We stayed at the Riad Catalina - and I say after coming from the Riad Fes we were a little spoiled! But this is a great hotel - I think it is a great location - not too far from the main square and not difficult to find. The patio is beautiful and there are lots of birds and turtle... More

I thought this place was beautiful. I do agree with some previous reviews that the rooms are a little small, but ours was always spotless and the bathroom was lovely. The courtyard is a haven and stunning - though the thousands of sparrows living in the tree make a racket at dusk. Breakfast was delcious and varied every day with... More

The pluses: The staff were helpful, they tried really hard to make up for all of the problems we faced. The courtyard was beautiful. The location was great. The minuses: Tiny rooms. Uncomfortable beds. Dirty bathroom. We had to have our room switched. The dog who lives there makes the restaurant and lobby bathroom smell. And he peed in the... More

A most charming, spotless, luxurious riad ever. Nadia and her staff were friendly, polite.and made us feel part of the Catalina "family" .The location was perfect, the alleyway with all the little cats, snoozing in the sun, was very close to the Bab mansour gate, and easy to navigate. We had the Royal Suite-(I think everyone does!), - just superb.... More

First trip to Marrakech and we were absolutely delighted with our stay at the Riad Catalina. The charming Nadia was a mine of information and the staff couldn't be more helpful. A great place to return to from especially from the manic goings on in the Jemaa. Beautiful surroundings just to sit and watch the birds, the tortoises and Charlie... More

We stayed at Riad Catalina from Nov 28th to Dec 12th 2008. On arrival we were upgraded to the Royal Suite which is beautiful, decorated in the style of the Badia Palace and had so much space that deciding which parts to use was our first job! The Riad made the holiday as it is so different from featureless Modern... More

Nothing was too much trouble, they were always on hand to help. and everything was clean. We were very surprised and lucky to be upgraded to the Royal Suite, which was fantastic, though... More

I have just returned from a long weekend spent at this wonderful riad in the vibrant city of Marrakech. Although it would have been difficult to find on our own,the mystery tour down narrow passageways held a breathtaking surprise behind the door of Riad Catalina. If you want to really experience the magic of Marrakech then stay here in this... More

The perfect decor and convenient location are only out matched by the efficient and friendly staff. This riad is easy to find from the nearest gate - Bab Laksour - as it has signs on the walls of the alleys. The roof dip pool is a blessing after a hot day in the souks. A perfect base for a trip...
