Flashpacking is the latest craze for affluent independent travellers, posh backpacking for the internet age. What better location for the flashpacker than Marrakech the ‘Capital City’ of the hippie trail, and what better flashpacking accommodation than a luxury Riad hotel in the heart of the ancient Medina.
Todays super hippies have come a long way from their couch surfing days demanding luxury accommodation with no compromises, air conditioning, luxury linens, first class toiletries, dipping pools, satellite tv, ipod docks and most important of all….. fast free wifi!!!! Where better for a great value for money luxury flashpacking experience than Riad Papillon with it’s stunning roof terrace. Relax, sip a complimentary mint tea and soak up the bohemian atmosphere.
The flashpacker is a truly independent traveller, seeking an exotic experience on their own terms. Our friendly and efficient staff offer the warmest of Moroccan welcomes. We can hold your luxury room or suite while you grab one of the flashpackers favourite low cost flight bargains to Marrakech.
Start in a Caravanserai ( a camel motel!) recently restored using UNESCO funding (Marrakech is a UNESCO world heritage site), pass by the local bakery (sample fresh bread if you wish), walk on into the souks, see the clever slatted roof above (Berber air conditioning!), pass the slipper sellers, see crafts men at work making musical instruments, peep in the shops selling expert lemon wood marketry, and on to the dyers souk.
