The staff, the silence, the authenticity of the Riad and the amazing food they served us! Couldn't be more happy! We had the best 5th wedding anniversary on the Riad rooftop, candlelit table made by Mohseen and his team. They exceeded our expectations and definitely would give them and the place 10 stars!
Nothing! Everything was perfect :)
Beautiful rooftop terrasse Good breakfast Helpful app to get around the medina
Overall disappointing stay at Riad Star. I had booked at Riad Papillon and got « upgraded » to Riad Star... however the accommodations did not live up to my expectations. The TV and the AC did not work, I had no towels or pillowcases in my room, and I found cockroaches on my bedroom floor!! Also, I would not recommend this hotel to women travelling solo, as it is a bit removed from the most touristic streets of the medina and you have to walk through quite a few sketchy alleyways to get to the riad, where I kept getting yelled at by local men. I’m used to travelling alone and it was one of the first time I did not feel safe AT ALL.
Hospitality of the people who work at the Riad was excellent. The breakfast is good.
The rooftop is not like the photos, it could be better if they clean it. It’s a lot smaller than the photos.
The staff (Hischam) was so polite and made us fell at home. His tips were so useful to walk through the Medina. The localisation is good.
They offered an update to other Riad (Star), but particularly we prefered stay on Papillon. Our bedroom hadn't windows, the lights was so weak, then it was so dark inside. All nights the power supply was down, then the air conditioner used stop working and started again just in the morning.
The Riad Papillon is located at the end of a convoluted narrow walkway in the old medina. It is a short walk to all the shops and restaurants as well as a busy corner outside the medina where one can get a taxi. The hosts speak Arabic, French and English. The rooms are somewhat small, but have many classic design features. The rooftop is pleasant with lots of plants and flowers and room to lounge around in the shaded corners.
It is easy to get lost when venturing out into the medina, and Google maps or Maps.me can fail in the narrow alleys so we had to rely on landmarks such as shops or other riads to return to our room. The shops close in he later evening which can add to navigation problems.
Visitors to Marrakech will find that the Riad Papillon by Marrakech Riad is a fantastic accommodation choice. The hotel is only 3km from Marrakech Train Station and 7km from Menara Airport, giving guests a number of convenient transportation options. With Djemaa el Fna and Yves Saint Laurent Garden both within a short distance, there is no shortage of things to do in the area. When guests have some time on their hands they can make use of the onsite facilities. Travelers requiring pickup service can book this directly through the hotel.
