My wife and I spent three nights in the Riad and the service exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Rose Room on the lower floor and it was perfect. The Riad is ideally situated for exploring the local markets, museums and gardens. Looking forward to returning again in the near future, it felt like a home from home. Highly...

Everything about Riad Paipillon is tasteful, from the location and decor to the staff and finishing touches. The owners have clearly taken great care to retain the moroccan charm whilst ensuring that no comfort is lacking. My bed was sooooo comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were attentive but discrete. The loan of a local...

Wonderful stay at riad papillon! Perfect hosts, excellent breakfasts, and meals (lunch or dinner) can be made to order. And it is right next to the Souks and some great cafes and restaurants, but as it is off the main streets was quiet and a good nights sleep was pretty much assured. The rooms also have air-conditioners but didn't really...

Although we travel quite a bit this was our first trip to Morocco. The Riad was our first stop after we arrived from the airport. We were greeted warmly with mint tea while we took in the traditional Moroccan detail and charm of the Riad courtyard. We lost a piece of luggage in route to Morocco and Zuhair, the Riad...

Riad Papillon was the perfect place to stay in Marrakech. The staff were very friendly, they organised airport transfers, cooked us a delicious evening meal and the breakfast every morning on the roof top terrace was lovely. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed here three nights, a comfortable place with good AC and wifi. Our host Aziz was so helpful and even helped us negotiate a price with a taxi to the airport (this can be a challenge for first timers). I recommend you check the message the hotel sends you. The company has four locations and Google Maps only places...

Eight of us visited Marrakech as a 60th birthday celebration! From the moment we landed at Marrakech airport to our departure we encountered hospitality that ensured our stay was going to be amazing. A trip none of us will forget. The Riad Papillon is situated in an excellent corner of the Medina, next to the Royal Palace, which makes it...

Landing at Marrakech Airport from UK, we all had to complete Landing forms and had not realised this beforehand. The queue for Passport control then took well over an hour so make sure you have a pen handy to complete the form and be prepared to queue. The wait was not too unpleasant as our flight had arrived very early....

The staff at Riad Papillon consistently went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable from the welcome of mint tea and biscuits when we arrived to having our luggage carted to the taxi that returned us to the airport. The young man who manages the riad was especially helpful in his suggestions and tour arrangements, and...
