This small Riad was excellent. The staff spoke excellent English and could not have been more helpful. They gave us the house phone so that we could contact them and promised that they would find us if we got lost. The rooms were small but nicely decorated with nice bathrooms, and good value for money. The Riad was very quiet... More

This riad is perfect if you are looking for a mix of traditional and contemporary style blended together with excellent taste. It is an oasis of calm away from the bustling souks and alley ways. The food was fantastic and I shall never forget the gentle aroma of Jasmin, wafting through the courtyard, rooms and terrace. The boys were great... More

We stayed in the Jasmin Room which was on the ground floor. Luckily it was a very quiet few days otherwise it might have bothered me that people could sit around just outside our room. Breakfast was good and you could have it either on the roof top or on the first floor. I would definitely recommend eating in at... More

Travelled to Marrakech for my 30th last December. After wanting to visit for so many years, I was slightly worried that it may not live up to my expectations. I needn't have worried, it absolutely did, and Riad Papillion definitely played a part in that. It's hard to sum up all the reasons we loved the Riad so much. As... More

A lovely riad in a great location. Yassine, Hakim and the wonderful ladies are very helpful. Make sure you enjoy at least one dinner at the riad itself - the food is fantastic (we also highly recommend Libzar as another restaurant to try as well as La Maison Arabe, which also has a fantastic hammam that Yassine can book you...

Much of what I'd say has already been said. This is a great place to stay:comfortable and a comparatively easy walk through the souks to the Square. Our room was delightful and perfect for the week long stay..I mean just how much luggage do you want to lug to Marrakech? A realxing oasis in the middle of the narrow alley... More
