A lovely riad with friendly helpful and helpful staff, only a short walk to the square and many restaurants as food in the riad is expensive (avoid the food courts in the square during the night, they will attempt to overcharge by bringing things you think are included but then charge you for them). We were in one of the... More

We had the most amazing stay at the Riad Catalina. Perfectly located, within easy reach of great bars and restaurants and the main square. Even though it's so close to the hustle and bustle, the Riad is like an Oasis away from it all. The rooms are great, food delicious and the pool is ideal for afternoons in the sun.... More

The pool is not deep but serves it purpose after a hot days tripping the nearby souk. Not a flash place but if your are going for the experience of Marrakesh this it. Shop... More

Really nice, friendly Riad. Convenient for the main square and the souks. It's so easy to get lost in Marrakech, but this place is just around the corner from the main mosque and it's large tower, so easy to find your way back - assuming you've not got completely lost in the souks :)

My friend and I spent two nights at the Riad Catalina in July of 2016. To start, the place is absolutely stunning. The rooms were cozy and a perfect display of Moroccan architecture, style and comfort. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and went out of their way to make this an amazing stay for us. Their food was... More

If you want a real experience in Marrakech, this place is a great start. If you're used to staying at fancy hotels, this is not for you. This is for the adventure seeker who wants a local experience. Don't get me wrong, the grounds are stunning and the staff is amazing, but it is a boutique style setting. I was... More

Very nice, our room was very big, clean and with a beautiful decoration. Very near to the places of interest, they serve breakfast at any time, ours was at 5.45 but I heard people biking breakfast even earlier. On the negative side, very expensive restaurant, I would not have minded to have a meal in the beautiful patio area but... More
