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. There were some lovely thoughtful touches, including a mobile phone to call the riad staff if you get lost in the Souks maze, great tips on local restaurants and a surprise birthday cake for our friend's birthday. The rooms are beautifully furnished (if a little dark!) and very quiet despite the riad's central location, so you're guaranteed a good night's sleep (in very comfy beds!). It's worth asking the riad staff their advice on things to do - we booked a trip to the Atlas mountains which was a highlight of our trip and good value for a full day out with a local guide. We booked through Hip Marrakech who were really helpful - they responded super-quick to all our emails, gave some great advice and helped us choose the best riad for us, advising on those that could cater for gluten-free diets in particular. Riad Papillon and their lovely team (especially Aziz) are just what you need to come back to after a fabulous day out sightseeing and we would definitely recommend staying there
