Fantastic staff - great location

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: Quiet inside. Fantastic, warm welcoming staff. Could not do enough for us.
We had initially arrived in Marakech 4 days before having to check in here. Our original Riad (Riad Bamileke) near Derb Debacci was a nightmare. We had scoured expedia for a deal and stumbled across the wonderful Dar Les Cigones. We booked early on the same day we checked in around 10am and headed over at 2pm to check in. The staff here are so great, we had a warm welcome at the hotel - tea and pastries and were then taken to our room. The hotel supplies a book of recommended locations and restaurants, even excursions and helped whenever we needed a taxi. The room was great and most importantly quiet. No noise from the staff in the early hours and they honestly couldn't do enough for us. My girlfriend had an upset stomach on our second night and the guy on the door downstairs called one of the off duty members of staff to try and source some prunes and figs to help from the souks. 20 minutes later the guy showed up at the door, fruit in hand. Regarding the hotel itself, it's located near the old Jewish quarter, directly opposite Palais Badii. Short walk to the souks and also has a lovely roof top terrace for a warm sunny breakfast. If you've not been to Marakech before, it can be an exhausting experience and having the right hotel/riad to come back to and chill is very important. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone!

Beautiful riad

Posted Dec 8, 2014 on Hotels
A wonderful riad with a friendly staff. The location could have been a little better, as it is quite a walk from the Jama el Fna square. Our suite was absolutely beautiful, silent, and impeccably clean. It was somewhat annoying that some of the staff insisted on addressing us in very broken English instead of French. We had dinner at the riad the day of our arrival as well; it was wonderful and we definitely recommend their food! Breakfast was a little odd; they brought me eight slices of brie (who can eat that much?!) but no bread to eat it with. But delicious otherwise.

Go back in time to a ancient house with every luxu

Posted Oct 30, 2014 on Hotels
Magnificent old house. Individually themed rooms. Rooftop garden & bar with day beds, fountains filled with rosebuds. Fabulous service, peaceful & relaxing away from the noise of Marrakech. Staff ate incredibly friendly & helpful. Only cons are no cold drinking water in rooms & LOTS of stairs (if you have a heart condition like mr)

A perfect oasis of luxury and hospitality

Posted Aug 9, 2014 on Hotels
Stayed at Dar Les Cigognes for two nights in early August and really wished we could have stayed more. On our arrival at the stunningly beautiful road, we were greeted by Pierre and his lovely staff who couldn't have been friendlier or more enthusiastic. Our early flight had got us to the hotel at breakfast-time but our room was ready for us which was wonderful and meant we could get on with our day. Pierre took the time over tea and homemade sweet treats (delicious) to tell us all about Marrakech and helped us design the perfect plan for a couple of days in the city based around what we wanted to do and what he knew would work best - so incredibly helpful and helped us make the most of the time we had. He's also just such a fun character to chat to! The riad and the rooms themselves are beautiful, filled with nice touches such as beautifully presented hommade potions and lotions in the bathroom and fresh fruit to snack on. Breakfast was delicious - go hungry as it's a feast that will last you the day - and served on the flowery and peaceful roof terrace. Can't recommend it enough and will be back no doubt! Than you Pierre! Hywel and Lani.

Cool sophisticated oasis in the heart of Marrakech

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: The room was full of character and comfort. The staff were excellent and the location perfect.
Location: Right beside Bahia Palace with a beautiful view from the terrace of nesting storks. All that is to do in Marrakech.
We stayed 8 nights in Dar Les Cigognes for a relaxed honeymoon. Everything about the place was fantastic from the mint tea and biscuits and rose petals on the bed on arrival to the little box of biscuits as a parting gift. All the staff were warm and welcoming which made our trip very special. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We used their sister Riad's pool quite frequently when we were there and were equally well received. It is an excellent spot to explore the wonders of Marrakech.

Dar Les Cigognes was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The place is gorgeous and the staff was extremely friendly and dedicated to making our stay as great as possible. This is the kind of place where there is attention to detail to any and all aspects of your stay - from the delicious food and personalized service to suggesting sights and great places to eat and shop. The hotel provides a list of recommended addresses that we used to guide our visit and all their recommendations were spot on. I really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It is truly one of the best hotel experiences my family and I have ever had. I can't wait to go back!

Excellent

Posted Dec 17, 2013 on Hotels
Service, lokaliteter og komfort er i top. Uheld med guide blev der straks rådet bod på. Godt køkken, om end morgenmaden lå under det øvrige niveau. Fin hammam. God placering ved kongepaladset i udkanten medinaen . Dvs mulighed for taxa til døren
