RIAD PAPILLON | Marrakech Medina

Conveniently located in a fashionable district close to the Dar El Bacha palace only 10 minutes' walk from the main square, Riad Papillon is a small boutique hotel that has been beautifully refurbished. It has beautifully appointed bedrooms, a pretty patio with a plunge pool and a really good roof terrace views to the Atlas mountains. It is an ideal base for groups sleeping up to 10 people. Babysitting, evening food and massages are available on request.

Riad Papillon


Accommodation: The riad has a well-equipped roof terrace with sun loungers, fountain and barbecue. Of the five bedrooms three, Bouganvilla, Jasmine and Rose are, unusually, on the ground floor allowing easy access to the pool. On the first floor there are a further 2 bedrooms, Geranium and Hibiscus and an open “bhou” sitting room with fireplace.

Each bedroom has a hand carved queen sized bed which may be converted into twin beds - the flexibility to sleep up to 10 people in single beds when required is a particular advantage for groups of singles. All rooms have air-conditioning, heating, Satellite TV, iPod docking stations, mini fridge, WiFi, hairdryers, top quality sprung mattresses, 300 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, hypoallergenic pillows and en suite bathrooms with showers – Room Jasmine also has a bath and the Rose room may sleep a third person.

The roof terrace has a Berber tent, sun loungers, barbecue and on a clear day views to the Atlas Mountains.
