The supremely well located Dar Les Cigognes faces the gates of the Royal Palace in the heart of the historic medina. With most of the major sites just steps from their front door, the bustle of the souks and adjacent Place des Ferblantiers, Dar Les Cigognes is a convenient base for a visit to Marrakech. As one of the very few riad hotels located on a street, Dar Les Cigognes offers guests the additional ease of being able to come and go by car.
For centuries, a discreet door opposite the gates to Marrakech's Royal Palace led to a wealthy merchant's home. Today, behind that door, with the help of celebrity architect Charles Boccara, we have transformed two Riads into the luxury boutique hotel called Dar Les Cigognes. A Riad is a traditional Arab house, traditionally an interior world, which is built around a courtyard with fruit trees and a fountain. A stay at Dar Les Cigognes offers a rare glimpse into a world from 1,001 Nights, with all the comfort and luxury of a modern boutique hotel.
There are just eleven rooms at their riad, making it a true boutique hotel, and ensuring that you will have one of the more private and individual experiences in Marrakech. The goal is to provide the comfort and ease of home, with great service.
Refined elegance and style are the hallmarks of this charming small Marrakech hotel. Dar Les Cigognes offers all the comfort and calm you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel, as well as the chic and charm of Moroccan style and fashion. Each room is unique, drawing on the rich cultural heritage of Moorish art and dcor. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been designed with the highest level of well-being in mind, and friendly and attentive service will make you feel at home.
If you are planning to travel to Morocco, or plan a stay in Marrakech, Dar Les Cigognes offers the comfort and intimacy of a guesthouse with the service and quality of a hotel. For accommodation in Marrakech, look no further than Dar Les Cigognes.

This riad is an oasis to the busy streets and buzz of lively Marrakech. With fountain courtyards and a rooftop terrace of some city views, it is indeed a place of its own.
The staff is incredibly attentive and responsive to your needs. The
cooking class in the Dar les Cigognes kitchen is a must as well as an empty stomach. Although, I didn't have time to go on the market tour with the cooking class. Each room in the riad is a fantasy of its own and worth exploring. Don't forget to schedule a hamman!
Be prepared to budget western hotel prices for your stay at this riad. There is a reason why it's been given so many stars, but it is worth it.
Absolutely beautiful in a fantastic location where you can walk to all the sites and the Medina. Pierre, the proprietor & staff make you feel so welcome. they provided us with assistance and great restaurant suggestions. this is truly a special
place. Highly recommend!
