Two traditional riads joined into one exquisite boutique hotel – Dar Les Cigognes – that evokes the fantasies of One Thousand and One Nights.

Highlights
Features
Location
  • Riads have been traditionally built quite small thus despite joining two together, Dar Les Cigognes still retains a degree of intimacy with only 11 seductive bedrooms of enticing colours, mosaics and antique furniture.

    The riad’s magical ambience is further aided by a courtyard illuminated by lanterns, Moroccan hammam, lovely roof terrace as well as its location, right in front of the Royal Palace.

    Good to Know

    Dar Les Cigognes is one of the few hotels in the area that can be reached by car right to its door.

    Deluxe rooms (except Silver) and the suite all have open fireplaces.

  • Accommodation

    11 rooms – Deluxe, Superior, and The Orientalist Suite.

    Top rooms – Silver deluxe (four-poster bed and big bath) and Harem (romantic with a big four-poster).

    Prices start from just under £100 a night not including breakfast.

    Eat & Drink

    The menu changes daily according to the best market offerings, and the result is traditional Moroccan flavours mixed with Mediterranean elements.

    The riad has no bar but you enjoy your drink anywhere on the premises.
