I can't speak highly enough of this beautiful riad and their kind, attentive staff.... I enjoyed a magical 40th birthday here with friends a few days ago and although we had read the great reviews we were still really blown away.... Beautiful rooms, perfect location, great food and exceptional staff. Every care was taken to ensure that we were happy,... 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

"Enter as strangers. Leave as friends." Is prominently displayed on a sign near the entrance. I found this to be true. Everything about Riad Papillion was absolutely fabulous! Exquisite! Riad Papillion is located in the heart of the Marrakech medina (which is like a maze and you can easily get lost there). While I delighted in the stunning and magical... More

I booked the entire place for my family of 10 for the first three nights of an 11 night Morocco trip. It was excellent in every way. Compact bedrooms but spotless and the raid was ideal for a large family. I might have felt differently if there we other folks there at the same time as it was so intimate... More

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
