My girlfriend and I stayed 4 nights at Riad Papillon and cannot recommend it highly enough. We stayed in the Jasmine room which was clean, cosy and beautifully presented. The staff at the Riad could not have been more accommodating, from our transfer from the airport, delicious breakfasts served at any time, and fantastic evening meals. Zuhair in particular was...

My wife and I have recently returned from a memorable 3-night stay at Riad Papillon, and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the centre of the Medina.

Highly recommended. My partner and I visited Marrakech for our fourth visit on business/pleasure having stayed outside the medina previously and we felt that our experience at Riad Papillon was far superior to any of the previous lodgings where we stayed (although at the time we were more than happy with these experiences). What did we like about Papillon? Firstly...

While everything at this riad was brilliant the helpfulness of the staff was the best I've ever experienced. They really went above and beyond what was expected of them, with everything from directions to telling us how much we should be paying for things. The rooms were excellent and food is delicious.

I stayed in this Riad with my boyfriend for 4 nights. The staff are extremely helpful and because the Riad is staffed 24/7 there is always someone to answer your questions. We were welcomed with a lovely meal of Lamb Tagine cooked by one of the ladies. I would highly recommend this if you land late in the evening, as...

We only have praise for this riad and the staff at this guesthouse! We stayed for three nights at the beginning of May 2013 and stayed in the Rose room for all three nights.

My partner and I found Riad Papillon at the Destinations exhibition in London and met with the delightful owners Mike and Louise. We love their environmentally friendly approach and their passion for Morocco-this is why we chose their place (as well as the fact we got an amazing deal for staying there for 10 days!) The staff were quite incredible...
