Worth a walk around. Be prepared for Groups of people walking around with Guides, so taking photo's can be a problem if you do not want throngs of people in them. Just be patient. On the corner of a very busy road junction. Worth standing there for a while and just watching and being amazed

I went to almost all the medersa and palaces and mosques in morocco. This is by far the most impressive one to see in all the cities. Don't miss out!!!!

The workmanship in the decoration is extraordinary, a 10 minute walk from the square and good to combine with a visit to El Badi Palace and The Saadian Tombs. All very cheap admission prices.

Worth a visit, beautiful mosaics and very tranquil. We didn't hire a guide and just enjoyed wandering around by ourselves.

In the heart of the old medina and a welcome break from the crowds. Some interesting architectural points and decoration which perhaps did not grip quite as much as they should because of the relatively poor quality of the particular guide - a rare occurrence. Good if you could break away, as we did and do your own thing and... More

Beautiful building in typical Moroccan style. Pity there wasn't any furniture there just to set it off but worth a visit.

You need to to have as well understanding how was life in the palace that the purpose... More

We enjoyed Bahia Palace and for the Dh10 entry fee it's definitely worth it. However, if you have seen the medersa and the Museum of Marrakech then it is pretty similar.

The palace was gorgeous. The architectural details outstanding. This place is very much worth a visit. Schedule at least an hour to just stand and admire the details.

This palace lies in the heart of the old medina. It is nice to gently stroll around the palace, you can get plenty of photo opportunities, there were lots of other tourists in the place but because it is quite a large site, it never felt over crowded.
