Marrakech is a beautiful city and I'm sure you would see that wherever you stayed but Riad Papillon will make your holiday 100% better than it would be if you didn't stay here. The riad itself is beautiful, from the courtyard plunge pool to the sink in the bathrooms. We stayed in the Rose room and I think it is... More

This is a lovely road, and if we were building a house somewhere where rate temperatures climb to extreme heat, this would be the style. The owners have done a great job creating your home away from home and we had a wonderful stay with our friends - one couple celebrating a 20 year anniversary.

Came here with a large group to celebrate a 20th wedding anniversary. Very nice place, friendly and helpful staff the owner dropped in to say Hello. Would definitely stay there again. Annoyingly TripAdvisor says my comments are not long enough so will not let me post the review so have had to add this sentence

this is my second visit to the riad. First came two years ago, and it is good to see that it is still as wonderful as the last time. Firstly, all transfers to and from airport had been arranged by the riad in advance. We were met at the drop off point at the edge of the medina by the... More

Lots of reviews say how lovely everything is, this is certainly true! What I would like to add, are some of the things that make staying in this particular Riad particularly comforting. We were met on our arrival to the souk by Zouhair, the lovely helpful caretaker of the Riad - he guided us to the door (which could be... More

We stayed at Riad Papillon in Feb 2016. We were lucky and had the Riad almost entirely to ourselves. The pick up and recommended first evening's dinner went smoothly and I was presented with a huge veggie couscous that could have fed four! The Riad is beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. The staff can't do enough for you and the manager... More

A really amazing place to stay with friendly and accommodating staff, a short walk from the souks. Getting to the main market SHOULD take about 10-15 minutes if you walk around the city. If you go through the souks it could take you years - its near enough impossible to navigate! The room was very spacious, and the dinner provided... More

We arrived at the Riad by night to candles lit and the scent of jasmine oil in the air. It is hard to describe just how magical it seemed. There were 8 of us and we had booked the entire Riad out and we all agreed that the moment of entering the Riad was the highlight of the holiday. We... More
