I think it's worth checking out. It's inexpensive at 5/person (or maybe 10, I can't remember). The palace is old and abandoned. It's very 'okay,' but it doesn't take long to view and it's cheap. I would recommend going if you have the time.

The entrance fee is less than 1 euro, and really worth it. Beautiful, colourful and very interesting place to visit.

At 10 dirhams it is a low cost opportunity to look at the kind of environment that rich Marrakech's lived in in the past. The detail is superb and has been well-protected over the years.

The palace made in late 1800 looks two hundred years older if you look the decoration and paintings and wood carvings. Worth to visit, but you must be a cat lover - there are cats everywhere!

Highlight of our trip. Absolutely beautiful. Peaceful haven in the middle of the busy city. We wandered in by accident and spent a happy hour wandering round and taking photos. Well worth the short walk from the main square.

I really didn't remember that I went to this place until I returned home and looked at my pictures. A nice enough place, an oasis in a really crowded part of town, and full of moorish architecture for sure, but you are in Morocco and you are going to have the opportunity to see 100 of these types of places....

If you like morrocan archetecture - courtyards with fountains, gorgeous rooms with morrocan glazed tiles and the like - well this is for you. The entry was a bit haphazzard - some chap in a small portacabin (sure some people don't notice and just wander in). There is a row of modern gates - standing unused along the entrance pathway....

I thought this would be better than it was. It's a shame because if it had more money spent on it, it could be really nice. It is just the building, no furniture inside it.

Must see for architecture and history buffs. This very quiet palace is located within the city walls. The tourist map is not very specific and the souk is a maze in which it is easy to get lost. Asking for directions may get you lead into a shop to buy something, so ask a police officer or student for assistance... More
