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

We love this riad. On the outskirts of the souks and square. Bit difficult to find if its your first time there but golly is it lovely. Breakfast with the tortoises, attentive friendly staff. The cheap rooms are a bit on the pokey side, but they've got aircon and a tv and running hot water. What else do you actually... More

Arrived on a sunny day for 9 nights....weather for the next 8 days was rain, but sun again on the day we left...but this Riad made our holiday enjoyable. The staff - no complaints what so ever - friendly and look after you! We had hugs when we left. Not sure about other reviews about meals, but we never paid... More

For the price this riad is adequate for a (short) stay in Marrakech - Although I wouldn't recommend staying here for more than a couple of nights. The location of the riad isn't too bad but I'd imagine the walk to the square and other attractions would become tiresome after two or three days (especially in hot weather) - It's... More
