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...

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...

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...

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...

Riad Papillon is really a fantastic little place, wonderful staff & really warm, friendly & attentive, especially the guys that pick you up from the gates, and generally look after you while you're there. Bit of a rabbit warren in the Medina (which is part of the charm), so really great to come back to this Riad and put your...
