Riad Papillon is located in the fashionable antique district of the famous old Marrakech Medina. J Very close to the fashionable Dar El Bacha palace, only 5 minutes' walk from the souks and under 10 minutes' walk from the main square, Place Jemma el Fna. Set at the end of a short alley off the wide pedestrian and scooter thoroughfare, only a couple of minutes’ walk from taxi access, it is situated in an antique dealers’ district.

The delightful roof terrace has view out over to the Atlas Mountains on a clear day with a Berber tent, sun loungers and barbeque. This is a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast at your leisure or gather in the evening for a meal.

Of the five bedrooms three, Bouganvilla, Jasmine and Rose are onto the ground floor courtyard with access to the pool. The second two (Geranium and Hibiscus) are on the first floor with 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, Wi-Fi, 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.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you for all your help, advice and guidance in organising our holiday. As this was not our first booking with Tourdust we were confident that all our transfers would work perfectly and they did - everything ran so smoothly! The riad in Marrakesh was stunning - a truly beautiful oasis of calm in such a busy, bustling city. As you can imagine, we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our room as outside was so hot! I was nervous about walking through the souks at night, but as they were well lit we felt perfectly safe and found our confidence grew in navigating the journey home each time we ventured out. When we arrived at our lodge in the Atlas Mountains we were blown away by the scenery. The views were amazing and the beautiful lodge gardens were the perfect place to sit and relax before taking a dip in the pool. Our day trek was truly amazing - no small thanks to our guide Rashid, who was so helpful and knowledgable. The lunch in the traditional Berber village was delicious and we were were made to feel so welcome. The home owner showed us how to make bread and then cooked it for us in her traditional clay oven. This was a memory we will never forget as we stood surrounded by her chickens and goats watching her use her bare hands to prepare the fire! Our night in the desert was breathtaking. The camel ride at sunset was so incredible and the quad biking the next morning was brilliant fun. I am so glad we added in these extras as they really made the experience! We finally made it to our hotel at the coast, where the surf lessons were a hit and the hotel was a great place to relax and read! Thank you again for all your help. We would definitely recommend Tourdust to all our friends and family. Tanya
