This place is so lovely in many ways. The courtyard with the lovely sparrows, doves, pigeons and tortoises - its all just perfect and gorgeous. A wonderful oasis to escape from the madness of Marrakech. Perfect location for the Medina. The staff are all really lovely and attentive. I can't fault this place except for the beds in our room...

just got back from a weeks stay at the Riad Catalina and what can I say, it is beautiful. An oasis of peace and tranquility. My daugher and I had a room on the third floor which shared a very large terrace (tables/chairs/loungers) with another room. From the terrace you could see the Mosque and watch the sunset which was...

Bathroom has a window...

... I cannot add anything to the amazing reviews that this Riad has already had. I will simply say that this is where you must stay if you want to experience superb, friendly 'nothing is too much trouble' service and traditional Morrocan food and surroundings. With reference to the reviews below - I think 'Little Limpet' must have accidently posted...

We spent 4 days here in the Riad Catalina and soon realised that we made the right decision in choosing this piece of calm in a City of madness!!!! Everybody there made us welcome, and always had a smile on their faces. Service was excellent and always at hand. Food was good, we ate once in the evening, after a...

Its not a Hilton but its a place where you can enjoy and relax after a busy day.. The place is not far from the famous Djema El Fatna . The food is good and the rooms are clean and tidy. Its a place to enjoy and share the best of Marrakech..
