I chose this Riad based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We chose to use the taxi pick up service offered by the hotel which is really worth it and were met at a point where the taxi could go no further and our host Yossine took us down some winding passages until we came to our blue door. There were four of us travelling and we had both the rooms on the first floor which were really charming and comfortable. The Riad offered us the option on a evening meal which we took and it was very nice - a lamb tagine with some local salads which i hadnt come across before. The Riad also sold at a reasonable price a pretty decent red wine to go with it. The next day unfortunately was raining so we didnt get to see Marrakech at its best. It was an excellent location and amazingly we didnt get lost, but were given a 'hotline' to Yossine for him to help out if we needed him. I was initially a little apprehensive about walking down the passageways back to the Riad in the dark, but its well lit and you felt quite safe - just watch out for the mopeds and the donkeys! Well done team Papillion you have a little gem there.
