I'd read previous reviews and this palace lived up to them. 10 dirhams gives you entrance to the delightful grounds teeming with cats and orange trees. You'll get a crick in your neck from looking upwards to take photos of the gorgeously ornate ceilings and archways. If I had to pick just one building to recommend in Marrakech this would... More

It's a cheap distraction, a haven from the hustle and bustle of the souk. Enjoy the peace and quiet or hire a guide for the full story.

This was part of a day trip and was okay - if you appreciate this sort of history/architecture then I would recommend it.

A guide will explain the use of colours and the pattern in the tiles , the decorated ceilings , the Man that lived there had 4 wife's & 23 concubines somebody spent a lot of time looking up. Well worth visiting .

Entry is 10 dirham and the palace is a quiet place for a quick vist. Without a guide it's difficult to see whats so special about the place.

Little oasis of calm, with beautiful interiors. It was a little difficult to find but we got there in the end.

The building is a beautiful example of artisan skills....and well worth a visit to imagine with the help of a guide telling the story how the people lived in those far off days.

I have been 2 in the palace and in the last time I hired a local tour guide. It was amazing to know all the history about the palace and she told as litle curiousities that make me see all around with different eyes. Nice and so cheap the ticket 1€.

This review is quite late. We visited the Bahia Palace but it was closed then. We were curious to see what this Palace has to offer but were not lucky enough to make another visit. Anyhow, we had some photos taken outside the Palace Gate.

The palace is an interesting place. Th layout of the rooms and courtyards gives an idea of the life there. The mosaics, wall, and ceiling decorations are in place but all the rooms are completely empty. A guide is helpful in gaining understanding.
