Located in the fashionable Dar El Bashah district of the Medina, a short walk from the main square, Riad Papillon is an intimate and luxurious riad with five stylish rooms, a dipping pool and a fantastic roof terrace complete with sun beds, dining areas and a Moroccan tent.
Riad Papillon is a boutique hotel in the antique district of Marrakech near the Pasha Glaoui Palace, and it provides a tranquil oasis in the heart of this vibrant city. Explore the bustling markets and squares during the day and then retreat to your little piece of paradise, complete with a dipping pool in which to cool off, a patio courtyard where you can sip tea and relax, and a stunning terrace looking out over the rooftops. The five guest rooms are all uniquely decorated and superbly equipped, the food is fresh and delicious and the staff will bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. This is the way to see Marrakech in style.
The riad is located at the end of Derb Tizougarine a quiet side street, only a few hundred yards away from the most exclusive antique shops in Marrakech, and just an 8 minute stroll through the souks to the Jemaa el Fna. The area is very fashionable (the nearby palace is often used to accommodate visiting heads of state) and it is always safe, even late at night. The best juice bar and the most outstanding patisserie in town are both just a moment from your door. Marrakech has so much to offer that it is hard to narrow it down. Haggle in the famous souks, visit the splendid mosques and museums, sample mouth-watering Moroccan cuisine, visit Bahia Palace, try some of the restaurants and cafes in the newer parts of town, and marvel at the crafts on offer. Marrakech really is a feast for the senses.

You enter each room through a traditional panelled timber door under a Moroccan arch, through walls that are several feet thick. The bedrooms, named after native flowers visited by butterflies, each have their own style and character but all have a cool, calm, relaxing atmosphere.
