We stayed 3 nights in the two first floor bedrooms. The riad is centrally located for all the main sights and attractions of the medina and offered a tranquil, cool and welcome retreat from the frenetic hours of exploring the souks and sightseeing. The air conditioned rooms were very comfortable and had a mini fridge stocked with complimentary soft drinks... More

Just returned from a long birthday weekend with a group of 9 ladies. The riad papillon is beautiful and tranquil, a hidden gem. Excellent location for restaurants and souks which were on the doorstep. The service we received from Zouhair and other members of staff was exceptional. We felt very looked after. The lovely ladies even baked a cake for... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Riad Papillion for 4 nights. We were there for a hen party - highly recommended to stay at this Riad for a big party. Zee and all the staff were great and really made us feel at home. The Riad is beautiful and location is great to experience true Marrakech. We had... More

From the moment we booked our stay, the staff were amazingly helpful, e-mailing to suggest an airport pickup (well worth it, we would never have found it in the heart of the medina's back streets) and lamb tagine on the first night. We were met from the taxi by Aziz who walked us to the Riad and immediately made us... More

Riad Papillon is an absolute gem - a haven of calm and tranquility, right in the heart of the Medina. You really do feel like you're staying in a friend's home - everything is super-relaxed, with breakfast served at a time to suit you and lots of comfy sofas to unwind on, inside the riad and on the rooftop terrace....

We had the pleasure to stay at Riad Papillon for 17 days over Dec '13. The staff are amazing, so attentive and helpful. Located in the Medina it makes it a pleasure to find your way around and back to the Riad again. Zee also arranged a few tours for us. Zagora trip is a must if you don't get... More

We had a really lovely time at riad papillon. The room was very comfortable (a little small), and the rest of the riad was beautiful, especially the roof terrace which was perfect for breakfast on a sunny morning! The staff were lovely, smiley and helpful, the food amazing (we had a meal on the first night - my boyfriend had... More

My husband and I came to Marrakech for our silver wedding anniversary and we were hoping to find a romantic spot. We found it in Riad Papillon. It was far far above the standard that we expected for our £80 per room and the breakfast seemed to never end. Our stay was made extra special because the owners had arranged... More

Very nice start to our 9 day vacation in Marrakesh! Aziz gave us the perfect start to our vacation with his recommendations on where to go, eat etc. The room was situated on the first floor, a bit small, but nice. Great service, ok food and perfect "safe" location close to the Souk.
