A beautiful riad,ideally situated 10 minutes walk away form the bustle of the Medina and the Souks, within a traditional Moroccan residential area . The fact that you can only access it on foot only adds to the charm. The staff were helpful, informative and discrete which helped to make it a peaceful oasis to return to after all the... More

From pre-arrival stage to during and after the stay, they've been very helpful. It was our first time in Morocco and we were not an Arabic nor french speaker, we appreciated their prompt support in fluent English. We spent 4 nights at this Riad, just a minute walk from the medina yet very calm and peaceful. The medina was a... More

What a wonderful find... The Riad Catalina was just perfect for our 4 night stay in Marrakech. We felt safe & secure behind the huge wooden door which is opened only by one of the helpful staff. Intercom buzzer to gain access inside this Riad which leads to the beautiful courtyard with a tranquil feel. A water fountain & small... More

Riad Catalina Spent a week in this Riad. Paid extra to stay in Room 307. Rooms 307 and 308 share a large terrace with tables/chairs/sunbeds. These are the only two rooms with any outside space. There are 46 steps up to these rooms. Room 308 is larger with a seating area. Room 307 has a small mezzanine level with a... More

I have been coming to Marrakech since 2007 and always stay at this magical riad in the medina - it is my home when I am here in Morocco. As a tour operator I bring my clients here as well and they love the ambiance of the courtyard after a busy day in the souks. Nadia and her staff are... More

A really friendly place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle but just round the corner from the square and the souk. Great staff, good food and a stunningly beautiful riad. Room 104 is perfect. Dream escape to a Moroccan home from home.

Have just returned after four great days, staying at the Catalina. The staff are super-very helpful and friendly. They organised our transfers for us and a day trip into the Ourika Valley, which was amazing. We ate in the delightful courtyard on our first evening-the food was delicious and very good value. Breakfast in 'our tent' was a real treat... More

For the price we paid we felt they were kidding when we were showed our room. It's a beautiful riad with lovely people running it and I feel it made our first stay in Marrakech much easier. It felt so serene amidst the hubbub of Marrakech but also had real character. The breakfasts were delicious and the stag were always... More

Riad organised a taxi transfer from airport when we arrived. You may pay a bit more than if you sorted it out yourself but worth it as riad can be a little hard to find and taxi can only go as far as the outside wall of the Medina. Riad itself was a real gem, lovely internal courtyard and the... More

We stayed here due to a mix up with our booking at another riad. Although at first we were annoyed that we had to stay here we quickly warmed to the place and found the staff very helpful. The riad itself is not as glamorous as the first one we went to but is very charming and quirky - our... More
