Even by Medina standards, Nid des Cigognes is a hidden gem among the private riads in Marrakech. Located on a quiet narrow street just near the busy Mellah (Jewish Quarter), and just a few minutes from the sister property Dar Les Cigognes, this private, four-room house is perfect for those wanting a Marrakech stay with total privacy. In true riad style, the rooms (two larger suites and two smaller ones) are arranged around a gorgeous courtyard. The décor is tasteful and contemporary with modcons like TVs, designer desks and rain showers merge nicely with black marble bathrooms, interesting sculptures, rustic rugs, designer desks and antiques in the rooms. There’s also a large roof terrace and a cinema room to keep you occupied. Nid officially sleeps eight (additional guests can pay extra), which makes it intimate enough yet large enough to maintain privacy. It’s set up to rent in its entirety and comes with a butler/concierge, daily maid service and the option of a chef for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. Guests can also dine at Nid’s sister properties, Riad Kaiss and Dar Les Cigognes if they wish; similarly, you get to use the spa at Dar les Cigognes (just around the corner) free of charge too.
