We stayed at the Riad for a long weekend. The Riad is beautiful and the roof terrace is an oasis, a lovely place to spend the day relaxing on a sunbed with a g and t! Hyatt and all the staff are absolutely amazing, kind and very attentive. A wonderful stay and we will be back next year...
Where to start , we wanted a short break away in morocco so we picked a proper Riad for four nights and we we not disappointed. we were picked up from the airport when we landed twenty minutes later we were shown into a fantastic little courtyard inside a beautiful Riad open roof area with lime trees upto the 1st floor landing , complete with fountain and tiling you would expect , old school building mostly original , The lady in charge Hiat was so welcoming , we were seated in the cool of the lower floor area and brought the first of many very tasty mint teas and sweets , she made us very welcome , gave us ideas for the time we had to visit drawn on a map she gave us along with a little booklet of places to shop places to eat and all sorts of helpful things , the on off to the room , we had the suite , awesome lovely big bed with rose petals and sweets laid out, authentic large bath and separate shower and nice sized lounge room , we had quick look around and then up to the roof garden area ,large potted plants cactus, fruit and flower shrubs everywhere, lovely views out over the city and the royal palace walls with the Atlas mountains in the distance , sun setting over the city , we ate at the hotel our first night , great food , they run a cookery school and restaurant at the hotel so its going to be good and it was , the chap who is incharge of the roof area is great very friendly and always ready to get you any thing you need , all the staff where so helpful and friendly , good nights sleep and a awesome breakfast in the morning sun again up on the roof, off out on our tours and shopping in the souks but so nice to return worn out to our little oasis in the city away from the frantic bustling city traffic and crowds, just what you needed , up for another mint tea ! and relax in the massive bath , the staff would order a taxi if needed and made sure you and the driver knew how much the trip was going to cost before!!! you leave , much better rate than if you do it you self . i you want the real Marrakech experience but want a bit of luxury to this is the place
I visited this wonderful Riad together with 4 friends of mine and we had an amazing time! I wanted to stay in the Medina for a typical 'Moroccan vibe'. One of the reasons we choose this Riad is because the taxi driver can drop you off right in front of the entrance. For us, 5 girls visiting Marrakech for the first time, that was very convenient. But probably what I loved most about this Riad is the warm and very friendly staff. Hajar, Hajiba and the rest of the staff are so lovely and kind! They remembered all of our names from day 1 and every time we came back to the Riad from a day trip we received a personal warm welcome. It truly felt like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend this Riad to everyone!
The Riad is beautiful, each room has it's own character and the roof terrace is lovely covered with plants, a few tables and sun loungers. The downstairs courtyard is very peaceful, tea, oranges and biscuits are served there every afternoon. I think the staff made our trip, they were charming, so kind and caring and always willing to help. Thank you Hyatt! I would really recommend Dar Les Cigognes.
I planned my engagement this weekend on a visit from U.K. - we found the hotel so traditional in style and very comfortable. A lovely classic Moroccan hotel right in hear of city. Hajiba was brilliant, she helped me in secret organize a dinner and arranged belly dancers for us at a restaurant so I could surprise my girlfriend with engagement, went out of her way to help just so awesome. She was a very helpful warm lady who loved making the guests feel at home. Great breakfasts on the hotel roof terrace - massive bath and spacious rooms.
We stayed at Dar Les Cigognes for a week. It was such a wonderful experience. The Riad is quintessential Marrakech. Every single corner is absolutely gorgeous. There are several different rooms and nooks to have a quiet time or read. The rooms are gorgeous, the hotel only has 11 rooms, so it is not crowded. The service is A+, they are always ready to help with anything you need. The rooms had fresh flowers and fruit every day. The rooms are made twice a day, in the evening, they tidy up the room, bring in fresh towels if needed and Moroccan sweets. When I go back to Marrakech I will definitely be staying at this riad.
I cannot say enough good things about Dar Les Cigognes. From the exquisite Moroccan riad style to the peacefulness of the place, it's easy to want to stay inside its walls! The cooking class is a must, and if it's available, I'd advise you to go on the market tour with Pierre. The ladies at reception are so friendly and helpful, and you will really enjoy breakfast on the terrace with a view of the cigognes!
Imagine you have been befriended by a Marrakech spice merchant - sometime back in the 19th century - who invites you to stay in his beautiful home. Dar les Cigognes, in the heart of the old town, has been modernised so discreetly that you feel you have stepped back in time. It's exquisitely tasteful in every detail, with wonderful Moroccan food, charmingly friendly staff, a brilliant hammam and massage service, a library stocked with the best coffee table books about the country - all an easy walk from the city's most famous attractions. A gem.
We have stayed twice on a good offer deal for 1 and 2 nights as part of a full week stay in marrakech. Dar les cigognes has really nice rooms and a luxery feeling. We tried their spa which is really nice but also a bit pricy compared to local rates. Same we feel goes with breakfast, food etc. So for us great for sleepover for a few night, but as we work from morning till late when in marrakech, other riads would bring us better value for money, but to finish a week in the souks, really nice. please note is close to a larger steet so you cannot avoid to hear the traffic.
A delightful experience and enchanting hotel. Open central courtyard and a lovely rooftop garden. We enjoyed breakfasts on the rooftop and a dinner in the private dinning room. There are plenty of breakaway alcoves to tuck yourself away with a book. Located in the old city - it was an easy base to enjoy everything Marrakech has to offer.
