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

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.

It is located close to beautiful shops which sell amazing pieces of jewellery, candles and handmade shoes. The meals are amazing and Zouhair and the girls go out of their way to... More

Me and 7 other ladies have just returned after an amazing 3 nights stay for my hen weekend, where we took over 4 of the beautifully decorated rooms!
