We stayed in this riad twice on the same trip, once in a room on the first floor and once in a room on the ground floor. I preferred the room on the first floor but all the rooms are beautifully decorated with pretty wall hangings, rose petals on the bed, and incense burning to welcome you. The bathrooms are...

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.

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...
