Our must do list was the Bahia palace. We visited the palace and strolled the court yards and terrace which was beautiful. When it was time to visit the palace we were turned away and told that it was closed. Such a shame as we paid 20 dhirums to have a full tour. So if your planing to visit ask... More

You must hire a guide once inside the building! They show you and explain to you the rooms... no information at all! no signs... Its their way to trap the tourists!!! but it worth it!

For a palace, the El Bahia was underwhelming. You can see that once upon a time, this was a great palace with beautiful detailing in the ceilings and the walls. However, without proper maintenance and up-keep, this palace will soon become a giant stork nest like the El Badi. The walls could use some fresh paint, and the fountain could... More

When visiting here you must have a guide to benefit all the interesting bit and pieces of information. The history of this place is extraordinary, going back so many centuries. But I do stress you have a guide with you or the visit will be worthless. As the title says a palace and it was - for many different people.for... More

Tougher to find from deep within the souk, but worth the effort. It does have a little bit of a down at the heels feeling to it, but it also has stunning ceilings, doors, windows and atria. You can close your eyes and imagine living there!

It is well worth a visit to this lovely place. Upon entering through the gate, you are greeted by the lush gardens with their laden orange trees. The palace courtyard is also full of plants. While visitors are not able to see all of the rooms, those that are open have magnificent painted cedar ceilings, fabulous zellige tile, as well... More

So nice place to visit in Marrakech. It is located in the old part of the city and it is a wonderful building to visit.

Bahia Palace is good attraction to spend some amount of time away from the crowd and heat. It is maintained very neat. Trees and flowery plants occupy the entrance. Palace is typical of mosaic floors, decorated doors, fountain in between a huge hall etc. When we went some of the places were locked - so we visited almost 60% of... More

The history of the palace is very interesting, particularly the slave turned Grand Vizier aspect. The rooms themselves have beautiful tilework, woodwork, and painting. It is the height of craftsmanship at the start of the 20th Century. There is no furniture and no real information as you walk through, which is unfortunate.
