We have just come back from a long weekend (2nd Dec – 5th Dec) in Marrakech. This is our second visit to Marrakech, before we had stopped in one of the big hotels on the outskirts of Marrakech, this time we wanted to try a Riad. We stayed at the Riad Catalina opting for half board. The staff are so... More

If you normally like to stay at a chain hotel with predicatable services and rooms, this isn't the place for you. A traditional house centred round a beautiful courtyard, the rooms are small and traditional and you are lucky if you get a window (usually off the bathroom). The pool is very small and has few loungers/chairs, so is great... More

This was my first time to Marrakech and I was advised to stay in a Riad. The Riad Catalina was excellent, clean, very friendly staff and lovely breakfast. The room was small with no windows but more than adequate. The pool was fantastic to cool off after walking round the souks all day. A definate must. We booked a taxi... More

Lovely courtyard. Swimming pool is more a plunge pool. Evening meal was lovely but quite expensive. Room was on the small side but well designed and decorated. Superbly friendly & courteous staff. Alcohol available (wine/beer/spirits). Very central - fairly difficult to find initially but probably easier than most other riads (you don't have to make your way through the souks... More

I'll start by saying something positive. It has a good central location. Which of course means it is a bit noisy but it is an easy walk to the main square. Now the negatives: The room (103) was very small, only just enough room to move around the bed. The floor had not been cleaned before our arrival and I... More

Enjoyed a 4 day break here in extremely hot August, absolute briiliant. The staff are very attentive and work very hard to keep the Riad in tip top condition, spotlessly clean and tidy. The court yard is just so peaceful and perfect for chilling after a experiencing the manic Souks, the pool area is relaxing with comfy beds and chairs.... More

A beautiful oasis of calm in the bustle of manic Marrakech! Love this place, the rooms are excellent, the food is superb and the staff are very helpful. It might be difficult to find, but it's well worth it.

This riad is a larger riad, but doesn't lose any of the personal service one expects from guesthouses. It is conveniently placed near the square in the Medina, and if you call they can arrange to meet you near the square when you arrive to show you the way through the alleyways. The cultural centre is a 10 minute walk,... More
