Riad Papillon is a beautiful place, scented with oils to complete the atmosphere. We stayed in the Geranium room which was beautiful, compact but adequate. The attention to detail with the fittings was matched by the supremely attentive and friendly service. And the location was great, easily walkable to everything you'd want to see.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were extremely well looked after by Yassine and the girls. A delicious, freshly prepared meal was waiting for us and we were blown away by the prettiness of this riad. It is very quiet although just off the Medina and very handy for 'The Square'. Breakfasts were fine and...

We stayed at Riad Papillon for one week in late January/early February in the Hibiscus room. We had a wonderful stay and Riad Papillon was the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech Medina, which could have otherwise been overwhelming. The staff were friendly and welcoming and provided excellent service. The Riad itself is beautifully furnished in a...

We had a fantastic time in Riad Papillon. From the airport transport to checkout it was a wonderful experience. Yassine was extremely attentive and friendly and dealt with all of our annoying problems - like getting lost in the souks! I felt safe and relaxed. Breakfast on the terrace was divine. Will definitely return!

We started our trip at the sister riad, the Cinnamon, so it was only fitting we ended at the Papillon. We'd experienced some highs and lows around Morocco, so it was with a sense of relief that the Papillon had the same air of calm escapism and luxurious comfort as the Cinnamon. Attentive and helpful staff, luxury room, beautiful bathroom,...

Riad Papillon After spending two wonderful star filled nights in Riad Cinnamon. Hassan pushed my suitcase in a wooden chariot over cobbles, past the Fondouks spilling out artisans, lanterns and bright leather slippers the colours of sticky jellybeans to Riad Papillon. Another five days of being spoiled. Breakfast in bed, on the patio, by the side of the dipping pool,...

We had a wonderful stay here - Yassin and the girls were lovely (delicious breakfasts, and everyone was so friendly..)

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.
