I stayed at the Riad Papillon with a group of friends earlier this month and was worried about the location and living condition of the Riad. However Riad Papillon surpassed all my expectations. It's tucked away from all the noise of the souq but just walking distance to the square, souq and dar Al bacha. Zuhair ( the gentleman managing... More

We stayed here last year and truly couldn't have had a more wonderful time. Tucked away through winding roads in the medina, the riad itself is a beautiful gem, an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The rooms were spacious, elegantly put together and the turquoise bathroom in one of the rooms stole my heart! Aesthetics aside the... More

This trip was one of the best trips I have ever taken and a majority of the reason why was because of this Riad. The person that managed the place (Zuhair) was one of the most generous and kind individuals that I met on this trip! He took care of us from the minute we walked in till we left... More

I loved Riad Papillon so much that I'm hesitant to write a good review in case it becomes so popular that we would be unable to book for our stay next year. We were in Marrakech for my brothers big birthday and we became totally seduced by the magic that is Marrakech, partly due to this magical Riad, pretty as... More

Couldn't love this place more! Booked out the Riad for my sister's hen do and it really couldn't have gotten any better! Fantastic food, incredibly lovely staff-took such great care of all of us, including my cousin who fell very ill just before the trip! The staff also gave us great advice on where to go for dinners/nights out/hammams. They... More

We stayed at the Riad Papillon for a recent conference. We were met at the entrance to the medina by the staff and escorted to the Riad--about a 5-minute walk (we never would have found it otherwise as it's a hidden gem). It was charming from the moment we walked in and saw the interior courtyard complete with fountains and... More

We stayed in this beautiful riad in October. It is a lovely place, a pretty plunge pool in the middle of the ground floor (our room looked out onto it) and a lovely roof terrace where breakfast is served. The staff were lovely and breakfast was great. It is seriously hard to find though so take advantage of the meet... More

We spent four days at this very conveniently located Riad. We were happily surprised by the staff, very polite, knowledgeable, frinedly and caring. The rooms were quiet and elegant, and the breakfast very nice. Mint tea was always encountered witrh a YES PLEASE!!! Flavours, flowers, scents...a delight to be repeated

We have just returned from an amazing 3 night stay at Riad Papillon. As a group of 10 girls celebrating 40th's we hired the whole riad from 21st - 24th November 2014 and were not disappointed. Transfers to and from the airport were pre arranged with the riad and upon our arrival we were welcomed into the calm, relaxing, hidden... More
