We were part of a larger group who stayed at the Adore nearby. Attentive staff who would be there to let you in and out as needed, so very secure. Refreshments also offered throughout the day. Very quiet inside the Riad so good to get away from the hustle of the nearby souks

Staying at Riad Papillon was one of the best decisions we made about our trip to Morocco. The Riad is beautiful and the staff are more than helpsom and welcoming. A special thanks to Badar, who went above and beyond what could be expected. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Marrakech.

Good location-very central. Nice rooms. Small boutique place. Good hospitality. Riad is down a dark alley so good to be aware when arriving late at night. Probably better for couples/families. Nice food, but somewhat pricey.

We spent 4 wonderful night in this nice Riad. The place is very central just few meters from the souk. Zued (I hope to write his name right) made our stay comfortable. He advised, solved and offered his help always with a smile and discretion. He is a good manager, an added value for this Riad. Thank you Zued!

My wife and I spent three nights in the Riad and the service exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Rose Room on the lower floor and it was perfect. The Riad is ideally situated for exploring the local markets, museums and gardens. Looking forward to returning again in the near future, it felt like a home from home. Highly...

Everything about Riad Paipillon is tasteful, from the location and decor to the staff and finishing touches. The owners have clearly taken great care to retain the moroccan charm whilst ensuring that no comfort is lacking. My bed was sooooo comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were attentive but discrete. The loan of a local...

Wonderful stay at riad papillon! Perfect hosts, excellent breakfasts, and meals (lunch or dinner) can be made to order. And it is right next to the Souks and some great cafes and restaurants, but as it is off the main streets was quiet and a good nights sleep was pretty much assured. The rooms also have air-conditioners but didn't really...

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...
