Dar Les Cigognes – A luxurious boutique hotel of unique charm, Refined elegance in the heart of historic Marrakech
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 our 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 our riad, making it a true boutique hotel, and ensuring that you will have one of the more private and individual experiences in Marrakech. Our goal is to provide the comfort and ease of home, with great service.
This award-winning Marrakech hotel offers its guests a wide range of services and features:
- 11 guest rooms and suites
- Restaurant serving a daily-changing range of freshly prepared local dishes
- Spa, massage, and beauty treatments
- Traditonal Moroccan Hammam and Jacuzzi
- Boutique of carefully selected and made-for-us local handicrafts
- Gorgeous roof gardens overlooking the Palace ramparts
- A concierge team dedicated to your comfort
- 24 hour reception
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 décor. 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.
Marrakech is a playground for the senses

The golf courses are world-renowned. With preferential access to many of the local golf courses, and the very best just 5 to 10 minutes away, make Dar Les Cigognes the base for a golf holiday. With easy street access, you have the best of both worlds – making it easy to come and go by car to the links, but also in the cultural heart of Marrakech’s ancient medina.
The mountains are also only 45 minutes away and offer incredible and breathtaking opportunities for trekking or for just a day trip, with a lunch spent in a mountain aerie. Watching the sun rise over the desert at dawn is an experience you will likely never forget. Skiing at the nearby station of Ouakaimden is a site to behold, where many of the locals ski in their djellabas.
Marrakech has become a shopper’s paradise. While the souks are filled with a great variety of handicrafts and wonderful gifts, carpets, etc, there are an increasing number of craftsmen and artists working to produce items that would not look out of place in the grandest home or the most fashionable wardrobe. Let us share with you our secret addresses.
The dining scene is increasingly cosmopolitan, with a great number of excellent French and Italian restaurants to complement the many Moroccan restaurants which offer everything from street food to the most opulent dining straight out of 1,001 Arabian Nights.
There is no shortage of things to do and places to see; Marrakech is a playground for the senses!
