We hired the whole place for 4 nights for our group. We were 6 people in 5 rooms. The place is as lovely as it looks in the photos. All of the rooms are beautiful. Three are on the ground floor and two on the first floor - all en suite with different styles of decor and air con. The... More

Although we travel quite a bit this was our first trip to Morocco. The Riad was our first stop after we arrived from the airport. We were greeted warmly with mint tea while we took in the traditional Moroccan detail and charm of the Riad courtyard. We lost a piece of luggage in route to Morocco and Zuhair, the Riad... More

Riad Papillon was the perfect place to stay in Marrakech. The staff were very friendly, they organised airport transfers, cooked us a delicious evening meal and the breakfast every morning on the roof top terrace was lovely. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed here three nights, a comfortable place with good AC and wifi. Our host Aziz was so helpful and even helped us negotiate a price with a taxi to the airport (this can be a challenge for first timers). I recommend you check the message the hotel sends you. The company has four locations and Google Maps only places... More

Eight of us visited Marrakech as a 60th birthday celebration! From the moment we landed at Marrakech airport to our departure we encountered hospitality that ensured our stay was going to be amazing. A trip none of us will forget. The Riad Papillon is situated in an excellent corner of the Medina, next to the Royal Palace, which makes it... More

Landing at Marrakech Airport from UK, we all had to complete Landing forms and had not realised this beforehand. The queue for Passport control then took well over an hour so make sure you have a pen handy to complete the form and be prepared to queue. The wait was not too unpleasant as our flight had arrived very early.... More

The staff at Riad Papillon consistently went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable from the welcome of mint tea and biscuits when we arrived to having our luggage carted to the taxi that returned us to the airport. The young man who manages the riad was especially helpful in his suggestions and tour arrangements, and... More

Marrakech is a beautiful city and I'm sure you would see that wherever you stayed but Riad Papillon will make your holiday 100% better than it would be if you didn't stay here. The riad itself is beautiful, from the courtyard plunge pool to the sink in the bathrooms. We stayed in the Rose room and I think it is... More

This is a lovely road, and if we were building a house somewhere where rate temperatures climb to extreme heat, this would be the style. The owners have done a great job creating your home away from home and we had a wonderful stay with our friends - one couple celebrating a 20 year anniversary.

Came here with a large group to celebrate a 20th wedding anniversary. Very nice place, friendly and helpful staff the owner dropped in to say Hello. Would definitely stay there again. Annoyingly TripAdvisor says my comments are not long enough so will not let me post the review so have had to add this sentence
