My friend and I arrived at the Dar Les Cigognes for 7 night stay last week and it was even more beautiful than we had expected! I had emailed the hotel in advance to ask advice about getting from the airport to the Riad they suggested booking a car for ease. As this was our first trip to Marrakech it made total sense as it can be very daunting trying to negotiate a cab, plus you can't get Dirhams until you get to the airport so we breezed past the massive cue of tourist's trying to get cash!
Once we arrived at the Riad we were greeted by the very charming Pierre who gave us loads of fantastic advice which allowed us to plan our week. Once we arrived at our room we were astounded! It was beautiful, clean and beautifully designed. There were a few teething problems with the room after the first night but they were very quickly sorted. We had a Hamam at the hotel which was wonderful, not the cheapest around but nice and easy being in the hotel. Everyday Pierre or one of his colleagues would ask if we needed anything booking and they provided us with bus time tables and advice when bartering, nothing was too much trouble. Although we did book a restaurant through the hotel one night we found this expensive and the food wasnt brilliant. We found it more fun braving the food stalls at the market (Stall no. 31 do the best sausages!)
Overall I couldnt rate this hotel highly enough it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed and the staff are wonderful. I cant wait to go back with my partner for a romantic weekend!
Thanks again Pierre!
