I stayed at a Riad near this place and thought i might as well go for a trip. The architecture is really nice however the place isnt as big as i thought it'd be.

I know, there is beautiful architecture and color EVERYWHERE in Morocco, but I really enjoyed visiting this palace and got MANY gorgeous photos here. I did think it was nicer than other palaces and kasbahs that we visited. I would definitely recommend a visit here if you have time and you just can't enough of Moroccan architecture!

Pleasant place but apart from quite pretty ceilings and mosaic, not much to see. But it did lead us to the pretty square next door (where Kosy Bar is) where there was a refreshing lack of hassle from shop owners, much cheaper pots and ceramics etc and no charges to take photos of the colourful spices! There is quite a... More

Probably you will do this together with Badi. It's better, different architecture, and smaller with a symmetric set of rooms much better decorated than the outdoors of Badi. It's a nice attraction to see, and read up on the history behind it as well, it's an interesting way to get in touch with the history of the place you are... More

Ruins are ruins!!!! Look for the storks and their nests. That was my favorite part! Photos can be taken and you'll wonder later....Where was this taken?

So, it's a palace. Nice tile work but that's it as far as I'm concerned. The story behind it is that the owner got too fat to climb the stairs so they never built a second floor. Entrance is 10 Dirham.

Amazing building, amazing tiling, even better ceilings! you will get a sore neck from staring upwards! Don't be embarrassed to just lay on the floor and soak up the beauty of the work on each of the ceilings! Got some wonderful photos here. Peaceful compared to the souks outside.

To be honest, there are far nicer palaces in Marrakech, but the Bahia is still well worth a visit. It is small and compact and so of the tile work is amazing. It is only €1 to get in so I can't exactly complain about the lack of things to see. it is interesting but only if you have French... More

At just 10dhms the palace was a bargain. Unfortunately there is a lack of information but the tiling is amazing - and the ceilings are even better and you will get a sore neck looking up all the time!
