Breakfast: Your room rate includes a delicious Moroccan Breakfast which will be served at the time of your choice! The breakfast varies each day and can include traditional Moroccan crepes (Baghrir and Mesman), croissants and pastries, Marrakech Medina breads (from the bakery at the end of the street), local honey, jams (fig, strawberry and rose jams are our favourites), omelettes and other egg dishes, yoghurt, nuts and fresh fruit salad as well as freshly squeezed Marrakech Orange Juice, tea and freshly brewed coffee. For more adventurous guests wishing to explore local foods the Riad can prepare on request White Harira, Matloaa Berber Bread, or Bissara the Marrakech variant of ‘Foul’.

Lunch and Dinner: The food we serve at lunch and dinner reflects the seasonality of available produce. We offer a range of traditional Moroccan dishes like Tagine and couscous. We can usually meet special dietary requirements such as gluten intolerance or vegan diets especially if we are given prior notice. We charge 200 dirhams per person (about £16/ Euro 18) for a three course evening meal and 100 dirhams per person (£8/ Euro 9) for lunch. Each meal is shopped for and prepared individually to accommodate guests preferences, for this reason we request that you please discuss your lunch and dinner requirements with the Riad staff ideally one day in advance.

Why not pre order an evening meal (200 dirhams per person) for the night of you arrival? The Moroccan way is for the whole party to order and share the same meal served out of traditional dishes. We recommend a selection of Moroccan salads followed by Tagine (Lamb with Cumin, Chicken with Lemon, or Beef with Prunes) served with local breads then for desert a seasonal fruit salad.

Vegetarian menu: Lucie, one of the owners of Riad Papillon, is vegetarian so you can order with confidence our equally recommended dinner of vegetarian Moroccan salads followed by the classic ‘Seven Vegetables Couscous’ then fruit salad and local pastries. Let us know your menu choices when you make your reservation and your delicious supper will be waiting for you in the Riad.



If you want a change of scene, there are plenty of great restaurants nearby. Indeed, some of the best Moroccan fine dining restaurants in Marrakech within a couple of minutes walk of Riad Papillon.

The most important attraction in Marrakech is the square, you should visit both in the day and at night because the atmosphere changes a lot. We would also recommend the Marrakech museum and the adjacent Ben Yousef Medersa as well as the Majorelle gardens and possibly the Saadian tombs in the Kasbah district. None of these things need to be booked and of course you should leave time for the famous souks which are open at night as well as in the daytime.

We can arrange two tours for our guest to explore the Medina of Marrakech with horse carriage :

Morning tours:

It takes approximately 2.5 hours starting after breakfast, ideally at 9:30 or you can decide the time. We will escort you to meet the Caleche at Dar el Bacha. The suggested route takes you inside the Medina walls with optional stops at the Bahia and Badii Palaces, then out to the Gardens Koutoubia, a drive around the wall and on to see the Majorelle Gardens.The Cost is 400 dirhams payable to the riad excluding the very modest entry fees for the Palaces and the Majorelle Gardens. The Caleche would normally return with you to Dar El Bacha .

Evening Tours:

This early evening tour takes only 1.5 hours. The tour of the Medina as the sun sets is a highlight, the we will be cross the Jemma al Fnaa square for a little tour of the new town, the Caleche will return you to Dar El Bacha where we will meet you. The cost is 350 dirhams.

The Caleche can take also take you to restaurant if you are booked to have dinner in the new town (Al Fassia, Comptoir Darna, Grand Cafe de la Poste, Chez Pascal,...etc ) the cost is 350 dh. But if you are booked to have dinner at BO'ZIN which is a half hour carriage ride from Marrakech then the cost is 400dirhams. (On return you will have to take a taxi which is not included in the rate)

We can also organize excursions outside Marrakech. The most popular destinations are the Waterfalls on the Ourika Valley in the Atlas Mountains or at the seaside village of Essaouira

Ourika valley- the breath of Marrakech

Nestled away in the middle Atlas Mountains a 45 minute drive from Marrakech lies the enchanting Ourika Valley.

When you think of skiing, Marrakech is not one of the countries that first comes to mind, however it does indeed take place in winter in the Atlas mountains, it is however during summer that the Ourika valley truly comes to life, this is due to a number of reasons. One of them being that the valley acts as a cool refuge from the heat of other parts of Marrakech during the hottest parts of the year. Another reason is that during the hotter parts of the year greater parts of the ice in the Atlas mountains begin to melt and the famed waterfalls of the Ourika valley spring to life and the great wonders of nature that they represent can be seen in all its glory.

The seven waterfalls are one of the most famous places to visit in the whole of Morocco and certainly a very powerful reason to visit the Ourika valley and indeed Morocco in general. As the waterfalls originate from ice melt water high in the Atlas their waters are very cold, so any individual looking for a cooling dip on their ascent up the valley best be brave and ready for a serious temperature drop. It is however all part of the fun as the temperature outside of the water means that one dries very quickly and that the cold water serves to greatly refresh those who swim in it.

Essaouira

It is one of the number one destinations for Marrakchi to take a break from the heat of the inland areas, and rightly so as the city is a wonder to visit. It is in many ways the opposite of Marrakech in that it is a sleepy, provincial and coastal city, but this is not in any way to its detriment.

Indeed if one is visiting it from Marrakech the change can be very refreshing as particularly during the hot North African summers it can be very pleasant to go somewhere cooler for a brief period in order to wind down, indeed Essaouira fulfils exactly such a role in respect to Marrakech as after a while spent in Marrakech, Essaouira can provide an interesting variation and a refreshing short break. As well as the reprieve that Essaouira can provide from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech it is also a major historic centre who’s ramparts have been in place for hundreds of years and traces of the town itself go back into prehistoric times.

"We spent four days at this very conveniently located Riad. We were happily surprised by the staff, very polite, knowledgeable, friendly and caring. The rooms were quiet and elegant, and the breakfast very nice. Mint tea was always encountered with a YES PLEASE!!! Flavours, flowers, scents...a delight to be repeated."

Miryan, Madrid, Spain

"Myself and 9 friends spent 8 nights in Riad Papillon. Due to the size of our group, we were able to rent out the whole riad exclusively which was amazing.Although I had a good look at the photos on the website and on trip advisor before we booked, I was still taken aback by how stunning the Riad was in person! Overall Riad Papillon is a fantastic place to stay - Especially for large groups!"

Lucy, London, UK

"We had a fantastic week in Marrakesh based here , a real oasis amongst the frantic activity , sights , sounds and smells of the Medina. We were glad we arranged for them to have us picked up at the airport and then met by a guide to take us on foot to the Riad but from the moment of our arrival it felt special.
The scents of the Riad and perfumed air of our room were a fantastic welcome and the vegetarian meal on the first evening was excellent. With one of the owners herself a vegetarian , this was both a reliable and delicious first meal"

Flynn, Cheltenham, UK

"Staying in the riad was like being honoured guests in a family home. Nothing was too much trouble - they even gave us a mobile phone to call them if we got lost in the souks! We had pre-booked dinner across town one evening and they took us to find a taxi to make sure we arrived at the right place and weren't over charged. Even better they arranged for us to call them when we were getting into the taxi home so they could be waiting to walk us back to the riad."

Miss Kelda, Sussex, UK

"My long-weekend in Marrakech stayed with me for much longer than the four days we were there. The colours, sounds and smells were all so different and exciting, almost overwhelming. But what really made the stay in this bustling city so special was the peaceful cosyness of Riad Papillon. I am so glad that my boyfriend chose this place to stay over a modern, western-style hotel. As soon as we walked into the Riad and were greeted by the soft and romantic scent of Jasmine, I knew that I would love it. It really gave us the feeling of being in Morocco. I just wanted to drink everything in through my eyes, the colours, the patterns on the balcony railings, the cushions. Everything was so exotic, and so stylish."

Sanya, London, UK

"The free Hipmarrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Hip Marrakech
