The place has beautiful Islamic detailing in the mosaics, ceilings and millwork. Sadly all the information is in French and the rooms are all empty so you can only imagine what life was like when it was occupied.

This was a real treat and rather unexpected. The beautiful mosaics and carvings are worth seeing and the courtyards and delightfully quiet, cool and peaceful.

Loved the architecture and detail in the harems. Astonishing rooms we learned that the palace was built for an adviser to the ruler. Built in 1890

A beautiful museum with exquisite Moroccan architecture. Beautiful reception rooms with ceilings that are a work of art. I would not miss this!

It's all about "luxury, calm and lust" Baudelaire would say...Even though the place i suited for a visit, as a museum it needs some improvement. Then again, and speaking against the tourist's wish, some more care ought to be given to the wooden structure and paintings that are displayed since too much human presence are going to take its toll...

Entry is cheap. The gardens are not much, but the unfurnished palace has some nice features. Very little information in English, so read up a bit first. It got a bit crowded, but you can relax and stay as long as you want without being hassled.

This is an old palace in the Medina. It's only 10MAD to get in so you are not spending a lot to see it. That being said, it is okay to see but you will only need 20 minutes here, I think. It took longer for us to find it than we spent there. It is nice to see if... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the palace so the story of it was interesting. I would recommend it as a place of interest.
