We had a wonderful stay here - Yassin and the girls were lovely (delicious breakfasts, and everyone was so friendly..) The room we had (Hibiscus room) was really special - the bathroom especially - it was so nice to come back to such a relaxing space after a hectic day in the medina or in the souks. I really couldn't... More

We stayed at Riad Papillon and unanimously agreed that we had found a real gem! Everything was perfect - Yassine and the girls went out of their way to make us feel very at home and welcome. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the cooking fantastic. (If you have the Aubergine salad recipe to pass on I would be eternally grateful... More

Just returned from the most wonderfully romantic hotel we have ever stayed in-the riad papillon-a smallish boutique hotel in the Medina of Marrakech. We loved everything about it-It was welcoming, spotlessly clean, relaxed, discrete and helpful staff (thank you Yassine and the team if you ever get to read this!). We originally had set our heart on staying at riad... More

After wondering down some rather grim and dark alleyways we arrived at the door to the Riad with some trepidation. Then the door opened to a delightful central courtyard to the Riad. From that moment on we were made to feel rather special. All our questions and requests were met positively and with a smile. Abdou, Yassine and the girls... More

From booking the stay to requesting information about the city and a special anniversary dinner in the riad we had the most outstanding service and were given the warmest of welcomes. On discovering that we were celebrating our first anniversary the staff arranged a 'home cooked' meal on our penultimate night and it was without doubt the best food that... More

Myself and 9 girlfriends travelled to Marrakech for a hen weekend and stayed at Riad Papillon. We had the most amazing stay from the moment we arrived. We were met by Abdou from the airport and escorted to the Riad. On arrival we met Yassine and the rest of the staff who looked after us from the moment we arrived... More

Papillion is beautiful, Abdu, Yasim and the ladies looked after us so well. It really was 5 star service. They created such a friendly homely feel that we all relaxed immediately and had a great time. The food was incredible, and we quickly found out that it was way better than anything we could find in the many restaurants. Thank... More
