We stayed at Riad Papillon with our two children. The lovely Abdel is so welcoming and went out of his way to make sure we had all the information needed for a safe and enjoyable stay in Marrakech. He even lent us a phone in case we needed to call him. The Riad is an oasis from the chaos of...

Visited this riad in February. It was a group off 11 ladies so we were fortunate enough to have the riad all to ourselves. Bliss! We arrived and meet very easily by our transfer and meet at the end of the transfer by Yassan who relieved us of our luggage. We were then led through the winding streets to the...

We were met and guided to Riad Papillon through the narrow streets and alleys of the Medina,which was just as well because we would never have found it ourselves.Over mint tea we were given a map on which main routes and points of interest were marked and explained.This proved to be really useful.We were also given a dedicated mobile phone...

It's a small riad that has very helpful caring staff. Make sure you have at least one dinner with them. The room was very small and being on the ground floor gets quite noisy, hand on heart i think it was a over priced.

I stayed here last week with my teenage daughter. I was initially worried about being two females on our own and getting lost etc. I need not have worried. Yassan put all concerns to rest by showing us a variety of routes to follow and outlining nearby landmarks to return to; he was great. The useful mobile phone supplied stayed...

I agree with all the previous reports in that this is a fantastic place to stay to experience the real Medina in Marraketch. Everything is a walkable distance from the riad and once inside the closed door you experience wonderful tranquility, beautiful surroundings and amazing staff. Abdul and Yossin couldn't have been more helpful and even give you a mobile...

Abdel, the Duty Manager type chap, was helpful & charming from start to finish. We asked for a proper bed in our room for our 12 year old son and they fully obliged ( tho good thing he wasn't oversized!). The breakfast on the terrace would equal anything in a top London hotel - and nowhere could beat the pretty...
