This is a really nice old palace. You walk through an archway and the gardens as you walk up to palace are very attractive and peaceful, especially considering the madness outside the grounds! There are lots of different rooms with beautiful old tiled archways, floors, ceilings and courtyards. It is amazing that they have survived so well.

The Bahia shows the most beautiful wooden carving, plaster work and mosaics that the Sultan could command. It is worth seeing but it won't take long. It may take you longer to find than to visit! Signposting is not the strong point of the Marrakech city council.

The fact that is my mother's name (Bahia) makes not perfectly objective about it ! I must say though, it is a beautiful place, where you can feel the story of old Morocco. The ruins are beautiful, the walls, the view on the mosque is absolutely wonderful if you get it through a certain angle.

the bahia palace is very nice for all the people interested in architecture and mosaics, the ceilings are wonderfully colored and maintained they were renovating the Hareem area, but we had a glimpse it looked stunning! so it's a must visit, but try to go very early in the morning because it's usually full of tourists that might not make...

As far as tourist attractions in Marrakech go, the Bahia Palace is one of the best there is. For an entry fee of 10 dirham (about 70p), you have to make sure that it's on your to-do list. Look up, look down, and look all around you. You'll see the most gorgeous craftsmanship - what more could you ask for?

Worth a visit, a modern (19th century) recreation of what the old Sultan's palaces would have been like. If you've seen the Alhambra then it will underwhelm you, if it's your first taste of Moorish architecture and decoration then you'll love it. Keep looking up! Loved the orange trees in the courtyard. Apparently there's a huge section still being restored,... More

Bahia Palace is very beautiful, I'm a huge fan of architecture and I loved spending time just enjoying the atmosphere of the place whilst sitting in the shade. But as there is no information for guests to read you could easily walk away having learnt absolutely nothing about it. It would probably be useful to bring a guide. It does... More

Moroccan interiors outstanding - the amount of detail. I think the fact that there is no furniture whatsoever it was difficult to visualise what it would have looked like. The public toilets were 'different', but at least they existed.

Visited the Bahia Palace one afternoon and sort of strolled through it. Donna is a quilter so we took pictures of some mosaic patterns for her idea book. The mosaics were nice, the rooms were cool on a hot day and the entry price modest. Not a "destination attraction" but worth a stroll if you are on that side of... More

Gorgeous building kept in very good condition, the detail was amazing! A real insight into how ornate and detailed Moroccan interiors can be . There also some cute stray cats wandering about too :)
