunch at the Kasbah in Imlil on the terrace fantastic. I highly recommend Dar les Cigognes to anyone thinking of visiting Marrakech - you will enjoy!!

This is a relatively nice riad in a good location but I cannot recommend. Firstly, it's not good value for money (meals and drinks are significantly overpriced given the quality). It's also very noisy - our room was open to a courtyard rather than a road but (mostly due to the staff) we had to buy earplugs to sleep.

Most importantly, be very wary of giving these guys your credit card details. I made that mistake and found an unauthorised charge of over £1000. Whilst the apology was appreciated they did not offer to reimburse the £100 of overdraft charges their mistake caused me.

this is a real hideaway from the activities of Marrakesh. enjoy the delicious food, the wonderful service and the hammam, where nice ladies treat you very well.
the rooms are exclusively decorated according to varrious themes and all VERY tasteful!
the staff is excellent and really looks after every guest discreetly and individually.
i will come back!
