Papillion is beautiful, Abdu, Yasim and the ladies looked after us so well. It really was 5 star service. They created such a friendly homely feel that we all relaxed immediately and had a great time. The food was incredible, and we quickly found out that it was way better than anything we could find in the many restaurants. Thank... More

My partner and I loved everything about our stay at Riad Papillon. From the moment we arrived at the airport we felt completely and utterly taken care of by Abdou, Yassine and the ladies without feeling intruded upon. We felt so safe and cared for-Yassine even provided with a mobile phone in case we got lost in the souks! The... More

We were met by the fantastic Abdelatif on the main road, a couple of minutes from the Riad and he guided us through the maze of streets and alleys to the beautiful Riad. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff there, happy to give advice on restaurants/attractions and shopping. Our air-conditioned room was beautiful with a fantastic double shower... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week in August in the middle of Ramadan. Being our first trip to Marrakech we didn't know what to expect. Our first impressions of walking down the small backstreets of the Medina made us feel like we might have made a mistake booking the Riad Papillon but how wrong could we have... More

Did not expect such tranquillity in Marrakesh. Staff could not have done more to make our holiday perfect. Amazing value for money. Will recommend to family and friends and would love to return.

We have just come back from staying at Riad Papillon which we loved. The Riad is very stylish, luxurious, clean and quiet - GREAT value for money. All of the rooms are unique and beautifully decorated with thier own bathrooms. It is really close to the main sights and has everything you need on the doorstep. The food is very... More

Had a fantastic stay at this Riad with a group of 6 of us taking 3 of the 5 rooms available. It is such a beautiful place in amongst the craziness of the streets outside and has been newly rennovated so everything is nice and new. The rooms are lovely, it has a great plunge pool for cooling off and... More

We had a late flight arriving into Marrakech so pre-booked a meal for our arrival. I would highly recommend this on at least one night (definitely your first) as this was the nicest Moroccan meal we ate (I recommend the ‘melt in your mouth’ lamb tajine). Every nights sleep was perfect and breakfast on the sunny roof terrace every morning... More

wonderful food, I would recommend eating in the' big tent ' on the roof terrace , excellent ambiance, the bedroom we had was a little small, but that is the nature of the building, lots of nice touches and local decorations. Excellent location , in the medina

We were upgraded to the Sister Riad the Cinnemon which was a five minute walk from the Papillion due to building work taking place next door. We found the accomadation excellant, five star and nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff. We would 100% recommend the transfer from the airport as the Riads would be a little... More
