This is a lovely palace with an interesting story which you will have to read from your guidebook or on the internet. All the signboards are in French and there was no information in English during my visit. Many guidebooks say it closes at lunchtime but the staff told me it is open all day. It does not feature in... More

The architecture and mosaics are delightful and the painting of doors, windows and ceilings have been tastefully restored. It is a pleasure to walk through the many unfurnished rooms and glimpse at mirrors reflecting the gardens.

I love culture and found the palace very interesting. the mosaics, the painted walls and doors, it's impressing. Quite big building with a fantastic inner garden - the riad - which is very luxurious.

Entrance fee is cheap, 10 dirham per person , will take you around 1 to 2 hours to see it properly. This is the most beautiful building in Marrakech. Attention to the very small details and mosaics. If you like to take great pictures , stay behind the crowds and you'll get a chance to take amazing shots !

It's cheap and a nice little walk around. Cost for it is low and you can take some nice photographs.

Remember to take water as it can be hot and there are no facilities inside! Also a challenge to find it without a good map! Visit the KosyBar next door for drinks and Tapas afterwards...

If you are in the Jemaa el Fna square, you should take a short walk to the Bahia Palace. It´s a must if you love Moorish architecture or photography fan. You will be able to take beautiful pictures and the tile work and wood carvings are amazing. At a 10 dirham entrance fee, it´s a good bet. Recommend a visit.

This is classic Moroccan architecture, beautiful spaces, and then you see a woman in the smallest shorts and a tank top leaning against a 19th century marble fountain and practicing selfies. It is worth the visit because is truly amazing but when yo visit an attraction do it with respect

My wife and me visited this site in September 2014 as it was near our riad and was recommended. Costing only 10dh expectations should be low. The buildings are very beautiful but very sparse, no visual information or guides to explain. Maybe worth spending an hour of your time if you're passing by but I'd definitely not recommend going out... More
