I chose this Riad based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We chose to use the taxi pick up service offered by the hotel which is really worth it and were met at a point where the taxi could go no further and our host Yossine took us down some winding passages until we came to our blue...

We had a fantastic week in Marrakesh based here , a real oasis amongst the frantic activity , sights , sounds and smells of the Medina. We were glad we arranged for them to have us picked up at the airport and then met by a guide to take us on foot to the Riad but from the moment of...

My friend and I chose Riad Paillon after reading all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Staying in the riad was like being honoured guests in a family home. Nothing was too much trouble - they even gave us a mobile phone to call them if we got lost in the souks! We had pre-booked dinner...

My long-weekend in Marrakech stayed with me for much longer than the four days we were there. The colours, sounds and smells were all so different and exciting, almost overwhelming. But what really made the stay in this bustling city so special was the peaceful cosyness of Riad Papillon. It really was like a balm for my senses in the...

Our family of four (with two seven year olds) stayed for 3 nights from 25-28 oct 2012. The Riad is beautiful and very well located for the medina and the souks, they laid on a delicious tagine on our first night, the best meal we had in Marrakech, and arranged a airport pick up. Yassine looked after us personally and...

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely Riad. Beautiful rooms and large, clean bathrooms with lots of charm. It felt like an oasis of calm only minutes away from the hussle of the souk. Lovely roof terrace to relax on at the end of the day and we had a fantastic evening meal there on our first night. Would definitely...

Trying to book a fairly last minute trip to Marrakech with hardly any spare time was always going to be a challenge but, after a bit of intensive (10 minutes) online research, we came across Riad Papillon and took a chance on it. It proved well worth it. From the word go, the staff went out of their way to...

Papillon is a wonderful riad with clean, traditionally decorated rooms. What I liked there the most was the combination of exotic and homey feeling. The atmosphere, decor, the friendly and helpfull people working there, all contributed to this. Each day started early with a delicious and fresh breakfast on the roof terrace. The morning continued with a few hour's worth...

Just returned from an 8-night holiday in Morocco, which included a 4-night stay at Riad Papillon. Our group of 11 (4 adults and 7 children ages 5-13) rented out the entire riad. It was perfect. It was exactly what we hoped it would be! The location is perfect, right in the heart of the action inside the medina, easy walking...
